I received a free copy from the author and Rachel’s Random Resources in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, what another fantastic book, I feel like I’m really on a roll at the moment with the books I’m reading! Fingers crossed this carries on!

The Problem with Perfect is a great mystery/romance book that follows Marigold as she deals with the sudden death of her husband and the realization that her life isn’t exactly what she thought it was. I really enjoyed getting to know Marigold, this is definitely a story with a multitude of complex well-developed characters and I really enjoyed being able to follow them on their journey. I also like how the author was able to write in such a way that it was easy to see why the characters were making certain decisions even if they were not always correct.

I also really liked that this was not a book I could easily predict, some parts sure, but the majority not at all, when reading I’m either in the mood for a whole lot of surprises or a nice easy predictable read and this was most definitely one for a whole lot of surprises! A great four and a half star read!

Rating: 4.5/5

Would I read again: Yes

Would I Recommend: Yes

Would I read another book from this author: Yes
