Almost Perfect
by Julie Ortolon is a nice escape into the art world. The fact that
this story takes place in New Mexico was attractive to me because I have
lived in the Southwest for over a decade. The art world is very
fascinating and I think that Ms. Ortolon has done a really great job
incorporating this into the storyline and drawing the reader in that
with romance trilogies, the stories end up being a little cheeky, but
book one of this series is anything but that. I love the fact that there
was some antagonism between Maddy and her former flame Joe. Not only
does she have to face him again but she has to turn to him in order to
fulfill her end of the bet she made with Christine and Amy. Best of all,
Joe and Maddy don't immediately fall back into it again. It takes a bit
because Joe isn't...well Joe...well, read and find out!
The book is a "perfect" length to read in a weekend and naturally leads into the next book of the series.
