Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew--and that person is dead.

Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day even if the shocking truth might destroy her.

I was so intrigued by the premise for Disclaimer! I love reading books about books, and this sounded like such a tantalizing mystery.

I couldn’t put this book down. It’s kind of a slow burn, but I could feel the story building up to something, and I really wanted to find out where it all was going.

I finished the book on the bus to work and initially rated it as a 3.5 on Goodreads. I tore through the book, I liked the story, didn’t totally feel satisfied with aspects of the ending. However, I found myself thinking about the book – about Catherine – all day. Disclaimer stirred up a strong emotional response in me, although I didn’t realize it right away. It made me change my rating from 3.5 to 4 stars.

I can’t get into the plot without fear of spoiling anything, so I’ll just say that this book is really good. I’d love to discuss with someone else who has read it! Recommended!

    This was definitely a twisty read, but it felt like too many twists just for the sake of being twisty to me!
