A Motherhood Monday book review featuring ‘The Best of Friends’ by Lucinda Berry (and a pic of two actual bff’s)

Thank you @amazonpublishing #thomasandmercer for my gifted copy of ‘The Best of Friends‘ by Lucinda Berry! (pub 8/18)

The two lovely ladies pictured in today’s post are my daughter & her BFF. I really need to get an updated pic of me & my BFF sometime soon, but if you go to my Instagram post HERE, you will get to see a picture of us running a 5k together a few yrs ago & a couple other pics of my daughter & her BFF’s.

(And remember this silly little song written by actor Zach Galifianakis, from the movie, The Hangover, (if you’ve seen the movie, you’ll understand the simplicity of the lyrics. Click here to view on YouTube)

We’re the Three Best Friends
That Anyone Could Have
We’re the Three Best Friends
That Anyone Could Have.

We’re the Three Best Friends
That Anyone Could Have
And We’ll Never ever ever ever
Leave Each Other.

We’re the Three Best Friends
That Anyone Could Have
We’re the Three Best Friends
That Anyone Could Have…

Now for the book: ‘The Best of Friends‘ by Lucinda Berry

An unthinkable tragedy forever changes a group of teens & turns family against family in this edge-of-your-seat thriller that begs to be read in one sitting.
.
Best friends Lindsey, Kendra, & Dani endure every parent’s nightmare when a tragic accident befalls their teenage boys, leaving one dead, another in a coma, & a third too traumatized to speak. Reeling from the worst night of their lives, the 3 mothers plunge into a desperate investigation of the bizarre incident. How could something so horrible happen in their wealthy Southern California suburb?
.
They soon discover that the accident was just the beginning, & troubling discoveries lead to chilling questions: Do they really know their children? Do they even know each other? As more secrets surface, a fog of doubt & suspicion threatens to poison their families, their friendships, & the whole community. With the illusion of happiness and safety long gone, these women must now confront the hazards of heartbreak, the consequences of jealousy, & the dangers of living double lives.
.
The Best of Friends‘ relentlessly grabs you from the first pages & doesn’t let go! As a parent of 5, 2 of which are currently teenage boys, this book resonated w/ me & how as a mother, I would go to the end of the world, through hell & back, to protect my child, & if something bad happened to them, I would never give up on finding the truth behind the incident. This book is a heart-wrenching, compelling, thought-provoking domestic suspense, & I loved it! I can’t wait to check out other books by Berry soon!
