Her Perfect Life, by Emily Shiner

Her Perfect Life book cover

Millie is released from prison after being framed for a murder by her own twin sister Eve. She is ready to forgive Eve and hopes to rebuild their relationship. But Eve rejects her so Millie becomes intent on taking her sister’s perfect life away…
Her Perfect Life is a psychological thriller that was absolutely gripping but pushed the boundaries of credulity.
Millie has our sympathy at the start as she has been convicted of a crime she didn’t commit. She knows it was really her twin that was responsible and now is out for revenge. At this point my support evaporated a bit due to Millie’s actions. She quickly learns that Eve doesn’t have the perfect life that Millie imagines. She is being blackmailed by Gareth and Mya, forced to run errands for them, and now Millie is in their clutches instead.
Millie feels imprisoned again and begins to plan ways to escape. Multiple first person perspectives are used to show the plot developments. The majority of the book is from Millie’s viewpoint and she seems like a good person that has been twisted by circumstances. Gareth and Mya are selfish and this makes us hope even more that Millie will escape them.
There is the added problem of Eve’s cop boyfriend and Millie struggles to maintain the pretence that she is her twin. The tension builds and I was fully on her side again even though she isn’t an innocent victim. The ending was wickedly clever and left me satisfied with the outcomes for the characters.
Her Perfect Life is thoroughly entertaining so suspend your disbelief and enjoy!
I have previously reviewed The Secret Wife and The Caretaker by Emily Shiner.
