When We Were Friends by Tina Seskis
Thanks to LoveReading.co.uk I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review...
There had always been the six of us, since they met at university twenty-five years ago, they'd faced everything together. Break-ups, marriages, motherhood and death. They were closer than sisters, their lives bled into each other. But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed.
And then they were five.....
This is the first book that I've read by Tina Seskis, I didn't realise that this book was previously released and published under the title A SERPENTINE AFFAIR. I really enjoyed this book from the very first page, the style of writing was perfect as the story flowed really well throughout. It reminded me alot of been in been in college, hanging out with friends where we'd continue to be lifelong friends.
This was no way a chic-lit book, more of a thriller as the chapters gathered pace and webs of lies were spun and secrets kept that they all hoped would be kept that way forever. I really liked the way the chapters were set in both the past and the present as it explained how these girls became friends.
I would recommend this for readers who like thrillers or mysteries with a twist but if you're looking for a read about love, friendship and how far people will go to keep secrets buried then grab this book, curl up on the couch with a glass of wine and a large bar of chocolate and sink into the story.
When We Were Friends will available on Kindle and published in paperback on 23rd April 2015.
