Book review of “Picture Perfect”
“Picture Perfect” by Lucie Simone
Lauren Tate is a high-powered TV producer. She’s a professional, but when work and personal dramas become the center of her life, her world spins out of control. With a soon-to-be-ex-husband and former assistant who are threatening to ruin her, Lauren claws her way up once again, which is where she belongs. When she hooks up with her network’s “it” guy, she can’t seem to stop the attraction she feels for him. It’s only when someone ends up dead (WOW!) will Lauren decide what’s most important to her, work or play, or can she have both?
When beginning PICTURE PERFECT, I found it to be a page-turner! The story was easy to get interested in and it had me hooked. While I felt sorry for Lauren, I thought that she was a little too rough and not likable in the beginning and didn’t relate to her, but she softened, only after someone ended up dead. I understood that though, and would probably do and feel the way.
While I felt that PICTURE PERFECT was a little bit too much of a mystery-chick lit, I still enjoyed it. There were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming at all (and neither will you), and it kept my interest from the first page to the last. I really liked the fast-paced writing, and never felt that the book was dragging. As a whole, the characters were likable and delightful. The story as a whole was enjoyable and funny at times. Lucie’s writing was exceptional and she wrote memorable, even refreshing, characters. If you want a wonderful, mysterious chick-lit, PICTURE PERFECT is the book for you!
I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars!
