Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane Book Review

Cover of Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane. White background, top half has an illustration of a woman sitting on a pink couch in a sitting room. The bottom half says Last Night in purple text and Mhairi McFarlane in pink text

Eve, Susie, Ed and Justin have been friends for roughly half their lives, ever since meeting in school as teenagers. Eve has been in love with Ed for years, the one that never was after a kiss between them at 18 failed to develop into anything further. Their friendships are one of close bonds, fierce loyalty and in jokes galore, much to the chagrin to outsiders, like Ed's long term girlfriend Hester. However a shocking event one night changes all this and secrets start to spill. Eve discovers that she might not know her friends as well as she thought she did.

I inhaled this book, I find Mhairi's book are fantastic for getting me out of a reading slump. This is slightly different to the other ones I've read. While there is a romantic storyline in this book, it's not the main focus, so it falls outside a traditional romantic comedy in that sense. I don't want to give too much of the plot away but it's really more about friendship, the relationships you have with other people and how much you really know about others in your life. There's some serious storyline elements but Mhairi handles them in such a way that has great humour. And with great descriptions, I'd love to see this one as a film as I think it could be very funny and poignant at same time

I received this e-book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I’m not required to post a review on here and all thoughts are my own
