Title: Her Pretty Face
Author: Robyn Harding
Publication Date: 2018
Frances and her son Marcus are new to the prestigious private school in town and Frances is hoping it is just what Marcus needs. But soon after his arrival at his new school a disturbing incident with a fellow student leaves both mother and son ostracized. That is until they meet Kate and her son Charles.
Kate has everything Frances desires and for reasons Frances does not understand Kate befriends her and helps her with the horrible mothers at school. Best of all Marcus and Charles become best friends. Just as things seem to be turning around for Frances and Marcus a terrible secret surfaces revealing that one of these women is not who they seem.
Her Pretty Face is a domestic thriller in the vane as Liane Moriarty’s Little Big Lies. It too is told with a dual timeline, one in present time and the other slowly revealing the past secret of one of the women. Additionally, the story is also told through the eyes of several different characters to give a well rounded view of the story.
All that being said I found the story to be an average thriller. The story was fairly predicable and there was really no reveal at the end. I will say that I did enjoy the story itself as it was a dark and twisted one.
