REVIEW: The Confidant by J.S. Ellis was an interesting book but, not my favorite by this author. I’ve read a couple of others that I loved. This one was good, just not a home run.
This novel deals with friendship and cheating both within a friendship and a marriage. The big hangup for me is I don’t like cheating or lying and go out of my way to avoid both.
This story was like having a long discussion with your best friend and hearing all the ins and outs of another friendship that person is involved in.
The characters were believable along with the story line. It made me miss my best friend that passed away several years ago because there was nothing we wouldn’t discuss all day long. I miss that and just maybe why this book left me wanting something more.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

How far should he go to uncover the truth? If he digs too deep, could Jason lose the very person he’s trying to keep?
