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.

Review: Three Perfect Liars by Heidi Perks
This book starts off at the scene of the crime and then winds its way back to how it all began. The concept is intriguing and the snippets from the detective’s interviews add an interesting element to the story. At times it seems obvious which woman is responsible for the fire. However, the story yanks you down a new path just as you start to piece things together.
❀ Flawed Main Characters
Each of the main characters is flawed and very relatable. Not one of them is all that likeable, yet their life choices are defining and it is enjoyable to read each of their perspectives. Laura is a new mom trying to make her way back into her career, while Mia is just starting out. Janie, on the other hand, is a successful attorney taking a step back to be at home with her kids. I really appreciated how the author was able to present these women with different backgrounds and show the importance of supporting women and their life choices.
❀ A Twisty Thriller that keeps you hooked
If you enjoy a twisty thriller that keeps you hooked, Three Perfect Liars by Heidi Perks is one to try. The concept is exciting and the characters are intriguing. I am looking forward to what this author has in store for us next.
