Her Best Friend
by Sarah Wray
Sylvia and Victoria were best friends. When they were teenagers, Victoria was killed, and Sylvia’s life was changed. Now it’s 20 years later, and Sylvia returns to her home town after her mother’s death. Sylvia had hoped to never return, and is now confronted with secrets from the past. Things are only complicated when a man, Sam, shows up in town to film a documentary about Victoria’s death in hopes of finally solving the case.
The story was told in the third person point of view, with alternating chapters of the past and the present. Sylvia was the main character, but Sam had a few chapters devoted to his story.
This was well written, and the town and characters all seemed cold and dreary. It was a slow paced book, and not a lot happened. While it wasn’t one that I wanted to read in one sitting, I was curious as to what had really happened to Victoria.
I received a copy of this book from Bookouture and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
