Mr B's review

In rural Wyoming, best buds Teddy, Cole and Bart run their own construction company and take on the project of their dreams. The creation of an architectural masterpiece in the mountains soon turns into a nightmare, testing the limits of their friendship and the lengths of their ambition. In building something new, much is destroyed, but will it have been worth it?


‘Mesmerising.’ The Herald, Best Books to read this summer

‘A glorious novel, as lyrical as it is suspenseful – breathless, tense, and shimmering.’ STEPH CHA

‘My daddy always told me, if it looks too good to be true – then it probably is.’

Bart, Teddy and Cole have been best friends since childhood. Having founded their own small-town construction company, they yearn to build a legacy, something to leave behind to their families. So when Gretchen Connors, a mysterious millionaire lawyer from California, approaches them with a stunning, almost formidable project in the mountains above their town, the three friends convince themselves it’s the job which will secure their future.

But what is Gretchen hiding from them? And why does the build have to be complete by Christmas, a near-impossible deadline? With the lines between ambition and greed more slippery and dangerous than the three friends ever imagined, how far will they push themselves and what will be the cost of their dream?

From the author of the international bestseller Shotgun Lovesongs, Godspeed is an unforgettable tale of family, friendship and temptation.
