      Having loved I Am Watching You, I was really looking forward to The Friend I m pleased to say that I absolutely LOVED it.The Friend had me gripped and intrigued throughout, as I wasn t sure where the story was going, so eagerly needed to read to find out This thought provoking psychological thriller was full of mystery, intrigue, suspense and an impressively manipulative character Ooh, I do love a good sociopath to keep me on my toes I really don t want to go into detail about the plot, because [...]

      The story really drew me in from the first few chapters, trying to imagine myself in Sophie s position Knowing your young son is hurt and having to cope with not being there with him I enjoyed the way this book was laid out, it goes back and forth between the present to flashback chapters to give the backdrop of how they ended up where they are A real page turner and another book from Teresa Driscoll that I really enjoyed and found hard to put down I hope to read of Teresa s work in this genre [...]

      I couldn t get interested in this book at all I felt it drawn out and I didn t like the characters, which didn t help I m afraid I didn t finish it.

    14. Cathy on said:

      Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.While I tried so hard to enjoy this book, I found the constant flicking back and forth quite confusing athough I have never had issues with this style of book in the past I enjoyed the story as a whole but I did find that it dragged in parts and took a longer way round to get to the conclusion The main protagonist was constantly making me cringe with her naivety and whilst I hadn t g [...]

      Another fantastic read from Theresa Driscoll I will definitely be looking out for by her Thanks Netgalley for this great ARC

    16. Pattyh on said:

      Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read The Friend by Teresa Driscoll I really like I am Watching you, her last novel, and I found this was written very similarly.The plot takes place when Sophie gets bad news while she rides a train her new friend is at the center of this incident The story goes back and forth with Sophie and her friend Emma and what leads them to this tragedy.Good book, but the lead character was naive and this drives me crazy.Fast read.
