Domestic Thriller


Everyone knows Lily Atwood―and that may be her biggest problem. The beloved television reporter has it all―fame, fortune, Emmys, an adorable seven-year-old daughter, and the hashtag her loving fans created: #PerfectLily. To keep it, all she has to do is protect one life-changing secret.

Her own.

Lily has an anonymous source who feeds her story tips―but suddenly, the source begins telling Lily inside information about her own life. How does he―or she―know the truth?

Lily understands that no one reveals a secret unless they have a reason. Now she’s terrified someone is determined to destroy her world―and with it, everyone and everything she holds dear.

How much will she risk to keep her perfect life? And what if the spotlight is the most dangerous place of all?



Her Perfect Life | Author Hank Phillippi Ryan


“Protecting perfection had a price”

Her Perfect Life has an interesting storyline. The story kept me guessing and has many suspicious characters and twists in the story. It’s told from multiple POVs.

Some of the actions of the lead character didn’t mesh up and I found the book lagging in certain spots. The last 1/3 of the book got me back on track. The ending was suspenseful and held some surprises.
