One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline

Recently Added-142

This is one of those books that I had to hang and I quit it once but came back to it and I’m glad that I did. One Perfect Lie is not about golf it is about a small town in mid America and this town is riddled with lies. The kids lie to the parents, the parents lie to each other and to themselves. The kids live almost parallel lives to the parents who are clueless about is going on.

Into this comes a stranger, a stranger with his own agenda and lies of his own and to make things worse he is going to teach at the local high school and help coach the championship baseball team. He has come with a cover story and has done his research using facebook, twitter, instagram, and snapchat on the kids and their parents. He has a list of those who are vulnerable and he sets to work to exploit those vulnerabilities.

So I was like ewwww!! and about plugged and abandoned this novel but I came back to it and I’m glad I did. Lisa Scottoline does a great job setting up this whodoneit and then peeling away the various layers to the truth below. That’s all I’m going to say without giving away the story.

I’m glad that I stayed with this book, it turned out to be a great read.

    Glad to know this one was worth the effort. I haven’t read L. Scottoline, but I did hear her speak at a book conference and liked her style. She had some interesting insights about sometimes being marketed as “chick lit” and how that has affected attracting a larger male readership. That said, Cindy and I are working on our opening day inventory for Magic City and we want to get a focus group of avid male readers together to hear what they would like to see as part of our offerings – titles and authors. You are one of the most avid readers I know, so would you be interested in being part of the group? We are looking at meeting near the end of this month or early in August. Details to come. Let me know what you think.
