A young widow with a five-year old daughter, Karen is barely surviving with her temp jobs. To save on cost, she shares an apartment with Jim, an old college roommate and friend. Accepting that there was no "spark" between them, Karen and Jim became best friends as they pursued their own romantic relationships.

In a temporary assignment in Venice, Italy, Karen met Mark, a very successful lawyer for New Orleans. With a "spark" between them even while they were in Venice, Karen and Mark continued their romantic liaison alternately visiting each other in Montreal and New Orleans.

But, everything is not it seems. As Karen's relationship with Mark deepens, she also notices how Jim, her nerdy friend is becoming a babe magnet.

***MY TAKE ON THE STORY***
Beautifully told, the story is actually slow in the beginning, yet you emphatize with the feeling of loss and sadness that permeates Karen. Looking at it from another angle, perhaps the author deliberately made the pacing that way.

Karen's awakening from a grieving widow to a vibrant woman was also slow as the audience saw the small steps that she took. She blossomed into our very eyes. Her love interests - Mark and Jim, also blossomed into our eyes as we became familiar with their qualities. Even the minor characters were fleshed out nicely by the author.

Added bonus is the tour of Montreal, Venice and New Orleans. If you haven't been to these places, you can actually see them in your mind's eye as the author described them.

Karen's Best Friend was a wonderful story of how the love between friends developed into a deep love between a man and a woman. Karen, who was widowed ten months earlier, and her daughter, Cindi, moved In with Jim, who had known Karen for 14 years as a platonic friend, in order for both of them to afford a nice apartment. Karen wanted to be able to complete her college education and Jim wanted the freedom to write a novel. Other reviewers have already written a synopsis of the story so I'll just say that the relationships were very believable.

All of the people had well-rounded, complex and three-dimensional personalities and the dialogues were completely authentic as well as fun to read. The imagery was fantastic, especially the descriptions of Montreal, Venice, and New Orleans; they were so graphic and realistic that I felt like I would know exactly where to go (and what to eat), if I ever visited them. The writing was very well done but the editing could have used a good proofreader. However, the errors were not bad enough to interfere with the flow of the story.

I really admired the way that Karen refused to tolerate any form of abuse from Mark and stopped the relationship immediately when the abuse became physical. I only have two small criticisms: there was no translation of the French when there was a quote from Beaudelaire and when Karen and Jim did become intimate, there was no mention of them using protection.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this story very much and I would definitely recommend it. I'd give it a grade of A-.

This was a really good story with lots of trials, tribulations and emotion. The author does a good job of developing the story and the characters. The story does have both a hero and heroine as well as a "villain" but the story is centered more around Karen. I found it unbelievable that Karen just all of a sudden realized she was in love with Jim. That realization could have been developed better. The dialogue was a bit choppy which kept the story from flowing well. I could not find a whole lot of information about this author so I would assume she is fairly new. That would explain the choppy dialogue. With the author's imagination and creativity with the plot, I believe in time her writing will become more refined and will result in great books.

Although it was entertaining to read, I thought the story line was predictable from the start. The physical abuse
and her bonding with the first wife were curves I didn't expect.

Like the book, but don't love it ... I wasn't too fond of the way the scenes flowed. For some reason I could connect with the characters.

Would make a good travel guide but as a romance book it is really sappy. Not believable on any level.
