Publisher's Summary

In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls - "think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl" (TheSkimm) - a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.

Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend's life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah's credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey - and, along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide - including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?

Critic Reviews

"YA author Miranda, who moved into the adult market with All the Missing Girls, proves she isn't a one-hit wonder with this exciting thriller. Its twisty tale with many layers - a little romance, great writing, and an awesome story line - will keep psychological suspense fans turning the pages." ( Library Journal)
"Solid plot...an entertaining read." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Rebekkah Ross is pure gold

I loved this story and Rebekkah Ross brought it to life! This character is quiet yet determined. Beware the silent type. She’s fierce.

boring

What would have made Perfect Stranger better?

Endless, unnecessary details--made a boring, drawn out story line.
Narrator was weak.

Has Perfect Stranger turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Rebekkah Ross’s performances?

No, not at all. Her voice is that of someone very young, and her inflections were distracting.

What character would you cut from Perfect Stranger?

Assistant pruincipal.

Any additional comments?

This does not deserve a 4 star rating.

It was ok

I have read a couple other books by the author that I enjoyed very much but this one I just struggled to get through. the big plot twist became pretty clear about half way through so I felt like I was just waiting for it but worst of all I had to keep rewinding the book (like several chapters back) because I would suddenly realize I had tuned out many chapters back. Narrator was great as usual but book was just lacking something major.

Choppy story

So many storylines it was hard to keep up. The ending felt rushed with unanswered questions

Very long, drawn out

The premise was very interesting but unfortunately this book is just an overly long unrealistic introspection by a very annoying character.
The plot is uninteresting. The main character really thing she is something else because she was “a journalist “ and by some magical twist she pretty much gets away with everything.
Also it repeats itself non stop, I kind of feel bad for the poor narrator who probably was thinking “seriously? We already said this 12 times!”

To sum up: no very good
Will no read this author again

not bad, I've looked her other books more. I couldn't connect with this main character.
