Laura Cavendish can’t wait to meet the woman who’s won her son’s affection. Despite a successful career in television and a long, prosperous marriage, Laura’s world revolves around kind, talented Daniel. She pictures his new girlfriend, Cherry, becoming a close friend and confidante . . . one day, even a daughter-in-law.

But although Cherry is beautiful and amiable, Laura can’t warm to her. There’s something about the possessive way she touches Daniel, the little lies Laura detects. Cherry seems to resent Laura, driving a wedge between mother and son—until one day Daniel is injured in a terrible accident. Six months later, with Daniel still in a coma and facing death, Laura makes a fateful decision—and carries out an astonishing deceit.

A handsome doctor for a husband, with a trust fund and a family villa in St. Tropez—it was all supposed to be Cherry’s. Now, instead of living with Daniel in his impeccable home, she’s jobless and broke. And then Cherry discovers Laura’s stunning deception. But Cherry is too clever, too ambitious to let her get away with it. She’s already transformed herself into Daniel’s dream woman. Now she’ll become Laura’s worst nightmare.

Angie’s Thoughts:

I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I requested The Girlfriend. To be honest I’m a cover whore and that was what drew me in. Once I started reading was a whole different reason all together.

Laura loves her son, David. Some would say a little too much. When he brings home Cherry to meet her she feels like something is quite not right. That doesn’t stop her from inviting her to dinners. Trying to include her and not feel left out. When an accident happens, Laura takes this opportunity to spend all the time she can with David. But what progresses neither of them would guess in a million years would happen.

The Girlfriend is a great suspense thriller full of twists and turns that will leave you guessing until the very end. Let’s talk about that ending?? Not! I never seen that coming!

The Verdict:
