Do you look perfect? Book review of "Perfecting Kate"

I was given the chance to read and review Perfecting Kate by Tamara Leigh.  As I've enjoyed another of her books, Splitting Harriet, I thought I knew what to expect.  However, I was surprised by Perfecting Kate.

The prologue gives you a glimpse into what's going to happen in the book and who the love interests are - Michael and Clive (make that Dr. Clive Alexander, who doesn't want to be romantically involved with a doctor?).  But the roller coaster ride Kate is taken on is classic (as I know her) Tamara Leigh.  Kate tries to be happy as a single woman, then she tries to listen to God's guidance on who she should date or not.  But sometimes it is hard to stop and think about what God wants, and time is something Kate is short on because of her job commitments, friends, and possible dates.

The heaviest topic discussed is how much should women change themselves?  Is a basic makeover enough?  Changing hair (color, cut), makeup, clothes and working out usually are enough for most women.  But when a makeover consultant hands you business cards from EVERYONE (dentist to fix that gap, surgical - mole, facial abrasian, spider veins, implants, etc), when is it enough?

So have some tissues ready because Kate is going to make you cry and question if you need to pursue an Operation: Perfect Faith!
