A Forsaken Friend by Sue Featherstone & Susan Pape @SueF_Writer @wordfocus


Book Description:

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 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:

A Forsaken Friend follows on from A Falling Friend. I think the authors have given plenty of background though for anyone who hasn’t read the first book, so don’t think you will feel like you are missing out by diving straight in.

What a way to start a story off! I won’t say exactly what but lets just say I was getting slightly hot under the collar. The visions the authors had jumping up in my head, well I’m glad my husband couldn’t see them!

It was good to catch back up with Teri and Lee again. The story alternates between both characters so we get to see everything from their point of view. Sadly things seem to be going a bit wrong in Teri’s world as she is struggling to hold it all together. Lee on the other hand is all loved up with Teri’s ex but is about to have some problems of her own.

I have to admit Teri is my favourite between the two. Im not sure why as she is self absorbed yet she brings so much fun into this book. Lee is the more sensible one and probably reminded me of myself. They are both great to read about though and it was a shame that these two really good friends are going through a bad patch. I have to admit, I’m not sure how I would feel if my best friend got together with an ex husband, of which I don’t have one thankfully lol.

A Forsaken Friend is a heartwarming, fun and at times emotional read. Was quite sad to get to the end as both women have grown on me dramatically and I am very invested in their story. With how the story ends though, I am pretty hopeful that there will be another one, of which i can’t wait!

My thanks to the authors for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
