About this eBook

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 gripping and laugh out loud story of two sisters and how often you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

What readers are saying about Not Quite Perfect

'A humorous, lighthearted read' – Fiona's Book Reviews

'A great holiday read!' – Jill Steeples, author of Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

'Not Quite Perfect is such a page turner... I couldn’t put this book down and found myself crying with both laughter and sadness at this touching and thought-provoking story.' – Bookaholic Confessions

'Not Quite Perfect is a mixture of heart warming situations and light comedy. I found myself having a giggle and thinking ‘that’s so like my family’, on several occasions and that was nice and refreshing. Also, I will admit that I even cried in a few places because it pulled on my heart strings so much.' – A Book and a Tea

'The writing is bubbly and vivid and very entertaining. It’s a story about trying to find out what is important in life and also that live can’t be perfect all the time.' – Sky's Book Corner

This book is well written and hard to put down. The roller coaster that the characters find themselves on truly reflect how easy it is to take ordinary life for granted. I laughed and cried (not something I normally do at books) so would highly recommend this book as a light and romantic read.

Written in the present tense which I struggled with at first but because I found the characters so realistic I stayed with it and then couldn't put it down. A lovely story .

About the author

She lives in a house in London with her husband and two children. One day she hopes to own a chocolate-brown Labrador named John and have tea with Mary Berry.
