The Perfect Liar - by Beverley Harvey

 *Books-on-Tour Review*

A holiday romance with a twistedly exciting turn of events! 

Susanne, Dale, and Evie are due for a much-needed vacation, a leave of absence from their everyday lives. Luckily for them, a neighbor has the perfect villa available in Tuscany free of charge - the only catch, they've been asked to keep an eye on her twenty-four-year-old godson, Harry. It seems like a small price to pay for the perfect holiday getaway... or is it? 

The book blurb does a fine job depicting "The Perfect Liar"; it surely piqued my interest. Let's not forget that jaw-dropper of an ending! I very much enjoyed reading through as it all unfolded. While it took me a minute to really get into this story and parts of it were predictable, it was certainly worth the read for that twist at the end and the immaculate descriptions held within. The scenery of Tuscany was wonderfully detailed, as was the delicious-sounding foods. I'd have loved to have holidayed at that villa with (just) my family! Harvey's carefully crafted friendships, woven deceits amongst various characters, as well as the narrative told from multiple viewpoints, both past and present, were quite fascinating! 

I'd recommend this read to anyone interested in suspensefully slow-build with a satisfying pay-off! Many thanks to NetGalley, the author Beverley Harvey, and the publishers at Bookouture for my advanced copy of this ebook and my spot on this Books-On-Tour event! I have honestly and voluntarily reviewed this title.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Book Blurb:

‘Are you sure he’s someone you can trust? We know nothing at all about him. Who is he, really?’


Susanne and her two best friends have been dreaming of a holiday. All of them need an escape. Especially Susanne, who is reeling from the news that her ex is getting remarried. They need the warm Tuscan sun, delicious Italian food and wine, and – most of all – the time to unwind with each other. What they get is Harry.


Handsome, charming, and great company, Harry soon sweeps Susanne off her feet for a holiday fling. And why not? Except that everything he’s told them is a lie.


Who is the man they’ve let into their house – who Susanne has let into her bed? They have no idea what Harry is capable of – what he’s done to get this far, and what he’s prepared to do to ensure he gets his way.


By the time they find out, it will be too late to stop their dream holiday becoming a nightmare.


An utterly addictive, page-turning thriller with a jaw-dropping twist. If you loved The GirlfriendThe Holiday and Something in the Water, you’ll be completely gripped by The Perfect Liar.

About the author, Beverley Harvey:

Throughout Beverley’s many years spent working in advertising and PR, she had always wanted to write fiction. In 2015 a creative writing course inspired her debut novel, Seeking Eden, which was published in 2017. The sequel, Eden Interrupted, soon followed. Beverley’s third novel – her first with Bookouture – fulfils a long-time goal to publish a psychological thriller.

Born in Yorkshire, and raised in Kent, Beverley currently lives in West Sussex with her partner and their adorable terrier. When not writing, you’ll find her reading, walking the dog or listening to rock music.
