The Perfect Girlfriend

Hayley Smith

‘Oh. My. God. By far my favorite read of 2023 so far!… Perfect… I finished it in one sitting. I absolutely devoured it.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The night I met Jay changed my life. The sparkle in his eyes and the way he wraps his arms around me so tight takes my breath away. I know one man can’t fix all my problems, but after my best friend Nell died, I lost a part of myself. And now I’m certain Jay’s the start of something new.

So when he asks me to move in, to his cottage in the woods where the healing power of nature is all around, I know it’s the spot to start again. The perfect place to be his perfect girlfriend.

But it’s nothing like I’d imagined. It’s completely isolated, miles from anywhere. There’s no internet, no phone signal, and no neighbors. Warm in Jay’s arms at night, I can convince myself that I’m safe and sound. And really, I know I am.

Because being here means that no one can find me.

So it’s okay if Jay is keeping secrets from me, if there are hints of women before me in the cottage that he refuses to acknowledge. Because I’m hiding too. And all I can do is pray he’ll never discover just how imperfect I really am… or at least, not until I want him to. I’ve been so careful, haven’t I?

A completely addictive psychological thriller packed with incredible twists you won’t see coming. Perfect for fans of The Housemaid, The Split, and The Serial Killer’s Wife.
