The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton

The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton

Happy publication day to this UNREAL suspense thriller by the incredible Karen Hamilton!!! πŸ“š

A million thanks to @harpercollinsca for sending me a copy of this one - it was the perfect read for my tastes; batshit crazy narrator, never ending suspense, twists and turns out of nowhere and a delightfully sinister tone from start to finish. Perrrrrfection. πŸ“š

Karen writes the most GLORIOUS love-to-hate character with Juliette. Clearly Juliette is entirely nuts, and doing really psychotic and despicable things - AND YET - I found myself time after time hoping she would get away with things, not get caught and get her way. When you can write a character as insane and unlikable as Juliette and STILL get the reader to root for her, you are a writing magician in my books. πŸ“š

Everything about this book was enjoyable for me - it was so quick paced and easy to read that I had no qualms with staying up well into the night; the way Karen reveals a little bit of Juliette's backstory at a time so you can start connecting the dots, but still have no idea how things will turn out; the inside look at how life as a flight attendant works. All of it comes together to become this fascinating plot that flies along so quickly you realize you're almost done before you are ready for it to end. πŸ“š

I won't reveal even a hint of a spoiler, but I will say that I SINCERELY hope this one gets made into a movie because it would be FANTASTIC. I can't wait to see what Karen comes up with next! πŸ“š

Happy Tuesday my friends! Let me know what your reading this week that should be on my radar! πŸ“š

Book Synopsis:

YOU’VE NEVER READ A LOVE STORY AS TWISTED AS THIS.

Juliette loves Nate.

She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back.

She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain...
