Faking Friends; by Jane Fallon

Amy thought she knew everything there was to know about her best friend Melissa. Then again, Amy also thought she was on the verge of the wedding of her dreams to her long-distance fiancé.
Until she pays a surprise trip home to London. Jack is out, but it’s clear another woman has been making herself at home in their flat.
There’s something about her stuff that feels oddly familiar . . . and then it hits Amy. The Other Woman is Melissa.
Amy has lost her home, her fiancé and her best friend in one disastrous weekend – but instead of falling apart, she’s determined to get her own back.
Piecing her life back together won’t be half as fun as dismantling theirs, after all.

I received a copy of this ebook from Penguin UK in return for an honest review.

Amy is an actress living in America where the tv show she is in is being filmed, travelling back to London to surprise her fiance and best friend. She arrives at the flat she is sharing with her fiance but notices its very clean and things seem different, she spots a suitcase with womens clothing in her bedroom and notices a perfume scent that she recognises but can’t place. Hiding out in a hotel nearby she surprises her fiance, Jack and together they go to her best friends birthday party where it clicks, the scent and clothing belongs to her best friend, Melissa.

Throughout the rest of the book, we follow Amy, and see her plotting her revenge against Jack and Mel, whilst also trying to get on with her life. You root for Amy as she gets some payback, until Mel clicks on that Amy is back in London and not a part of the American tv show anymore and starts firing back at Amy. Some parts of the book are told from Mel’s perspective but it is mostly from Amy. 

This book was an enjoyable read and it was a happy ending for Amy and I guess for Mel.
