But their fresh start is quickly threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.
Determined to find Emmy, Leah helps Detective Kyle Donovan to investigate her friend’s life for clues. But with no friends, family or digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Forced to question her version of reality and to save herself, Leah must uncover the truth – no matter how dark or terrible it may be…
The Perfect Stranger is a slow burning read..
and at times I did get a bit lost with the story.
It is filled with twists and although I had a hard time with this book it is a good read.
I loved All The Missing Girls and this is a worthy follow up, but a lot happens and I wonder if it I would have enjoyed a more simplified tale better.
I had no clue as to how the story would end and I was surprised, I got it all totally wrong.
It is a character driven novel and I loved Kyle, everyone seemed to behave as though they have a secret, and couldn’t be completely trusted but Kyle was solid.
This will be a superb book for a book club read, and I will be recommending it to mine.
