Description

HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO BE SOMEONE ELSE?

Vanessa has always found it easy to pretend to be somebody different, somebody better. When things get tough in her real life, all she has to do is throw on some nicer clothes, adopt a new accent and she can escape.

That's how it started: looking round houses she couldn't possibly afford. Harmless fun really. Until it wasn't.

Because a man who lived in one of those houses is dead.

And everyone thinks Vanessa killed him...

‘I completely bought into the idea of a broken woman trying to make herself feel better by viewing houses she can’t afford. It’s a brilliant concept. Nuala weaves in dark themes with the perfect light touch’ Emma Curtis

‘THE PERFECT LIFE is totally enthralling. It's simultaneously a love letter to the stories that shaped our childhoods and a creepy, compulsive thriller, with a twist you won't see coming. Very highly recommended’ Simon Lelic

‘Wow this book!! I couldn’t stop reading until I turned the last page. What a brilliant thriller. SO grippy and twisty, totally addictive and clever. Loved it’ Claire Douglas
