The Best Friend, by Shalini Boland

Very good psych thriller. Louisa’s husband is a mess and they’re on the financial rocks. But, she finds a new friend that promises to help them both, socially and financially. Unfortunately, slight cracks start to appear in the relationship, and soon develop into full fledged breaks.

My wife and I listened to this book on the way to a mountain vacation a couple of weeks ago, and it kept us both interested the whole way. The villain of the story is very shrewd and extremely wicked, but like the best villains, charismatic. That’s the trap that Louisa falls into. How far will she fall?
