  • Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*
    EXCERPT: Suddenly it all became clear. Kat wasn’t just wealthy. She came from capital M money. The sort of money that doesn't just last a lifetime, but through multiple generations thereafter. It would be nothing to a multimillionaire to set up his daughter in a Palm Beach art gallery. Just a carrot to tempt his headstrong daughter to return home to South Florida. I had never thought of myself as a covetous person and firmly believed jealousy w...

  • Monica
    Another fantastic psychological thriller to round out my 2017! It was extremely well written and I was quickly invested in all the characters. Although Kat and Alice’s friendship seemed unusual, they had a genuine connection. The novel was fast paced, moving from the present to various prior points in the women’s relationship. If anything seemed forced, it would be the short period, only three years, they were best friends. Apparently that’...

    I’m right back into my psychological thrillers right now having had a bit of a meh time about them where I felt I was reading the same story over and over again, so I made it a mission to seek out the ones that can surprise me. If you surprise me you get Brownie points. They are not worth anything but you know, it is fun for me.Best Friends Forever did manage to surprise me. As well as that it was a brilliant page turner, with a couple of cleve...

  • Gare Billings
    This is one of those novels that has a plot that really doesn't do it justice. This novel starts off with a bang and doesn't hold up until the chilling and destructive final pages.The premise to this one is not only unique, but really tells a tale of friendship and a ton of aspects of betrayal in a multi-layered plot that is not only spellbinding, but utterly addicting as well. This is Gossip Girl meets Gone Girl for every generation possible. Th...
  • Eve K
    How to get a 4* rating on your shitty psychological thriller. -Create a protagonist who has no personality. Make sure she's a selfish hypocrite (so edgy), a bitch to her husband (to appeal to the unhappy housewives) and has wealth-envy (to appeal to all the socialists).-Make sure your manuscript is 75% useless information.-Make the cops and anyone else in a position of authority or esteem behave in a comically OTT manner as if they're acting in a...

    What an amazing debut from Margot Hunt! Best Friends Forever immediately opens with a bang and I was completely captivated within minutes. The novel is extremely well written and constantly leaves the reader guessing who should be trusted. I absolutely loved the twists and thrills in this novel and totally did not guess the ending, even though there were times I thought I would be able to. I loved the characters in this novel. Hunt did a fantasti...
  • OutlawPoet
    I have to give credit where credit is due. The author played me. When I realized what she had done, I was completely gob smacked. She did it fairly. There things all through the story that just bugged me, but I never put it together.Brava.I was entertained by this book, even as I found myself disliking most of the characters. I found myself really bugged by how neatly people allowed themselves to be manipulated. My lack of character love perhaps ...
  • Heidi
    Twisted female friendships usually make the perfect basis for a thriller, so I was instantly drawn to the premise of Best Friends Forever. Kat and Alice are polar opposites: Kat, the impulsive and slightly spoiled socialite from a rich family background, living in a big mansion with her successful financier husband; and Alice, the introverted brainiac who approaches life’s problems much like she would solve one of her logic puzzles. As they say...

    Sometimes friendship can spark between two people people who just meet. Sometimes between two people who are so very different. This is exactly what happens with Kat and Alice when they meet at the airport while waiting for their planes. It didn’t take them long to become close either, they bonded rather quickly. They bonded over their troubles, their husbands, money, even the death of one their babies. They shared everything with each other, t...

  • Dayle (the literary llama)
    3.5-4 stars, I'm still deciding. I thought it was incredibly well written and I loved the ending; Hunt didn't take the easy way out. But there was a section in the middle which felt a bit stagnant. We were given so much backstory that the story in the present seemed to stall. It started to lose it's drive. But overall I enjoyed the book. More detailed thoughts hopefully coming soon...I was provided a free advance copy in exchange for an honest re...
