Not Quite Perfect
by Annie Lyons
Genre: Chick Lit
Synopsis: Sometimes having it all isn't enough... Emma has everything she's ever wanted. Her boyfriend's just proposed and her career has finally taken off. And so what if her latest client just happens to be downright gorgeous? She's getting married. Isn't she? Rachel's married with 2.4 children (well, actually, 3) and life is all about trying to leave the house in a non-stained top. Once it was about skinny cappuccinos, cocktails and dynamic ad agency meetings. She wants her old life back, but can it ever be the same? A sparkling, funny tale of two sisters and how often you don't know what you've got until it's gone.
Review: This book had a slow start for me. I didn't feel like there was enough of a plot and that Emma was a less interesting, less quirky Bridget Jones. But then the story started to pick up, there were more twists, and I became much more interested in the lives of Emma and Rachel. There were even times where I was tearing up and I felt so much sympathy for the characters. The language in the book is very British and I struggled figuring out what the characters were saying at times. This is a good, light quick read.
