Описание

In the masterful follow-up to the New York Times bestseller 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 a 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?

    Really enjoyed this book!

    This mystery was mostly intriguing, but I do have several sticking points with the story. Why was Leah so unquestioning, so trusting, with her friend Emmy to the point where she really knew nothing about her or her background? Why did the author feel that she needed to make the story unnecessarily complicated by focusing so much on Leah's previous life in Boston? Why did Leah do so much detective work on her own and leave the police in the dark? I always find it annoying when characters do this. Anyway, it was an OK story but could have used some editing.

    Wow! This book is a nail biter to the end. I loved this book!

    Great summer read. A disgraced journalist moves to a small town in Pennsylvania to start over as a teacher. She moves along with an old college friend of hers that she just reconnected with in a bar. And it goes from there. Who is this friend. What connection does the dead girl have to her friend? Is she being stalked by one of her fellow teachers? Is her friends life a lie. Good ending.

    After reading All the Missing Girls, I was expecting more out of this book. It was a decent read, but I would not read it again. I was hoping it would have the same style of writing and layout as All the Missing Girls because it was different. This was nothing like that.

    Leah Stevens, a former journalist starting over as a teacher, learns that a young woman, Bethany, has been attacked near the house she shares with Emmy. Then Leah realizes that she has not seen Emmy for days. When the police investigate, it is as if Emmy never existed.I found this story slow and it constantly went back and forth in time repetitively. We were supposed to see Leah as a "dogged" journalist, but she displays no curiosity at all about Emmy, and Leah's big story which led to her downfall was in fact fuelled by SPOILERa desire for personal vengeance. Leah seems to be an ineffectual teacher and a poor judge of character. Her loyalty to Emmy was mystifying (they seemed mostly to have drunk a lot of vodka together and smiled at one another when Emmy stole things), and her insistence on constantly keeping things from the police seemed at odds with her desire for truth. Just generally annoying and unpleasant in tone.

    3 1/2 stars - great premise but the ending was confusing.

    I received this for free on NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. After ready All the Missing Girls, I couldn't wait to get into this one. This is about a former journalist named Leah who becomes involved in an investigation into an assault case. She is also looking into her missing roommate, who doesn't appear to actually exist. It is one of the most captivating stories I've read. Highly recommended this book. I think @meganlmiranda is my new favorite author. #reader

    Megan Miranda does it again! Just as in All the Missing Girls, I was slow to warm up to the characters in The Perfect Stranger. Much of that is from only getting glimpses into the characters at first and many of those glimpses are not flattering. It's not until you're well into the book that you realize that even though the characters are flawed there are valid reasons for the actions they take. There were a couple of surprises in this book that I didn't anticipate which enhances the suspense.

    Megan Miranda's debut adult novel, All the Missing Girls, was a fantastic read. I couldn't wait to read her latest, just released book - The Perfect Stranger.We meet Leah Stevens in the prologue. She's left her job in the city and moved to a small town to work as a teacher. Not a planned move, but...."(I) could start over. Be the Leah Stevens I had planned to be."The why of her departure from her former life is only revealed slowly, in memories and offhand comments. And what of her roommate, the enigmatic Emmy? They lived together back in Leah's college days and now again by good fortune.And then a woman is killed in that new, quiet small town. And Emmy goes missing.Can I say that Miranda does missing girls really, really well. That first book also had us hunting for a missing girl. Miranda has again come up with a fantastic plot line in which nothing is as it appears - in part one. But in part two the mouse becomes the cat....."Truth and story - doesn't matter which comes first, as long as you get where you need to be at the end. As long as you end at the truth, all's fair."So, who's telling the truth? I could see the danger ahead and found myself wanting to shout at the character to open her eyes and see what was coming! You know, those 'don't go in the basement' moments in a scary movie. She doesn't listen however. Thankfully, because otherwise the reader would be robbed of a heck of a good read. And no psychological thriller should be without that last gotcha ending. The Perfect Stranger ends with a 'just right' one. Another great page-turner from Megan Miranda - this reader will be eagerly awaiting her next book.

    Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book as well as I did Megan Miranda's first book, All The Missing Girls. This book seemed to drag out for me and I lost interest in the final conclusion. Leah, is forced to resign from her reporter job in Boston and moves to a small town to start her life over. She moves with her old friend, Emmy. Emmy steals her identity and we are left to wonder if Emmy really exists! I found myself not engaged in this story or the main characters but will certainly give Megan Miranda another try as I enjoyed her first novel. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    I loved "All the Missing Girls" and could not wait to reading this book. It has been sitting on my TBR pile since the beginning of the year. And, like her other book, this one did not fail to disappoint. This one had me going crazy. I was starting to wonder if there was an Emmy or not. I read the pages, Leah and Emmy had conversations. Were they her dreams or not? This was such a great suspenseful thriller. So many things stacked up against Leah. The author did an excellent job and I absolutely loved the ending.I am definitely looking forward to Megan Miranda's next offering and will hungrily grab it up and make it mine.Thanks to Simon & Schuster and Net Galley for approving and allowing me to read and review this thriller!

    When Leah runs into Emmy, an old friend she hasn't seen in years, it seems perfect timing. Having had to quit her job as a journalist in Boston and with a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit hanging over her, she is grateful for Emmy's invitation to move to rural Pennsylvania with her. But starting anew as a high school teacher isn't that easy in a town that seems full of people looking for a fresh start. Megan Miranda did a great job of creating a host of characters that all seemed to be untrustworthy. When Emmy goes missing, Leah has difficulties convincing people that Emmy actually existed at all.The Perfect Stranger was a decent enough mystery. Maybe I had set my expectations too high because I was mesmerized by Megan Miranda's suspenseful and uniquely told All the Missing Girls last year. The Perfect Stranger dragged a bit in parts. There was a lot going on, plenty of threads to keep straight, but nothing much seemed to be happening and there was no real depth to it. Not sure that makes a lot of sense, but that's how I felt. I also never really warmed up to Leah, and as the entire story was from her perspective, it made it more difficult to become really involved. I was expecting something more from the ending as well. It was anticlimactic.Overall, this was alright, and I would certainly read more books written by Megan Miranda, but this one just felt a bit too safe.I received an ARC via NetGalley.

    The second novel in a mystery series that can be read as a stand-alone. This book includes some eerie settings and characters. I missed the first one, but if it was as suspenseful as this thriller, then I may go back and read it too. It kept me guessing til the end. The plot is interesting and there are plenty of twists throughout, even with how the reader feels about certain characters (it's written in a way that makes you question whether certain ones are what you thought they were in the beginning). A good mystery, especially for fans of the author's YA mysteries and those readers who enjoy NA thrillers. Net Galley Feedback

    I loved All the Missing Girls and The Safest Lies, so I was very excited to get the chance to read The Perfect Stranger. The book was definitely a mystery with a little bit of romance and a ton of creepiness. I'm not sure how Leah managed to live out in the middle of nowhere, with no one around in a house with huge glass doors all by herself. I would have been a big scaredy-cat.Honestly, I did not know how this would end. Every other chapter I suspected someone different was the attacker. I even questioned if Emmy was real.Leah moved to rural Pennsylvania with Emmy, a friend she hasn't seen in eight years. Leah is starting over as a teacher, after her career as a journalist was ruined over an article she wrote. On her way to school, Leah finds out a woman was attacked not too far from her house. The woman has an eerie resemblance to Leah. Naturally, Leah's roommate also goes missing. Some people start to doubt Emmy even existed. It was a very twisty story. The article Leah wrote plays a prominent part in the story line. When Leah investigates the apartment of the woman who was attacked, it's very creep what she discovers and makes you question her missing roommate even more. I really needed to learn about Emmy and discover her real identity. This was an all around great book and I definitely recommend it!!Thanks to NetGalley, Simon & Schuster and the author, Megan Miranda, for a free electronic ARC of this novel.

    It was a great easy read. The ending wasn’t exactly a huge twist but enjoyable nonetheless.
  • (4/5)
    Interested in a fun light story in tradition with the authors other books. If you like her other writing then you won't be disappointed.
  • (4/5)
    It was a great book, but she leaves I've question unanswered.
  • (2/5)
    Protagonist talked way too much, over thought everything, and was basically boring. Book could have been half the length, and still been able to tell the whole story in detail.
  • (5/5)
    Another great story. Twists and turn all the way to the very end. I’m an absolute fan.
  • (4/5)
    Worth the read but definitely drawn out. Still loved it tho
  • (4/5)
    I liked the story although it was a little to follow at times. Interesting without much suspense.
  • (4/5)
    This was pretty good. I was never sure where the story would go next.
  • (4/5)
    I liked it a lot. I got discouraged about a quarter of way through because I was afraid I already knew the ending and that it was very cliche. I didn’t and I found the twists and turns interesting. Also, the theme of new beginnings and starting over. And the discussion of what constitutes the truth and whether truth is relative. I found the ending satisfying.
  • (4/5)
    Easy to follow, interesting story and characters. I enjoyed the narrator.
  • (4/5)
    3.5 stars. Maybe the storylines in Megan Miranda's books aren't very exciting or unique , but her storytelling keeps you sucked in until the very end .
  • (3/5)
    Decent plot...thesaurus needed for author and editor. “I Said” is repeated so many times it became a game of counting its frequency. Wishing the character’s dialogue could have been described more creatively throughout the book.
  • (3/5)
    Tools me a bit to get into this one and focus. It was good though at times confusing if Leah was imagining it or it was really happening. I don't think the romance with Kyle added any thing to the book. Good but not amazing definitely slow in parts.

    I can’t say enough good things about Megan Miranda. I loved this one

    You will not be disappointed. The way the author weaves this story and ends it- it’s perfect.
