Hi everyone and welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Perfect Family.

Happy Publication Day to The Perfect Family by Shalini Boland! Thank you to Kim at Bookouture for inviting me to be a part of this book’s Blog Tour!



‘Mummy, she’s gone…’

Gemma Ballantine is getting ready for work one morning when her eldest child comes running down the stairs, saying the words every mother dreads.

The front door is open. And her six-year-old daughter has disappeared. Frantic with fear, Gemma starts a nail-biting search for her little girl.

After what feels like forever, her mother-in-law Diane finds Katie wandering lost a few streets away. Relieved to have her youngest child back in her arms, breathing in the sweet scent of her hair, Gemma thinks the nightmare is over.

But then her perfect family starts to fall apart.

And she realises it’s only just beginning…

From the top ten bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Child Next Door, this completely addictive psychological thriller of secrets, lies and betrayal will make you gasp out loud at the heart-stopping final twist. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Sister this book is for you.

The Perfect Family was the first book I have read by Shalini Boland and what a fabulous psychological thriller! I loved reading all the twists and turns in the book and it keeps you hooked. You will find yourself flipping through the pages and not wanting to put this book down. There is so much going on you just want to know what will happen next.

Gemma is married with two young girls and is struggling with balancing a family life and being a successful working woman. Her work keeps her quite busy and she is finding it difficult to keep on top of the family responsibilities as well, such as cleaning the home, the laundry, and finding time to be with her family as well.

At the suggestion of her mother in law she decides to hire a live in nanny to help with the housework and the caring of the girls, and it is working out brilliantly. Finally Gemma finds she can focus on her career while someone is there to help the with the girls, get homework done, do the laundry, do the household cleaning, etc and Gemma can relax and have more quality time with her girls.

Things are going great, until Gemma becomes suspicious of the new nanny. Is it all in her mind? Should she not trust the nanny? Gemma is not sure.

This book is full of twists and I loved it right through to the very end.

If you haven’t added this book to your TBR list yet you definitely should. A fabulous book! I am definitely looking forward to reading other books by Shalini Boland!
