How important are your friendships? We read many girlfriend books where friends are an integral part of the character’s lives. They are confidants. They are available to them when needed. They do many activities together. And in this generation, lives seem to revolve around friendships.
In some friendships the relationship is comprised of mere acquaintances. Friends can be someone you do activities with. An example may be book clubs where some of the members are not necessarily confidants. Many book clubs do other activities such as see plays or travel.
Some choose friends who make them look good. Whether they are thinner or think they are smarter than the other person.
Sometimes men or a significant other might feel friendships interfere with the marriage or their relationship. How do you handle that? Do you spend less time with friends? Do you carve out more time with your husband?
There are any number of reasons we pick friends. It could be as simple as two people connecting. They have much in common. But are most friendships close? Do you feel you can reveal your most intimate secrets with your friend? Or do you keep confidential matters to yourself?
What category do your friends fall in?
Taylor Harrison goes to Seattle to find out why his grandfather’s partner tried to murder him. He feels the answer revolves around the older man’s desire to keep the much younger Melia Lucas in glitter and money. To get to the bottom of the mystery, he gets close to her. But he soon finds himself ensnared by Melia’s charms as much as his grandfather’s partner obviously had been. Will he end up a casualty as well?
When Melia’s parents died in a murder/suicide eight years ago, she never believed that her father murdered her mother and took his own life, leaving her an orphan and alone. But she doesn’t completely trust Taylor, either, although she has fallen for him in a totally unexpected way. As they work together to uncover the truth, they find the two cases are connected and danger lurks around Melia. Will they find the answers in time to save her?
Have you ever been betrayed by your closest friend? Have you discovered the person you trusted as a friend wasn’t a friend at all? Are your friendships close? Do you feel you can reveal your most intimate secrets with your friend? Do you feel as if your friend is using you? Do friends interfere with your marriage or significant other? What is your definition of friendship?
