I am trying to get caught up with reviews for the book I have read for my #20booksofsummer #reading challenge. Today I have a review for book #9 Three Perfect Liars my Heidi Perks.
GOSSIP SPREADS FAST.
LIES CAN BE TOXIC.
SECRETS CAN KILL.
When an office fire ends in murder, three women are first in line for questioning.
What is Laura trying to hide?
What is Mia trying to protect?
What would Janie risk for revenge?
They never thought it would come to this.
But nothing can be hidden forever…
The synopsis for this book gives a very good idea about this story. A story about 3 women, Laura, Mia and Janie. What do these 3 women have in common, well they all have a connection to the same company. Laura has been on maternity leave and has just returned back. Mia has been covering Laura’s leave. Janie is the wife of the owner.
The story took me a while to get into, it seemed a little confusing as I was taken back and forth on the timeline. The present is the police questioning various suspects. The past is the lead up to a fire that leaves the offices burnt down and a body inside.
While I did like the story in general, I did feel that the police questioning took the edge off it a bit. I think my impatience to want to know more about the women and what they were all about was more interesting. The questioning was initially a little repetitive but did get better as the story progressed.
I much preferred the lead up to the fire, this felt more edgy. It was a slower paced story and while I did like wondering what was going on, I felt like there was too much speculation, gossip and more questions.
It is a good book if you like a slower paced story that is intriguing, and you like a mystery that takes a while to fully understand. I would recommend it as I did read it over a couple of days and needed to know what was going on and eventually find out the truth.
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
