Nina Manning – The Bridesmaid

I have read other Nina Manning books and have thoroughly enjoyed every one so when I was invited to ‘The Bridesmaid’ tour I wasn’t going to say no. This is an intriguing story all about secrets and two best friends that have been together since childhood.

Nina Manning

From the moment they met as children, Sasha knew that beautiful, wealthy, and confident Caitlin would always be her absolute best friend.  Sasha would do anything to make Caitlin happy. Even keep her darkest secrets…

As they grow older the girls stay friends and when she says she is getting married it is definitely going to be Sasha for her bridesmaid. What Caitlin hasn’t realised is that Sasha is getting sick of being second best and as the wedding comes closer the cracks appear. We see the lies and secrets these two women are keeping start rising to the surface. Could this be what tears them apart?

Told in varying timelines Sasha is the main narrator. We are taken from the present back to their childhood then back to the present then back to a few months previously and back again to the present. We are witness to exactly what has kept these two friends together throughout. We see Sasha actually helping Caitlin’s wedding to their childhood friend Chuck. We also see just how many secrets are being kept and believe me there are plenty.
Not an overly fast-paced read but it gives time to process the friendship of these girls and as the secrets rose to the surface they had me surprised as they weren’t ones I could have guessed.

A story that I really got invested in. Two friends with a wedding looming at a ton of lies and secrets, what more can you want? I read this is a day…I just needed to know what was going to happen.

Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources, Boldwood Books and NetGalley for the copy of the book.
