Reasons for Avoiding Friends by Megan Leavell






 

Release Date: September 14, 2021 


About The Book:

Growing up, Gwen and Iris were the best of friends, even if they couldn’t have been more different. Now Gwen is living her hometown dream, or so she reminds herself while juggling endless parenting drama, an unemployed husband, and a neighborhood pyramid scheme. Never mind that at age thirty-nine, her social circle still resembles middle school. Her life is everything she ever wanted it to be, but nothing like she had planned.

Iris was never destined for the ordinary. When she moved to Manhattan, she shed her old life for a better one—but not without a cost. From a distance, Iris’s life couldn’t be more charmed, but no one knows about the cracks in the image she’s worked so hard to cultivate. No one knows the real Iris at all. Except for Gwen. But Iris and Gwen haven’t spoken for years. Until…

When Iris’s past catches up with her, she turns to the one person she could always count on—but she isn’t the only one keeping secrets, and as Gwen scrambles to preserve an illusion of domestic bliss, she finds herself wondering when they went from telling each other everything to sharing nothing. Now, a little wiser, and most certainly a little older, Gwen and Iris discover that the truest of friends accept you just as you are, and that loving yourself is sometimes the best way to find happiness.


My Thoughts

Who says you can't go home? That is exactly what fancy pants 👖 Iris tried to do. After escaping her small town to live it up large in Manhattan...🛍👠👜can she really go back? Well when her husband gives her reason #551 to leave him....maybe she will...the problem is her only friend there is Gwen...and it's been about 15 years since they have seen each other...so there is that...😬

 Gwen is the picture of domestic bliss...well according to her Christmas cards...in reality she is a hot mess express...like we all are...🤷‍♀️…she needs her hair done, wants a better wardrobe and runs herself ragged with her daily errands...welcome to 40! 🥳

I enjoyed watching this play out. These two former BFF's 👯‍♀️seemed so different, but were they really? They were so relatable...the social media persona that is now the norm...the suburban mother that has to "fit in" with the other moms.

A fun escape...quick, easy read...about life, love and friendship. ❤️
