Stella and Emily have been best friends since Junior High. Opposites attracted and their bond formed. Blanche, Stella’s sister was a part of that friendship until her life abruptly halts. Making it through her tragic death is just glue that seals this friendship together. As they grow older their friendship will continue to face trials. But it seems nothing can tear them apart.

Then Stella gets a call asking her to come to Europe for Emily’s quick wedding. The wedding is a surprise and the result of a whirlwind affair. Will this be the final straw in a string of tribulations for them to endure? Can their friendship survive this, the utmost of betrayals?

In Joyride, the author has penned a wonderful story of two women that love each other for who they are, no matter what. While there are some odd romances in here, they help define each woman’s individuality.

Despite its title, Joyride is an emotional rollercoaster. There is an emotional intensity that leaves the reader captivated until the last page. I loved this book, and as it was my first by Ms. Rech, I will definitely be looking for more.
