Review of Perfection by Danyele Patrick

From the Back Cover:

To the outsider, Georgia's life appears perfect. She is a young up-and-coming Hollywood actress with her own television show and spot in the constant limelight of the tabloids. But when the ghosts of her past beckon her to come home to her small town, she must come to terms with the family she has left behind as well as the truth about herself. She must answer pressing questions: Is perfection truly attainable? And if so, is it worth losing yourself to find it?

My Thoughts:

Georgia is a famous actress with seemingly everything she could want, but there's a huge whole in her heart. It takes confronting the past and a handy handyman to help her realize what's missing - God.

So, I liked the premise of this story. A Hollywood star coming back to God and falling in love? Um, yes please! Perfection reminded me of a Hallmark movie, and it was a very clean read. The author worked in some great spiritual lessons, and I appreciated The Prodigal Son angle to the story.

However, some of the story felt too perfect for me. I didn't see enough consequences for Georgia's actions, and at times it didn't really feel like she was a famous star because there wasn't - in my opinion - enough blowback. Also, I would have liked to see more, deeper character development for Georgia and Chris. I think with more attention to these details an alright story would have become an award-winning, bestseller.

Two and a half stars. A sweet story, but it wasn't my taste. However, don't let my opinion stop you. Read the story and decide for yourself.

I received a copy of Perfection by Danyele Patrick from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.

God bless you guys! See you next time!! :)
