But what if Paige doesn’t make it in time? Is Jess still alive? Or is someone playing a twisted game with Paige?

REVIEWS FOR THE PERFECT SECRET

“In The Perfect Secret, Steena Holmes has created one of the most fascinating protagonists and plots I’ve ever read. Holmes weaves a twisted, diabolical web of deceit, manipulation, and murder that grips from the very first line. Brilliantly constructed and creepy, with a truly shocking ending, this is a psychological suspense that will blow your mind.” ~ Samantha M. Bailey, #1 bestselling author of Woman on the Edge

“Dark, twisted and packed full of suspense, with a protagonist you’ll root for and creepy villains you’ll love to hate, The Perfect Secret is a diabolical, masterfully told tale. Steena Holmes certainly knows how to grip her readers from the very beginning, and keeps them guessing until the satisfying end. I loved every page and this book isn’t to be missed.” ~ Hannah Mary McKinnon, bestselling author of Sister Dear

“Steena Holmes is quickly becoming the queen of dark and creepy villains, and the one in The Perfect Secret is definitely not who you expect. A dark and twisty story filled with secrets–not all of them perfect–and one whopper of a surprise. Say goodbye to sleep and read it like I did, in one sitting. A story where nothing is as it seems.”
 ~ Kimberly Belle, internationally bestselling author of Dear Wife & Stranger in the Lake 

“Sometimes I pick up a book at a perfect moment and after reading a few sentences, a part of my brain curls up like a cozy cat in a patch of sunlight and says OH YES PLEASE. This book was my perfect book during a moment of distracted anguish when I needed to escape from the weird and complicated world by living the life of another person. It’s twisted, it’s beautiful, it has a structure that I lost myself in as a reader and envied as a writer. I loved everything about this book. Steena Holmes walks that painful perfect line between sadness and strength, tension and terror, gory and gripping. Even the tagline is AMAZING. If you need to immerse yourself in a slippery world where no one is who they seem to be and every word teases you into turning another page, this is your next (awesome) read.” ~Amber Cowie, author of Loss Lake

“THE PERFECT SECRET is a glorious mix of tight plotting, squirmy yet fascinating details, and rich characterization. Ten stars out of five for a fantastic thriller that fans of Lisa Gardner and Brenda Novak will love.”
