The Good Friend by Jo Baldwin Review

The Good Friend by Jo Baldwin was an enjoyable read. When I originally read the synopsis, I was expecting more of a thriller packed with twists and turns, but I found it would be best described as a women's fiction book than a thriller. It is well written with jumps to the past that helps the reader understand the relationships between the characters. 

I remember thinking while reading that something would happen soon that would change the whole dynamic of the book but here I was, 75% in the book and I still didn't get that feeling. Up to that point, I was a little disappointed, but once I got over it, I enjoyed it and I was glad I stuck with the book because the last 20%  was excellent. I still don't know how I feel about the ending though. It's the kind that leaves you wanting more.

I look forward to reading more books from the author.

Thank you to NetGalley and RedDoor Publishing for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
Once upon a time they were best friends. They were all friends. So when Jenny moved to Australia to focus on her swimming career, she not only lost Kath, but her soul-mate Tom. It was for the best. Or so they said. Now, eight years later, Jenny seeks out her childhood friend and heads to rural France where Kath has settled. At first the women fall back into a close relationship, but before long strange and malicious behaviour leads Jenny to realise the truth: that Kath has played a clever game all along to manipulate and control those around her. And Jenny is her biggest victim. (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading.
