Love Her Madly is an engaging and captivating, psychological thriller.
Although Cyn and Glo had polar opposite personalities, they were the best of friends. Cyn was a risk taker with a ferocious appetite for excitement, and Glo was the responsible friend; the one who tried to talk sense into Cyn, and keep her safe.
Cyn and Glo’s friendship was close and straight forward until they fell in love with the same guy, Raj. Glo was livid, when Cyn announced in front of Raj, that they should share him. Glo felt that she had no choice but to go along with it. Anger, hurt, and jealousy were the common denominators in the girl’s lives during this period. Little did they know, though, that things were about to get much worse.
Cyn and Glo’s world took a devastating turn when they accepted an invitation, to a moonlit party in Costa Rica, on a secluded Island. Glo, unfortunately, was the only person in their group who returned from that Island. Cyn was presumed dead, along with their two newly acquainted, male companions.
Flo and Raj mourned Cyn’s death for years. But when the two of them started to spot Cyn in NYC, they thought that their imaginations had gone wild. Raj missed Cyn, and Glo suffered from survivor’s guilt, but was that enough to conjure up visions of Cyn? Could she really be alive after all this time? And if that was the case, what would happen to Glo’s relationship with Raj?
The book is well-written and captivating. I did find some of the character’s behavior confusing, though, and had to re-read some sections, to make sense of it. Without wanting to give anything away, I’ll just say; that people aren’t always who they appear to be and that friendship’s safety net, isn’t always without holes. All in all, though, I loved the book and would recommend giving this highly entertaining book a read.
I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
