Two best friends.
One missed chance.
And a night that changes everything.
Eve, Justin, Susie and Ed have been friends since they were eighteen. Now in their 30s, the four are still as close as ever, Thursday pub quiz night is still sacred, and Eve is still secretly in love with Ed.
Maybe Eve should have moved on by now, but she can’t stop thinking about what could have been. And she knows Ed sometimes thinks about it too.
Then one night, in an instant, all their lives change forever. And, as Eve learns she didn’t know her friends as well as she thought, she also discovers she isn’t the only person keeping secrets…

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
British author Mhairi McFarlane has once again delivered a gorgeous page-turner that confidently lands in that sweet spot between comedy and heartbreaking gut-punch. Last Night follows a group of friends in their early thirties as they try to find their footing after an unexpected tragedy. Romantic troubles brew as long-held secrets are uncovered and the group’s capacity to withstand emotional hardship evaporates. Packed with brilliant touches and pop culture references, McFarlane’s dialogue crackles with fiery wit. Told through the eyes of charming protagonist Eve, the novel explores how sometimes, friends can become more important than family, and even the strongest family ties can twist and break. It’s an absorbing read.
