Just Between Friends - Rosie Nixon || Blog Tour


Aisha Moore is eight months pregnant. She’s thrilled, and a little scared. Not least because her husband Jason hasn’t quite wrapped his head around the fact.

Lucy is having her first child too. She has finally got her wish – although the circumstances aren’t quite what she had hoped. Oscar will be a great dad though, won’t he?

When the two women join the same baby group, they quickly become friends and before long they’re confiding in each other. 

Only there’s one thing Lucy hasn’t told Aisha. And while a baby may turn your life upside-down, a secret this big will change everything.

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour. 
Aisha is a expecting her first baby, at 8 months pregnant she is not only excited but also a little bit nervous especially as it is taking her husband Jason a little longer to get his around this. Lucy is also expecting her first child and whilst the circumstances are not what she wanted, it doesn't mean she is any less excited and besides Oscar will be a great dad regardless. The only thing is the women still feel a little daunted so join a local baby group.

The pair soon become friends as the group brings them together, and find themselves confiding in each other about their individual circumstances, but their is one big secret between the pair and it could alter everything. As the pair give birth, the relationship changes more and things need clearing between them.

I really enjoyed this read, it was the perfect coffee shop read, i found although i had picked up pretty early on what was going and where it was going to go i really enjoyed reading it and watching how it would pan out between the friends. 

Aisha and Lucy are both well rounded characters with their own complex stories and personalities which makes them stand off the page to the reader. The relationship between the pair is really interesting and i loved discovering the dynamics as things changed. I also really loved watching the pair bond with their new babies and how everyone in the book was in their own different situation and how things flourished.

The narrative was easy and enjoyable, a one to get lost in the pages as you devour the story, its complex in places but not too heavy that you come out of it feeling worn out. Instead you just find you have had an overall enjoyable reading experience.
