Book Review for Perfect on Paper by Gillian Harvey


Clare’s life might look ‘perfect on paper’, but she’s ready to shake things up and put herself first for once… A fun and uplifting novel from Gillian Harvey, author of Everything is Fine.

It’s time to shake things up a little…

Clare Bailey’s life is perfect. Successful career, loving husband, two kids and a gorgeous townhouse. At least, that’s how it looks like from the outside.

In fact, she’s never felt more invisible. Her boss barely remembers her name, her husband is distracted by his new TV job and her daughter has never found her more embarrassing!

But when she’s given a chance to turn her life upside-down she wonders whether she should risk everything she loves for a life that’s more than just ‘perfect on paper’…?

My Review;

This book was absolutely bloody fantastic and not at all what I was expecting. The ending could have taken a completely different path and I liked the whole what if scenario going on between the characters. I won’t say who as it will give the game away and I think everyone needs to read this book. It’s so important that we don’t forget who we are as people, the world is changing constantly around us, you can start to feel invisible and forgotten about. But when you make the changes in yourself to make YOU happy that’s when people start to notice you again because it’s only you that makes yourself invisible. I really enjoyed reading the story about Claire and the risk she took. Actually I don’t think there was a character I didn’t like in this book they were all unique and some of the “corporate sexy” ideas definitely made me laugh out loud especially the unitards scene.

Thank you Anne from RandomThingsTours for letting me take part in the blog tour for this book.
