Best Friends Forever
Summary: How well do you really know your best friend?
Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.
Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
When I saw this on Netgalley, I immediately requested it. It just sounded so good. And the opening- I loved it.
Alice is a logical person- she does not let passion, emotions and all that jazz get in her way. She writes logic books for crying out loud!
Kat, on the other hand, is the friend who has it all on a silver platter. She’s smart, beautiful and happy in her life- except for her marriage.
These 2 become friends- unlikely friends at first, but soon grow close and the kind of friends that you can tell anything to. Until Howard dies and the friendship changes.
What I liked:
I reallllllllllly liked how Margot Hunt set the story up.
I loved the cover.
And the ending. Because when it’s all revealed- it makes sense.
What I didn’t love:
Honestly- Kat and Alice. I didn’t hate them, but I never found myself rooting for one or the other and I REALLLLLLY wanted to strangle Alice- when your friend stops talking to you, all of a sudden, after her husband dies- logically, she may be grieving- BUT step carefully, dear lady- because I would take those odds to Vegas that she’s setting you up.
Bottom line: Enjoyable. Worth reading. A great vacation book!
