The New York Times bestselling author of The Monogram Murders and Woman with a Secret returns with a sharp, captivating, and expertly plotted tale of psychological suspense. All Beth has to do is drive her son to his soccer game, watch him play, and then return home. Just because she knows her ex-best friend lives near the field, that doesn't mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her. Why would Beth do that and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasn't seen Flora for twelve years. She doesn't want to see her today--or ever again. But she can't resist. She parks outside the open gates of Newnham House, watches from across the road as Flora arrives and calls to her children Thomas and Emily to get out of the car. Except . . . There's something terribly wrong. Flora looks the same, only older. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then. They are Thomas and Emily without a doubt, but they haven't changed at all. They are no taller, no older. Why haven't they grown? How is it possible that they haven't grown up?… (mer)

Review: Perfect Little Children by Sophie Hannah.

An enjoyable book. It’s well written with creative characters. It is a powerful intriguing, captivating, and a surprising thriller that I have read in a long time. There are no hints or clues throughout the book to give the reader any mentions or secrets just around the corner.

The story is about two best friends Beth and Flora who have been apart for twelve years until one day Beth drives down the street where Flora once lived and stops in front of the house and sees Flora getting out of a car in the drive way with her son and daughter.

However, why are Flora and her children at that old address? Stunned, Beth seen the two children, Thomas and Emily were five and three who were exactly the same age as they were twelve years ago when they moved. Beth’s own children were teenagers now and Flora’s children never aged…

As time went by Beth started to investigate her long ago best friend’s family and even told people what she had seen, even the police, and at times Beth seemed loony and had a hard time getting her husband to believe her. It was strange at times but intriguing. So after, twelve years was Beth imagining what was happening or was there some other phenomenon taking place… ( )

I must admit, Dom was certainly THE most amazing husband through all of this! Beth believes in herself and that is what makes this book so good to read....she just keeps going! Talk about confidence? I guess we could all use a little "Beth" inside of us. Hannah's thrillers are page turning to read and that...is always a good thing! ( )

This is an interesting tale, but not a page turner. It took me forever to get through this book, perseverance is the sole reason I finished it. On the plus side, the storyline was quite unique. Did I manage to figure out the ending? Well, honestly, yes and no! That’s where we shall leave things. ( )

This book could have been so much better without so much rambling and back and forth about the same things, in my opinion. I’ll tell you why at the end.
Beth and Flora were best friends but have been estranged for almost 12 years. One fine day, Beth sees Flora, who looks like she has aged normally; but when she sees her two children, they are still the same age they were 12 years ago. What the flying duck?
Beth starts to poke around and doing some investigation on her own to try to make sense of what is happening. All this meddling puts her in a very dangerous situation, but she will not stop until she finds out the truth about her friend.
Okay. So I enjoyed the main plot of the story, but found it very irritating and exasperating that the author kept coming back to the same issue: Beth trying to convince her husband of how important it was to figure out the truth. I mean, yes, mention it a couple of times, but all throughout the book? It got kind of annoying and boring, hence the three starts.
Not sure about picking up another Sophie Hannah book, because I went back to see if I had read anything by her before, and found that I always gave her 3 stars for rambling, so... there ya go. ( )

There is no one who can drop genius plots like mystery writer Sophie Hannah, and no other author who grabs you within the first five pages and keeps you up speed-reading all night. The writing itself isn’t elegant - especially when compared to Tana French, who shines in the same genre of domestic mysteries - but Hannah is stronger at the twisting of tension as the reader gallops along, trying to keep up. In this novel, massage therapist Beth is startled to see her old friend Flora, from whom she's been estranged for twelve years. With Flora are her two children - who look EXACTLY as they did when Beth last saw them, twelve years earlier. As the Dorian Gray-like theme unwinds, Hannah also shares Beth’s humorous confrontations with her husband and kids, and we learn more about Flora’s husband, the abrasive Lewis, and the reason for the abrupt termination of the couple’s close friendship. Although the resolution has its implausible moments, the momentum hurls the story along with nary a dull passage. ( )
