Title: Best Friends Forever
Author: Margot Hunt
Pages: 336
Publishing: January 23rd 2018 by MIRA


How well do you really know your best friend?

Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.

Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all.


What an amazing debut from Margot Hunt! Best Friends Forever immediately opens with a bang and I was completely captivated within minutes. The novel is extremely well written and constantly leaves the reader guessing who should be trusted. I absolutely loved the twists and thrills in this novel and totally did not guess the ending, even though there were times I thought I would be able to. 

I loved the characters in this novel. Hunt did a fantastic job creating Alice and Kat, and I could picture them perfectly in my mind. Alice appeared to be meek and mild while Kat was the rich and glamorous friend who always got what she wanted. I thoroughly enjoyed diving into their relationship and it was truly interesting to see how they reacted to one another. I also loved the back and forth between present day and the past. The transitions were always very smooth and left me on the edge of my seat. 

Best Friends Forever is an incredibly impressive debut novel from Hunt and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. This novel was full of thrills and surprises, and I would highly recommend it to readers who enjoy psychological thrillers. I was pleasantly surprised with how much a enjoyed this novel and I am very thankful to NetGalley and Mira for sending it in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 4/5
