#FuturisticFriday Review: The Perfect StrangerTitle: The Perfect Stranger
Author: Megan Miranda

Rating: four-stars

Summary: This suspenseful, well-written, unique and twisty thriller was an awesome read.

With her journalism career in ruins, Leah Stevens is ready to for a fresh start when she runs into her old roommate, Emmy Grey. The two of them quickly agree to move somewhere new to start over together. Shortly after their move, when a women who looks like Leah is attacked and Emmy disappears, Leah realizes she might never have known who Emmy was at all. In fact, she is unable to prove to the police that Emmy even exists and soon becomes a suspect herself.

This was such a fun, well-written story! As in All the Missing Girls, Megan Miranda brought the scenery and the characters vividly to life. I found it suspenseful throughout and couldn’t put it down. It was slightly less unique and surprising than her previous book, where the story proceeded backwards in time, but it did still feel different from anything else I’ve read. There were a few twists I saw coming before the main character did, but there were also twists that surprised me as late as the last chapter. Even if it wasn’t quite as perfect as All the Missing Girls, it definitely wasn’t a letdown. I’d recommend it to fans of the author’s previous thriller and to everyone else.

    I LOVE psychological warfare mysteries so this is right up my alley. Plus, I haven’t read Miranda before so now I have two great escapes to add to my list. Thank you!

      If the reversed order of the story was the main thing you didn’t like, I definitely think you’d like this one better. Other than not feeling as unique to me because this story was told in a more traditional way, I thought it was just as good as her first thriller 🙂
