ending How far will she go to get what she wants How far would you go There s unfortunately not a lot that can be said about the exceptional plot that won t give anything away but I will say this is a frighteningly scary scenario about a truly psychotic girlfriend who is adamant to win back her ex boyfriend at whatever cost They say Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and it s never true than in this book I do believe we all harbour a little Juliette buried in us somewhere I quite liked Juliette at the start, I certainly didn t condone what she was doing but at first it all seemed rather non threatening but then oh my goodness, who would believe what lengths someone would go to in order to get what they wanted You fast become very worried for Nate, the object of her desires It soon became very scary and I was on tenterhooks during the last quarter of the book to see just how things were going to pan out Did she get her man back Well, you ll need to see for yourself but be warned, this is one highly dangerous woman There s also a couple of intriguing side stories that relate to Juliette or Elizabeth as she was known when she was younger, with the first one introduced to us in the first chapter, all leading you to form opinions of her early on I loved the backdrop of using Juliette as an air hostess, it was a very unique and interesting idea and I didn t realise quite what goes on behind the scenes of the job constant training and appraisals, jet lag sickness, tiredness, failed relationships, living out of suitcases etc all on top of dealing with whinging and demanding passengers The Perfect Girlfriend is an excellently written book, very descriptive, full of emotion and strong diverse characters, that I wouldn t hesitate to recommend and I d happily read by this author in the future A well earned 5 stars flag 252 likesLike see review View all 100 comments Jan 16, 2019 Kaceey Traveling Sister rated it really liked it review of another edition Shelves netgalley

all you need to know I ve begun to notice that I am really temperamental when it comes to books that focus on one person s obsession with someone or something Some I like and some I just can t stand The Perfect Girlfriend made it interesting for me, instead of being annoying even though Juliette is in fact pretty annoying Final Thought There definitely aren t any likable characters in this book, but I don t think there are meant to be I would also say there isn t anything too surprising in here, but the writing was great and I couldn t tell this was a debut novel If you love books about obsession I would definitely check The Perfect Girlfriend out And I can t wait to see what Hamilton comes up with next The Perfect Girlfriend in 3 ish words Scandalous, Devious, Clever flag 54

Juliette is so inordinately single minded that she is almost a force of nature and willing to play a decidedly long game in her quest for the perfect future with her ex boyfriend and pilot, Nate Goldsmith Whilst her ex may have just called time on their burgeoning relationship with an inevitable request for space , Juliette has an ingenious plan in store which she intends to execute to ruthless perfection At times merely obsessive, at others scarily psychotic, nothing will prevent Juliette from reclaiming her one true love After six months apart Juliette is prepped and ready for a reunion with Nate and key to that is her employment as an air hostess flying waitress on the very same airline that Nate is a pilot for with a planned reunion aboard further down the line Whilst training for her wings she engages in some serious Internet stalking and keeps a close eye on Nate s flat, slipping in to deposit his favourite wine and straighten the clothes in his wardrobe, all in the hope of jogging his memory of their happier times He may have de friended her but woe betide any man who doesn t change his passwords and from installing a spy tracking application on his mobile and cross checking their flying schedules, Juliette is building up to put her plan in action As Juliette schedules a reunion in Las Vegas with Nate after ten months of waiting she is ready to play the starring role in a fairytale of her very own making, regardless of Nate s opinion on the matter And if Nate doesn t accede to Juliette s demands Well, there is an easy way and a hard way and for Juliette Price aka TOTWGA The One That Won t Go Away , compliancy benefits from uncertainty Outlining the intricacies of the plot and just what ensues would risk spoiling the novel for other readers as much of the fun comes from seeing the extravagant lengths that brazen Juliette is willing to go to, proving she is than a match for Nate Goldsmith Stunningly well written, The Perfect Girlfriend is a pleasure to lose yourself between the pages of and Karen Hamilton keeps an unravelling plot ticking along nicely, upping the ante along the way with her constant factoring in of unforeseen responses and reframing of logistics Juliette is a difficult character to condemn or even dislike, so when the reader learns about the trauma of her childhood in a prologue which revisits her as a ten year old when she was known as Lily Along with sporadic memories of her teenage boarding school years it is easy to understand where her familiar feeling of injustice has sprung form and the exposure the reader has to Nate, the less sympathetic he begins to appear As a man who has had an enviable passage through life and taken it all for granted with a string of interchangeable women on tap there is something akin to just deserts about Nate getting his comeuppance At various points during the story Hamilton does an excellent job of depicting just how confused Juliette is, as she chops and changes from wishing to tether Nate to her out of revenge to then veering blindly towards imagining that they have a conceivable future together after such a checkered history.The airline backdrop makes for a refreshingly different setting and The Perfect Girlfriend is peppered with little snippets of information on the underlying loneliness of a life lived out of a suitcase, the difficulty of establishing lasting relationships and the temptations of alcohol against the constant fatigue of jet lag Given Juliette s occupation is simply a means to an end, her irritation with the exacting passengers quickly runs dry, but as something of a chameleon her many faces make her anything but predictable and she is a pleasure to observe from a safe distance I am usually a fairly harsh critic of psychological thrillers however The Perfect Girlfriend kept me throughly consumed, largely because of Juliette s breezy narrative, dry sarcasm and the fact that Hamilton keeps things simple The twist that knits everything together will be patently obvious to most clued up readers from early on, but thanks to keeping the characterisation of Juliette on the credible side of deranged and doing so to absolute perfection, the story works well It is easy to underestimate the skill required to pay such meticulously close attention to a character s portrayal without putting a foot wrong and letting the facade slip, and the very fact that Karen Hamilton has achieved this whilst still managing to elicit sympathy for the tenacious Juliette has left me keen to read of her work.Obsession and manipulation may be a tried and tested starting point for a psychological thriller but The Perfect Girlfriend is a superior example and comes highly recommended for an immersive, fast and outrageously

The Perfect Girlfriend is the first novel for author Karen Hamilton A former flight attendant, Hamilton s experience sets some truth and fact in a novel of psychological, obsessive fiction This novel really has only four characters Juliette, Nate, Bella and Miles, and each one has a unique and slightly dysfunctional personality that adds character to the novel Juliette although right from the beginning you can tell that her psychological functioning is not what one would consider normal is hilarious, passionate, and determined as Hell Her POA plans of action lists were something that the Type A Personality in me relished and envied granted, mine wouldn t involve stalking probably Although Nate is the victim and Juliette is, for all intents and purposes, the villain of the novel, Hamilton has written it in such a way where a reader will actually root and cheer for Juliette, and wait for Nick to get his come uppance A novel that is set all over the world sometimes only from the interior of a plane , Girlfriend will take you on a thrill ride A deranged yet lovable main character, exotic and charming backdrops and a creative storyline will leave you unable to put the book down

other stalker related books, the reader is left thinking about how crazy Juliette is, so that makes this book unique.I found the book very easy to read, and read almost all of it in just a few hours, because once I got into the story, I was dying to see how it would all play out I wont give anything away, but I did feel like the ending of the book was left with some loose ends that I would have loved some resolution to or maybe an epilogue , but I know that many readers of thriller genres enjoy books that don t have neat endings, and if you re one of those type of readers, you ll love this one Personally, I like my endings tied up so that I m left with no questions by the end of the book, however I know that neat and tidy endings don t always exist in real life, and I can understand why the author chose not to go in that direction for this book.Overall, I enjoyed the book and loved Karen Hamilton s writing, and can t wait to read other books by Ms Hamilton I d like to thank Wildfire

overnights at airport hotels are WAY too short for any of that I loved how Elizabeth Lily who was now going by her middle name Juliette , had carefully formed a POA plan of action to get her man back, including getting a job as a flight attendant at the airline he worked for, as a pilot She had given Nate his space for seven months and was now going to reinsert herself into his life as a sane , confident version of her previous self Had she continued to play this role, her plan may have worked, and I would ve liked to see the story continue to play out in this direction, with a plausible, but not necessarily happy ending after all, this is a psychological thriller, not a romance But Juliette is far from sane Two traumatic events from her school age years, have forever scarred her, and made her into the unhinged, delusional woman that she is today I was totally engaged in the first 50% of the book.her shenanigans were fun to read about as she strategized on how to win Nate back

dying to read this since the first time I read the cover and let me tell you, it was SO worth the wait.The entire story is told from Juliette s point of view and Hamilton uses this opportunity to dive deep into her character, she is one complex, unstable woman that I couldn t get enough of I never had any idea of what she would do next, she ll go to extremes to get what she wants and what she wants is Nate and a side of revenge She s one of those characters that will cause you to constantly change your mind, she s like watching a car crash you can t tear your eyes away from her As you learn about her past there were moments I felt bad for her then within a few pages her erratic behavior caused me to want to shake some sense into her She takes delusional to a whole new level, her brand of crazy and unhinged is both fascinating and enough to thank the lord that you ve never crossed paths with someone like her in real life.This stands out from other psychological thrillers not only because the characterization is so strong but also because the entire thing doesn t hinge on a series of crazy plot twists, instead it captivates in a subtle manner A sly twist will be inserted at an unexpected moment which took me even by surprise and lent an air of polish and sophistication that was just so well executed And the ending was just perfect, I can t say but my god was it chilling and

and a very different psychological thriller.Juliette or Elizabeth or Lily has had a difficult background, details of which are slowly revealed throughout the story When she meets Nate, a handsome airline pilot, she believes that she has found true love forever It s just unfortunate for her that Nate doesn t feel the same way.When Nate ends their relationship saying he wants her to move out of his flat as he needs some space Juliette gives him a few months before she intends to return to him She is not idle during this time, oh no She is plotting her next moves in great detail, and getting a job as cabin crew with the same airline as him is just one part of her Plan of Action.I was really conflicted in my opinion of Juliette I initially quite liked her, despite her obsessive and really quite outrageous behaviour She may have come across as a bit bonkers but she was engaging and her caustic comments were often spot on and amusing Although I didn t quite see what she saw in Nate, I did kind of hope that things would work out between them BUT as the story went on and her obsessive, deluded, stalkerish behaviour increased, I started to worry Just when you thought that she couldn t surely go any further with her outrageous schemes, she would up the ante There was a point when events escalated to the extent that she completely lost my sympathy and I began to feel really sorry for Nate.Without going into details of the plot and spoiler territory, The Perfect Girlfriend is a wonderfully twisted story with a totally unhinged character at its heart With Juliette s first person narration we are privy to her every thought and action and although I would have liked to have heard from the POV of other characters a little to give a balance, seeing everything through her eyes gives a chilling and almost claustrophic feel to the story.The old adage of write what you know has clearly worked here for Karen Hamilton using her own experience of working for an airline makes for an authentic and revealing backdrop and it added a good balance to the story, both in terms of lifestyle and the difficulties it can cause for any kind of normal homelife I found it fascinating to read about and although I ve always thought how glamorous the job was, also now realise how demanding it can be.Despite reading through my fingers at times in sheer horror and cringing at some of Juliette s antics, I very much enjoyed this and would love to read from this author Juliette is one character that I won t forget in a hurry Disturbing, gripping and entertaining Yes, The Perfect

happily ever after with Nate.You see, six months ago Nate left her and broke her heart, but now she knows how to win him over, make him fall in love again and be everything he ever wanted and needed.The best thing about The Perfect Girlfriend is it s perspective We get to see everything from the psycho s POV, every move, every thought that Juliette has, we get to experience there with her.And the best part, even though we know what she s doing is wrong, we still feel the empathy.At least, that s what my reading experience was like.I caught myself rooting for Juliette even though I knew what she was doing was so wrong I even detected myself breathing hard thinking No, don t do that, you ll turn him off from you No, This is wrong, you should do it differently like I wanted for Juliette to complete her mission and really manipulate Nate into falling in love with her.Even though I knew that my compassion is coming from the wrong place, but I still couldn t help myself.I guess Juliette manipulated me as well Or maybe there s a little psycho squatted in me, and this book helped her to see a glimpse of light.Enough with my philosophy, I will tell you just few things about the book.The writing style is amazing as you probably already concluded basing on my previous ramblings and the fact that this is Hamilton s debut novel blows my mind I can t wait to read her next novel, and the one that ll come out after that one, and every one after that, because I just want to be in the first class on that Karen Hamilton wagon that will takes us whatever it will take us I don t care where, I just know I want to be there again me and my philosophy, it is obvious I haven t write reviews for a while.The Perfect Girlfriend is a brilliant piece of work Thrilling and unique read

so crazy that you do have to put the believability factor to one side and just go with it ,as at times I did find myself laughing with the ridiculousness of it all.I ve struggled with writing a review for The Perfect Girlfriend my thoughts are all over the place.It did hold my interest enough to finish but I was slightly disappointed with the ending and some of the sub plots didn t seem necessary either As the author was previously a flight attendant I did enjoy that the story was based around the airline industry It was interesting to learn what the day to day life of a flight attendant is

situation sometimes the main protagonists ARE the untenable situation as is true with Juliette, the star of The Perfect Girlfriend and what a star she is.Obsessive Yes Brilliantly engaging Yes Really quite scary Yes absolutely, also occasionally witty, always focused, also actually has a real beef, Nate isn t exactly the most reliable or the nicest of men Still, you know, she wants him back and boy will she do absolutely anything to achieve that goal.I loved it Juliet not withstanding, the book flows outwards in a fascinating, page turning fashion, the underlying titbits about life in the air are endlessly enthralling brought to beautiful life by Juliette who whilst using them as a means to an end also gets somewhat caught up in it I loved how she related to other people, both those she was using and those that just came into her line of sight her inner thought processes are often hilarious but bang on the money so even though she s obviously nuts its that kind of nuts that you really relate to.I won t give away anything about how she gets on or whether her obsessive and perfectly formed plan works out but you ll have a hell of a reading time getting to that answer, a lot of fun and a lot of insightful probing of human foibles and how we are formed The Perfect Girlfriend resonates on than one level.But mostly it is all Juliet Passionate and determined she will pull you along with her, in fact I spent most of the read wishing for her success I can t think of anything appropriate for Nate than to be forever locked into her sphere of gravity but whether or not my wish was granted you ll have to read to find out.Yes I know you shouldn t root for the stalker But in this case I simply couldn t help myself.Incredibly addictive, should come with a Do Not Disturb sign even though you ll end up disturbed in quite another sense The Perfect Girlfriend is the perfect lazy reading day experience.Recommended flag 20 likesLike see review Dec 16, 2018 Maggie marked it as

attendant with the airline her ex boyfriend, Nate works at as a surprise, plus the job seems like it could be interesting She drops by Nate s apartment to check in on things, but she s not being nosy he wanted space and she s giving it to him because she loves him and just wants to get back together with him.Except Juliette is living on a different plane then the rest of us I know couldn t be helped and she thinks very, very differently than most people do.Because Juliette is giving Nate his space but only because she has a plan to get him back, because she s sure they are destined to be together Together no matter what No matter who gets in her way, no matter if Nate isn t interested, no matter if she finds Nate even irritating than she finds everyone else which is a lot , no matter if complication after complication arises which they do.It takes bravery to make your main character unlikable, and Juliette is profoundly unlikable She s delusional, obsessive, and lacks understanding of basic social skills She s capable of seeming nice but isn t able to do than become enraged when new or old acquaintances don t want to do what she wants them to do And as she wants instant, forever friendships or relationships that are impossible to sustain because she can t stop herself from prying or stealing or coming on too strong or often, all of that then she is always left disappointed And angry.Juliette does have a troubled past but that past has led her to become well, I think parasite is too kind Juliette doesn t want to be part of Nate s life, she wants to be his life and wife and be not just part of his family but to be loved and accepted by them on a level that isn t possible In The Perfect Girlfriend, it really is enthralling to watch Juliette go after her what she wants, get it, and decide it isn t enough And that s the thing no matter what or who she wants, when Juliette gets it, the result never lives up to her fantasy So she reassesses and starts again, tries some Always in pursuit of something that can never happen.It can t happen because instant and lifelong perfection isn t attainable but also because Juliette, for all that she wants love, isn t capable of it She sees people as things to be obtained or destroyed It usually starts with attain and ends with her wanting destruction as everyone is never a good enough friend, never apologetic enough for what she feels are slights, and, in the case of Nate, will never be enough and she will do whatever it takes to get what she wants, a lesson Nate is slow to learn.Juliette is not someone that readers will like or possibly even empathize with but her ferocity at her core, she is simply furious anger is astounding and the lengths she will go to via detailed planning or simply knowing how to use a moment or a person makes for fascinating if very chilling reading.If you enjoy deeply flawed main characters and if you can handle a nonstop psychological game in which everyone loses even Juliette, because nothing and no one will be right enough then you should absolutely check out The Perfect Girlfriend It s genuinely creepy, because Juliette is terrifying, but there s also an occasional sly moment, and despite her lack of humanity, Juliette s belief in it and yes, always anger at it makes this a weirdly engaging read.I think Juliette s take on an old saying shows what The Perfect Girlfriend iswell, perfectly If you love someone, set them free.If they come back, they re yours.If they don t, make them flag 18 likesLike see review View all 5 comments Jan 04, 2019 Ante

Hamilton has created a complex character, she s a woman you will love, hate, she s someone you will want to shake some sense into, she s scary, obsessive and a control freak and deluded but boy does she make The Perfect Girlfriend a deliciously twisted read.From the introduction you know something really bad happened to Juliette as a young girl, so you can t help but blame some of her behaviour on past events As the reader I found myself making excuses for her increasing erratic behaviour, but on the other hand the way she manipulated situations and people also made me dislike her intensely At first her behaviour appears a little off and fairly harmless, but as the story develops and she becomes determined to win the love of her life Nate back things take a far sinister turn, the old adage Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned sprung to mind.Juliette certainly fits the definition bunny boiler to a T, but the incredibly scary thing is she s very credible, she justifies everything she does in the name of love , how many times have you read or heard someone say I did it because I loved them You may I have noticed I said at the beginning of my review this was a book that shouldn t have worked, it s slow paced, the focus is very much centred on one characters thoughts and actions, there s no real mystery, see what I mean But thanks to the authors unique style of writing The Perfect Girlfriend is a compelling and twisted story of an obsession that s dangerously out of control If I had one tiny criticism I thought the ending lacked a clear conclusion, but other readers may think the ending was perfect , either way I would say enjoy the ride , with plenty of turbulence and flawed characters this is a book I would highly recommend.All my reviews can be found at flag 18

, the story drew me in immediately as it became clear that there were some very unusual dynamics at play here Juliette s boyfriend Nate may have ended their relationship, but she is not that easily dumped According to her, the two of them are meant to be , if only she could make Nate see sense And Juliette will not stop at anything to get her point across From breaking into Nate s apartment to leave his favourite muffins in the freezer for him, to changing careers in order of getting a job with the airline he works for, to even installing a spy app on his phone to keep track of his every move, this is a girl who knows what she wants and who is determined to get it Extremely well written and compelling in its storyline and no nonsense narrator, The Perfect Girlfriend took me on a rollercoaster ride of conflicting emotions I sometimes felt like I was in a game of twister, one leg on disbelief, the other on humour, with one hand on horror and the other waving frantically around in an effort to come up for air For most of the book the palette of emotions congealed in a kind of morbid fascination as I breathlessly watched events unfold, knowing that nothing good could come of Juliette Lily s actions.Juliette is a most unusual character Whilst not quite as blunt as Gail Honeyman s Eleanor, Juliette is quite frank about her bordering on sociopathic thoughts and emotions It is obvious that she has a problem, and that her actions veer into crazy territory, and yet anyone who has ever been cheated on, slighted or bullied will gain a certain satisfaction from her well thought out plans of revenge and her total lack of boundaries At times her rationale was quite humorous and cynical, and made me laugh Does that make me crazy, too I really wanted to see Nate and Bella get what they deserved most of us have had a character like that in our lives at some stage, the privileged person to whom rules don t seem to apply, who bully and wheedle and get their own way, sailing through life on the expense of others I hated them both, knowing that Juliette was probably not the most reliable judge of character And despite everything, I never stopped rooting for Juliette, which to me highlights Karen Hamilton s skills as a writer to elicit such empathy in the reader that they are willing to justify or simply overlook and forgive Juliette s crazy actions.As far as psychological thrillers go, it is difficult these days to find one with an original premise that has not been done a million times before in various shades of grey Hamilton somehow managed that difficult trick, and it really paid off for me From the airline setting, which was unusual and interesting, to a character who defies all stereotypes of your typical young air hostess, I couldn t tear myself away from the story I won t give any away in terms of plot, because I don t want to spoil anything for other readers, just to say that the story managed to shock and surprise right up to the end Points for the most unusual and original psychological thriller of the year so far Did it thrill yes Surprise Yes Shock Definitely It even made me question my own sanity as I secretly cheered Juliette along in her mission If you are looking for an unusual psychological thriller with a somewhat crazy but likeable heroine, then I urge you to give this one a go The Perfect Girlfriend is
