Kindle > Books > Fiction > Contemporary > Romance 


The Perfect Trilogy

Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a best selling book, How to Have the Perfect Life—until they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up their lives. The worst part is…it’s sort of true. Together they make a pact: they each have one year to face down their fears—and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two!

Book One: Almost Perfect

A Free Spirit and a Reformed Bad Boy -- a Perfect Match?

Maddy was always the artistic one of the group, alive with color and mischief from her saucy red curls to her vintage hippie skirts. Her challenge, the friends decide, is to get her artwork accepted at a gallery. A job as arts director at a summer camp near Santa Fe—with its multitude of galleries—seems like a start in the right direction.

There’s just one catch: The camp is run by Maddy’s high school flame, Joe, whose heart she broke—okay, smashed—and his anger towards Maddy hasn't cooled one bit. But neither has their attraction.

Old desires burn hotter than ever as Joe makes it clear there’s only one way back to his heart: She has to get serious about her art. But will falling in love help or hinder Maddy as she struggles to meet her challenge?

Surprisingly sweet and nostalgic tale of young love lost and finally regained as adults, and then the growth of understanding of their complexities as a couple (and individuals) to see it take root and flourish.

Really well written, by a new author to me, and thorough enjoyable.  I am looking forward to reading the other 2 stories in the trilogy, as well as other offerings by her.

All things considered a 4 star read, and I highly recommend you give it a try, especially as at the time of writing this review it's still be offered as a freebie.
