Year Published: 2018
Genre: Women’s Fiction; Chick Lit
Scarlett Walsh is twenty-something, single, and lonely in Chicago. Still reeling from an unexpected breakup that left her broken hearted, Scarlett relies heavily on her group of girlfriends to help heal and move forward. But her friendship with BFF and long-time roommate Tinsley Thompson has turned toxic, and Scarlett is on the brink of moving out – and causing more friction to the already rocky friendship. Wishing to avoid drama amongst their close group of girlfriends, Scarlett attempts to stay focused on her job as a vet tech and the excitement of being a first-time puppy mom instead of confronting Tinsley. The rift between the two friends continues to grow – until a dark secret is shared that will rock the decade-long besties.
This second book in a six-part girlfriend series continues the stories of Scarlett, Breely, Nora, Lauren, Kristy and Tinsley, and takes readers on six individual stories about relationships, career choices, personal conflict and the bond of friendship.

My Take on the Book:
It’s wonderful to be carrying on with the series of ‘The Six’ by Samantha March. This was quite a quick and pleasant read for me, even though at times I did find the conversation a bit frivolous. For those who love Chick Lit/Women’s Fiction with some life themes woven through them, definitely pick this book up. I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.
One last thing I’m going to say about this series – if you’re in your twenties trying to figure out life; be sure to read this series. I find that the themes Samantha touches on in these books SO relevant for those who are in the throes of figuring out life in their twenties. This is definitely fiction – but it’s very relevant fiction – with the potential to spark some ideas of how to get through the tougher trials in life. I really wish that this series had been around when I was in my earlier twenties – but I guess reading the start of the series in the last year of your twenties still count – right?
