Picture Perfect

Author: Janice Thompson
Publisher: Revell
February 2013
ISBN: 978-0-8007-2152-7
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

She's trying to focus on her future. How can one man make everything feel so . . . fuzzy?

Hannah McDermott has a successful photography studio. She'll soon be featured in Texas Bride magazine. And she has a celebrity client whose Galveston ceremony will be her ticket to the top spot on wedding coordinator Bella Neeley's list of recommended photographers. But it could all come crashing down around her because of one man: archrival and photographer extraordinaire Drew Kincaid.

As the competition between Hannah and Drew heats up, Hannah is surprised to find that it's not the only thing getting more intense. She can't get the handsome man out of her thoughts--or even out of her line of sight--and the job of her dreams is turning into a nightmare. Will everything she's worked for slip out of her hands? And can she see past her pride to find a picture-perfect love?

I love contemporary romances and greatly anticipated starting PICTURE PERFECT by Janice Thompson. It is the first book in her new series, Weddings by Design, and it is full of the humorous moments fans will expect.

 I did expect from the beginning (without reading the back cover) that Drew would be the hero and I looked forward to what promised to be a fun romance. Hannah is a bit self-centered, and could have used some more positive characteristics to go with it, to redeem her somewhat. And Drew didn’t seem to be fully developed. But the book is first person, Hannah’s point of view, so maybe that is why. Overall, it was a good read. 4 stars. $13.99. 336 pages.
