I don't want to give away too much about the plot of the book since there are several surprise twists.
Chris Brennan seems perfect, maybe a little too perfect. He is applying for a job to teach high school government class and substitute coach the baseball team. However his motives seem suspicious.
Three of Chris's prospective students, Raz, Jordan and Evan, along with their mothers, each have their own troubles. All three boys are members of the baseball team, but the similarities end there. Jordan is very quiet and withdrawn; Evan is the typical spoiled rich kid and Raz has temper issues and just doesn't quite fit in. Each of their mothers are also dealing with problems of their own.
At the center of all of this is Chris Brennan. What has drawn him to this town and school? What is he planning and who will get hurt in the process?
One Perfect Lie is another fast page turning read by Lisa Scottoline. I was completely blindsided by some of the plot twists in this novel and I love when an author surprises me like that. I would be interested to see if any other novels explore some of the same characters from this book. I think I'd like to read more about them and it seems like there is definitely material for another book. One Perfect Lie would also make for an interesting book club discussion.
I received this book courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
