Susannah, a young widow and single mother, has remarried well: to Max, a charismatic artist and popular speaker whose career took her and her fifteen-year-old son out of New York City and to a quiet Vermont university town. Strong-willed and attractive, Susannah expects that her life is perfectly in place again. Then one quiet morning she finds a note on her door: I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
Max dismisses the note as a prank. But days after a neighborhood couple comes to dinner, the husband mysteriously dies in a tragic accident while on a run with Max. Soon thereafter, a second note appears on their door: DID YOU GET AWAY WITH IT?
Both Susannah and Max are keeping secrets from the world and from each other —secrets that could destroy their family and everything they have built.

I know that at times you need to distance a novel from reality, but The Perfect Liar seems so far from reality that it was hard to imagine Susannah and Max as a normal couple. They had so many secrets from each other and when one of them would call the other one out, they just told more lies. It was hard to be on one of their sides because it was so over the top.
I did love all of the secrets though. And boy was there so many of them. It was hard to tell at times who was the perfect liar. I also didn’t see the ending coming at all! Talk about jaw dropping!
3 calculators out of a potential 5. If you are a reader that can suspend belief then I think you will really enjoy this novel!
