My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Do you like to watch Dateline, PrimeTime or any of the other ubiquitous real crime shows on TV? Do you love to read? If you answered yes to these questions they I believe you will enjoy the book Almost Perfect by Orly Krauss-Winer. Thanks to EBook Pros I was granted complimentary access to the Almost Perfect ebook.
If you enjoy mystery, intrigue, gossip and a little romance you’ll enjoy this book. I don’t know how the author managed this, but based on the descriptions of the characters personalities initially I was already formulating a visual representation of the in my head which I later learned was startlingly spot on. One thing I particularly enjoyed about Krauss-Winer’s writing style is that they wove real world stories into the plot. They weren’t just extraneous bits which had nothing to do with the plot-line, but were very well integrated helping you to form an interest in and compassion for the characters. It was a little difficult for me at first to pinpoint who was supposed to be the main character and without having read the description first it would have taken me quite a while to do so. In fact, Nilli, the supposed main character, was the person I had the hardest time picturing. That was a little frustrating at first, but the author finally did manage to thread all the story lines together into one cohesive climax and resolution.
