LoveReading View on A Perfect Home

October 2014 eBook of the Month.

Gloriously moving and delightful, this is the perfect companion to hide from reality with for a few hours. At first glance Claire appears to have a heavenly life, her husband is busy finishing their dream cottage and Idyllic Homes are featuring them in their magazine (you know… the darling, fairy-tale type of magazine that actually stuffs you green with envy). Each chapter is headed with an extract from the article detailing Claire’s perfect home, each chapter then describes Claire’s reality; the chaos of three children, an indifferent husband, a monstrous mother-in-law and then the teasing, flirting and fluttering that a click of connection and hope can bring. Become friends with Claire, laugh with her, cry with her, care about her and cheer her on as she struggles to become the person she deserves to be. ~ Liz Robinson

A Perfect Home Synopsis

Claire appears to have it all - the kind of life you read about in magazines; a beautiful cottage, three gorgeous children, a handsome husband in William and her own flourishing vintage textile business.But when an interiors magazine sends a good-looking photographer to take pictures of Claire's perfect home, he makes her wonder if the house means more to William than she does.
