Twisted. Addictive. Chilling with hint of disbelief. If you love warped psychological thrillers that won’t leave you alone, then THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND is a #mustreadnow type of book!
Okay, deep breath. I finished THE PEFECT GIRLFRIEND by Karen Hamilton about an hour ago and I’m still processing.
If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard of Karen Hamilton before, it’s because this is her debut novel, but trust me, after you read this book, she’s going on your auto-buy list.
If you’ve read my latest novel – THE PATIENT – then you know I love endings that you aren’t able to tie up with a nice little bow. THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND is one of those books. When I closed my kindle, I had to take a deep breath and let what I think continues to happen play out in my head.
There are so many twists, turns, impossibilities you didn’t see coming. And then there were the things you did…the plot twists you knew had to happen but couldn’t believe it when they did. I’m not going to give the story away, but if you enjoyed YOU and if you are one of those who enjoy a good train wreck, you are going to love this novel.
There’s hints of love, tons of betrayal, sadness and neurotic behaviour thrown in. The author brings you history of being in the travel industry front and centre in this novel and it adds elements of layers that only enhance the depth of the twists.
I started this novel Wednesday night and finished it this morning. I absolutely loved THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND and I know you will too!
