Welcome to the blog tour for The New Friend by Alex Kane. Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the copies of these books and the opportunity to be on the tour. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.
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.
The New Friend by Alex Kane is a really entertaining story. I love this author’s work, so I was very excited to read The New Friend.
Set in Glasgow, I felt like I was there. Alex Kane writes to bring the readers into the story. I love this kind of writing. When I read, I want to feel part of the story and I did here.
There are quite a few characters. I love the secrets and the idea that the more we learn, the more intriguing the story gets. The characters are well written, and I was able to distinguish between them with no issue.
The New Friend was a thrilling crime novel that I can highly recommend. Don’t miss the opportunity to read this one!
