I loved Tricia’s blurb for this book so I thought I would share it with you:

Twenty-three-year-old Karlie is in the type of rut some people never escape from. With few friends, no boyfriend, and no plans to graduate from college any time in the immediate future, Karlie is as stuck in her ways as the elderly neighbor she spends all her time with. 

When her world is invaded by two surly twins bound for criminal court, a too-good-to-be-true love interest, and a cute cop who keeps showing up at the most inopportune moments, Karlie can either fight against the changes in her life, or embrace them.

Better than Perfect is the newest release from Tricia Drammeh, and it has got to be, hands down, her best work yet. Tricia has done everything from YA Fantasy to NA Contemporary, and her work on either end of the spectrum is always in perfect precision. Basically, I mean that she is versatile without flaws, and this book proves it. What I loved the most about Better than Perfect is that the situations are plausible and the characters are believable. I really felt like I could have known a Karlie and I did know people that acted like The Twins.

Talk about feel good novel of the year. Better than Perfect takes a completely sad and, honestly, messed up situation, and makes you feel for the characters. You feel stressed with Karlie as she has to deal with the local authorities, hospitals, and even family for her elderly neighbor, Marita. You feel excited when she meets Mr. Hunk From Across the Pond. (I could keep going on and on like that so I’m going to assume you get my point.) It takes you on this journey of self discovery that is not at all cliche and proves that sometimes growing up and moving on isn’t always so bad.

Better than Perfect would also make an AMAZING beach novel because it is chick-lit in a new light!

    Guess what, everyone? I published a book yesterday. Better than Perfect is now available at a Kindle near you. Rather than plug my book and try to extol the virtues of it, I’ll share this wonderful review from good friend and fellow author, Maegan Provan. Thanks for the review, Maegan!

  2. Great review, and congratulations Tricia! I didn’t realise you were so close to finishing 🙂
