MY REVIEW OF "PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS" by TARYN LEIGH
I appreciate the way Taryn Leigh, author of "Perfect Imperfections" weaves the details of her story. The timeline of this story is mostly in the present with a few past references that pertain to the characters or the storyline. The genres of this story are Fiction or Women's Fiction.
The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. Some characters are mean-spirited. Other characters are capable of betrayal and deceitful acts. There are characters that are supportive and kind as well. Sarah Lewis leaves her home in London, after a major tragedy and betrayal, and goes to restart her life in South Africa. She stays at her best friend's home while she struggles emotionally to put her life together, as well as her business obligations.
Taryn Leigh does a fantastic job in keeping the reader in suspense about what the tragedy and betrayals are. We know that Sarah is keeping secrets from her best friend and brother, who only want to help her. Sarah is emotionally fragile and is having nightmares. She starts to put her business together, and then is called back to London for a family emergency. Sarah finally realizes that she has to go back to the past in order to move on to the present and future.
I really like the way that the author shows us that through adversity there is hope. The author describes having a support system, family, friends and love. The author also shows us good vs. evil, loyalty vs. betrayal, forgiveness and redemption vs. holding grudges and retribution. Taryn Leigh shows us the growth in the characters.
I would recommend this intriguing and emotionally captivating story for readers who enjoy fiction. I look forward to seeing more of these characters, and I do hope that the author writes more about them. I received a copy of this book for my honest review.
Oh why did this book end? I want more of Edward and Sarah! If you are looking for a contemporary book, that takes a hold of your heart, squeezes it for a bit, then lets it feel all the love, then this is it!
The words just seemed to flow, and they were very descriptive, with out too much description, if that makes sense! Such an easy read! The characters are well developed, and some you will love and some you won't, just like real life! I've had a best friend since we were in Kindergarten, and this book had a friendship just like us, it was wonderful!
Just read it!! Please :)
I was looking for a new author and something different then my usual books- Mystery and Historical Books and I came upon this find. What caught me from the start was the cover. It was simple but I really liked the look of it. When you read the book, you will see the meaning of this cover more in depth.
It is hard to believe that this is Taryn Leighs first book. The writing was very easy and flowing. I liked that she was very descriptive and I felt like I really got a clear picture of what each character was like.
This story starts off about a girl, Sarah, that leaves London and goes back to her hometown of South Africa. Sarah was basically running away from something that happened in London. It is not something the reader will find out right away, but as each chapter goes on, you are more intrigued on why she really came to South Africa.
In South Africa she comes to stay with a childhood friend, Katy. Katy and Sarah's friendship is immediately right where it left off. In comes Katy 'sbrother, Edward who has always treated Sarah as a sister. Edward is a handsome man who , as the story goes, you can see the real relationship between Saran and him.
The story was so easy to read that I went three hours with out even moving off my seat. You would never know that this was the authors first book. Her writing is well written and I cant wait to see what she has in store for us readers in her next book.
Please give this book a try. I felt happy and very satisfied when I was done reading this book.
It would be a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon
