Book Review of The Best Friend Problem by Mariah Ankenman

My Review

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned, and that’s okay. When Pru’s entire world shifts against her perfectly planned life, she has to learn to roll with the punches. Luckily, she has a great best friend who stays by her side, someone who might actually be more than just a best friend.

I wasn’t a big fan of Pru from the beginning, and she didn’t get much better by the end, but I did like Finn and I enjoyed their chemistry. There were many places where I laughed out loud, and others where I smiled. Overall, a good read.

My rating: 3.5 stars


Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the twenty-first century—Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.

Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find… she’s already pregnant.

As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings? Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?
