Happy Sunday book lovers!
Another review for a compelling story about spouses with secrets!💜
I Know WHO You Are!
Oh what a tangled web we weave… Imagine you find a note taped to your front door and all it says is: I know who you are! Would you assume they had the wrong house? Assume it was for your spouse? Your child? Or would you know you have something to hide and it was meant for you? This is the note that Susanna and Max found taped to their front door one morning, the note that changed everything, the note that they both thought was intended for them. Two people with many secrets to hide, but only one note, who was it meant for? And who knows the truth? Who truly is the “PERFECT LIAR“?
this was one dark compelling story about two pretty disturbed dishonest people. A marriage that appears like a fairytale on the outside, but is riddled with so much deceit on the inside. Two seemingly well adjusted attractive people with so much to hide. So much to lose. Told from the alternating perspectives of both Susanna and Max this book definitely kept me on my toes.
An engaging and entertaining read, but you will need to suspend your belief a little. There is a stolen identity in this book (don’t worry this is not a spoiler) and a simple Google search could probably clear a lot of things up, but the search was never made, well at least not by the right people. Things like this don’t generally bother me, but it did make me think hmm… so if you are one of those people that needs everything to be realistic, you are forewarned for this one! Despite this the book is highly addictive with some very well drawn despicable characters. So many secrets, so many lies, you never are quite sure whose side to be on, if any. Recommend!

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?
Why do you smile
Like you have told a secret
Now you’re telling lies
‘Cause you’re the one to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret
Why when we do our darkest deeds
Do we tell?
They burn in our brains
Become a living hell
‘Cause everyone tells

About the Book
A seemingly perfect marriage is threatened by the deadly secrets husband and wife keep from each other, for fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins.
Susannah, a young widow and single mother, has remarried well: to Max, a charismatic artist and popular speaker whose career took her and her fifteen-year-old son out of New York City and to a quiet Vermont university town. Strong-willed and attractive, Susannah expects that her life is perfectly in place again. Then one quiet morning she finds a note on her door: I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
Max dismisses the note as a prank. But days after a neighborhood couple comes to dinner, the husband mysteriously dies in a tragic accident while on a run with Max. Soon thereafter, a second note appears on their door: DID YOU GET AWAY WITH IT?
Both Susannah and Max are keeping secrets from the world and from each other —secrets that could destroy their family and everything they have built. The Perfect Liar is a thrilling novel told through the alternating perspectives of Susannah and Max with a shocking climax that no one will expect, from the bestselling author of The Headmaster’s Wife.
