|The Perfect Stranger|
by Wendy Corsi Staub
$6.99 Kindle version
I wasn't sure who the killer was and I was even less certain about the motive. The mystery kept me interested, but there were far too many slow moments to call this a thriller. However, the group of women are something else: distinct characters, well-developed personalities and easy to match up to their online personas, introduced to us through occasional blog entries between chapters. I thought the multiple POVs were a great way to keep the storyline going, but the changes were a little haphazard at times.
I've been told this is not Staub's best work, but I thought it stood out from many other mystery novels, and I liked the real-life drama in this fictional setting. If you're looking for something different, it's not a bad way to pass a few hours.
