THE PERFECT FRAUD – Ellen LaCorte (out now)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one.
My Thoughts: 3/5 stars!
I feel like this book fell victim to inaccurate marketing – like a lot of books seem to be lately. I was anticipating a thriller and this is more of a light mystery read. Which, of course, there’s nothing wrong with but when you’re anticipating a thriller then it can be a little bit of a letdown. That being said, THE PERFECT FRAUD is a great for those looking for a lighter mystery!
I don’t really want to give away too much, but this one was more on the predictable side. Despite knowing how things were going to turn out, it was still a quick read and I did enjoy LaCorte’s writing style. I did like the little bit of supernatural elements that she included in the story for us. I typically enjoy those story lines and seeing how the author will portray the supernatural events. Just know going into this that it won’t be a crazy thriller and I think you’ll enjoy it a lot more!
I would definitely pick up more from LaCorte in the future!
