Book Review - Imperfect Women by Araminta Hall

Imperfect Women

Imperfect Women by Araminta Hall
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Firstly I want to thank Netgalley, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and Araminta Hall for providing me this copy in exchange for my honest review. @fsgbooks

Synopsis: When Nancy Hennessy is murdered, she leaves behind two best friends, an adoring husband and daughter, and a secret lover whose identity she took to the grave. Nancy was gorgeous, wealthy, and cherished by those who knew her—from the outside, her life was perfect. But as the investigation into her death flounders and her friends Eleanor and Mary wrestle with their grief, dark details surface that reveal how little they knew their friend, each other, and maybe even themselves.

A gripping, immersive novel about impossible expectations and secrets that fester and become lethal, Imperfect Women unfolds through the perspectives of three fascinating women. Their enduring, complex friendship is the knot the reader must untangle to answer the question Who killed Nancy?


My Thoughts: I really enjoyed the story for the most part though I wouldn't classify it as a thriller because I found nothing thrilling about it...I actually would lean more towards a dramatic soap opera with all the lies, secrets, and deceitfulness they portray.

The characters were human in that we all have flaws and are not perfect and I related to that side of them but still there were the times I wanted to give them a smack or shake and wake them up. I had no real deep feelings towards any of them.

I guess what I'm trying to say is although I enjoyed reading Imperfect Women I felt more like I was watching a mindless television show play out before me where I already knew what was going to happen and who did what and to whom.
