The Perfect Affair is a book that will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat for the whole book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this and was not expecting any of the different scenarios that were presented at the end.

The characters are easy to engage with and I felt myself really drawn into the story.

I read this in one sitting and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone interested in thrillers.

Thank you to NetGalley and Storm Publishing for the eARC of this book.

Thank you to NetGalley and Storm Publishing for this eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

This was one hell of a thriller! This is a dual POV with some flashback scenes, and is told via a husband and wife. There is murder (obviously), mental health issues, illness of a parent, and adultery. So much adultery!!! I was honestly kept guessing the entire time, as Angela Henry wove a masterful web in this novel. Some aspects, I was able to figure out, and others, there was no way I was even close. Just when you think everything has finally come together, and every secret has been revealed...just keep reading, because there's more. If you're a thriller fan in any capacity, I would recommend grabbing this one immediately.

3.5⭐This book is a psychological thriller that had me hooked in the beginning. However, the middle part became a little too crazy for my liking. At times, I wanted it to end, but it eventually got interesting again, especially towards the end. The story is well-written and will keep you guessing until the end. Even though I found the identity of the villain to be unrealistic, the book contains a lot of good scenes, including suspense, mystery, family drama, and mental illness. Despite its flaws, it is still a decent read for those who love a good thriller suspense story.

Thank you, NetGalley and Storm Publishing for providing me with the eARC. All opinions are my own.

Every time I thought I figured out whodunnit, I was wrong. The Perfect Affair had the perfect ending because it came out of the blue. It may have been a little far fetched, but it certainly had me on the edge of my seat.

I don’t want to give anything away, but I will recommend this book to anyone who loves a good thriller. It’s addicting and engaging. Three stars from me.

This was, without a doubt, a twisted psychological thriller. It certainly had me gripped from the start, it was well written, flowed well and i was eager to read it within 2 days. There were lots of characters, all connected in some way, and everyone had their secrets which added to the final conclusion. At one point i was a bit confused who did what and to whom!! Overall it was a good story with an ending I certainly didn’t see coming. It was my first book by this author and i would definitely read more.

Thanks to Storm Publishing and NetGalley for allowing me an advanced copy to read in exchange for my open and honest review. As always, my reviews will also be posted on Amazon, Goodreads and Waterstones and interaction on Facebook and instagram where possible.

Who are you to believe? What is going on? Those were some of the questions I asked myself when reading The Perfect Affair by Angela Henry.

The first part of the book held my interest, but then I got lost in the middle and toward the end. I was ready for the story to be over, and it felt a bit cliche, and the trope has been done before.

Overall, The Perfect Affair was just an okay read for me.

Overall I did like this book. It did grab my attention but it didn't always manage to keep it unfortunately.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt like the story really drew me in and kept me wanting to find out what was going to happen. Some of the plot twists were not super realistic, but I really like that type of storyline, so I found the twists to be exciting and interesting. All in all, this was a good read, and I will definitely look for more from this author.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC copy of this book. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I quite enjoyed the first one-third of the book. It felt logical, like it could happen. The middle third started to turn a little crazy, more unrealistic, and by the final third, I just wanted the story to be over. It felt forced, contrived, and out of the realm of possibility. If I could make a suggestion to the author -- don't try to do too much. There is potential here, but I feel the potential got overwhelmed by the desire to over-tell a story.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher and NetGalley, and my review is being given freely.
