The Perfect Life

The Perfect Life


Vanessa has always found it easy to pretend to be somebody different, somebody better. When things get tough in her real life, all she has to do is throw on some nicer clothes, adopt a new accent and she can escape.

That's how it started: looking round houses she couldn't possibly afford. Harmless fun really. Until it wasn't.

Because a man who lived in one of those houses is dead.

And everyone thinks Vanessa killed him...

Our Review

I enjoyed the previous book I enjoyed by this author but I ended up not finishing this. I found it hard to emotionally engage with the protagonist and after a few chapters I ended up giving up. I tried again later but didn't make it much further because I couldn't care less what happened. 

Vanessa enjoys pretending to be other people and going to look round houses she can't afforrd. Harmless fun until the police show up asking to speak to her about a murder. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Penguin for the advance copy.
