Liam Walsh is just a roommate. Maybe if Charlie St. James repeats it enough, she’ll stop lusting after him. Not that it matters how she feels anyway, because Liam will always see her as one of the boys. Hell, he’s the one who gave her the nickname Charlie as a joke. Well, the joke’s on her. Now that she is confined to less than 1,000 square feet with him, she can’t stop thinking about how it would feel to get just a little bit closer.

 

Charlie St. James is off limits. She’s been Liam Walsh’s best friend since grade school. He thought it wouldn’t be a big deal to let her crash with him when she needed a place to stay, but he was dead wrong. Knowing only a thin wall separates them when they sleep, that she’s naked in the shower while he lays in bed fantasizing about her, is unbearable. When their cozy two bedroom goes from friend zone to war zone, they’ll either burn up the sheets or go down in flames.

Review: The Friend by Teresa Driscoll
The Friend: An emotional psychological thriller with a twist - Teresa O'Driscoll

Published by: Thomas & Mercer  (22nd March 2018)

 

ISBN: 978-1542046664

 

Rating: 5*

 

Source: Netgalley 

 

Synopsis: 

On a train with her husband, miles from home and their four-year-old son, Ben, Sophie receives a chilling phone call. Two boys are in hospital after a tragic accident. One of them is Ben.

She thought she could trust Emma, her new friend, to look after her little boy. After all, Emma’s a kindred spirit—someone Sophie was sure she could bare her soul to, despite the village rumours. But Sophie can’t shake the feeling that she’s made an unforgivable mistake and now her whole family is in danger.

Because how well does she know Emma, really? Should she have trusted her at all?

Time is running out. Powerless to help her child, still hours from home, Sophie is about to discover the truth. And her life will never be the same.

 

Review:

Wow! Teresa Driscoll must have magic fingers to weave such an enticing, gripping tale. It is obvious that the story has been clearly and precisely thought out, and the book is intelligently written, with more twists and turns than your average rollercoaster. I read it in one sitting, furiously devouring each page, unable to rest until I'd reached the end and discovered the fate of the boys in the hospital. 

 

The story alternates between the present day Sophie, on the train, rushing towards the hospital, and the Sophie from the past, recounting the day she met Emma and how their friendship grew. I didn't find this, or the switch between narratives, distracting, I notice other reviewers have mentioned there being a lot of back story, but I feel that is the main part of this chilling tale, after all it's about The Friend.

 

I think immediately after reading this, everyone is likely to be rather less trusting of people they meet and seem to have an affinity with! I do wonder where the author got the idea...

I can't wait to see what Teresa Driscoll comes up with next! 

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. This is my unbiased review.

Clod Makes a Friend by David J. Pedersen
Clod Makes a Friend - David J. Pedersen

Clod is poor, he's different from others in many ways, but mostly he is lonely. In a world where everyone but Clod has some form of magic, he is constantly bullied and has no friends. The biggest bully being his teacher Learned Yugen.



Clod has no one to play with, and the only thing he has to play with is bits of clay his mother brings him occasionally. One day Clod molds his clay into the shape of a little girl and brings her to life, she calls herself Ada. As time goes on Clod keeps reinventing Ada and reawakening her. Ada gets Clod into all kinds of trouble, but Clod doesn't care he finally has a friend. 



The book follows Clod's life up to age 57. Each chapter showing a Clod at a different age, it also tells the tells the trouble Ada gets him into. Like stealing a cake in the town of Durgoon because Ada wants to taste cake. 



As the years go on, not only does Clod keep bringing Ada to life but he also revives others who have died. He brings a poor little dog who has been trampled by a horse so his owner can say goodbye. He can bring back people as well but only for short periods of time. He is deemed as evil for his gift. 



This book actually has a few different morals for readers but does it in a subtle way. I enjoyed this book myself and know that children I would say from age 8 to probably 13 would enjoy it as well.

 

I was given this book by the Author as part of a book tour for iRead Book Tours. My review is my own thoughts.

Friendship...[3/13/18]
Today I am thankful for friendship and the love of a true friend.
 
There is so much I could say, but I don't want to get too personal on this one. I could get pretty mushy. We don't talk that often, and that is okay. I have my reasons. You have yours. We understand that. We've come a long way and have had our ups and downs, we are 100% truly best friends. I am thankful and I love you.
 
A true friend can go years without talking and start back up as if no time has passed.

Her Best Friend - Sarah Wray Her Best Friend - Sarah Wray

Teenagers, Sylvie and Victoria are best friends until tragedy strikes and Victoria is murdered. No one is ever charged with the crime. Twenty years later Sylvie is back in her hometown to sort out her mother’s affairs after her death - it isn’t a happy homecoming. A very slow burner with characters it’s hard to find a connection with. Sylvie is wishy washy now as she was twenty years ago when she was 15, always a follower, never the leader. There are descriptions of mundane activities, one or two surprises, enough to keep on reading. A great sounding book which didn’t quite hit the spot for me this time.
