    A New Best Friend

    Everyone should have a best friend. That friend should be loyal, always in your corner, funny, stubborn, and honest. A best friend should admire you and always give you the advice you need to hear. Lily Cameron is all those things, funny, stubborn, very loyal to her best friend who is in Scotland, faithful to her partner and lover who is in Europe, and so she has to handle some life-changing events alone. She lives in a small community in North Carolina, whose inhabitants are quirky, endearing, and very real. Lily has to put her own business, Girls With Hammers, on hold to run her father¿s after his sudden death. She finds a new best friend in her recently widowed mother, and she finds that loyalty, stubbornness, and a sense of humor are pretty good tools to have. This novel is very funny and touching, and the writer evokes the Carolina hills and the characters of this imaginary small town with such deft strokes that the reader will almost see and hear them. Enter the sexy and mysterious stranger Arlo. Lily finds herself strangely drawn to him while she fights her loneliness. Strange occurrences lead everyone to suspect Arlo, and even Lily has cause to doubt her judgment of him. Would anyone fault her if she gave in to the attraction Lily feels for him? Her lover leaves her for an extended stay in Europe after an argument, her best friend is in Scotland for a year, her father has died, her business is in a shambles and she is about to see her father¿s construction go under, and she has to fight all these battles alone. Lily does so with humor, crankiness, with fits and starts, with remarkable resilience. Cynn Chadwick achieves a smooth, seamless style that leaves the reader wondering whether it is right to laugh out loud under such somber circumstances. This is a charming, funny, lovely book that will leave everyone wishing that Lily Cameron could be her best friend.
