Publisher's Summary

Rebecca Worden is the wild child in her wealthy family. The once-popular diva has burned so many bridges that no one will talk to her except Jayne, whose late mother was a housekeeper in Rebecca’s Beverly Hills neighborhood. Rebecca’s mother considers Jayne a calming influence on her out-of-control child and Jayne becomes part surrogate daughter, part servant to the Wordens.

A decade later, when Rebecca returns home along with her brother, David, it is an uneasy reunion. Jayne, having loved David from afar all these years, is nervous about his return. Loyalties are tested and friendships broken when true feelings are exposed, and Jayne must decide if she can risk giving her heart to a man connected to the very family that has used her for years.

    Story
    "A light listen but sorry it just didn't wow me"

    It's a good enough story but with a lot of dislikeable rich and spoilt characters who eventually reap what they sow. It wasn't 'heavy' on the romance side but more of plottings and angles in relationships. When it started I wasn't sure who the book was focusing on.

    Worth a credit? No, I'd put it in your Wish List and wait for it to be on sale.

    "Great Story"

    This was a well written story with good character development. I'd be interested to see if this book becomes part of a series.

    "Unlikable characters/ least favorite for S Mallery"
    What didn’t you like about Renée Raudman’s performance?

    Renee's character interpretations were too exaggerated.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Best of Friends?

    I would change the title & then go from there.

    "A Great Listen"

    I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next in the series - providing there is a series? Good character and plot development. I enjoy Susan Mallery's work and this one didn't disapoint.
