Heroine’s cause: best friend or grandmother-figure/mentor?

In the novel I am currently writing, the heroine (Rayvin) returns to her hometown after a relationship goes sour, both to help out a friend and to start over again.  Now here’s the problem:  should her friend be her own age (which is in the draft in progress), or should this woman be an older individual – like a surrogate mother, or a grandmother-figure?  Which would be more interesting to a reader?  What would grab you in a paranormal romance – a woman saving her best friend, or saving the woman who was like her own mother?
