Three Perfect Liars
From the author of the “breathtaking, bone-chilling work of psychological suspense” (Cristina Alger, USA TODAY bestselling author) Her One Mistake, comes a riveting new suspense novel about three ambitious women whose lives are turned upside down after a horrifying fire threatens to expose a tangled web of lies.
Laura has returned to work at Morris and Wood after her maternity leave, only to discover that the woman she brought in to cover for her isn’t going anywhere. Despite her close relationship with the agency’s powerful CEO, she feels sidelined—and outmaneuvered—as she struggles to balance the demands of work and motherhood.
Mia was only supposed to be a temporary hire at Morris and Wood, but she’s managed to make herself indispensable to everyone. Everyone, that is, except Laura. If people only knew why she was so desperate to keep her job, they might not want her to stay.
Janie gave up everything to support her husband and the successful agency he runs. But she has her own dark secret to protect…and will go to any lengths to keep it safe.
With her signature “chilling, captivating” (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author) prose, Heidi Perks weaves another bone-chilling and unputdownable thriller in the vein of Watching You and The Couple Next Door.
Following the fatal fire that reduces the Morris and Wood advertising agency's showplace headquarters on Britain's south coast to smoldering rubble, the Lymington police face a somewhat unusual problem a glut of suspects in this ingeniously plotted page-turner from Perks (Her One Mistake). Persons of interest include CEO Harry Wood's disgruntled wife, prominent former barrister Janie; Harry's prot g e as well as his rumored mistress Laura Denning, incensed at returning from maternity leave to find that the temp she hired has filled her shoes all too well; and the no longer temporary Mia Anderson, who may just have a hidden agenda. But all the intramural turmoil serves as springboard for the far darker and twistier tale that emerges as the author gradually exposes these women's secret ambitions, jealousies, and sorrows. Though it's tougher to empathize with some of the leading ladies than it should be new mother Laura becomes increasingly off-putting as she treats her supportive stay-at-home husband like a doormat this puzzler takes enough turns to keep readers hooked until the final bombshell. Psychological thriller fans will look forward to more from Perks.
Three Perfect Liars
The book started out very intriguing and immediately caught my attention. As the pages dragged on, there was a lot of repetition that soon became boring. It took a while for the author to get past the repeats and finally into the meat of the story. I found myself skimming pages to finish the book. The author’s writing style is interesting as she jumps between the past and present. The ending was anticlimactic.
Slow to develop
Enjoyable read but very slow to go anywhere. I related to the characters, and it was well written, I just felt like we never got anywhere. Won’t be one I’ll remember.
