Emily Beach has a passion for wedding dresses—not wearing them, but designing them. She’s hitched her wagon to the stars and has grand plans to become the brand brides rush to when seeking perfection on their big day.

Until that happens, she’s working at a swanky London boutique. Her days are a whirlwind of wealthy, eccentric customers, and crazy, sex-mad colleagues. When dashing yachting-mogul millionaire, Henry, sets his sights on her, she gets a taste of the finer things in life, as he sails straight into her heart.

But does Henry really understand her need for independence, and her fierce determination to make it on her own? And did he ever really know her if he thinks she wants him to pull strings to get her on the first rung of the ladder? With the meddling of her wacky, energetic friends, she soon finds the answers to all of these questions, but are they the answers she wants?

Vikki’s Musings

I want to thank the author for the opportunity to read Seeking Perfection. I enjoy reading new authors, and this book has plenty of great potential. The story starts out great and pulled me is right away. The pacing is excellent and kept me wanting to read more.

Emily Beach’s character is likable for the most part and so is Henry, but for me there is quite a bit of unnecessary angst. If the couple did a better job of communicating, their differences could have been resolves easier, especially Emily’s impulsive decision at the London Eye. Let me mention, Ms. MacCallum’s vivid description of that venue makes me regret not going up on it when I vacationed in London last year!

I liked Henry’s character quite a lot. He is determination to win Emily is admirable, but his strong-arm tactics caused a great deal of the angst I mentioned in the paragraph above. I loved his pursuit of her from their first meeting.

If you’re looking for a romance that has a great plot, fast pacing and interesting secondary characters, then you will enjoy Seeking Perfection. Happy reading!
