About the Book:
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.

While she was bringing a child into the world, another woman had slipped into her place and stolen her job from her.

It's been a couple years since I've read a Heidi Perks book . This one is a psychological tale about motherhood, ambition and female rivalry. This book was an nice surprise and I inhaled it in one sitting. The book is broken down into a countdown to the fire with police interviews after each section. I know this may seem complicated but Heidi Perks manages to do it coherently. It was quite expertly rendered, as I was never confused about the characters or timeline. In fact, the characters were beautifully fleshed out, their actions and desires ultimately making all three quite sympathetic.

What really made me love this book are the questions that this story asks, especially about secrets, lies and motivations. It's the type of book you want to read with someone else and then discuss and I really enjoyed that about Three Perfect Liars. I wasn't expecting that sort of book and it was a pleasant surprise. I'm still thinking about Laura, Mia and Janie's actions. To me, that's the sign of a good book.

Thank you NetGalley, Heidi Perks and Gallery Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
