My Mini Thoughts

Ready for another story about a crazy friend? Meet Marie who has never had a problem making friends, but she does have a problem keeping them.  Marie makes each friend of the moment her obsession, and has been doing so since she was little.  Then she meets Nina who has the perfect life and goes on to marry the perfect man and have perfect children.  Marie’s obsession is taken to a whole new level when she tries desperately to have a baby with her boyfriend.  Then she too could have the perfect child like Nina.  When Nina is on her deathbed she asks Marie for a favor.  Marie has every intention of keeping her promise, and she does, but she takes it to a whole new level.

Marie’s character creeped me out!  Her obsession with Nina’s life after she died was bizarre.  She took over Nina’s role not only with their book club, but also with Nina’s kids and husband.  Nobody liked it, but nobody was surprised.

I thought this book was going to be all about Marie’s obsession with Nina’s life, but I was wrong.  The author throws in a good twist and shows us that Nina did not have the perfect life after all.

If you like a lot of drama in your books, then be sure to pick this one up July 7th!

Goodreads Synopsis

Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down.

Nina and Marie were best friends—until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes.

But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust.

What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants.

Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own…
