Blog Tour: My Best Friend’s Secret – Emily Freud*

How do you escape a past you can’t remember?

Kate Sullivan has a beautiful home, a job she loves and a handsome fiancé: all she’d ever dreamed of since getting sober and painstakingly piecing her life back together.

But a chance encounter with her old best friend Becky threatens Kate’s newfound and fragile happiness. Kate remembers nothing of their last drunken night out, the night Becky broke off their friendship without warning or explanation.

With Becky back in her life, Kate is desperate to make amends for the past. For the closure she craves, Kate needs to know what she did that ruined everything. But what if the truth is worse than Kate could have imagined?

(Previously published as Closure)

My thoughts: I really thought this book was going in one direction, then it swerved and went in a completely different one. Which was refreshing but also horrifying – the secret Becky has been carrying all those years will destroy everything Kate believes in.

It was also interesting to see Kate’s daily battle with addiction and how close to the surface her need swam, especially at times of stress. She’s fundamentally a good person but made some mistakes and continues to struggle with them every day.
