Overview

Fans of Nora Roberts, Carla Neggars, and Karen Robards will enjoy this romantic and suspenseful story from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.

Emily was their closest friend, or so they thought -- until years later, when her secrets send them on a perilous search for the truth about who she really was and why she died ...

Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful, vibrant Emily plummeted to her death, leaving her three best friends and sorority sisters -- Natalie, Laura and Madison -- devastated. None of them has ever forgotten that night -- or the role each may have played in Emily's death, the guilt that has pursued them, and the loss they still suffer.

Now an unknown writer has rocketed onto bestseller lists with a novel that eerily mirrors their own story. Who is he? How does he know the intimate details of their lives? And why is he accusing one of them of murder? As they begin to unravel the startling truth about their friend, each will rediscover a love she lost long ago and uncover secrets that will forever change her life...

Reviews...

"Three friends reunited to uncover a haunting mystery -- I couldn't put it down." Luanne Rice.

"ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a gripping tale of romantic suspense, but it's also a story of friendships, betrayal, love, heartache, and second chances. It's the story of four young women on the brink of adulthood, full of dreams and expectations, and the tragic event that changed their lives in ways none of them could have foreseen. But even though a tragedy is the basis of the book, it is an uplifting and hopeful tale."

"Barbara Freethy is a master storyteller with a gift for characterization, and in ALL SHE EVER WANTED, she gives readers seven intriguing characters. In order to discover what happened, Natalie, Cole, Madison, Dylan, Laura, and Drew must come to terms with their pasts, and in doing so, they learn a great deal about themselves and each other. Well written and compelling, ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a fascinating blend of romance, mystery, and suspense. Don't miss it!" Susan Lantz, Romance Reviews Today

    Great book!

    Fast, easy read with enough twists to keep you guessing. Good mix of romance and suspense. Not super dark which I liked. If you like a love story with a little mystery, this is a good book for you.

    Good story line, just very slow moving.

    This is only the second book I've read of Barbara Freethy,I wasn't too impressed with this book. It wasn't as fast paced and the story dragged on too long. It did have the complexity of of twists and turns but it really dragged on longer than needed.

    Great but too long.

    I loved the book but felt that it was drawn out with the 854 pages. I wasn't very interested until the last 300 pages.

    An Exciting Thriller of a Ride

    3 Friends meet again 10 years after college, trying to find out who killed their sorority sister. This book has everything, great characters, romance and suspense! I identified with Natalie and fell in love with Cole. You won't be able to put it down until you find out who did it.

    Truth? I bought this book because the main character shared my name.

    Okay, so, truth be told: I originally bought this book because the main character (Natalie) shares my name. I did finish the book in one day, a credit to the author, no doubt, but, at the same time--the suspense part of it was kind of... for lack of a better term, lame. The romance was well written (the redeeming quality of the novel)--but the end (whodunnit) kind of left me feeling empty inside. That's all I'll say for fear that I'll ruin the ending--but, it could have been more of a shocker.

    Interesting

    Something happens that just keeps dragging me back in and not allowing me to ever put thebook down. Being a 13 year old teenager with all these differet types of video games and movies and tv shows etc; I could be wasting my time doing all of those things rather than reading a book!! Its good that this author could keep me more entertained than all the other forms of entertainmnt!!!
