They’ll always have each other…won’t they?
Lisa and Elliot have been best friends ever since the day they met as children. Popular, bright and sporty, Lisa was Elliot’s biggest supporter when the school bullies made his life a misery, and for that, he will always be grateful.
Twenty years later, life has pulled the pair apart and Lisa is struggling. Her marriage is floundering, her teenage kids are being secretive, and she’s so tired she can’t think straight. So when Elliot knocks on the door, looking much better than she remembers, she can’t help but be delighted to see her old friend again.
With Elliot back in their lives, Lisa’s family problems begin to improve – he’s like the fairy godmother she never had. As their bond deepens, she realises how much she’s missed him, and prays that this is one friendship that will last a lifetime. But sometimes, life has other ideas…
A heartwarming story perfect for fans of Keith Stewart and Jojo Moyes, that will leave you with a tear in your eye but hope in your heart.
My Review: 4/5
This book came at the right time for me. My go-to genre is Psychological Thriller/Crime, so reading Stand By Me was so refreshing.
The story…where do I begin? It is an amazing story of courage, love, and hope. After years of not seeing her childhood best friend, Elliot shows up on Lisa’s doorstep. Amazed and delighted, no one realized his true purpose of visiting after many years.
While I did find it a little predictable, and a little confusing at the beginning with the many points of view, this book was a delight to read. It can easily be read in a long weekend. The perfect place would be laying on the beach, with a refreshing drink by your side. It is so uplifting and positive, you can’t help but smile.
I enjoyed the author’s style of writing, and although this was my first book by the author, it definitely will not be my last. Pick up the book today and prepare yourself for an uplifting and glorious journey!
