The Friend Reviews
I won this book in a Goodreads drawing and I loved it! It was intriguing, suspenseful and full of twists. I read it in two sittings because I just had to know what happened.
I adore this author and have loved everything by her. And this book - wow! From the first electrifying, attention grabbing page I was hooked. I could not part with this story. I read it in one sitting, the characters taking root in my head and demanding my full attention. And even now, days later, they haven't let go. I am still thinking of their motivations, the events that led them to do what they did. The writing is exquisite, there are so many wow moments. This author goes from strength to s ...more
This was spine-tingly creepy -- delightfully so! It took me a bit to really engage with the characters, but oh, that ending. All those twists and turns. Driscoll does a wonderful job, and I can see why The Friend has received so many five-star reviews. It didn't quite measure up to that for me, but I will give it 4/5 solid stars.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one, it's had me banging through it ALL DAY.

Well, now. If, like me, you have trust issues sometimes and don't like meeting new people, let this story be a lesson!

She thought Emma could be trusted. They were kindred spirits after all. But how well does Sophie know Emma anyway? Was what happened to Ben truly an accident? Or is there something more sinister going on ...more
I was completely hooked from beginning to end in this fantastic psychological thriller. Full of suspense, I can honestly say I had no idea at all which way the plot would go until the twist was laid out before me. It was definitely one of those 'Noooooo' moments as I finally realised what was going on!
