Publisher's Summary

From the author of Our Kind of Cruelty comes an enthralling, irresistible novel of psychological suspense about three women and the destructive power of buried secrets.

When Nancy Hennessy is murdered, she leaves behind two best friends, an adoring husband and daughter, and a secret lover whose identity she took to the grave. Nancy was gorgeous, wealthy, and cherished by those who knew her - from the outside, her life was perfect. But as the investigation into her death flounders and her friends Eleanor and Mary wrestle with their grief, dark details surface that reveal how little they knew their friend, each other, and maybe even themselves.

A gripping, immersive novel about impossible expectations and secrets that fester and become lethal, Imperfect Women unfolds through the perspectives of three fascinating women. Their enduring, complex friendship is the knot the listener must untangle to answer the question: Who killed Nancy?

Imperfect Women explores guilt and retribution, love and betrayal, and the compromises we make that alter our lives irrevocably. With the wickedly sharp insights and finely tuned suspense that has drawn her comparisons to Patricia Highsmith and Paula Hawkins, Araminta Hall returns with another thought-provoking tour de force.

Deep character development and intriguing plot

In the beginning, I sometimes struggle to continue because so much time was spent on developing the characters, there's, but midway through the story, that development is what created such an intriguing plot line as all the characteristics of characteristics of each character came together 2 gather to enhance the story and that's the story and a thrilling plot

so-so

I liked that it gave the perspective from each character but I didn't like how detailed it was. It was a little bit too lengthy. Also the plot seems a lot more intense than the actual story itself.
