Today at #AKnightsReads airport, I’m very excited to welcome the arrival of The Perfect Girfriend on its Around The Bloggerverse Trip. Huge thanks to Anne Cater of Random Things Tours and Becky Hunter at Headline Press for inviting me on board and for my copy of The Perfect Girlfriend.
A frightening depiction of unbridled obsession, where love and pure hatred grapple on a knife edge.
Juliette loves Nate. The fact that he’s broken up with her doesn’t change that.
She has a plan to win him back, starting with training as a flight attendant for the airline where he works as a pilot, so she can keep a closer eye on him. Twisting the self-help books she’s read, she takes the mantra ‘in charge of your own destiny’ to new extremes.
She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants – the perfect boyfriend, the perfect life, the perfect ending.
An utterly compelling voice that hooks you into Juliette’s world, a unique insight into the face behind the air hostess uniform from an author with first hand experience, and ultimately a completely page-turning experience make THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND one to watch in 2018.
What Did I Think?
OMG Juliette is a fruitcake!!!! Totally an utterly lost the plot!!!!! She’s potty and dangerous with it!!
She is not someone I would want to be friends with, I’d be scared what she’d do if I was (god forbid) happy!!!! Just imagine working with someone like that!!! She believes she should be the only person in the world to be happy and the only way she can be happy is in the arms of Nate who doesn’t want the intense relationship that Juliette has to offer. Throughout the book, you see the lengths she is prepared to go to, to get exactly what she wants. But all of this makes her the perfect candidate for our lead character!!
I really could not put this book down, reading until my eyelids were drooping in the evening. I was totally addicted to this fast paced tale, desperate to find out what Juliette will do next. This is a fantastic debut, Karen Hamilton has written a perfectly crafted psychological thriller with a totally unreliable narrator. If this book is anything to go by, Karen Hamilton is going to become a firm favourite in my reading sphere.

This led her to a career as a flight attendant, and it was in the air that she thought of the idea for her debut thriller THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND, which aims to explore not only obsession, but also the true faces behind those who go to work in uniform.
