The Best Friend Kindle Edition
From Liz Harris, award-winning author of The Dark Horizon comes an epic story of love, loss and betrayal that follows the lives of four girls in London.
Confident that the woman with whom Robert, her husband of nine years, has run off, wouldn’t be one of the three girls who’d been her closest friends since they’d started sharing a place in Camden Town eleven years earlier, Caroline walks up to the door of the house where, she’s discovered, Robert is living with the unknown woman, and rings the bell.
Reeling from shock when she hears the voice of the woman inside the house, her mind sweeps back to Camden Town eleven years ago, and the reader follows the story of trainee barrister Emily, would-be actress Terri Lee, PA Louise, and of Caroline herself.
The final chapter returns to the present, and the reader learns which of the three girls has stolen Caroline’s husband.
The Best Friend is perfect for readers of Penny Vincenzi, Danielle Steele, Jilly Cooper, Diane Chamberlain and Barbara Taylor Bradford.

About the author
Top review from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book was written in an easy-to-read style. The chapter lengths were good and the relationships each had were interesting to read about. The relationships between each of the women, with very different personalities was interesting, too.
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
