Jack Jordan is a highly respected journalist who is willing to be put in the most dangerous of situations in order to get the story. Kitty Carricoe is a mother and wife in the most prestigious Chicago suburb. Her only concerns are PTA meetings and birthday parties. Jack and Kitty have been bitter enemies ever since college. Their animosity is legendary, but they have one thing in common, their best friend Sarabeth. When Sarabeth's husband is tragically and suspiciously killed in a plane crash Jack comes in off of her assignment and Kitty leaves her posh Lakeside neighborhood and they come together to help Sarabeth through her crisis. Speculation starts to mount that Trip was up to no good with his client's money and the two enemies decide to pair up to get to the bottom of his shenanigans. Their "investigation" takes them to the most unlikely places and discovers the most unlikely truths. Will they be able to bury the hatchet once and for all?
Jen Lancaster is one author whose sense of humor comes through with every word she writes. There were many times throughout the book that I found myself chuckling and even laughing out loud. Jack and Kitty were fun characters, Kitty is so over the top she was almost cartoonish - at first. The more we get to know Kitty the more we realize that there is more to her than meets the eye. I liked Jack from the very beginning and found her to be easier to relate to than Kitty. Once the two of them teamed up they were a force to be reckoned with in quite the hysterical manner. I will say that I was very surprised by the end of the book. Typically I can figure that type of stuff out rather quickly, but Jen Lancaster surprised me!
Bottom line - The Best of Enemies was a light and fun read. One where you can lose yourself in the fun and fluffy world created by one of my favorite authors. Definitely worth the read!

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
