Here is my review of “A Questionable Friendship”! 

WOW!! Bravo! What an amazing story!! What an ending!! I finished the book two days ago, but could not imagine writing a review that would give Samantha March’s story proper justice. I have been savoring the memory of the story from beginning to end, as this is a story that will be left with you. You will carry it in your heart! This I promise you! You will find yourself questioning at least one of your friendships, and wonder if you are doing as these two friends did….you will look at your marriage, your life…everything will look very different. I learned quite a few lessons while reading this story. KUDOS to Samantha March! She sends a powerful message in this story….One we all need to hear.

Let me say that the book is superbly written….it flowed perfectly from the first word to the last. Samantha March is very talented story-teller and I just purchased her other books and look forward to reading them (there are two others available right now) and to all of her future stories. I hope she has one on the horizon…sooner, rather than later.

We are introduced to two Best Friends, Brynne and Portland. They live in Maine. Both are married, Brynne has a four-year-old daughter; to whom Portland is the Godmother. Brynne owns a book store called “EJ Reads”, named after her daughter, Emmy Jo. Portland works at the bookstore just to get out of the house, as her husband Trent is successful enough that she does not have to work. They share vacations, holidays and dinner once a week after which Brynne and Portland catch up on a “Real Housewives” episode, and their husbands, Aaron and Trent play pool or just hang out. They feel they are more like family than just friends.

They met when they were put together as roommates in college, and they are now 25 years old. They trust that they are the best of friends, and believe they know everything about one another. The question is: Are they truly being honest with one another? What makes a best friend?

I loved a quote from the book, “We never learned how to be grownups with each other”!! Makes you think doesn’t it!! I bet you have one (or more) friends that you walk this fine line with…..You will certainly think of at least one. You will wonder why you prefer to walk around acting like your life is so perfect, when there may be flaws…and you may need help with something. What makes us want our friends to look at us through rose-colored glasses?

They each try to not “bother” the other with their true issues: The issues that a best friend should be available to help with or at least listen. They each feel the other has a perfect life. Yet, neither of them does. This story still has me reeling with thoughts. Would things have been better for each of them if they were more open with one another…

5 Stars.
