[The Perfect Stranger] by Wendy Corsi Staub
Social Media Series Book #2
3 stars

From The Book:
During the darkest period of her life, Landry Wells found solace in a group of bloggers who had been in her shoes and lived to tell the tale. She's shared things with her online friends that even her husband and children didn't know. Things that now, looking back, make her uneasy. One of the bloggers is dead, victim of a random crime—or was it? Did she trust too easily; reveal too much? At the funeral a thousand miles from home, Landry is about to come face to face at last with the others. These women are her closest confidantes in the world: they understand her; they know everything about her—and one of them might be a cold-blooded killer .

My Thoughts:
There was way too much detail about the characters. The book was mired down in character description from the very beginning. Eventually you just don't care about any of them any longer. The seemingly random killings were interesting as well as intriguing...thus resulting in the 3 star rating instead of 2. The reader will understand...if they don't already... the dangers of sharing too much information on social media sites and trusting total strangers. ( )

I got to about half way with this book and then stopped for a moment. There have been several times since that I had the opportunity to pick this book up again to read it. Yet, I could not bring myself to pick the book up again to read it. This is because I realized that even though I got about half way, I could barely remember what happened tin that first half. To say that this book was unmemorable would be correct. This is not the author's strong showing of her work. ( )

A group of breast cancer survivors have become friends through their blogs. They live all over the country and the world but they feel so close because no one can understand like another person who has been stricken by the disease. When one the most beloved bloggers is murdered, some of the bloggers decide to attend the funeral and meet each other for the first time. It is a time of sadness but also fear. Could one of the bloggers be the killer?

This book really held my interest. The mystery was not what hooked me. It was the women in the story. They were so interesting and the stories of their struggles with cancer made them seem so real. I took off 1/2 star because the end seemed rushed and some things seemed left unfinished. But as I said, I really liked the characters and found the book hard to put down. ( )

I never would have thought that I would ever see the day when there was a "Breast Cancer Killer"; however, Wendy Corsi Staub has done it with her latest, The Perfect Stranger. And it works. It was a very interesting premise and very scary at the same time. How do we really know the people we talk to on social media? What if they weren't really who they say they were and were instead a killer? How much information do we really share on the internet? Enjoyed this one! ( )

When Meredith, a popular breast cancer blogger, is murdered in her own home, the other bloggers in her circle of friends become worried that someone may have been stalking her through her writing. A major concern of the bloggers is how much information revealed is too much. They are planning to meet in person for the first time to attend Meredith’s funeral, but thoughts of a stalker following their moves heightens their fears, and at times borders on paranoid.

With multiple characters and perspectives, and a lot of personal detail, the murder mystery became secondary to the dangers of an online stalker. While I enjoyed the book, I never felt the tension or suspense a murder mystery should evoke. It felt more like a warning about the dangers lurking on the internet and social media.

Audio production:
The book was narrated by Allyson Ryan who nicely captured the feelings of emotion and fear in each of the women while at the same time providing distinct voices for each of them. Because of the multiple perspectives and changing scenes, the audio requires a little extra focus and attention to detail. ( )
