I enjoyed the author's writing in this book and also her characters - I could fully imagine the location and setting and the various neighbours. However, the plot was absent and I kept waiting for something to happen to heighten the suspense. When I ...more

The Perfect Lie by Karen Osman
"No joke, The Perfect Lie is the perfect thriller read. From the go, I was sucked into the life and family of Claire Carmichael. The prologue gives a slight hint at what's to come, but the plot unfolds at a pace that builds towards an aha moment I..." Read more of this review »

Karen Osman liked an answer about The Good Mother:
The Good Mother by Karen Osman
