Picture Perfect- Jodi Picoult

Synopsis (from Amazon)

A woman is found in a Los Angeles graveyard, unable to remember anything about herself or her life.  No one is more surprised than she when, days later, her husband comes to the police station to take her home – and turns out to be Hollywood’s leading superstar, Alex Rivers.

Cassie Barrett begins to remember bits about her life: her passion for her career as an anthropologist, the whirlwind romance on location in Africa, her childhood.  But she senses there is something troubling in this perfect life that she can’t remember; and then, when she sees a pregnancy test, it all comes flooding back – and once again, Cassie feels there is no alternative but escape…


I must say I have been disappointed with Picoult’s writing more recently. I did enjoy the book, and it’s still an improvement on Second Glance or Mercy. I did really like Cassie. It’s strange I wanted everything to work out with Alex, despite anything, I think that shows some skill in Picoult’s writing that she could still give the sense that Cassie really loved him, and that he loved her. By the end I did really enjoy it.
