FriendTrip by Sara Ney & M. E. Carter
FriendTrip is a hilarious novel by two authors who are completely new to me and let me tell you, I have every intention of devouring everything they’ve ever written (yes, even their Suck-it Lists!). The book is written in dual POV and the writing is absolutely seamless; there was nothing to suggest it was written by two different authors.
Becky and Janine have been friends since their freshman year where they got up to all sorts of shenanigans and fifteen years later, they really haven’t stopped.
Becky is concerned about her marriage being in a sexual rut and enlists Janine’s help in spicing things up with her gorgeous husband Jeremiah. Seriously, the things he put up with would have broken a lesser man! Meanwhile, Janine has turned to internet dating to find, if not The One, then at least the One For Now. Her dates had me in fits of laughter and the culmination of those warmed me to the depth of my icy-cold heart.
I’m not sure what genre this book falls under, but for me it was a beautiful (and insanely funny) celebration of friendship. I – and I daresay most of us – can easily relate to both Becky and Janine on some level and to the dynamics of their friendship, too. This book is nothing short of brilliant; I laughed, I swooned, I laughed some more. Just pure awesomeness.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a laugh out loud book and also to anyone who has a bestie they adore. Totally looking forward to reading Wedded Bliss next!
