Book Review – The Friday Edition by Betta Ferrendelli

First off, let me note that one thing stood out for me in The Friday Edition. It was a good thing too. The fact that we begin with a woman who has lost everything and is just surviving every day as it comes. At the end of The Friday Edition, she gets a handle on things and makes an effort to move on, and live life! This is a commonality that would probably be felt by a lot of us readers.

We start off with a death. Robin is on the ground, dead after falling from her apartment. While everyone is sure, and quick, to call it a suicide, her sister, Samantha, is not. Sam does not believe Robin could take her own life. Everything is skewed, the suicide note is unlike one Robin would have written, the whole circumstance is completely unbelievable to Sam. But who is going to believe Sam, while she hardly ever remains sober?

Sam, left alone after a divorce and losing custody of her child, fired from her job as a journalist at a daily and now working a weekly – Sam is buried under a lot of pressure and is hardly getting by. Her sister’s death gets her nosing around and the whole plot thickens.

I am not going to get into that because, where is the suspense left if I did! Though I must add, as you near the end of The Friday Edition, you can figure it out yourself. But, the plot was good, the details leading up to it, the whole thing was rivetingly good.

Perhaps, I was unable to empathise with a few characters, but that did not keep me from enjoying The Friday Edition. Good writing, quick pace, smart plot, there are a lot of things keeping the reader interested in flipping the pages.

Oh, did I mention this is book one of a series??? I am definitely adding them to my list this year.

Definitely go read.

Thanks to The Write Reads and Betta Ferrendelli for the ARC.

  1. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every
    day. It will always be helpful to read content
    from other authors and use a little something from their
    web sites.
