Book Review - "Picture Perfect Love"

Book Description from the publisher:

Meet the people who make it all happen - the planners, the photographers, the musicians who have helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples as they find their own happy endings in the second Year of Weddings novella collection. When image becomes everything, it's up to love to refocus the heart.
Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day, putting her heart into every wedding to give the couple memorable images of their love. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren't always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. But Jenna has faith that she will find true love. Until then, she must be patient and trust in God's plan and His perfect timing.
Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away. When an embarrassing Photoshopped picture of put an end to his political aspirations, he blamed Jenna. So what if the photo led to his being offered a dream job and changing his life for the better? Jenna betrayed his trust, and two years later, Ashton's heart still hasn't recovered.
It was me. His younger sister's three words turn Ashton's world upside down. He must ask Jenna's forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?

My Review:
"Picture Perfect Love" is the newest addition to the 2nd Year of Weddings novella series and it is one of my favorites for sure!  I read this book in one sitting and I loved it.  Right away I loved and connected with Jenna.  The novella begins with Jenna prepping for an engagement photo shoot and in the very first chapter the reader learns how Jenna handles work-related stress, how she interacts with others and also how she handled being left at the altar. Jenna has compassion toward others, is realistic, yet is able to see beauty in things and handles stress and pressure fabulously without letting others see.  This is also a beautiful story of second chances and waiting on God's time and plan.  One line that stood out to me was a thought that Jenna had as she was trusting that God would indeed bring a man into her life, and not just any man, but "one who believed in her and loved her unconditionally."  This is a perfect love, a happily ever after love that we can all hope for.  I highly recommend this book and this series.
