Envy, regret, and all the other "what ifs" come together in this gripping novel of women's fiction, great for your next beach read.
Do we ever really know the ones we love? Or do the secrets between us get in the way?
Reclusive Clare Collins crafts her novels like she crafts her life: perfectly. So the world is stunned when the famous author is found dead on a beach from a self-inflicted gunshot—the morning after her latest book hits the shelves.
Her sister, Eileen, is at a loss. Clare led a charmed life: success, mansions, money... Why would she throw it all away? But while reading through her sister's latest—and greatest—novel, Eileen discovers a clue that unravels the fiction of their perfect family and reveals the painful truth.
Suddenly, Clare's enviable life doesn't seem so sparkling, and Eileen must confront the shadows of the past that have hung over them both.
Her Perfect Life is a page-turning debut that reminds us that no matter the success, everyone has secrets. And some are more devastating than others.
Hard to believe this is a 1st adult novel
From 1st page to last, I was completely hooked. The characters are so fully developed, each so different, each so memorable, each so personal to me. This book will linger much longer than most.
