The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Failed journalist Leah Stevens abruptly leaves Boston after a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit after writing a dubious story. She moves to rural Pennsylvania with an old friend, Emmy Grey, but their new start is threatened when a woman who looks a lot like Leah is assaulted, and Emmy disappears days later.
This is a fantastic mystery with well-drawn characters and a twisty plot. While the protagonist, Leah, wasn’t exactly likeable (she was a bit sullen and secretive), I still found her believable and was intrigued by the story. I’ll definitely look for Megan Miranda’s other books.
