BLOG TOUR - A Perfect Stranger


Two marriages. Three little lies. Someone’s going to die…

I hold my breath as my handsome husband walks through the door. I’ve planned the perfect surprise birthday party for him. Our friends are gathered and the champagne is flowing. But when I catch the look in his deep brown eyes, I realise I’ve got this horribly wrong.

All evening my stomach is churning. And I can’t help but notice 
Danielle Baines speaking with Aiden. With her salon-styled hair, diamonds glittering on her ring finger and married to a rich businessman she has the kind of lifestyle I can only dream of. I’ve never liked her. And I know the feeling is mutual.

So why is she here and what is she saying to my husband?

Now it’s the end of the party and the man I love is confessing a secret that shocks me to the core. But it’s not what I was afraid of. It’s much worse.

He says we have to take our son and leave the place we call home because our lives are in danger.

I thought I knew everything about my husband. But suddenly he feels like a stranger. Should I trust him with my life?

From the million-copy bestselling author, this totally gripping psychological thriller will have you guessing until the last jaw-dropping twist. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Wife Between Us.

Aiden tells his pregnant wife Emily that they and their little boy have to get away, and even change their names. What is going on that Aiden feels that his family is in such danger? While it’s more than clear that Aiden has been acting a little bit funny, Emily thought their lives are going along well, especially now that she is pregnant again. 

But they are not the only couple in this book …

There is also Dani and Marcus. How are they related to Emily and Aiden? Well, at first their connection seems unclear, but Marcus is actually Aidan’s boss. Dani and Marcus have their share of problems. In fact, between the two couples, someone ends up dead. What nefarious activities are going on that brings about such a shocking event? 

Per norm for Shalini Boland, she does not miss a beat when it comes to her latest book. In fact, the tension starts from the very beginning and doesn’t let up for one second, especially considering all of the issues that these couples are balancing in their marriages. Considering the lies and secrets going on, it comes to no surprise that the mysteries surrounding these couples leads to shocking revelations.

With excellent pacing, a thrilling story, dual POVs, and the requisite twists and turns made this book impossible to put down. Readers:  definitely, definitely read to the very end, because their is an incredible jaw-dropping twist. A Perfect Stranger is the 10th book I have read by this amazing author and is one that I could not put down.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
