Hello, fellow readers! I finally won a book from a Goodreads giveaway last year, and it was an ARC of Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah. I honestly didn’t think anyone ever actually won Goodreads giveaways because I have had terrible luck with them for the past couple of years!
Thank you, William Morrow, for providing me with a review copy of this title. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Twelve years ago, Beth and her best friend, Flora, parted ways. Beth decides to drive by Flora’s house while she is taking her son to a football game. She see Flora getting out of her car with her children, Thomas and Emily. The last time Beth saw the kids, they were 5 and 3 years old. Twelve years later, they look exactly the same.
This was one of those books that I had to make myself pick up, but usually once I did, it would become very addictive. The mystery started out strong for me and I was instantly hooked, but then the plot became very repetitive for about 100 pages. There were times when I thought the concept would have made a better novella or short story instead of a full novel. I don’t know what I was expecting from the ending, but it definitely wasn’t anything shocking or ground breaking in the genre. There were so many lies in the last 100 pages that I didn’t even really care how the book ended, I just wanted it to be over.
