  • One of her best books so far

    Wow, what a phenomenal book. In it, Chris infiltrates a high school as a teacher and coach. He quickly begins looking for a loner boy to serve as his "unwitting" patsy. This novel starts out with that disturbing premise, then quickly takes off in directions that I couldn't predict. This is one of those books that will haunt you long after you've put it down. The author has meticulously researched the setting and details, making the novel feel very credible and real. This is different from her legal thrillers, but fans will not be disappointed as this is one of her (IMHO) best books yet. This is a must read novel that fans of the genre will love.....and if you're not a fan of the genre, this might just change your mind. The author is on my must read authors' list.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Lots of surprises in this book!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I have to say that there were a few surprises along the way in this story and I really like surprises. Especially in books. I started reading this book thinking that things were going in a certain direction until everything changed and I had no idea where this book would end up. That is exactly the kind of reading experience that I like to have. This was one of those books that kept me guessing. Chris Brennan is seemingly perfect. But everything about him is a lie. He is hired to teach at the local high school and he is also going to be the assistant baseball coach. He has his story worked out and everyone seems to love him right from the start. Now he just needs to figure out which kid is going to be the best choice to fit into his plan. The characters in this book grew on me. I had a hard time connecting with anyone at the beginning of the book but by the time I had reached the end of the story I thought they were great. Most of the characters are just really good people although imperfect. They all have things going on in their lives that impact their behaviors but they seemed to be doing the best that they could under the circumstances. I loved the writing. There was a lot of action in this book that really kept the pace moving. There were a lot more twists and turns than I was expecting which really kept the story interesting. This story felt very real. While it is a fictional story, everything that happened in this story felt like something that could really happen which was actually quite scary. This was a big story and the fact that it felt authentic was a big plus. I would highly recommend this book to others. It was a very fast paced story that could be hard to put down at times. I have been a fan of Lisa Scottoline for a number of years and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next. I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley.

  • Contemporary Mystery/Thriller

    One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline Going into the story we know that Chris Brennan is not the same man on paper as he is in real life. Is he good? Is he bad? What is he up to? As he spends time finding out more about the school he teaches in, the community he is living in and the people in town he learns various tidbits of information that are like bread crumbs leading the way to the finale. There are some deaths, some bad people to uncover, some people to save, a bit of romance and ended up being a solid story that ultimately dealt with a “what if” that has happened before and very easily could happen again. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3.5 Stars
