The Greatest of Enemies by B. R. Maycock **Book Review** @rararesources @brmaycock

Happy hump day all!

My youngest started his senior year of high school online on Monday. This time it’s a little more structured than it was when they were doing distance-learning in the spring, so I’m struggling to adapt to a actual schedule again. Keeping my fingers crossed that they can have a somewhat normal second semester and finish off high school on a positive! 🤞

The Greatest Of Enemies

Get ready for fireworks as two women with very different personalities become housemates!
Bex has settled in well into the small town of Abbeyglen. Yes, she misses her housemate Holly, but she has plenty to do what with the setup of the new Caulfield’s café, her blogging and of course her work in Blackwater Financial Services.
Louise is shocked when she arrives in the town of Abbeyglen to find it has changed, everything looks too new and shiny, and who is this person in Holly’s apartment?!
With Bex’s bff heading for domestic bliss, some unwelcome changes in work, and now the arrival of eternally negative Louise, can Bex remain her usual chirpy self or will handbags at dawn, daytime and night-time too bring out a side to her she never knew existed?
For fans of Sophie Kinsella, Christie Barlow and Rosie Green.

(This is book 2 of a series but can be read on it’s own if you are so inclined!)

My Thoughts

What a little gem! This was such a fun book, an engaging enemies to friends story. So Louise and Bex are both friends of Holly from the previous book in the series. *you do not have to have read that book to enjoy this one!* In the previous book Holly won the lottery and now she is out adventuring The world. Bex is now living in her house, but Louise did not know this when she returneds home in shame. Louise was planning on living with her Bestie Holly and now she has to live with little miss sunshine… Bex. Two more different women there couldnt possibly be. So living together is challenging to say the least. This was fun and humorous and nostalgic. If you’ve ever had a roommate you will definitely appreciate this little book. Even if you get along with your roommate there still are those moments. There is a dash of romance but this really is more about these two women and them trying to figure out how to coexist. Bex was great she was somebody I could definitely see myself being friends with, Louise on the other hand I had a harder time connecting with. But I do have to say by the end I liked both these ladies and wanted nothing but the best for them. Looking forward to what B. R. Maycock has in store for us next in this charming series.
