Friend Of The Family opening line: The photo album felt heavy in her hands.
You have taken yourself out of the council home and into a mansion. Working your way up the corporate ladder in an environment you love. But when your dream job becomes available, everything in your life seems to be falling apart. Is the destruction from your old life, and why now?
Friend Of The Family
She thinks your life is perfect. She thinks you don’t deserve it.
Amy is more than happy to offer the daughter of an old friend work experience at her London magazine. Josie is young and ambitious. She just needs a foot in the door.
When Josie arrives, she swiftly makes herself indispensable at work and at home. And when childcare falls through before a long-awaited university reunion in Provence, it begins to look as if Josie may be staying longer than Amy had bargained for.
In the heat of Provence, Josie’s presence starts to unsettle Amy, especially around her husband. As cracks begin to appear in Amy’s perfect life, she cannot shake the feeling that the family friend may not be a friend at all…
This was a simple, easy read and a book I would recommend for when you want to turn your mind off. It did not take me long to finish this novel and was the perfect read for while I was on holiday.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Jonathan Ball Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
