About Two best friends jump-start their lives in a summer that will change them forever…
Single mom Ellen Fox couldn’t be more content—until she overhears her son saying he can’t go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she’s living hers.
So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What’s wrong with a thirtysomething widow still sleeping in her late husband’s childhood bed?
The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they’re just fine. But somewhere between “wear three-inch heels” and “have sex with a gorgeous guy,” Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos
This is the first book I have read by Susan Mallery and it won't be the last, I loved it and hooked in from the beginning.
The story is about Ellen and Unity, two best friends both with very different past events that have happened but they both want changes in their lives and to be able to move on. Therefore they come up with the idea of a friendship list or list of things that they want to do over the summer that they have never done before like getting a tattoo or skydiving. There is also romance on the cards for both of them if they forget about the past and take a chance on something new.
I really liked all the characters and thought that you really got to know them. The story is told from various characters POV but it worked really well as you got to know the characters and understand the reason, why they have the issues they have and how they feel about events in the book. I was rooting for Ellen and Unity all the way through this and wanted to keep reading to make sure that they got the outcome they deserved.
This was the perfect story of friendships and relationships and the up and the downs. It was fairly quick paced and the story flowed really well. It was an enjoyable, sweet and fun read that I really enjoyed.
Thank you so much to Netgalley and Mills and Boon for my review copy in exchange for this honest review.
