“Are you sure he’s someone you can trust? We know nothing at all about him. Who is he, really?”
Susanne and her two best friends have been dreaming of a holiday. All of them need an escape. Especially Susanne, who is reeling from the news that her ex is getting remarried. They need the warm Tuscan sun, delicious Italian food and wine, and – most of all – the time to unwind with each other. What they get is Harry.
Handsome, charming and great company, Harry soon sweeps Susanne off her feet for a holiday fling. And why not? Except that everything he’s told them is a lie.
Who is the man they’ve let into their house – who Susanne has let into her bed? They have no idea what Harry is capable of – what he’s done to get this far, and what he’s prepared to do to ensure he gets his way.
By the time they find out, it will be too late to stop their dream holiday becoming a nightmare.
An utterly addictive, page-turning thriller with a jaw-dropping twist. If you loved The Girlfriend, The Holiday and Something in the Water, you’ll be completely gripped by The Perfect Liar.
The Perfect Liar is the first book I have read from Beverley Harvey and what a great introduction it was for me to her work. She has produced a thrilling read that I felt I was able to escape into, as the characters that she has created, was able to divert me from my normal day to day and into their world.
The story follows three friends Suzanne, Dale and Evie as they embark on a holiday to Tuscany to get away from their troubles and reconnect with each other. There they meet Harry, whom Suzanne is immediately attracted to and has a fling with, but Dale and Evie are sceptical and feel that there is more to Harry than meets the eye.
Beverley Harvey goes into detail and gives you good introduction to each of the ladies and their lives, making part of the story so character driven to start with, it is like getting to know a group of new friends. This then leaves you invested into each of them, as the narrative then becomes plot driven further along.
The Tuscan location had me feeling like I was also on the holiday with the ladies, laying by the pool, cocktail in hand watching it all unfold and it made for a perfect backdrop. Lets face it, after in being in lockdown for most of this year in Melbourne, Australia as most of the world has also been, the idea of being able to be transported to Tuscany felt dreamlike.
The Perfect Liar is a slow build to begin and although the outcome was not a huge surprise to me, the epilogue was! This is Beverley Harvey’s first foray into the world of the psychological thriller and as a fanatical reader of the genre myself, I think she had done a really great job with this book and has put together an entertaining read.
