Picture Perfect Love

Author: Melissa McClone
Publisher: Zondervan
May 2015
Genre: Contemporary romance novella

They’ve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.

When image becomes everything, it’s up to love to refocus the heart.

Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day, putting her heart into every wedding to give the couple memorable images of their love. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren't always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. But Jenna has faith that she will find true love. Until then, she must be patient and trust in God's plan and His perfect timing.

Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away.  When an embarrassing Photoshopped picture of put an end to his political aspirations, he blamed Jenna. So what if the photo led to his being offered a dream job and changing his life for the better? Jenna betrayed his trust, and two years later, Ashton's heart still hasn't recovered. 

It was me. His younger sister's three words turn Ashton's world upside down. He must ask Jenna’s forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?  

PICTURE PERFECT LOVE is the first story I’ve read by Melissa McClone. I enjoyed PICTURE PERFECT LOVE and it held  my interest all the way through. I didn’t think much of Ashton though. He accuses Jenna of betraying his trust, but yet over and over he betrays hers. I don’t know if I would have forgiven him quite as easily as she did. I had to admire how she handled herself around him and his sister, showing forgiveness, yet standing firm for her rights.

There were some things I didn’t like. Letting the bride’s brother pay double her going rate to photograph his sister’s wedding. If she truly forgave them, then she wouldn’t have done that. She seemed a bit mercenary, with that and with another issue. I did like how she found  a good church and friends who supported her, both spiritually and in friendship and love.

If you like contemporary romance, you’ll enjoy PICTURE PERFECT LOVE.
