** spoiler alert ** Picture Perfect starts off with a police man finding a woman on the side of the road who claims she doesn't know who she is or how she got anywhere. Caassie, which is her name, is taken to the police station by the cop and is, a few days later, taken back home by her husband who ends up being the movie star and hollywood heart throb Alex Rivers. She later learns that she is an anthropologist and met Alex on the site of one of his films after being cajoled into being the anthropologist on set. The cop, Will, who had recently moved to Hollywood, away from his native American roots, tries to stay in contact with Cassie as she remembers all that happened in her life and why she ran away.
Eventually she remembers her hurtful past as the wife of Alex and runs away to the Native American reserve where Will takes her so she can reflect on her life. She gets in touch with Alex to tell him she is pregnant and having the baby while she's away. He begs and pleads and eventually Cassie leaves Will to try and help Alex get better.
Eventually though, he stops going to therapy and he falls back into a similar pattern and Cassie is pushed to do the unthinkable: tell the public, and leave Alex forever.
I loved this book. Jodi Picoult's stories never let me down and this one passed with flying colors! You learn about the life of a lone anthropologist, what it's like to be a star in Hollywood, and even some about Native American tribes. It is an excellent book and like all Jodi Picoult's books I give it a five out of five.
