Usually when I stay in with an author I don’t know in advance which book they are bringing along. Today, however, I was expecting Carys Jones to bring Best Friends and am delighted (and slightly scared) to be part of the launch celebrations for this novel.
Four friends, a terrible secret, and one week to stay alive…
Grace doesn’t have a family. That was taken away one dreadful day when she was just six, and her twin brother Peter was killed. Instead she has her best friends and flatmates – Jasper, Franklin and Aaron – and nothing can tear them apart.
Living in London, and trying desperately to make a living, the four friends are rapidly running out of money and hope. So, when they find a discarded suitcase in a skip, they can’t believe their eyes when its contents seem to answer all their prayers.
But then there is a knock on their door, and a very disgruntled thug with revenge on his mind gives them one week to return his belongings, or they will pay with their lives. Soon the fractures in their friendships begin to show, and when one of them ends up fighting for his life, the stakes are raised even higher.
Will any of them get to the end of the week alive, or will the best of friends become the deadliest of enemies…
Staying in with Carys Jones
Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Carys. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.
Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening?
I’ve bought along my latest book, Best Friends.
What can we expect from an evening in with Best Friends?
A whole lot of fun and thrills! As the title suggests the friendship amongst the four main characters is at the heart of the story and I hope that as people read it the group endear themselves to them as much as they did to me when I was writing it. I ended up really envying their tight knit relationship in their little London flat!
(I’m not sure I’d like some of the outcomes of their relationships though!)
What else have you brought along and why?
I’ve bought along a pair of ballet shoes to represent Grace. A CD of classic Broadway hits as Franklin is an aspiring stage actor. Also an acoustic guitar which is Aaron’s preferred instrument and finally a Kindle because Jasper never leaves home without his.
Finally I’ve bought several cups of tea as the group in Best Friends are often turning on the kettle to help them during moments of strife!
(Oh! You can’t beat a good cup of tea!)
Thanks so much for staying in with me Carys. I’ve really enjoyed it.
Here’s to a great evening! Thanks so much for having me!
