    Disappointing

    Thank-you to #Netgalley and #Bookouture for giving me the opportunity to read an advanced copy of #Herclosestfriend in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: Two friends. Pop music blares from the radio. She sings drunkenly from the back seat. The thrash of the windscreen wipers against the driving rain. The screech of tyres. A thud..... My thoughts: Two friends Naomi and Sophie once inseperable have to face a long kept secret from their past. Sophie has been hiding the truth of what really happened while Naomi must come to terms with the events that occurred that fateful night from what she had been lead to believe over the years. What follows is a story of two friends who once had an unbreakable bond but was based on lies, to a friendship that becomes toxic and deadly. What would one person do to make sure that the truth is never revealed? This is the first book I have read by Clare Boyd and I was excited to read this book based on the synopsis but for me personally this fell a bit short. I appreciate the effort that was put into telling this story. I just couldn't connect with the characters and found it to be repetitive and drawn out. Also as an animal lover I found it hard to read in a certain part of the book what felt like animal torture to me. Whilst this book didn’t resonate with me I still wanted to finish it and I am sure there will be readers out there that will enjoy it. Reading an unfavorable review doesn’t effect my decision in reading a book so I do hope that for anyone reading this, that they will still read it if it appeals to them. Having said all that I did like the writing style and I will still read more of Clare's work in the future.

    Great Book

    Seriously twisted!!! I am reeling over Her Closest Friend by Clare Boyd! This book puts the twist in twisted! It brings to mind the phrase “with a friend like this, who needs enemies?” This devious tale of friends Sophie and Naomi who met in college at Exeter is shocking, dark, and addicting! I truly couldn’t put it down. Fans of psychological thrillers will love this book! About the Book When Sophie’s marriage starts to crumble in the wake of her husband Adam’s affair, her best friend Naomi is the one person who supports her no matter what. But even Naomi must admit that Sophie can be a difficult person to be friends with. As magnetic and charming as Sophie can be, she is also as devious and manipulative. Naomi can look past those moments, though, because Sophie is so broken. But Sophie needs more from Naomi than she can ever know. Sophie has held onto a terrible secret to protect Naomi all of these years. And now just as Naomi continues to flourish, Sophie’s life crumbles. It isn’t fair, is it? Naomi and Sophie are the closest of friends. They can weather anything together. Can’t they? Reflection Well, I honestly don’t know what to say about this book because I’m so afraid of spoiling it! From the very first twist (and trust me when I say, there are many), I was shocked and delighted by this thriller. Truly, I was getting whiplash from the amount of times a new twist was thrown into the mix! I wish I could say more about them, but this is one readers need to discover on their own! Sophie and Naomi are just absolutely the epitome of unlikeable characters. And yet, I can’t help but kind of hope they can save eachother amidst all of their disfunction! The way Boyd tells the back and forth is masterful—the same events unfold from each perspective. And the ending is just magnificent! I read the entire last few chapters with my jaw hanging open in shock, awe, delight, and horror! What an ending! This is a book you won’t want to miss this spring!
