Publisher: Harper Collins
Two best friends. One missed chance. And a night that changes everything.
Eve, Justin, Susie and Ed have been friends since they were eighteen. Now in their 30s, the four are still as close as ever, Thursday pub quiz night is still sacred, and Eve is still secretly in love with Ed.
Maybe Eve should have moved on by now, but she can’t stop thinking about what could have been. And she knows Ed sometimes thinks about it too.
Then one night, in an instant, all their lives change forever. And, as Eve learns she didn’t know her friends as well as she thought, she also discovers she isn’t the only person keeping secrets…
There has not been a Mhairi McFarlane book that I have read that I did not like. Last Night is no exception.
On the surface you could read it as a love story which in essence it is but I think it is a love story to friends rather than lovers. It focuses on Eve and her best friend Susie and how certain actions can often do damage that might be unfixable. It is about how when things go wrong those bonds of friendship can often be harder to forgive than the ones in a romantic relationship.
I loved the character of Eve. She was unashamedly herself. Kooky, offbeat, and had a mouth that didn’t always work in conjunction with her brain. She was a fun character to read.
Last Night is not a book that will change your life but it will make your day brighter.
Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane is available now.
