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.
After a chance meeting in an airport, Alice and Kat form a friendship. They quickly become best friends, until one of them losses her husband. The police find the death to be suspicious, and look at Alice as a suspect.
The story was told from Alice’s point of view and had shifting timelines. The friendship formed three years before the suspicious death, and the story covered the beginning of the friendship to present day.
Best Friends Forever is a well-written, fast-paced thriller with relatable and interesting characters. I enjoyed the twists and was curious how it would all end. A good read for fans of psychological thrillers.
