The Perfect Stranger
Summary: In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls, a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.
Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.
Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.
Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I really enjoyed All The Missing Girls last summer have been eagerly awaiting The Perfect Stranger since I heard the news about it.
The character, Leah, had the air of an unreliable narrator about her. As I said in my Goodreads review- “you just can’t be too sure she’s telling the truth or telling ‘her’ truth”.
What I Liked:
The cover. Gorgeous.
The mystery. It all starts off one way, but you begin to see that this will not be simple. There are tentacles curling many ways and encompassing many characters.
When Leah figures some things out. Leah’s on the run and the why behind it is slowly revealed. But there is even more to the story which Leah figures out.
Bottom line: This is def on par with All The Missing Girls and might be even better!
