Review of HER PERFECT LIFE by Hank Phillippi Ryan

Wow! I mean all caps, WOW! I have not read a book this fast in years, but I honestly couldn’t put this one down. This psychological thriller is a character study about family and choices (good and bad ones). It’s about innocence and second chances. Oh, my! The story is centered around a television investigative reporter named Lily who is known as #PerfectLily because that is how her life seems to be. She has a producer named Greer as her friend, a nanny named Petra to take care of her household and the most darling little seven year old named Rowen that anyone could ever hope to meet within the pages of a book. But all is not actually perfect in Lily’s life because when she was about Rowen’s age, her beloved older sister Cassie came into her room and told her good-bye and then vanished. Lily has always wondered what happened to Cassie, but there are no easy answers and even though she has the intelligence and connections to find her, she hasn’t been successful in her quest. When a confidential informant starts feeding Lily and Greer information, they are a little wary but the tips are useful so they choose not to look a gift horse in the mouth. When Lily starts getting strange gifts, she begins to suspect that what the detective had told her about Cassie may not be the truth. Her investigation and its effect on her life is the crux of the story, but there is so much more to it! You just have to read it to find out why I am absolutely in love with this book and cannot recommend it highly enough. Secrets, lies, betrayals! The characterization was perfection and the plot was captivating from beginning to end. As I said, I couldn’t devour it fast enough and know that you will want to get your hands on this little jewel as soon as possible. Just book a weekend away to read it because you will want to keep reading until you have found the mystery to #PerfectLily.
