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.

Twists and turns

This book keeps you entertained throughout. A really good read with lots of suspense and empathy for the main character however is it misplaced?

Very, very good!

This is a very character driven, subtlety written psychological thriller. While not as “extreme” as some psych thrillers, there is a good twist at the end. The story kept me interested, and it progressed well, with no “stalled” areas to endure through! The narration was great, also. This is well worth a credit!

Ugh

The story was good, not the best, but good. The narration was horrendous. Sarah Naughton’s sing-songy voice almost made me want to pull my hair out. It was distracting from the actual story. I finished the book, but barely.

kinda slow

lots of details about family life. You feel like you know these women or at least met them once in your life. A great twist and almost believable end.

OMG!!

I totally loved it! So many theories crossed my mind and even in the my mind was blown. Also, the performance of the narrator was amazing, without saying "Todd said" "Kat/Cat answered" I could tell who was speaking at all times. Simply amazing

good but could have been great

I liked this listen for the most part but the ending (which was actually a neat twist) comes way too fast and I think missed a lot of opportunities to lay groundwork throughout. Will try the author again for sure but will hope for a little more follow through/fleshing out next time!

OMG that ending!

This book is hard to review, not because I was on the fence about liking it, but because the best part is the ending and I can't give that away! Best Friends Forever captured my attention and held it all the way to the last word. I loved the edgy friendship between the two women, the superb character development, and the narration. Don't miss this epic psychological thriller!

Derivative and flat

Another women in peril novel w cardboard characters and an ending you can see from the first page. Decently entertaining.

Margot Never Disappoints

Once again the writing was consistent and evenly paced. The ending surprised everyone and I loved every minute of it. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
