What happens when your best friend morphs into your worst nightmare – and you’re stuck with her or you’ll lose your job and your self-respect?
That’s the predicament confronting Manhattan book publicist Amy Sherman. It’s been four years since she asked her best friend Tara Messer to be her maid of honor at her wedding to Stuart Lasher… four years since she walked in on Stuart and Tara doing the nasty in her bed… four years since her broken engagement broke her heart.
Now comes a chance meeting with her former BFF on a Manhattan street…
Amy runs into Tara, the beautiful high school blonde prom queen who’s now blissfully married to Stuart, and her ego plunges. Tara brags about her perfect life and asks Amy if she’s dating anyone. Amy swore she’d stop playing second fiddle to self-absorbed Tara, so she’s not about to admit she’s relentlessly single. To save face, she pretends she’s getting married in six months, figuring the lie will never come back to haunt her.
Wrong. The next day, Amy learns that her publishing house has just bought Tara’s lifestyle book. Now, she not only has to promote her nemesis to the media but come up with a temporary Mr. Right to play the part of her fiancé. In desperation, she turns to one of her authors, bestselling mystery writer Tony Stiles, who doesn’t have a clue that he’s being used in a game of one-upsmanship. Will Tara betray her yet again and steal Tony?
In Best Enemies, we get the story from both Amy and Tara in their own voices, and the result is as hilarious as it is truthful – a cautionary tale about trying to keep up appearances even with the person who knows you best.
