Nobody’s Perfect Are They?
Rebecca Loughton’s bumbled her way through her thirty-something years making a few cock-ups along the way. Of course, these wouldn’t be so obvious if it wasn’t for her golden haired, older sister Jennifer.
In a bid to escape Jennifer’s lengthy shadow and to find her happy ever after Rebecca, high-tails it out of her hometown of Christchurch to the other side of the world landing a legal secretary job in the buzzing city of Dublin. A few drinks later, all she has to show for her new life is an embarrassing one-night stand and a dollop of flirtatious banter with her boss Ciaran, who just happens to have a predatory receptionist in hot pursuit of him.
Amidst plans of preventing such a merger, Rebecca receives news that Jennifer’s picture perfect life has a big, fat crack down the middle of it in the form of a philandering husband. Summoned home to look after her sister’s children and cooking school while she works on her marriage, Rebecca finds the reality of looking after two young children along with the bizarre array of guests booked into the cooking school grim. The only bright spot on her horizon are Ciaran’s e-mails but then she meets David Seagar whom she thinks might just be the ending to her happy ever after but will he prove to be far from perfect too?
4 Sisterly Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
At the beginning of this book I was so glad I don’t have a sister, but by the end I was a little jealous… this was a fun lighthearted read filled with laughs,love, and sisters….
Rebecca is the little sister… fun-loving a bit irresponsible and feeling as though she can never live up to her “perfect” big sister… Jennifer is responsible, married, with two adorable children, and the owner of a successful cooking school…. when Jennifer’s “perfect” life falls apart Rebecca flies from Ireland back to New Zealand to help pick up the pieces…. I loved how this book really delved into the relationship between these two sisters… I really liked both of them, although I might have been a little more partial towards Rebecca…. Rebecca taking care of her sister’s two kids and running the cooking business was quite humorous…. I also think it did her a world of good to find out things aren’t always as perfect as they seem…. I also think this realization improved the relationship between sisters greatly!
There is also a bit of romance in this book, however it really takes a backseat to the sister relationship and that was just perfectly fine with me! This really is the perfect book to throw in your beach bag as you head out the door… whether you are headed to the beach, pool, the park, or to pick your kids up from a sporting event….

Author Bio –
Hello, my name is Michelle Vernal, and by way of introduction, I’m Mum to Josh and Daniel and am married to the super supportive Paul. We live in the garden city of Christchurch, New Zealand with our three-legged, black cat called Blue. BC (before children) Paul and I lived and worked in Ireland, the experiences we had there have flavoured my books.
I’ve always written, but it was only after my first son was born that I decided to attend a creative writing course at Canterbury University. Oh the guilt dropping him at pre-school so I could learn the basics of story writing, but oh the joy of having conversation to contribute other than the price of nappies that week! The first piece I ever penned post course was published by a New Zealand parenting magazine. I went on to write humorous; opinion styled pieces of my take on parenting, but when the necessity for being politically correct got too much, I set myself the challenge of writing a novel. Six books later and a publishing deal with Harper Impulse here I am. These days I write for a North Canterbury lifestyle magazine and my latest book Sweet Home Summer has just been released by Harper Impulse.
