Picture Perfect Love ~ Review

Picture Perfect Love
A Year of Weddings: A June Wedding Story
By Melissa McClone

Jenna Harrison's heart was broken when her fiancee Ashton Vance not only left her at the altar, he accused her of lying to him, and left her with financial wedding ruin.  Is it any wonder that she is less than pleased when he shows up on her doorstep two years too late with an apology.

Ashton can't believe his little sister kept her part in his political downfall secret until she needed Jenna's photographic skills for her own wedding.  He's never forgotten Jenna, but is a second chance possible when he public accused her of lying and nearly destroyed her business in the process?

As Jenna and Ashton work through their issues can they truly discover what true love is?  And did they ever really love one another if they could so easily be divided in the first place?

This is a perfect week-end excursion for those hot summer days when you don't want to do anything except maybe avoid the heat.  This story does have a happy conclusion, but it provides a caution "What is your motivation in getting married?"  Is it love? Financial security? Political ambition? Or God's will?  Stop and ask yourself this question before you say yes when the question is popped you may save yourself heart-ache.

I was provided a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away. When an embarrassing Photoshopped picture of put an end to his political aspirations, he blamed Jenna.
