Today is my stop on the book tour for this book. Thank you to Penguin Michael Joseph for a free advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Brilliantly written and deftly plotted, The Perfect Escape is an absolute page-turner led by likeable characters with an intricate story and plenty of exciting twists.

I really enjoyed the main group of females and found Sam and Margaret’s situations very compelling, so I found myself really engaged in the story early on. As the group are then stranded halfway through their journey, I got a real sense of the atmosphere in their apartment and the feel of the town, feeling like I had to check behind my shoulder around every corner.

With short chapters and lots of cliffhangers, I flew through this book as I couldn’t wait to find out the answers. There are a lot of great twists, most of which I didn’t see coming, and I was constantly excited to see what would happen next.

If you’re a fan of thrillers with lots of energy, mystery and exciting twists, then this is definitely a book that you need to pick up!
