Pretty Revenge by Emily Liebert
HBL Note: This book is being compared to The Wife Between Us and The Perfect Nanny, so if you read and enjoyed either of those this book is for you! I think we’ve all had fantasies, at some point in our lives, of seeking revenge (or getting a form of karmic justice) for those who’ve wronged us. Kerrie sees the woman who ruined her life (Jordana) on tv - seemingly living a happy and successful life - and Kerrie is not happy. Meanwhile, although she appears to have the perfect life, Jordana is hiding some deep secrets that only Kerrie can reveal. This sounds like it is going to be quite the page-turner. A perfect book if you just want to get lost in a novel and melt the real-life stress away.
From the publisher:
Kerrie O’Malley, jobless and in an unfulfilling relationship, can isolate the singular moment in her life when things veered off course—the night she was irrevocably wronged by someone she looked up to. Eighteen years later, when Kerrie sees the very woman who destroyed her life on television, a fire ignites inside her. The stakes are high. The risks are perilous. But she’ll stop at nothing to achieve the retribution she deserves.
Jordana Pierson is a gilded New Yorker who appears to have it all: wealth, glamour, a successful and handsome husband, and a thriving wedding concierge business. Her record is spotless. Her business is flourishing. No one knows the truth about her and the dark shadows of her past.
No one, that is, except Kerrie.
Exploring just how far someone will go for vengeance, Pretty Revenge is a riveting, compulsively readable novel bursting with twists and turns and plenty of suspense.
