I am so excited to be on this blog tour, mainly because Faith Hogan is such a lovely person and of course she has written a great book. Us bloggers mainly get manuscripts sent to our Kindle but occasionally they send us the book but Faith improved on that by not only sending a bookmark but also a gorgeous bracelet with these words:
Tie this bracelet to your wrist,
Close your eyes and make a wish.
When the cord starts to fray,
Your wish is on its way.
That is so nice and it’s little things like this that make reading all these books worth while. Thank you Faith x
THE GIRL I USED TO KNOW
Two women. Two very different lives. One unexpected friendship.
Amanda King and Tess Cuffe are strangers who share the same Georgian house, but their lives couldn’t be more different.Amanda seems to have the perfect life. But the reality is a soulless home, an unfaithful husband and a very lonely heart.While Tess has spent a lifetime hiding and shutting her heart to love.But if they can open up to one another, these two women may just learn that sometimes letting go is the first step to moving forward and new friendships can come from the most unlikely situations.
Faith Hogan is an Irish award-winning and bestselling author of four novels. Her books have featured as Book Club Favorites, Net Galley Hot Reads and Summer Must Reads. She writes grown up women’s fiction which is unashamedly uplifting, feel good and inspiring.
Faith’s latest book, What Happened To Us? is published in October 2018.
She writes crime fiction as Geraldine Hogan – Silent Now is available to pre-order now!
Faith was born in Ireland. She gained an Honours Degree in English Literature and Psychology from Dublin City University and a Postgraduate Degree from University College, Galway.
She is currently working on her next novel. She lives in the west of Ireland with her husband, four children and a very busy Labrador named Penny. She’s a writer, reader, enthusiastic dog walker and reluctant jogger – except of course when it is raining!
WHAT DID I THINK:
Where to start as this story had a bit of everything and had me looking forward to picking it up again to read it. This is a longer book with over 400 pages but it needs that as everything is picked apart it’s like you know as a reader what the characters are thinking. I thought Tess and Amanda were great and it goes to show we all need a friend at some points in our life, they end up best friends and their lives change dramatically with it ending up bringing them closer. Strong women are what they become but it does not come easily, just like real life. I thought the way Amanda’s house becomes a home was such a nice way to describe it and you could imagine her sitting in there painting and happy. Brilliant happy story that was a pleasure to read and review, thank you Faith and Aria books.
