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.
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, the good and the bad. Sounds like a great friendship to me. But was it really…
Kat and Alice came from very different worlds. Kat came from money, and a lot of it. She was quite the socialite, with parties and museums and art gallery shows. While Alice had given up her career as a professor to stay at home with her children. Time were hard but she was happy and things were okay for her. And to see them together, no one would ever suspect they were any different. Kat was eve there for Alice and her husband when financial times were hard and never though twice about it. Alice was writing a logician book for kids and it would pay off soon. And their friendship continued one, not a mention of it. They spent time at resorts by the pool, relaxing. Alice and Kat were the best of friends. But, when Kat’s husband is found dead though, everything changes. Detectives start snooping around and Alice finds herself being questioned about her friendship with Kat and her husband, among other questions about Kat.
Alice has been cut off from Kat. She won’t return her call, her texts. Her family has told her stay away from Kat and Alice is distraught. It doesn’t take her long to start to question things about their friendship, I mean, Alice is a smart woman. Why does Kat, the “best friend” not want you there for her while she’s grieving. Why won’t she talk you to her at all. Alice begins to rethink if she really knew Kat at all. While all of this going on, some pretty crazy things happen that make her second guess everything she has been led to believe about Kat and her life for the past 3 years. And it just kept coming. And that just kept me turning the pages. I wanted to know what was going on with this woman. Did she kill her husband? She has money, did she pay someone to do it? It all kept me on my toes trying to figure it all out.
Now, this is one ending that I did not see coming at all. And I do mean, Not At All. I think I sat with my mouth open for page after page with shock! Very clever writing! Best Friends Forever was completely captivating from start to finish and had everything that I love in a psychological thriller.
