    Whoa! What an ending!!!BEST FRIENDS FOREVER by MARGOT HUNT is an intriguing, enjoyable, fast-paced, and intense psychological thriller that had me totally engaged and interested right from the very first page. I was totally immersed in this tale about the relationship between two best friends and the suspicious death of one of their husbands. I had fun trying to figure out what was going on here with what was real and what wasn't with their frien...

    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...

Dropping into Alice’s life we know she is a busy wife and mother who never expected to find the police on her doorstep but that is just what happened to her one morning as she was making breakfast before getting her children off to school.Alice’s friend’s husband had died recently from what she thought ...

These two women are from very different worlds: Kat is extremely wealthy, while Alice and her husband struggle to make ends meet. You’d think they have nothing in common, yet somehow these two women click. And just like that they ...

    This was a nicely done thriller. However, you could see what was going on from almost the get go. I would have to say that the ending was somewhat of a surprise. Do we ever really know people?

    Not nearly as exciting as “For Better And Worse” .... which comes out later this year. In “Best Friends Forever”, I didn’t believe Alice and Kat ‘were’ best friends’ ...There was husband bashing - drinking together - rich Bitch and gullible mom-connecting, but best friends? Not even!!! As for the husbands, they didn’t even get a chance to be chopped liver - because neither of their characters were developed enough... making not ...

    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’...

    Margot Hunt is the pseudonym for chick lit and women's fiction author Whitney Gaskell who has now decided to add thrillers to her repertoire. BEST FRIENDS FOREVER is her first psychological thriller and judging by this first attempt is well worth pursuing.Alice thought she knew everything about her best friend Kat, from the secrets of her wealthy family to the fact that behind closed doors Kat’s husband Howard is a drunk and a bully.But now How...

    Margot Hunt is a pseudonym for a writer with twelve previous books, but this is her first psychological thriller. She should write more of them!She did a great job developing main characters Kat and Alice, and they felt real. She also deftly turned the table ever so slowly on me before I realized she’d done so. At the end of the book, I had to think about what had gone before. I like that.I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t say an...

    3.5 StarsThis was a fairly entertaining psychological thriller. The first half was good, but I found that the middle of the book slightly dragged and was getting sorta boring. It probably didn’t help that I had to abandon it for awhile to finish another book. The last few chapters had me flipping the pages faster than I could read! I really didn’t see that ending coming and that earned the extra 1/2 star. ⭐⭐⭐ 3.5 StarsThis was a fairl...

    Wow, this book was fantastic! I was sucked in from the very first few pages! I loved diving into Alice and Kat’s relationship and trying to figure out what was real and was all a manipulation.

    4 Very Suspenseful StarsThis thriller started with a bang and didn't stop until the very last page. It kept me guessing until the end. SUMMARYThe story opens with the police knocking on Todd and Alice Campbell's door to ask Alice for some background information regarding the death of Howard Grant, her best friend Kat's husband. Howard had been found on the deck of his pool where he had apparently fallen to his death from a second storey balcony. ...

    3.5 stars. Enjoyed the storyline in this tale of suspense - I found all the women characters in this book to be on the spectrum of unlikeable, perhaps some were interesting, others pathetic and one just mildly irritating. That’s why this book didn’t get 4 stars from me. The mystery itself is well played out and the landscape in which it plays out is well described. Good vacation read as it’s hard to put down.

    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...

    If you’re looking for a super fun, engaging thriller that’s on the lighter side with no graphic descriptions and gruesome murders, Best Friends Forever is the book for you! It was a fast read that kept me totally interested and while I predicted a few things, there were enough surprises that I was left satisfied.This is told solely from Alice’s point of view and it goes back and forth between the present day and three years prior when she f...
