Three Perfect Liars is a well-crafted thriller about the conflicts and vulnerabilities women feel when returning from maternity leave.
Laura is sad to leave her 6-month-old son at home with her husband, Nate. But she is excited to return to her high-powered advertising job after her six month maternity leave. She’s excited but only until she arrives at work. You see, the temp Laura hired, named Mia, is sitting at Laura’s desk. Laura’s boss pulls Laura into his office and informs her he hired Mia as a permanent employee. Worse, he has given Laura’s best account to Mia. Laura is furious and vows to get Mia fired. Instead, did Laura literally set the building on fire two months later? Or was that Mia?
Three Perfect Liars is an intriguing thriller about how women and men relate to each other in the workplace. It is also about family dynamics. It is a good beach read and recommended for women’s fiction fans. 3.5 stars!
