The Plot (from Goodreads):
A brutal tragedy ended Ivy Hill’s happy family and childhood. Now in her twenties and severely troubled, she barely has a life—or much to live for. Until the day she discovers the name of the woman who destroyed her world: Lola Maxwell—the mega-wealthy socialite with a heart, Miami’s beloved “first lady” of charity. Accomplished, gorgeous, and oh-so-caring, Lola has the best of everything—and doesn’t deserve any of it. So it’s only right that Ivy take it all away . . .
Little by little, Ivy infiltrates Lola’s elite circle, becomes her new best friend—and plays Lola’s envious acquaintances and hangers-on against her. But seducing Lola’s handsome, devoted surgeon husband turns into a passionate dream Ivy suddenly can’t control. And soon, an insidious someone will twist Ivy’s revenge into a nightmare of deception, secrets, and betrayal that Ivy may not wake up from.
Thank you so much to @kensingtonbooks for the gifted copy.
I really enjoyed this twisted tale of obsession and revenge. It was compulsively readable, and I absolutely cruised through it. The Perfect Ruin is set in Miami, and I loved this look into the lives of the ultra-rich. The story is told mostly through letters between the characters, but I’ll let the reader figure out why! I thought this was a really interesting device through which to convey the story. I was anxious to figure out what happened to Ivy and why she hated Lola so much.
I don’t want to give anything away, but just know that everyone is lying, everyone is up to something, and the twists keep coming up until the very final page.
