Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew–and that person is dead.
Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day even if the shocking truth might destroy her.
What did I think?
There’s no denying that the blurb of this book pulled me in…I liked the sound of it so much that I accidentally bought two copies on different shopping trips…oops! That’s great for you though because it means I’m going to have a giveaway coming up very soon – keep your eyes peeled!
Now, the blurb may have pulled me in but the book pushed me back out a bit – I was so deflated after reading it because my hopes had been set high. I’m not saying it’s not a good read because it is, but it definitely wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be!
Knight has fantastic writing skills which is what kept me reading, I was waiting for that huge moment that was going to take me by surprise but every time I thought it was there, it flopped. That’s what frustrated me so much, I was expecting loads and got so little.
There is such a great base for a fantastic read but I don’t think Disclaimer has taken the route it possibly should have – probably quite an unpopular view of the book, I know. It’s been likened to lots of other great books so maybe it was just me?
My Rating? ♥♥♥
