Goodreads:  Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew--and that person is dead.

Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day even if the shocking truth might destroy her.

Kritters Thoughts:  Two storylines make this book - one is Catherine Ravenscroft who finds a book that sends her life in a tail spin and the other storyline is a relation to the author of the book that affects her life.  

At the beginning, I was nervous as I had no idea how these two stories would connect and with what I told you above, I was still confused.  But the minute they started intersecting the book just took off from there.  The stories weaved in and out and from the past to the present as a major catalyst for this story occurred 20 years ago.  There were twists and turns and ups and downs to the very end and the last one threw me for a loop - a good loop!  

I don't always talk about "themes" on this blog, but something really stood out for me in this book - your truth or version of the truth may not be someone else's.  There are two sides of the story and if you aren't there when the story occurs - then you aren't even one of the two sides and I just loved how this played into this story.

I would definitely categorize this book in the suspense genre and be warned that this book is hard to set down from the beginning to the end.  I had the luxury of memorial day weekend to completely sit and take in this book in two sittings!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from TLC Book Tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
