Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The Salinger Sisters series spins the tales of four sisters who find love - in spite of them-selves. Now in Book Three, after years of trying to be "the perfect wife," Felicia is struggling, for her children's sake, to rebuild her life following a divorce. Now Felicia decides she needs a "wife" to help her juggle the demands of childcare, housework, and her fledgling career. Sensitive Brody Collins, an old classmate and "child care provider," fits the bill perfectly. But is Brody really who he seems to be? And what actually prompted him to take on the job of caring for her kids?
Author Shari MacDonald writes: "Nearly every woman I know struggles to balance dozens of competing demands on her time: kids and the carpool, finances and friendships, responsibilities and romance. Many of these women daydream of someday getting a little 'extra help.' In The Perfect Wife, single mom Felicia Salinger Kelley is about to get exactly that, and so much more..."

About the Author

Shari MacDonald, though far from "perfect," is happily enjoying her new role as "wife" to photojournalist Craig Strong. The couple live in Portland, Oregon, with their "perfect mutt," Ellie. Shari is a best-selling author of several inspirational romances, including Sierra, Forget-Me-Not, Diamonds, and Stardust, as well as the first two books in the Salinger Sisters series.

I only gave this one four stars because it wasn't quite as good as the two books preceding it, but I still thought it was excellent. It was an easy and relaxing read that made me smile and laugh at the end of a long day. The book continues the story of the Salinger sisters, and keeps the reader updated on the other members of the family, while focusing on the life of Fee. The story take s a little different spin than I thought it would take when reading reviews, but it was interesting, and kept me reading to find out what was going to happen. I enjoyed it a lot.

It was a good story but didn't grasp my attention in the beginning as much as I wanted it to. Unpredictable and refreshing. The characters had rare personalities very different than what we see these days. I am glad I persisted and finished the book.

I have read this entire series and I have to say that Book 1 - Love on the run was the best. This whole series was very good, I read all 3 books in about 4 days.

I loved the sisters, they were so different and interesting in their own ways. I loved their leading men, Jonas was my favorite. He was so persistent. If you have not read the series please do.

These books have a very strong sense of God in them but they were romance as well and I love that. When an author can combine the two and make it real.

I give it 5 stars - the whole series - it was very moving and special.
