Best Friends Forever - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
After twelve years of marriage, Celine and Keith’s relationship isn’t what it used to be.  With their lack of communication, caring for their daughter and work, their marriage is taking a hit.  But it’s when Celine gets diagnosed with cancer that the real challenge begins.  With the issues between her and Keith, she starts to think that she’ll have to tackle this obstacle alone.  But when she turns to her lifelong friend, Lauren, for support during this time, and confides in her about her crumbling marriage, she is comforted with knowing that she does have someone to turn to.  Lauren serves as a reminder that as long as we have faith we can get through just about anything and proves to be the best type of friend … loyal, trustworthy and kind. 

A true friend is something to treasure.  To know that you have someone who will always be there for you, and have your back in the good times and bad, is worth its weight in gold! 

I love how the story flows.  The author does a wonderful job tying in all of the elements.  This is a short read, but it’s not lacking in story!  Realistic, relatable and with a cast of characters that feel so real, this is one of those books that you pick up and won’t put down until you find out how the story ends.
