Growing up, Jane and Marnie shared everything. They knew the other's deepest secrets. They wouldn't have had it any other way. But when Marnie falls in love, things begin to change. Because Jane has a secret: she loathes Marnie's wealthy, priggish husband. So when Marnie asks if she likes him, Jane tells her first lie. After all, even best friends keep some things to themselves. If she had been honest, then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive today. For, of course, it's not the last lie. In fact, it's only the beginning.

4 1/2 - 5 stars. I believe this is Kay's debut novel but it is one of the best first novels I've read so far. This nifty little thriller about the lives of two women, Jane and Marnie, grabbed me from the start and kept me turning the pages, engrossed in the lives and the lies between the two women. Quite a surprising roller coaster of a read with quite a few surprises along the way. I can't wait to see what she's going to write next. A really good thrille

Obsessive BFF makes for an unsympathetic narrator in a story that plods to an unsatisfying and anti-climactic ending.

This is one of those books where I debated whether I wanted to know what was going to happen in the last quarter of the book. Should I just put it down because I knew it was going to get worse? I finished it, and although this mystery involving the narrator and seven lies she told about the murder of a friend’s husband was unsettling, its also one of the best mysteries I’ve read. Sociopaths are scary people. They can make the worst things seem so natural. The narrator’s voice is so seemingly kind, you get pulled right into the story.
