Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.
They are meant to be.
The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.
True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…
Slow burning, guileful, and chilling!
The Perfect Girlfriend is a complex, compelling, psychological thriller that takes you into the life of the determined, consumed Juliette as she embarks on a relentless journey to win back the heart of her ex-boyfriend at any cost.
The prose is tight and intense. The characters are self-absorbed, crafty, and deliciously unlikable. And the plot, using flashbacks to the past and told through a first-person, unreliable narrator, builds steadily and is full of unforeseen twists, well-timed surprises, mind games, fixation, vengeance, cunning manipulation, and life in the airlines.
Overall, The Perfect Girlfriend is a unique, sharp, disturbingly addictive tale that is a fantastic debut for Hamilton and a scary reminder just how quickly life can spiral out of control when driven by obsession and revenge.
