With Friends Like These…by Tina Guyden

Thank you to Chick Lit Plus blog tours for sending me a copy of Absinthe.  I was given this copy in exchange for an honest review. I had the privilege of reading Holly Kerr’s “Absinthe Doesn’t Make the Heart Grow Fonder.”


 We meet Josie, Lana, Poppy and Meredith as they gather for Josie’s fortieth birthday celebration. The first the time the foursome that formed in college has had a chance to be together minus significant others and offspring in quite a while.  Josie is the motherly one that does her level best to keep the friends connected. Poppy is the polished wealthy friend, and she and Josie practically grew up together. Lana is outspoken to the point of discomfort for some.  Meredith is looking for that one question or life change that will settle her.  All evening each of the women reveals life-changing challenges they are each facing. These challenges or circumstances that highlight that no one’s life is safe from insecurities, disappointments, and pain.  What can they learn from each other? The question is how well do you really know your oldest and dearest friends?

My Thoughts: 

I thought I was prepared for the ending. I so wasn’t, so much so that I have to read it again. That is the mark of an engaging read which includes great characters, plot, and setting. I loved “Absinthe” and will be reading it again.
