Read of the Month – The Girlfriend
If you haven’t already read The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances then I highly recommend it. This book has kept me awake at night, I just couldn’t put it down!
The Girlfriend is centred around Daniel, his mother Laura and his girlfriend Cherry and their relationships with each other.
Laura runs a successful business and is very protective over her relationship with her son Daniel. Over the years her husband has been having an affair and Daniel has become her companion.
After coming back from university, Daniel decides that it’s time he moves out of home to his own place and meets Cherry who works in the estate agents he buys his apartment from.
Cherry – the girlfriend. From a poorer family in Croydon, Cherry dreams of living the wealthy lifestyle and strives to achieve bigger things. She wants the life that Laura has and will stop at nothing to get it.
Both women undermine each other for Daniel’s affections, and it seems that neither will stop at nothing to win the prize – Daniel.
The twists and turns of each chapter keep the story high paced and very easy to read.
Did I expect it to end how it did? I don’t think I did.
Our next read is from Richard & Judy’s Book club list – Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.
