Read The Perfect Stranger Online Free - In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls, a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.
Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.
Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.
Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?

Like so many other readers, I was completely mesmerized by Megan Miranda’s story told in reverse, All the Missing Girls. So imagine my excitement at the mere thought of a follow-up, let alone actually holding it in my hands.

I'm between 3.5 and 4 stars here.
Sometimes I think we put unfair pressure on authors. Let's say an author writes a book that blows you away. You eagerly anticipate their next book, sometimes you get impatient if it takes them too long to write another one, and then when you get the chance to read...

Last year I was blown away by Miranda’s adult fiction debut All the Missing Girls. The story being told in reverse, the memorable characters, the building suspense that caused me to hold my breath until the gut wrenching conclusion were all reasons it was one of my top reads of 2016. I s...

Suspenseful psychological thriller with a lackluster ending.
Pushed out of her reporter job because she goes too far with an investigation, Leah Stevens flees Boston to Western, PA with her former roommate, Emmy, to start a new life. After a woman, who happens to look a lot like Leah, is...

4 stars! This was a suspenseful, thrilling read!
I had my doubts when starting this book firstly because I really loved the author, Megan Miranda’s, previous novel “All The Missing Girls”. I was hoping to love this as much or more but thought it might be hard to top. My doubts also stemmed from th...

Lots of mixed reviews for this one, and I can see why. Parts of this book I enjoyed, but there were also sections that just didn’t work for me. I had high hopes, but it just didn’t live up to my expectations.
Leah was a dogged journalist determined to get to the truth no matter the cost. Looking...

Add me to the list of those who loved All the Missing Girls. So, it was with excitement and trepidation that I picked up The Perfect Stranger, Miranda’s sophomore effort.
She doesn't disappoint. While not as amazing as ATMG, it's an engrossing read. Since I finished this on baseball’s opening day...
