Review: Perfect Paige by Ines Saint

When three sisters arrive in Spinning Hills, Ohio, home of the third most haunted street in the state, they’re looking for solace and support as they clear out the ghosts of their own pasts. But what they find is something a whole lot sweeter . . .
Paige Galloway has built her life around one principle—being the perfect mom. When the FBI busts into the PTA meeting Paige is about to host in order to arrest her husband, she’s mortified. Fleeing to Spinning Hills, her grandmother’s hometown, Paige is determined reclaim her title as the mom with the most. That becomes much harder when her husband files for divorce . . . and she learns he’s a lying cheater. Being the perfect mom now means she has to save her ex-husband from himself. But when the agent in charge of the investigation—the man who witnessed her total humiliation—moves in next door, Paige is surprised to find herself drawn to the Fed with the suspicious frown and surprisingly sexy smile . . .

After Alex Hooke’s tough-as-nails childhood, Paige’s way of life seems shallow—at least until he gets to know her. Paige is as stubborn and smart as he is, and while his job is to find evidence against her ex-husband, he’s more tempted to investigate the attraction simmering between them. With help from Paige’s nosy family, and his own curious relatives, Alex may still get his man—but what he really wants is the woman who introduced him to love

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  the expected publication is November 8th, 2016.

This story takes place in the same town as the Spinning Hills series however is not linked to the series.  For those that have read the series, you will recognize some of the characters as I did.  For those who haven't, it doesn't matter as it in no way impacts this story.

I'm trying to find the perfect way to describe this romance however I seem to be lacking in the vocabulary department today.  I guess I would say it was nice but that word can be taken the wrong way.  By nice I mean that the way that Paige and Alex' relationship evolved was in a nice, somewhat refreshing way.  I liked the midnight chats on the porch and how they became allies without really being aware of it.

It was also nice how both characters grew throughout the story.  Paige from the person who was perfect on the exterior & trying to keep up with the Joneses, to a person who spoke her mind and did things with meaning.  Alex, who was joyless (according to one character) to someone who discovered the rewards of mentoring others and letting people in.  It was clear that from the beginning that these two would be drawn to each other.

The real highlight of the story for me was the town and its folks.  Paiges grandmother and her side kicks were a hoot.  These were the ones I recognized from the one book I have read in the other series.  I could certainly read more with them in it!

Overall a solid read that delivers on expectations.
