    A twistedly exciting turn of events!

    A holiday romance with a twistedly exciting turn of events! // Susanne, Dale, and Evie are due for a much-needed vacation, a leave of absence from their everyday lives. Luckily for them, a neighbor has the perfect villa available in Tuscany free of charge - the only catch, they've been asked to keep an eye on her twenty-four-year-old godson, Harry. It seems like a small price to pay for the perfect holiday getaway... or is it? // The book blurb does a fine job depicting "The Perfect Liar"; it surely piqued my interest. Let's not forget that jaw-dropper of an ending! I very much enjoyed reading through as it all unfolded. While it took me a minute to really get into this story and parts of it were predictable, it was certainly worth the read for that twist at the end and the immaculate descriptions held within. The scenery of Tuscany was wonderfully detailed, as was the delicious-sounding foods. I'd have loved to have holidayed at that villa with (just) my family! Harvey's carefully crafted friendships, woven deceits amongst various characters, as well as the narrative told from multiple viewpoints, both past and present, were quite fascinating! // I'd recommend this read to anyone interested in suspensefully slow-build with a satisfying pay-off! Many thanks to NetGalley, the author Beverley Harvey, and the publishers at Bookouture for my advanced copy of this ebook. I have honestly and voluntarily reviewed this title.

    Fab read!

    This fabulous read lured me in easily. It was like, ooh err, all is lovely, these ladies are on holiday... wonderful stuff! Until something shifted. At first it was subtle but then... alarm bells! The first few chapters entertainingly introduced me to Susie, Dale and Evie. Three women with totally unique voices, and I enjoyed reading each of their points of view. I had vibes of holiday romance, laughs, and stacks of fun but with a sinister undertone, after all, it is a psychological thriller. The story centres around when Susie met Harry. He had this godlike vibe about him that had me screaming, ‘watch yourself Susie.’ But hey, where would the fun in that be? It’s a thriller after all, so go ahead, Susie. Maybe it will all just work out. Did it work out? You’ll have to read it to get the answer to that one but the ending is a touch of greatness. That final chapter was fab and set my mind whirring. The journey was fantastic and the characters were totally memorable, and the revelations - oh my! Evie’s more reserved nature contrasted brilliantly against Dale’s tell-it-like-it-is. The secrets and lies must come to a head and bam! I wasn’t disappointed. ‘The Perfect Liar’ is a brilliant psychological thriller set in Tuscany and I loved it. I felt the balmy warmth slowly turn into suffocation and I felt trust slowly being eroded. This book is totally addictive which is why I read it in two sittings. It’s an easy read, one of those where you don’t really see the words on the pages. Super!

    A gripping psychological thriller

    The Perfect Liar is the first book I have read from Beverley Harvey and what a great introduction it was for me to her work. She has produced a thrilling read that I felt I was able to escape into, as the characters that she has created, was able to divert me from my normal day to day and into their world. The story follows three friends Suzanne, Dale and Evie as they embark on a holiday to Tuscany to get away from their troubles and reconnect with each other. There they meet Harry, whom Suzanne is immediately attracted to and has a fling with, but Dale and Evie are sceptical and feel that there is more to Harry than meets the eye. Beverley Harvey goes into detail and gives you good introduction to each of the ladies and their lives, making part of the story so character driven to start with, it is like getting to know a group of new friends. This then leaves you invested into each of them, as the narrative then becomes plot driven further along. The Tuscan location had me feeling like I was also on the holiday with the ladies, laying by the pool, cocktail in hand watching it all unfold and it made for a perfect backdrop. Lets face it, after in being in lockdown for most of this year in Melbourne, Australia as most of the world has also been, the idea of being able to be transported to Tuscany felt dreamlike. The Perfect Liar is a slow build to begin and although the outcome was not a huge surprise to me, the epilogue was! This is Beverley Harvey’s first foray into the world of the psychological thriller and as a fanatical reader of the genre myself, I think she had done a really great job with this book and has put together an entertaining read.

    I loved it!

    Three female friends decide to go on a holiday when they all need a break from everyday life. Their friend Suzanne has the perfect solution, her neighbor has a Tuscan villa which is affordable for the summer and has a great pool. The only stipulation is they have to share it with a young man named Harry, the neighbor's godson. The vacation starts out well enough, they get to tour the area, shop, and eat tons of great food. However, Suzanne and Harry start hooking up, to the disdain of Suzanne's best friend Dale, who is super suspicious of the lad they have just met, and she has every reason to be! People are not always who they appear to be and this made for a great thriller of a book. I hated how super naive Suzanne was until the very end, but I guess you do stupid things when you are completely smitten. This made a great story to read with an ending that left me hanging on the edge of my seat because where it seems like it was going to end, it did not. A sequel perhaps? I hope the author continues this story and gives it a great conclusion. Thank you NetGalley for another fun read!

    Vacation goes off the rails!

    Three friends plan a much needed vacation in Tuscany. They didn’t plan for Harry. Suzanne is wealthy, gorgeous and divorced. Her son is spending the summer with his father so she’s lonely and bored. Her best friend Dale, a teacher, has the summer off. And Evie, a new acquaintance, is still grieving her mother’s death. Suzanne knows her neighbor has a vacation house in Tuscany so, with five weeks free, they’re off on a holiday. There is one catch. Harry, her neighbor’s godson, is also staying at the villa. His new job in finance begins in the fall so he’s traveling in Italy learning the language. The house is large enough for all. Harry is 24, tall, charming and incredibly handsome. Suzanne almost immediately begins a passionate affair with him, disappointing and worrying her friends. While Evie is shocked, Dale is suspicious. Why doesn’t he introduce them to his friends Joe and Sander? And who is Star? The author knows exactly when you will start to realize what is really happening in the villa and introduces a perfectly timed new point of view. The action quickly picks up speed and hurtles toward a totally unexpected conclusion. This is a 5 star read. The weakness is not the author’s fault. The publisher’s description gives too much away. I’m glad I read The Perfect Liar first as that description is a real spoiler. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Beverley Harvey for this ARC.
