Perfectly Imperfect by Annette Lyon {Review}

Perfectly Imperfect by Annette Lyon
Kindle Edition, 47 pages
Published February 7th 2017 by Blue Ginger Books


From USA Today bestselling author Annette Lyon comes a captivating historical novella. In 1905 Shelley, Idaho, Della Stafford hates being a farm girl in a tiny town. She’ll do anything to live in a big city and experience real city life. Her only regret is that leaving town also means leaving Joseph behind, the young man who makes her heart flutter. But she's convinced that moving away is for the best; her dreams and Joseph's dreams are too dissimilar. So Della takes a job as a maid in Los Angeles, where she learns that what she thought would make her happy and what really will are totally different things.

PERFECTLY IMPERFECT originally appeared in the best-selling and award-winning Timeless Romance Anthology series's OLD WEST collection, under the title A SWEETEST TASTE.


My Review: 4 Stars

I grew up in a small town and truthfully, I wasn't excited to get out into the big, bad world. Della, however, longs to move to a big city and really experience life. There is such a difference between the two ways of life. The only problem she finds with her plan is leaving Joseph in the dust. 

Why is it that people always long for what they don't have and think that the grass is greener on the other side? Personally, I think sometimes we have to cross over to the other side so that we can make an educated comparison. Della does just that and in her case, it's very beneficial so that she doesn't resent Joseph and their small town, always wondering, "What if....?"

This is a short and sweet story that really captures the heart and entertains the mind. I always enjoy reading this author's works and this story is really perfectly imperfect.

Content: mild romance.
