Cover Description:

Movie stars aren’t always picture perfect, especially when it comes to secrets from their past…

Zoe Greene manages the careers of Hollywood’s biggest stars. She’ll do anything to help them – and herself – get ahead.

Actress Maggie Hall has been America’s sweetheart for nearly twenty years. And she’s about to learn that there are two things in life you just can’t fight: growing older and falling in love.

Dylan Mercer – young, beautiful and defiant – has run away from New York to try her luck in Hollywood. She’s not after fame and fortune, though. Dylan’s on a quest to find her birth mother.

All three women are swept up in the search for the actress who will score the role of a lifetime. But ambition and desire can bring out the worst in people. And in a town built on illusions, believing you can escape your past might just be the biggest deception of all.

Read on for my thoughts on Picture Perfect.  No true spoilers, promise.

Picture Perfect is a delightful story about relationships – mostly between mothers and daughters.  Toss in Hollywood craziness then it’s an all around fascinating story, or perhaps stories is more accurate.  The women in this novel are connected in so many ways – some known, others to be discovered.

In many ways I feel my hands are tied on this review as I try so hard to not give away spoilers.  And there are secrets within Picture Perfect, some that may seem obvious and some maybe not so much.

I enjoyed the friendships, the relationships in this story.  Finding love is always an adventure at any age and you’ll that romantic love is in the air as well.  Look for some old time Hollywood glitz and glimmer, and an actress looking at the role of a lifetime – but is it for the cameras or more personal?

I would recommend Picture Perfect for those readers that enjoy a complicated story with threads to follow and mysteries to solve.  Indulge yourself and enjoy Picture Perfect.

*I received an e-ARC of Picture Perfect from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
