Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Perfect, Indiana, where the heartbroken go to find hope again.…

Cory Marcel built a successful military career over eight grueling years. But after her commanding officer brutally assaulted her, she lost everything. Shattered, Cory reluctantly agrees to work at a furniture store in the picturesque town of Perfect…but she wonders if she can ever escape the demons haunting her.

Ted Lovejoy may have cofounded Langford & Lovejoy Heritage Furniture, but these days, everyone makes decisions without him. He’s ready to walk away from his beloved business…until he sees Cory. Now he finds himself determined to help the fragile brunette rebuild her life.

Every time Ted gets too close to Cory’s heart, she pushes him away. But this kind, soft-spoken man could hold the key to healing her past and to creating a loving future for both of them - if only Cory can learn to trust once more.

An Engaging Romance with Sympathetic Characters

Not as strong as the first two entries in this series, but still enjoyable. Even though they deal with violent and frightening conditions such as PTSD, these books are actually very gentle romance novels. The characters are all genuinely kind and good. There are no external villains.

This 3rd installment was slightly less sympathetic than the first two. It bothered me that the female character was postponing treatment she desperately needed, just to make a point. And her condition seemed to be treated very inconsistently.

Other than that, this is a comfortable, easy to read book for a summer day when your mind isn't up to reading anything too complicated. It isn't great literature but a strong contemporary romance.

Sexual Assault

The story was good, but it’s a leap to think someone suffering from SA can go from barely kissing someone to being caressed, held, and made love to in the same evening. A gradual build would have been more believable.

OK book with great narration..


This book was sad and depressing and regretful and unfair, and because it was all those things I think I would have liked it more if it had been a much shorter story, 300 pages was too much. All that was so drawn out it made the story not-all-that-good. There was so much push-pull coming from Cory it was hard to like her. And Ted had the patience of a saint. Really, there was just too much PTSD. Four books on PTSD in one series? All those nightmares and flashbacks, page after page. That’s just not enjoyable.

I have read the Loch Moigh series by Ms. Longley and I love them but this is my first book of the Perfect Indiana series and it was barely OK for me. I know I’m in the minority here but it was just too sad for me, and Cory really was hard to like. I could certainly sympathize with her but not like her. Even with the HEA it just took too long to get there. If there had been something else to catch my interest, like a stalker or a murder or some kind of mystery, something other than a drawn out romance, maybe I would have liked it more. I ‘am going to read the next book, The Twisted Road To You, because it’s going to have an escaped convict in it, ex-husband of the heroine, so that’ll make it better. But that will be my last Perfect Indiana book.

I really did like all the secondary characters in this book.

There was sex in this book but it wasn’t until about 85%, so if you don’t like sex in your books don’t read past 85%.

I don’t recall any swearing so if there was any it’s not even memorable.

As to the narration: Kate Rudd is just wonderful. Her voices and emotions are awesome.

Once again another wonderful book I have not been able to put my Kindle down as I started reading the first one last week. I have been through all four books last Monday and I love the all.

excellent

I couldn't edit the second book, after writing the review, I got the book's mixed up, but in this one as the other two, you will learn to appreciate the veteran's that have served our country and came back with problem's, but the ending is just as good as the other two. women also serve and are abused. men and women that serve our country are very brave. this series I recommend for anyone who has or hasn't served in the service..

Great story which will appeal to many women!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed listening to this story and following Cory's story as she made her way through her recovery. It was great to see how she and Ted grew together too. Very touching!
