Best Friends Forever
January 2018; MIRA; 978-0778331131
audio, ebook, print (336 pages)
women's fiction, suspense
Kat and Alice meet in an airport when their flight to Florida is delayed. They hit it off over drinks and get together for lunch a week after they got home.  They are two VERY different people - Alice is a stay at home mom with 2 kids and a husband that she isn't getting along with well, she was a college professor but quit to stay home and she and her husband are struggling with bills. Being a mom is the most important part of her life. She doesn't really have any good friends - just acquaintances from her kids' school functions and really is at a place in her life that she needs a best friend. Kat is multi-rich. Her father is well known all over Florida, she has a daughter in medical school and a husband that she says she doesn't love. She also seems to have no friends but doesn't act at first like that really bothers her. She owns an art museum and travels frequently.  Once they become friends, their lunches last longer and involve more alcohol as they tell each other their life stories and share confidences.  As the novel begins, the police come to Alice's front door to question her about the death of Kat's husband. She thought his death had been an accident but the police seemed to think that it was a homicide and Alice was their main suspect. As Alice gets pulled further into the blame for the murder, Kat is refusing to return phone calls and texts, and Alice begins to wonder how much she really knows her best friend.

Best Friends Forever is told in alternating chapters - one is present day and one traces the evolution of the friendship between Kat and Alice. The way it is written with the alternating chapters makes the book even more suspenseful and kept me turning pages to see what the real story was in this friendship.

This is a great read and even if you think you have things figured out early on, don't be too sure that you do because there are lots of twists and turns.  It's a book that will you keep you turning pages until the end to find out if Alice and Kat are really best friends forever!
