BOOK REVIEW: What my Best Friend Did by Lucy Dawson

whatmybestfrienddid.jpgHaving not yet read Lucy Dawson's first book, His Other Lover (although I only recently picked up a copy and it's still on the to-be-read list!) I wasn't sure what to expect from What My Best Friend Did. But I'm a lover of mysterious novels, which this one seemed to be, and so I couldn't resist.
When magazine photographer Alice first meets TV presenter Gretchen Bartholomew on a shoot, her life instantly changes. The pair become best friends, much to Alice's vast enjoyment - after all, life has become a little bit boring with work and although she loves her live in boyfriend - or at least, thinks she still does - Alice needs some more excitement. And who better to provide it than unexpected best friend Gretchen?

Gretchen is fun loving, beautiful and hilarious - all the perfect ingredients for a best friend. And Alice comes with an added advantage - her handsome and successful brother, Bailey. In New York on a work shoot, Alice finally meets up with Bailey, who is a world away from her stable boyfriend back at home. Can she be tempted?

However, when it seems that life is going swimmingly (besides Bailey, of course), Alice isn't aware that Gretchen is about to bring her life crashing down around her. Starting with her boyfriend.

I don't want to go into the story too much, as What My Best Friend Did contains so many unexpected twists and surprises that to reveal any of them would spoil the book - so I'll stop there. The book is dark, mysterious and gripping, and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Granted, there was a point in the book where some confusion arose, but the well-written story and characters kept it on track, and it still turned out to be a fantastic read.

Needless to say, I can't wait to read His Other Lover, and I look forward to what Lucy Dawson has to offer in the future.

Rating: 4/5
