The Best Friend – Shalini Boland

Hello my loves, welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is a book review on the above title. This book was such an amazing read, I was completely hooked from beginning to end. I ended up reading this book in just under four days – I just couldn’t put it down. Let’s dive in with the review shall we?

the best friendA Summary of the book:

Toxic school mums, money worries, paranoia and murder…. The Best Friend is a chilling psychological thriller from the Bestselling Author of The Girl from the Sea.

They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer…. Wrong.

Louisa’s new best friend has it all – the house, the status, the money. But she’s also hiding a dark secret. And as Louisa is drawn into her friend’s life, events take a chilling turn. “Sit on the edge of your seat and prepare for the ride!”

My Opinion:

Louisa has an amazing life, a great husband and an adorable son (Joe) – she also has her own writing column in the local newspaper. The couple decided to move their son to a posh new school and Louisa is desperate for Joe to fit in with his new class. When she becomes friends with Darcy, she finds out that their sons are best friends – things seem to be great, almost too great… are things really too good to be true?!

I was so tense throughout this book, relating to how Louisa is feeling about every situation. It just seemed that Darcy was just too good to be true. She was too nice, just always there lurking around. The plot twists were just so intense, you never really knew what was next. I could not figure Darcy out for the life of me.

Do I recommend this book? YES! 100% yes, it was so intense and capturing, I just couldn’t put it down. If you are looking for a new thriller to read, I would definitely point you in the direction of this one.

Have you read this book?
