Friends and Liars Kaela Coble

Paperback Published by Corvus

Pages 304

Amazon £12.99

There is one envelope for each of my dear friends who once pledged always to be honest with each other. Each envelope contains evidence of your betrayal of that pact.

It has been ten years since Ruby left her hometown behind. Since then she’s built a life away from her recovering alcoholic mother and her first love, Murphy. But when Danny, one of her estranged friends from childhood, commits suicide, guilt draws Ruby back into the tumultuous world she escaped all those years ago.She’s dreading the funeral – and with good reason. Danny has left a series of envelopes addressed to his former friends. Inside each envelope is a secret about every person in the group. Ruby’s secret is so explosive, she will fight tooth-and-nail to keep it hidden from those she once loved so deeply, even if that means risking everything…


Pretty amazing how this story starts and all fits together. The ending is extraordinary, it gave me full appreciation for the way the author planned out all the drama.
Danny is dead and looking down on the crew, his friends, and they still are pissing him off, playing their part in mourning.
From the crew of friends Ruby is invited to go to the private service Danny requested. Ally and Ruby haven’t spoken to each other in ten years. The almighty Ruby is the villain of every story, she thinks she knows everything about everyone. But she didn’t even as so mush as so pick up the phone in ten goddamn years to talk to any of her crew.
Danny leaves an envelope for each of his friends that contain evidence of betrayal. They all have a choice they can either share their letter with each other or keep it to themselves. If they read their letters out loud secrets would be uncovered about every person in the group. Will the crew want to risk their secrets being exposed?
If you think you know your friends think again. 
I  really enjoyed reading this work of fiction. I have read a book similar fantastic book with reading out letters that was The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty where friends write an anonymous letter sharing their secrets. I recommend reading both books Friends and Liars by Kaela Coble and The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty.
