My Thoughts:

The Perfect Friend by Barbara Copperthwaite

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 beguiling stars to The Perfect Friend! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Alex has lost it all. Her husband has moved out, and her children want nothing to do with her. All she has is her closest friend, Carrie, who she trusts implicitly. But should she?

Alex has anorexia, and she meets Carrie in a support group. Carrie has terminal cancer and likewise has no one to depend on other than Alex. It’s the perfect storm of circumstances to unite two needy best friends. Carrie also wholeheartedly trusts Alex, but should she?

If you like unreliable narrators, you’ve scored two here! The Perfect Friend is a quick, captivating read. At first I felt deeply for Alex and Carrie and their personal struggles, but then I was not sure where I was being led by these two! My inner skeptic put my guard up, but that did not keep me from enjoying their story.

Overall, The Perfect Friend was an original and entertaining read, and it had me beguiled from beginning to end.

Thank you to Bookouture for the ARC. The Perfect Friend will be published on July 6, 2018.
