Book Review: People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd
People Like Her is promoted as “a razor-sharp, wickedly smart suspense debut,” and I wholeheartedly agree with that assessment. This book is a cautionary tale about social media, motherhood, and appearances not being what they seem. Told from three points of view, the story is fast-paced and nuanced. We get an inside look at the world of Instamums, their hangers-on, and what happens behind the little squares of our favorite social platform.
What interested me the most was the relationship between Emmy and Dan, the power couple of the story. They love each other, but also they want to pay their bills and achieve greatness. As their priorities conflict, their husband-and-wife relationship becomes more convoluted, ending in a climax that shocks you.
A solid 4⭐️ read that left me thinking about the power of social media
