Product description


Praise for Perfectly Famous

"What a fun, engrossing read! Emily Liebert has such a gift for creating relatable characters who find themselves tangled up in something sinister. The ending of this book packs a huge surprise you won't see coming!"     -- Sarah Pekkanen, New York Times bestselling author of You Are Not Alone

"What do you get when you cross a famous author in hiding, her murdered daughter, and a newly divorced housewife looking for a way to fill her days? A fast-paced whodunit with one whopper of an ending. Emily Liebert takes us on a wild ride in
Perfectly Famous, a propulsive thriller starring two sets of mothers and daughters. Find a sunny spot, because this is the perfect summer read." -- Kimberly Belle, bestselling author of The Marriage Lie and Stranger in the Lake

Perfectly Famous is a killer summer read! When a back-to-work journalist investigates the sudden disappearance of a famous author, suspects emerge from every corner of both women’s lives. Spot-on characters and clever plotting drive this latest thriller by Emily Liebert to a deliciously unexpected ending!" -- Wendy Walker, internationally bestselling author of The Night Before

"Much more than a clever whodunit,
Perfectly Famous is a subtle and lyrical acclamation of relationships, especially the challenging one between mothers and daughters. Irresistible and intriguing, it smolders with a brooding, slow-burn tension that delicately unwinds to a final, profoundly shocking outcome. A captivating story that’s richly evocative, with characters you won’t soon forget. Perfectly Famous is a must read for fans of domestic drama." -- Christina McDonald, USA Today bestselling author of The Night Olivia Fell and Behind Every Lie

“A twisty game of cat and mouse with a shocker of an ending. Gripping and entertaining.”
  -- Michele Campbell, international bestselling author of A Stranger on the Beach

"Readers who appreciate strong, independent, female characters with a wicked sense of humor may enjoy this one.” ―
Publishers Weekly

Perfectly Famous packs plenty of meta storytelling about the literary world into its suspenseful framework." ― Popsugar, Thrillers That Will Have You on the Edge of Your Seat This Summer

“Her [Emily Liebert's] combination of dark humor and sensationally-plotted storylines was so gripping and addictive.” ―
She Reads, Necessary Thrillers To Read In 2020

“A fun, twisty thrill ride about the dark side of female friendship.” ―

"A breath of fresh air, because it’s honestly kind of meta." ―

Perfectly Famous checks all the boxes for a summer read. The twists and turns throughout most of the book make it a gratifying read." ― Authorlink

Praise for Pretty Revenge

"A riveting tale of subterfuge, betrayal, and retribution set among the glittering world of New York’s elite.”

  -- Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish and The Last Time I Saw You

"Old wounds reopen with a vengeance in the latest from Emily Liebert, an irresistible page turner set against the glamorous backdrop of moneyed New York. 
Pretty Revenge twists its way through a riveting tale of blame and obsession, where revenge isn’t as neat or pretty as it seems. The perfect summer beach read."

  -- Kimberly Belle, author of Dear Wife

“Liebert’s forte is creating authentic female characters, as she does here with those in both primary and secondary roles, while building suspense by withholding until late in the book the details of just what Jordan did to Kerrie 18 years earlier. A psychological thriller with a surprising resolution.” ―

“Liebert’s skillful character development illustrates the complexity of human motivations and encourages sympathy for unlikely characters. Aficionados of the TV show
Revenge or those who enjoy contemporary psychological suspense set in an affluent society will want to consider.” ― Library Journal

"Liebert (
Those Secrets We Keep) delivers a first-rate thriller in this irresistible tale of a wedding planner with a dodgy past and the longtime enemy who aims to expose her secrets.. Fans of Leila Slimani’s The Perfect Nanny will devour this expertly paced novel."Publishers Weekly

Emily Liebert is the USA TODAY bestselling author of six books. FACEBOOK FAIRYTALES, YOU KNEW ME WHEN, WHEN WE FALL, THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP, SOME WOMEN & PRETTY REVENGE. Her forthcoming novel, PERFECTLY FAMOUS, releases June 2, 2020.

She was born and raised in New York City, attended the Horace Mann School and Smith College, where she graduated with a B.A. in English Language & Literature.

After college, Emily landed her first job as an Executive Assistant at ABC News, where she honed her organizational skills and helped produce television specials for Peter Jennings Reporting. To this day, she is a whiz with "To Do" lists.

Since childhood, Emily's had a passion for writing, so when the opportunity to become Editor-in-Chief of The WAG--a luxury lifestyle magazine covering Westchester and Fairfield Counties--presented itself, she jumped at the chance. During Emily's five-year tenure, she wrote hundreds of articles, including celebrity profiles, travel, fashion, and beauty.

Ready for her next adventure, Emily became a full-time freelance writer, penning lifestyle pieces for media outlets such as, The Huffington Post,, Elite Traveler, Robb Report, Gotham, and Cottages & Gardens.

In 2009, Emily edited Kerry Kennedy's New York Times bestseller Being Catholic Now: Prominent Americans Talk About Change in the Church and the Quest for Meaning.

The following year, Emily published her first book, FACEBOOK FAIRYTALES, which was featured at the 2010 Frankfurt Book Fair, and Emily was one of 20 guests of honor--among Elizabeth Kostova, Russell Banks, and Lisa See--at the renowned Literary Feast 2010, a privilege reserved for best-selling and buzz-worthy authors.

Shortly thereafter, Emily was hired by Microsoft as the spokesperson for Bing's partnership with Facebook and appeared in 30+ television and radio spots for the brand, which garnered exceptional ratings.

In 2012, Emily wrote her debut novel, YOU KNEW ME WHEN, which published on September 3, 2013. Her second novel, WHEN WE FALL, published on September 2, 2014. THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP, her third novel, released on June 2, 2015, her fourth novel, SOME WOMEN, came out on April 5, 2016, all with Penguin Random House. Her fifth novel, PRETTY REVENGE, released on July 2, 2019.

Emily is featured often in the press, by outlets such as: Today Show, The Rachael Ray Show, Anderson Cooper, FOX News, Good Day New York, Oprah Radio, Martha Stewart Radio, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, InStyle, People StyleWatch, OK!, Nylon, Ladies' Home Journal, Woman's World, WWD, Woman's Day, The New York Post, The Washington Post, The New York Daily News, The Chicago Tribune, Boston Herald,, and The Huffington Post.

When Emily's not writing, she teaches Pure Barre classes and enjoys traveling, cooking, eating, and reading. She's been known to ride on a Harley Davidson. And she does a mean Running Man on the dance floor. Emily lives with her husband, Lewis, and their two sons, Jax and Hugo, in Westport, CT where she moved kicking and screaming for fear that there would be no Chinese food delivery at three in the morning. She was right.
