Spotlight and Giveaway: Perfectly Famous

Today we are celebrating the publication of Emily Liebert's latest novel, Perfectly Famous! Melissa A gave it five stars. Check out her review. Thanks to Kathleen Carter Communications, we have one copy to give away!

Ward DeFleur has it all. She lives on a magnificent estate in idyllic Connecticut, along with her teenage daughter, Stevie, where nothing can go wrong. Until, one night, when Stevie is brutally murdered and Ward’s entire world is shattered.

Bree Bennett is a recently-divorced, former-journalist-cum-housewife, desperate to fill her days. What begins as her effort to write about Ward’s tragic story for the town newspaper turns into an unhealthy obsession with seeking her out. Unfortunately, Ward does not want to be discovered.

Even worse, Stevie’s killer is still on the loose…

In alternating perspectives between Ward and Bree, PERFECTLY FAMOUS is a pulse-racing tale brimming with explosive secrets.


“What a fun, engrossing read! Emily Liebert has such a gift for creating relatable characters who find themselves tangled up in something sinister. The ending of this book packs a huge surprise you won't see coming!”
– Sarah Pekkanen, New York Times bestselling author of You Are Not Alone

Perfectly Famous is a killer summer read! When a back-to-work journalist investigates the sudden disappearance of a famous author, suspects emerge from every corner of both women’s lives. Spot-on characters and clever plotting drive this latest thriller by Emily Liebert to a deliciously unexpected ending!”
– Wendy Walker, internationally bestselling author of The Night Before

“A twisty game of cat and mouse with a shocker of an ending. Gripping and entertaining.”
– Michele Campbell, international bestselling author of A Stranger on the Beach
