People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd
People like Emmy Jackson. They always have. Especially online, where she is Instagram sensation Mamabare, famous for telling the unvarnished truth about modern parenthood.
But Emmy isn’t as honest as she’d like the fans to believe. She may think she has her followers fooled, but someone out there knows the truth and plans to make her pay . . .
"That Ellery Lloyd is the pen name for married literary couple Collette Lyons and Paul Vlitos makes this cynical take on marriage and motherhood in the age of the influencer all the more delightful. . . . Lloyd's sharp take skewers fake celebrity, mompetition, and the allure of the curated online persona."- Reader's Digest
"The world of social media becomes the stage for a story of obsession."- Popsugar
"This suspense-filled novel is clever and sharp as Emmy, Dan, and their circling stalker each narrate the story with compelling voices, albeit ones that are occasionally unreliable. Ellery Lloyd is a pseudonym for husband and wife Collette Lyons and Paul Vlitos, and their debut novel together blends their skills and knowledge to create a well-timed story reminiscent of Gone Girl and Caroline Kepnes' You. Learning the complicated and 'grass isn't always greener' details of the influence lifestyle is another fascinating aspect of this book, and will have readers thinking twice before daydreaming about those 'perfect' lives on Instagram."- Booklist (starred review)
"This thriller is written alternately from the points of view of popular social media influencer Emmy Jackson, her stressed out husband Dan, and the obsessive follower who is plotting to kill Emmy. It is dramatic and suspenseful, with a touch of humor to lighten the tension. I'll never look at social media the same way again."-Buzzfeed
