Perfect Lie by Claire Sheldon / #Review @RubyFiction @ClaireEESheldon

What is ‘perfect’ trying to hide?
Jen Garner tries her best to be ‘wife and mother of the year’. She helps organise school plays and accompanies her husband to company dinners, all with a big smile on her face.
But Jen has started to receive strange gifts in the post … first flowers, then a sympathy card.
It could just be a joke; that’s what she tells herself. But then the final ‘gift’ arrives, and Jen has to question why somebody is so intent on shattering her life into pieces …




This was a debut to be proud of. 

The author really manages to keep your attention and to guide you through the murky depths of the story until finally the big fish is captured.

Sometimes when you love them, you have to leave them to protect them even if it’s the hardest thing you ever had to do. You can only hope, when everything is solved, that they understand why and are ready to embrace you again.

This book was just great! I enjoyed everything about it. 

The author showed that she is here to stay and I would not mind a series with DI Jackson and his team. You never know. Sometimes wishes are granted. 🙂 5 stars.

Thank you, Claire Sheldon and Ruby Fiction


About the author

Claire lives in Nottingham with her family, a cat called Whiskers and a dog called Podrick.

She suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and as a result of the disease had to reduce her hours working in insurance for an Insolvency Insurer. This spare time enabled her to study a creative writing course which inspired her to write her debut, Perfect Lie.

When Claire isn’t working she enjoys reading crime novels and listening to music – the band Jimmy Eat World is her biggest muse! Claire is also an avid reader and book blogger. The inspiration for her novels comes from the hours spent watching The Bill with her grandparents and auntie; then later, Spooks and other detective programmes like Inspector Morse, A Touch of Frost and Midsomer Murders.
