Best friends never let you down.
That's not the case with Josie's BFF's. Their friendship spans over twenty years and it hasn't always gone well; Poppy vs. Lana, Lana vs. Meredith, and Josie always trying to keep the peace. But with trouble looming in her marriage, Josie needs her friends around. Her 40th birthday is the perfect excuse for her to look at the cracks in the friendship, and fix them, once and for all.
A girls' night out will make everything better. Dinner, dancing...drinking...the night starts out great with the foursome setting out to revisit some of their school day haunts with hilarious results.
And then things get serious. Secrets never mix well with absinthe. Josie wants to revive the friendships, remind the others what they have together, and end the night with the four of them closer than ever.
It might be too much to ask.

You never know what's going to happen when four BFFs get together to celebrate a fortieth birthday ... What should have been a fun night of eating, drinking, and dancing, turns into something more for these lifelong friends when a lot of drinking has a way of bringing secrets, fears, issues, and insecurities to the surface ... Absinthe Doesn't Make The Heart Grow Fonder is an entertaining tale set in Toronto that follows four best friends: Josie, Lana, Poppy, and Meredith, over the course of an evening spent celebrating Josie's fortieth birthday. Told in an alternating first person narrative by the four women, the reader follows the four best friends' tradition of celebrating their birthdays together, but over the years it has become increasingly hard for them to get together, so this year Josie is desperate to keep the tradition alive, only to have tension, drama, buried secrets, and personal issues revealed that will ultimately test their bonds of friendship. I really enjoyed reading this story, it has a wonderful mixture of humor, drama, tension, and intrigue that only women friends are capable of sharing with one another. You can't help but get drawn into these four women's stories as their night out unfolds with flashbacks and conversations that bring unexpected secrets and truths to the surface when drinking is added into the mix. The style of writing is clever, it draws the reader into the circle of friends as they listen to the various topics that are brought up during the night, you can't help but wonder what will be revealed next! And just when you think that you got all the women's stories straight, the author throws in an unexpected twist of an ending that will leave you shaking your head and wondering what the hell just happened! Absinthe Doesn't Make The Heart Grow Fonder is an exhilarating roller coaster ride of a tale that could only be told when four women best friends get together for a girl's night out!
