Picture Perfect Love {Melissa McClone}

picture perfect love book
When image becomes everything, it’s up to love to refocus the heart.

Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day, putting her heart into every wedding to give the couple memorable images of their love. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren't always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. But Jenna has faith that she will find true love. Until then, she must be patient and trust in God's plan and His perfect timing.

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. So what if the photo led to his being offered a dream job and changing his life for the better? Jenna betrayed his trust, and two years later, Ashton's heart still hasn't recovered.

It was me. His younger sister's three words turn Ashton's world upside down. He must ask Jenna’s forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?

My Thoughts:
Have I said how much I love this series? Every time I read another Year of Weddings 2 installment I am sure that it is my favorite.

In this book we get to meet Jenna and Ash. Once engaged, these two are now single and trying to do life on their own.

We realize pretty quickly that Jenna has continued to carry around the hurt of being dumped at the alter. She is struggling to get herself out of wedding debt, and doing her best to be happy with the life she has. She is involved with her church, and enjoying her career as a photographer.

Ash is the political lawyer type. He's attached to his work and his family, and seems to not really take the time to realize how his actions and decisions affect anyone other than himself. It's his spoiled baby sister who brings Jenna and Ash back together for this book.

Throughout this story, Jenna and Ash continue to run into each other and their lives continue to intertwine. I enjoyed watching them become friends, and felt very proud of Jenna when she stood up for herself when Ash once again did her wrong.

Even more awesome was watching God work through Ash's life. You can almost see the light go off when he finally consults God on where his life should be going and who should be in it. This is a story of letting God have his way, and the happiness that comes from following His directions.
