The Personal Assistant by Kimberly Belle | Review

The Personal Assistant | Kimberly Belle | Harper Collins | Pub: November 29, 2022 | Pages: 352

This is my fourth Kimberly Belle book and unfortunately my least favourite.

The Personal Assistant is recounted from the points of view of Alex, her husband Patrick, and her personal assistant A.C. Kimberly Belle is a genius at injecting the exact right amount of tension and suspense into each chapter. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down.

One thing I didn’t love was the social media aspect of the book, which unfortunately was the majority of the book. The author was adept at slipping into the role of an "Influencer," showcasing the highs and lows of fame, but it’s so unfathomable to me that I couldn’t relate and found it kind of annoying.

It wouldn't be Kimberly Belle novel if there wasn't a twist, and it's every bit as powerful and shocking as you'd anticipate. Belle did a fantastic job of neatly tying up all the loose ends after keeping me guessing the entire time. I am a major fan of Kimberly Belle, and despite the fact that this is my least favourite book of hers, I will still continue to read her books!

Thank you to HarperCollins for providing me with a physical ARC of this book. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


USA TODAY bestselling author Kimberly Belle returns with a deeply addictive thriller exploring the dark side of the digital world when a mommy-blogger’s assistant goes missing.

When Alex first began posting unscripted family moments and motivational messages online, she had no intention of becoming an influencer. Overnight it seemed she’d amassed a huge following, and her hobby became a full-time job—one that was impossible to manage without her sharp-as-a-tack personal assistant, AC.

But all the good-will of her followers turns toxic when one controversial post goes viral in the worst possible way. Alex reaches out to AC for damage control, but her assistant has gone silent. This young woman Alex trusted with all her secrets, who had access to her personal information and front row seats to the pressure points in her marriage and family life, is now missing and the police are looking to Alex and her husband for answers. As Alex digs into AC’s identity – and a woman is found murdered – she’ll find the greatest threat isn’t online, but in her own living room.

Written in alternating perspectives between Alex, her husband, and the mysterious AC, this juicy cat and mouse story will keep you guessing till the very end.
