Perfect by Harry Kraus

I can't really say anything about Harry Kraus as an author because Perfect is the first book I've read by him. But I can comment about the plot.
Perfect is about an accident reconstructionist, Wendi, who is married to a prominent surgeon. She has it all-a seemingly unlimited supply of money, the love of her husband, popularity and renown in the community, family support-but it's all a sham. So she decides to try to make that right by running away with her piano teacher.
But that plan is shattered as she watches her lover's car go up in flames. As a twist, her husband must operate on him. When he is stabilized, things get hairy, including devastating news from her sister, and direct contact with her lover's family.
But her husband, Henry, is having troubles of his own. Behind his organized facade, he's got a secret. Wendi's mother also has a secret she's hiding.
Basically, there isn't a single perfect character in this book. Their choices are far from perfect, thus making the plot imperfect. All the characters are good because of this.
This is the type of plot that needs to be written, one based one the choices of the leads. In the end, I'm not really sure if justice was truly done of not. But that adds to the originality of it.
Basically, the only thing perfect about this book is the rating.
5 stars
