TWW's Book Review: Too Perfect by Julie Ortolon

In the final book of the Perfect Trilogy, Amy must get over her fear traveling by herself and getting lost. So to complete the bet made between Maddy, Christine and herself, she takes a job through her own nanny agency and gets on a boat as a traveling nanny for three children who are on vacation with their grandparents. What could possibly go wrong?


To not give away too much of the story, let's just say she gets stranded on an island with little money, no passport or clothes. Luckily she gathers herself together long enough to make it to the local travel agency that helps her with some of her issues. And she finds a sign for a live-in housekeeper. Well, that should solve her problems for cash.

And then the cliches begin. Girl goes to island mansion (in this case it's a castle), girl meets guy (in this case the assistant to the guy) and gets job. Assistant to the guy is actually someone famous in disguise, and ultimately she falls in love with the guy. Blah, blah, blah.

Of the three books in the series, this one is my least favorite. While it sounds all romantic and all, it seemed to be a little stretch to make this happen. But, perhaps this is what Ms. Ortolon had intended for this last book...make it a real fantasy. It was just a little OTT for me. The only thing that I found to be interesting and the one thing that I could really make a connection with was Amy's realization that Grandma was secretly sabotaging her life in every way imaginable, and Amy was too blind to see it. Oh look! Something plausible and the saving grace in the entire story. Rating: 

Wishing you moments of great reading!
