Delighted today to share my thoughts on The New Friend by Alex Kane.
About The Book
Arabella MacQueen had a tough start to life. Growing up with an alcoholic mum, taken into care at the age of 8, getting into trouble as a teen, now she’s in her late-twenties and has turned her life around until the night of madness that sees her imprisoned for 10 months.
Little does she know that prison would be the turning point of her life.
Roxanne Barr quickly takes her under her wing, and the two women forge a friendship that lasts beyond the prison walls. Now Arabella is running her own hair salon and excited to see how her life of freedom looks, building a future with boyfriend Eddie and a friendship with Roxanne and her boyfriend, Jake. But Arabella doesn’t know the truth about Roxanne: her reputation as the head of Glasgow gangland, not afraid to turn to violence to keep her status. She doesn’t know that her new best friend is keeping secrets from her – and that she has plans for Arabella that might lead her into some very dangerous places.
In this dirty game, Arabella is going to have to learn you can’t always trust those closest to you.
Arabella meets Roxanne when they share a cell for her 10 month stint in prison, Roxanne is doing a 10 stretch.
Becoming firm friends and besties for life on the outside, is this a recipe for disaster?
I absolutely love the strong characters and this is another fantastic gripping nail biting read from Alex.
Alex just gets better and better with every book she writes.
Full of tension throughout this will have you racing through the pages.
I really enjoyed this fast paced action packed read highly recommended
