I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, I absolutely love all of Jane Fallon’s books, she’s probably my favourite author and her stories never disappoint! Faking Friends is no exception to this. To be honest if somebody gave me this book without telling me who it was by I could guess Jane Fallon after just the first chapter. Her writing style is so naturally faultless I always feel like I’m right there in the world of the protagonist, that’s what I love so much!
Faking Friends, similar to most of Fallon’s novels, was a mix of intrigue, funny, sadness and heartbreak. It was a perfect easy read, as I started it the same week I started a new job so it was a good one to pick up for a few minutes before having to stop, not that I ever wanted to put it back down! I could have devoured in one go.
The way she shapes her characters makes the book addictive from start to finish. I completely fell in love with Amy, I was rooting for her in every aspect – getting over her crappy boyfriend Jack, walking away/getting revenge on Mel and landing another acting job so she could earn money again and be independent. So naturally I was over the moon with the ending and how everything turned out for her!
I think an important message from this book is that people never change, if you keep letting the crappy people back in your life you’re only going to be disappointed over and over again.
Huge thank you to Jenny Platt at Penguin Random House for inviting me to take part on this blog tour and for the advanced copy of the book.
