The Review
In Between Friends by D. L. Sparks, readers step into a world of investigations and mischievous behavior. Trip Spencer had no intentions of going back to his hometown of Atlanta until he is assigned to work a case involving the killings of well-known drug dealers. Trip tries to look at the bright side because he will be able to see an old friend. While investigation Trip realizes his case is starting to hit close to home. What will Trip do once he finds out whose behind all of the foolishness?

Idalis Arrington old feelings start resurface when she finds out her close friend Trip will be coming home to lead an investigation. Idalis forgets that she is currently engaged to Lincoln Briscoe and he is not happy that his woman’s old friend is coming back into her life. Idalis knows the tension this will bring but she cannot help the way she feels toward Trip. Lincoln’s jealousy, the pressure of planning her wedding among other family issues starts weighing on Idalis mind. Will Idalis ignore the signs or will she listen to her heart?

Between Friends is an entertaining book about deception, secrets and acknowledging true feelings. When a person looks for trouble they will definitely find it especially in this book. I was thrilled with the characters and the plot was consistent and well structured giving me a little bit at a time to keep me interested. I recommend Between Friends to others.
