My Sweet Friend by H.A. Leuschel Blog Tour
Publication Date: December 6, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Women’s Fiction
A stand-alone novella from the author of Manipulated Lives
A perfect friend … or a perfect impostor?
Alexa is an energetic and charismatic professional and the new member of a Parisian PR company where she quickly befriends her colleagues Rosie and Jack. She brings a much-needed breath of fresh air into the office and ambitiously throws herself into her new job and friendships.
But is Alexa all she claims to be?
As her life intertwines with Rosie and Jack’s, they must all decide what separates truth from fiction. Will the stories that unfold unite or divide them? Can first impressions ever be trusted?
In this original novella, H.A. Leuschel evokes the powerful hold of appearances and what a person is prepared to do to keep up the facade. If you like thought-provoking and compelling reads with intriguing characters, My Sweet Friend is for you.
We all make up stories to understand the world around us and our place
within. We often believe what we want to believe and consciously or
unconsciously interpret what we see and what we hear from a restricted
perspective. Furthermore, outer appearances and life’s circumstances
equally tend to influence and challenge the story we tell ourselves and
others … which in the case of ‘My Sweet Friend’ ends up taking on
different versions because – to make matters worse – one of the main
protagonists is also a liar.…(H.A. Leuschel)

‘You’re like my mum was when I was a teenager, taking me to
shops and make-up displays, thinking she could pep up my looks,’ I said.
‘She didn’t do a very good job, did she?’ She winked, her words
leaving a sharp pain of hurt.
‘If you say so,’ I said eventually, my eyes focused on a row of
buttons running down a tight fitting red dress. ‘You never mention your
family. Visibly, they’ve done a better job.’
‘Oh, my parents,’ she answered dismissively, her tone of voice flat.
‘It’s complicated. We talk from time to time but we don’t have much in
common. It’s a shame really, considering I’m their only child, but I don’t
care now.’ It was all she ever said.
‘I couldn’t imagine… that’s so sad, Alexa. My mum and I are very
‘Please don’t,’ Alexa said, her eyes lowered and lips twitching as if
she were about to cry.
‘Oh, Alexa, I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to upset you.’ She looked up
at me with an empty stare and nodded.
‘Fine. Just don’t mention it again,’ she said coldly, slipping back into the
changing room without another word.
