‘Promise me? If you hear any secrets, never tell me. That would make you a most treasured friend. More than a friend really. You’re almost like a sister to me…’
Your best friend….
From the moment they met as children, Sasha knew that beautiful, wealthy, and confident Caitlin would always be her absolute best friend. Sasha would do anything to make Caitlin happy.
Even keep her darkest secrets…
The years have passed, but their friendship remains. And when Caitlin announces she’s getting married there is only one choice for the role of bridesmaid.
Sasha will make sure Caitlin’s wedding is as beautiful and perfect as she is. Won’t she?
Your worst nightmare?
But Sasha is growing tired of always being in Caitlin’s shadow – always the bridesmaid, never the bride. And as the big day approaches, cracks begin to appear between the two woman.
Secrets and lies swirl between the two friends like confetti. Both of them are hiding dark secrets, both of them are lying.
Could the secrets that once bound these two friends, rip them apart for good?
I have enjoyed Nina Manning‘s work in the past, so I was excited to check out The Bridesmaid. I enjoyed the dual timeline. I think this really gave insight to the Sasha and Caitlin’s relationship.
This was an intriguing read. It was not super fast-paced, but the book is full of secrets, which were surprising when revealed and not easily guessed.
Sasha and Caitlin are very interesting. Their friendship is odd for many reasons, but it is clear Sasha I’d devoted.
The Bridesmaid is a great, suspenseful drama. It gave me a lot to think about and kept my attention. I’d recommend giving it a shot.
