Book Review: Friends Like These

23 March 2021|

Title: Friends Like These

Author: Sarah Alderson

Genre: Domestic Drama

Main Characters:

Lizzie – lead female

Becca – perfect online persona


We all know someone like Becca.

She has the job everyone wants, a designer wardrobe, a hot-shot lawyer boyfriend, holidays to exotic locations. And she flaunts her perfect life all over social media.

It drove her colleague Lizzie mad, but she couldn’t stop looking. They were never really friends – and yet Lizzie knew everything about her.

Or did she?

When chance, and a terrible mistake, pulls Lizzie back into Becca’s orbit years after they lost touch, she’ll realise that can’t always believe what you see online… and that finding out the truth might be the worst thing you do.

There’s no such thing as a perfect life. Only a perfect lie.


I love finding new authors that have a range of books or series of similar genre books to read. And once I read this one, I downloaded another three of Sarah’s books – and have loved them all. This one had many plot twists and just when I thought I had the characters all worked out, they shocked me once again. The world of social media can be a very scary one, and this book highlights that all online may not be what it seems…

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations to share?
