Review: A Forsaken Friend by Sue Featherstone & Susan Pape

March 18, 2018

About the Book

No-one said friendship was easy. 

Things can’t get much worse for Teri Meyer. If losing her job at the university and the regular allowance from her dad’s factory isn’t bad enough, now her ex-best friend has gone and stolen her ex-husband! Well, to hell with them all. A few weeks in the countryside at her brother’s smallholding should do the trick – and the gorgeous and god-like neighbour might help.

But then there’s Declan, not to mention Duck’s Arse back in Yorkshire…

It’s not as if Lee Harper set out to fall in love with her best friend’s ex-husband. But, for once, her love life is looking up – except for all the elephants in the room, not to mention Mammy’s opinion on her dating a twice-divorced man. Perhaps things aren’t as rosy as she first thought. And now with one family crisis after another, Lee’s juggling more roles – and emotions – than she ever imagined.

Maybe sharing her life with a man wasn’t such a grand idea.  

The FRIENDS trilogy, compared to BRIDGET JONES, continues in this heart-warming and hilarious hoot as two best friends navigate men, careers, family and rock bottom in this brilliant sequel to A FALLING FRIEND.

 

My Thoughts

Okay, so I cried… and snorted, and laughed. This is a terrific follow up from A Falling Friend (Book One). More of  Teri and Lee and their lives, families and friends. Teri is… Teri. Picking herself up from the bottom, she is on the look out for a new job (and a new man).

Lee, who now has Dan, has her own problems. Family problems.

I love that this book is written from deep inside the point of view of each character. Both sides told with the honestly and dishonesty of a person’s memory and flawed personality traits. The way we remember an event, the way our own mind tells us how something happened is shown so clearly in the opposing yet parallel stories. Deeply enjoyable, deeply satisfying. A Forsaken Friend is a great read.  If you read the first, definitely pick up this one.
