#bookofthemonth : The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

This book was recommended by a co-worker, she said she read it in less than a week and couldn't put it down. She let me borrow it, and I started reading while at work, and was that a mistake! All I want was to continue reading it. While I don't know if I would 100% rank this as a full on thriller, it is suspenseful and exciting. Its fair to say that I loved this book, it was clever, fats paced and chilling in places. 

"The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances is a gripping and chilling debut psychological thriller, based on the fall-out following an unforgivable lie. Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but she hasn't had the same opportunities as Daniel. And she wants Laura's life.

Cherry comes to the family wide-eyed and wants to be welcomed with open arms, but Laura suspects she's not all that she seems.

When tragedy strikes, an unforgivable lie is told. It is an act of desperation, but the fall-out will change their lives forever. "
