Lisa Scottoline could do no wrong:) this is another.. stay up all night just to finish the book as you can't help but want to know what's going on. The characters are well described and likeable and the plotline takes you on a rollercoaster, one thing that lisa always gets right is no matter how unbelievable some of the tricks it makes the perfect story.

‘One Perfect Lie’ is a novel full of action and excitement. It starts when Chris Brennan applies for a teaching job at Central Valley High School. Straight away you know that he is not who he seems to be. He is playing a part like the seasoned actor he is and the only thing you actually don’t know is why he is deceiving everyone, which adds to the intrigue and mystery of the story.
Of course he is handsome and charming. He has everybody fooled with his suave chat lines and knowledgeable answers to their questions, once safely installed as a teacher in the school. He is helpful, talented and very friendly. He is very good with his pupils and a willing support to Coach Hardwick as assistant baseball coach. All of the check-ups have endorsed him and he is above suspicion. But we the reader know that his life is a charade and that he is playing the game until the very end.
One of his pupils who is also a member of the baseball team is Jordan, who lives with his mother Heather. He is a talented player who is hoping that he will get through to college on the back of his good conduct, academic record and talent for sport. Immediately Chris identifies Jordan as the perfect candidate to help him with his plans and he befriends him. He is seeking out information from Jordan, playing towards the end game, manipulating him and situations that may play in his favour. ‘Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive’ – and this is only the very beginning of the novel, not the substance of it.
I really enjoyed reading this novel. It gripped me from the very beginning and I was totally unprepared for what the truth would hold as it was gradually revealed. There were thrills and spills, crimes and deceptions and more than one red herring.

One Perfect Lie is a gripping, perfectly paced and cleverly written thriller. I loved every page of this captivating book. 

A suspected terrorist bombing was about to go down in Pennsylvania. And, ATF Special Agent Curt Abbot knew that he had only a week to prevent it. His gut was telling him that Central Valley High School was involved and playing a key role in the attack.

Everyone fell in love with, Chris Brennan, the new assistant coach, and teacher at Central Valley High School. He was handsome, charismatic, and knew just how to spin a tale to make everyone believe his lies. Chris studied people so he could manipulate and exploit them easily. To Chris, people were just a means to an end. That was, until, he met the good folks, in his new small Pennsylvania town. Unlike him, they were genuine. He hated deceiving them, especially, Jordan, one of his students, and Heather, the kid’s single mom. Chris had always been a loner. But for the first time in his life, he wanted more. He wanted Heather, her son, and a normal life. Chris didn’t want to see their faces, though, when they discovered what he had done and just how he had betrayed them. What a terrible time for him to grow a conscience.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading One Perfect Lie and highly recommend giving it a read.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

This was an exciting thriller with lots of twists and once I started reading it I just couldn't put it down.
Chris Brennan is the new teacher at a high school; as well as teaching Government he is also the baseball team coach. However all is not as it seems and right from his job interview to the first classes he teaches and his first attempt at coaching it is clear to the reader that Chris has something planned and it certainly isn't teaching students. Why has he inserted himself inro this high school and what is he plotting.? As the novel moved along it sent a chill down my spine. Chris has a hidden agenda and I could not work out what was on it. He seemed very cold and calculating and I found it difficult to feel any sympathy for him.
I cannot reveal too much of the plot as this will spoil the novel. The characterisations were great and the reader learnt a lot about the teenage protagonists as well as their parents. Each student had a back story and difficult family situations which I found just as interesting as other aspects of the plot.
My only diffuculty with the story were the sections that were about baseball as I am an English reader who knows little about this sport!
This is a fast moving roller coaster of a read and I would recommend it to all thriller fans who enjoy sharp and clever plots. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

In her latest offering, ONE PERFECT LIE, Lisa Scottoline juggles a large cast of characters deftly and doles out clues to what is really going on in a measured and judicious manner. More important, she recognizes the complexity of the town of Central Valley and its residents.

In previous books she has demonstrated her skill at creating strong characters as well as building drama and conflict but in this particular instance she has outdone herself. This review will be sort of generic since to present too much of the story involving a good looking midyear replacement teacher named Chris Brennan and the threat of home grown domestic terrorism would ruin the abundant surprises in store for potential readers.

There is more than one lie being perpetrated in this tale of small town America and most of the characters are not who they appear to be at first glance.

If this book does anything it really gets the reader thinking about their own town, their own friends and family and leads us to question how much we truly know about anyone.
