KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE BY LEAH KONEN

In the opening pages of the book, we meet Mary, a recently separated mother from Brooklyn who is trying to navigate her new life. At the playground, she strikes up a friendship with Willa, a kind and outgoing young woman who offers her some snacks for her son. Mary is grateful for the connection and begins to rely on Willa for support as she adjusts to her new circumstances.

However, just as quickly as their friendship blossoms, Willa disappears without explanation, leaving Mary devastated and feeling abandoned. With little left for her in Brooklyn, Mary decides to start fresh and moves upstate with her son Alex. But fate has other plans, as Mary soon discovers someone who looks exactly like Willa in her new town, claiming to be someone else entirely.

As Mary digs deeper into the mystery of Willa’s disappearance and the true identity of the woman she has encountered, she uncovers shocking revelations that she never could have imagined. The novel is filled with twists and turns, keeping readers on the edge of their seats as they follow Mary’s journey to uncover the truth.

While some may find the plot twists to be a bit far-fetched, author Konen does a commendable job of building suspense and keeping readers guessing until the very end. The story touches on themes of friendship, betrayal, and the quest for identity, making it a compelling read for fans of mystery and suspense.

Overall, “A recently separated Brooklyn mother loses her one new friend and chases the woman down for answers” is a thrilling and unpredictable tale that will keep readers engaged from start to finish.
