Another great read from Jane Porter! I love Jane's work, so I wasn't surprised to enjoy Mrs. Perfect. This is one of my favorite of her single title contemporaries, though. I love how she managed to make the unlikeable (to me, at least) Taylor Young so sympathetic to the reader. Jane created a story in which a woman's life crumbles around her, her children are unhappy, her marriage is in trouble, and she has to do the unthinkable, turn to her enemy for help. Instead of gleefully watching her get her comeuppance, though, it's written in such a way that we feel that Taylor has grown, that she will adapt, and we root for her. It's one of my favorite Jane Porter titles, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves women's fiction. Mrs. Perfect would be especially enjoyable if you read Odd Mom Out.

I didn’t want to like this book, but felt I needed to read it since I had read the other 3 books in this series (I did not read them in the right order which didn’t matter.) I didn’t think that I could relate to Taylor at all. Porter pleasantly surprised me, and by the end of the book I cheering for Taylor and had a much better understanding of her. I should have known that Porter would surprise me and make me love the book and Taylor the way I do all her books. Once again I have learned to never judge a book by the cover.

I truly enjoyed this book. Life isn't always what it seems for a lot of us. We try to live the perfect life and hold up the image. But, sometimes, only you know what's really going on at home. Taylor has it or, or so it seems, until her husband loses his job. They have many struggles along the way, but it all works out because love overrules everything.

This was another amazing story! If you are a woman between 30-50 years old--you can relate to SOME part of this book. The characters and topic were very real. I love Jane's writing style!~It is funny, sad, and romantic all in one!

I bought this book not really knowing what to expect. I don't normally read anything like it but decided to give it a try. It was a breath of fresh air! At first, I didn't think I'd be able to identify with the characters or their way of living but within a few chapters I was hooked. I came to love the main character. She was a real woman and learned to rely on her internal strengths to support her family when they needed it. This was truely a book about learning how strong you can be even when you think you don't have it in you. I can't wait to read other books by Jane Porter.

Being perfect is hard. I wouldn't know, but according to Taylor Young, Mrs. Perfect, it is hard work Mrs. Perfect was the first Jane Porter book that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing. She writes intelligent and interesting characters. At first, I was not sure that I could stomach Taylor's shallow ways, but the more I read, the more I could see that Taylor was far from Mrs. Perfect. She was human. Mrs. Perfect was an enjoying read. Perfect for the beach or the airport. I will certainly be looking for more of Ms. Porter's work.

Mrs. Perfect was the first book I had read of Jane Porter's and I loved it! Since reading it, I have read every one of her books and am waiting eagerly for her to put out new books all stemming from Odd Mom Out.

This is pretty good mommy lit right here. Her writing style is easy, comfortable and she has 'mommy chapters' which give you a great feeling of success even when you can only read in the short intervals between going to bed and falling asleep.

Every girl dreams of growing up to be a beautiful woman with a great husband, amazing children and living in a picture perfect house.  Taylor Young is no different.  She not only wanted all of that, she achieved it.  However, her perfect life is about to change.  She finds out that her husband has been secretly unemployed for months and the person that she considered her rival, Marta Zinsser, may just end up being a close friend after all.   This is a great story of wanting the fairy tale life, getting the fairy tale life and watching in diminish before your eyes.  It also renews your faith in friends and makes you realize that what you see on the outside isn't always what's going on in the inside.

Somehow, the you begin to root for who you once thought of as the villian. Fun "mom lit".... still love Marta's character. An enjoyable read about how people can change, or how being your true self is always the best bet. Would love to see a 3rd in this series, that also addresses the children and how they evolve... but bring back more Marta and Luke!
