TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “THREE PERFECT LIARS”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by  Socrates Book Reviews; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is a new book entitled Three Perfect Liars, by Heidi Perks.

***

Intro:  Monday, May 13 – the night of the fire

It had taken seven minutes for the first of the fire engines to screech to a halt outside the offices of Morris and Wood, but even by then anyone could have seen it was too late.  The fire had coursed through the building at an alarming rate.  Red and orange flames were already obscured by a billowing cloud of dark gray smoke.  The sound of breaking glass shattered the air.

Teaser:  Mia could feel the bite on Laura’s tongue and the sneer in her voice.  So that was the game she was going to play.  Make out Mia didn’t deserve to be in this role, as if she hadn’t been putting everything into it over the last six months, proving her worth. (p. 61).

***

Synopsis:Laura has returned to work at Morris and Wood after her maternity leave, only to discover that the woman she brought in to cover for her isn’t planning on going anywhere. Despite her close relationship with the agency’s powerful CEO, Harry Wood, she feels sidelined—and outmaneuvered—as she struggles to balance the twin demands of work and motherhood.

Mia was only supposed to be a temporary hire at Morris and Wood, but she’s managed to make herself indispensable to everyone. Everyone, that is, except Laura. If people only knew why she was so desperate to keep her job, they might not want her to stay.

Janie gave up everything to support her husband and the successful agency he runs. But she has her own dark secret to protect…and will go to any lengths to keep it safe.

What do you think?  Do the excerpts and blurb tempt you to keep reading?

  1. Hi Lorraine,

    This one sounds right up my street. The opening lines on their own would have had me reaching for the ‘Want To Read’ button, but the premise just about clinched it!

    Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy it in the same way that the other thousand or so people who have read it did 🙂

    Have a lovely week and stay safe 🙂

    Yvonne xx
