    Gripping

    If I had to use one word to describe this book it would be gripping. I also have to note that the title is perfect. The characters are real, in that we know them. We've met them, worked with them, gone to school with them, we know them. That's what draws you into their lives, is the desire to see where their lives are going. The more information that is provided to us, the more we want. I can't really get into particulars here, but I can tell you that it is a worthwhile read. It will have you thinking for sure. The writing is good, the story keeps you hanging on, and you will enjoy the ride. My copy was provided by NetGalley.com and the publisher, for which I thank them.

    A fab read

    This was a perfect thriller where the short snappy chapters made me nearly inhale the book. High school was more the political ground than ever, and Claire wanting to fit in and keep her perfect appearance did something bad and damaged someone. That boomeranged years later when she thought she had the perfect family and career. The book started with the perfect prologue which had me looking at the author Karen Osman with new eyes. She knew the right words to pull me in. It was like a hook dangling in front of me, luring me away from my routine. I am weak willed like that. I couldn’t resist. The writing was perfect where every chapter made me feel as if a shadow of the past was dogging my steps, snapping at my feet to make me read faster. The swirling winds buffeted me and pushed me to fall apart when the book reached its zenith. Past always has a hold on the future especially if it is a bad deed. And the author brought it out perfectly. The pace was kept steady throughout the book with hints about Claire, added at every chapter which beguiled me completely. And the characters, where do I begin with? Claire’s need for perfection had me shaking my head, but the inner small sliver of me had to acknowledge I too have been guilty of that vice. The unraveling and fear and dread were the emotions acutely felt by me reflecting off Claire. A perfect breakfast read which had me so enthralled and eager to get to the end that I missed my bus to work. Ah well… The traffic jam excuse always works

    Chilling & Gripping

    A cracking, all-consuming psychological thriller! The Perfect Lie was a chilling tale, told from alternate timelines of present day and the late 1980's. An extremely well thought-out dual plot-line had me guessing until the very end, The story unfolded slowly but Karen Osman's writing was so fluid and full of detail. This was beautifully structured, entirely believable and really gripping. It was book I really lost myself in - and the ending was just perfect! An awesome story, worth much more than the five stars I can give it. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Aria via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
