The Perfect Someday has yet again solidified in my mind, not that it needed a reminder, that Beverly Preston is one hell of a great writer. She writes from deep within her heart and soul and what you receive as a reward is a funny, sexy, passionate and loving book.

The Perfect Someday, a standalone, continues the saga of the Mathews/Clemmins clan. We met this family in No More Wasted Time (Tess's story); happily continued with Shayla's Story (John and Shayla's story) and now we have Tracy's story

I was given a ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I love Beverly's stories. I loved every book she has written and each has something I enjoyed more than the last. We got to see characters from the previous books in here and I loved it! Tracey and JC spend their summers in Italy. On their last day they're out exploring, sight seeing and Tracy is taking pictures. She really wants to see this church but it has a wedding currently going on. Being their last night JC will not allow her sister to mi

When I saw the setting was Greece and Italy and the heroine would encounter the hero at a masquerade-themed wedding, I was all in to enjoy this one. As part of the Red Hot Lovers Boxed set this was a new encounter with the author and the series so that too added some curiosity. Sadly, my initial excitement did not stay with me and I ended up finding it a story that was only moderately likeable.

This was the third book in the Matthews family series. I had not read the earlier books, but found this

“All of our little imperfections are what makes us so lovable” (quote Tracy remembers from her father)
Tracy is the type of personality that has her life planned out in great detail, with school, her job and her future career. Little did she know that the best things in life happen when you don’t follow the plans you have in place. Sometimes you have to leave it to fate to find your true destiny.
The story begins when JC and Tracy are on their last day in Greece for their annual summer vacation.

5 BHS (Broken Heart Syndrome) stars... Beverly Preston has turned me into a page turning mess! I have smiled, snickered, giggled, and literally laughed out loud.

Beverly Preston is back and she does not disappoint! The Perfect Someday is a wonderful addition to the Mathews Family series. Preston's writing style is relaxed and comforting allowing me to relax and fully immerse myself in the story. I've been looking forward to Tracy's book; she has a lot of traits that I admire. She's driven, intelligent, loving, and determined. Also in every book in the Mathews family series you see that Tracy is constantly looking out for her sister, she truly is her sist ...more

This story took me by surprise. I read a lot, like a real lot. I kept thinking that I knew what was going to happen next, but I was wrong at almost every turn. I already loved the characters since I fell in love with them in No More Wasted Time and then fell even deeper in Shayla's Story. Now there's Vincent. Oh. My. This man is just so amazing, passionate, devoted and hot. Tracy's story is heartbreaking in parts, but her HEA is just perfect. I am very anxious to get more of their story in the n ...more

I LOVED this book. As with Beverly Preston's other two novels in this series, I was not left wanting in any aspect.

With all of the books in this series I starting it with an idea of where it was going to end up. You get the idea of where the book is going, and it's just all the problems that pop up in between that I don't see coming. I love a book that I can see the ending with. Sometimes you want a novel that doesn't have you on the edge of your seat the

In this book Tracy takes a break from school and goes on vacation in Europe with her sister JC. In Greece, a chance encounter brings Tracy into the clutches of a her perfect man named Giovanni. Being the level headed one among the Mathews siblings you wouldn’t expect Tracy to be trusting and spend time alone with a complete stranger but she couldn’t resist the connection that instinctively pulls them together. In one night they both know that they are destined souls but are soon enough parted.

I love that I was able to read two of Beverly Preston’s books back-to- back. I was little late reading Book 2–Shayla’s Story– and so happy after I finally did read it. I wish I had not waited so long.

Now let’s talk about book three of the Matthew Family series, The Perfect Someday. The very beginning of the book grabbed me, I was very intrigued and much of it left me breathless–both from the immense connection the characters had and the anticipation of them ge

Beverly Preston has become my travel agent of choice. Bora Bora, Greece, and now, Italy. This is the palette Ms. Preston has used to create the background for the Matthews-Clemmins family. Bringing the family to life, each story has been a little more vibrant than the one before it.

This latest layer of the family portrait immerses us in the sights, colors, scents, and romance of Italy and the wine growing countryside that is Tuscany. Ms. Preston vividly describes the countryside, that is so fami

The Perfect Someday is the 3rd book by Beverly Preston with the Mathews/Clemmins family and features oldest daughter Tracy. The story also takes us to the Tuscan countryside and the author lays out the scenery beautifully. You almost feel as if you are there as the story is being told.

I have been a huge fan of this series since 'No More Wasted Time', followed by 'Shayla's Story' and was looking forward to what the author would do next. The one thing I will say is she knows how to tell a love sto

I can not tell you how much I enjoy Beverly's books. This one is certainly another wonderful addition to the Mathews family series.

Tracy is one of Tess's daughters and we were introduced to her in No More Wasted Time. Tracy is now a college graduate and quite a smart young woman. She and her sister are in Italy on vacation and decide to travel to a beautiful sightseeing spot for her to capture the scenery she has always dreamed and add them to her collectio

A beautiful story set in the beautiful backdrop of the vineyards in Tuscany.
This was my first time reading something from Beverly Preston and it definitely won't be my last. Perfect Someday, like a fine wine had the perfect balance of love, heartache, humour and sexiness. She created a story of fate intervening for a second time to give two perfectly paired people a chance at love in the unlikely circumstances.
I love the characters because they were hard working and never took things for grant

My favorite books are those that have a story that grabs you and holds on to you. Those one’s that take over ever aspect of your life. You know, the one’s you think about while making dinner, stopped at a red light or grocery shopping. The Perfect Someday did that for me.

I daydreamed about traveling to Europe, about drinking wine and I don’t drink wine! I was plucked out of my life, and dropped into Beverly Preston’s words. With each page I fell a little more. I felt Tracy’s each emotion. I foun

I LOVED all four of these stories!

Tess, John, Tracy and JC all have a wonderful close family bond. They have each gone through things because of the loss of Richard. Richard's memory is kept alive in all of the books and it's sweet that they still talk about him and that Tom is not threatened by it at all.

Tess, John, Tracy and JC all find these once in a lifetime loves. They aren't looking for it and they aren't expecting it. They go through hard times.....Tracy feeling like she lost her shot

The Perfect Someday is Beverly Preston's third installment of the Matthews family stories. This is Tracy's story, and the reader is whisked away in the beginning to Greece, and then to Italy and the beautiful wine country of Tuscany. As always, it is so fun to see the characters that I have come to love from the prior stories - Tess and Tom, John and Shayla, Jaycee and especially Lisa and Benny Levi. (Hint hint - I would just love to find out how those two met and fell in love someday!)

I loved the first two books by Beverly Preston, so when she asked if I would like to read an ARC of the third book, I jumped at the chance.


This is the 3rd story in the Mathews family saga, but like the others, it can be read as a standalone. It follows the life of Tracy as she graduates and moves forward with her life. As a fellow brainiac, I could completely relate to Tracy: part independent woman, part romantic. Set in Greece and Italy, it is filled with romantic scenes as well as angst. I lo

Tracy is quiet, driven, studious, and the intelligent sister in the Mathews family. She isn’t one to take risks, she leaves that to her sister, JC. When a chance meeting with “The Italian” steals her heart, she lets go of her reserve and self-consciousness. Was it Destiny, Fate or just a case of Love at first sight? “People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime.”

Tracy’s story was emotional and HOT! It was an amazing love story that starts in Greece and then brings us to Tusca

I don't know where to begin but with a "follow your heart and mind at ALL times". Tracy let a good feeling slip away because of the encouragement of JC. It not only defined her lifes events after but destroyed her and rebuilt a more SOLID woman.

Beverly stayed true to the romance of her novels as well as the education you receive in each novel. "The Italian" warmed my heart with his romance as well as his in-depth knowledge of his passion and family. It goes to show that you don't always agree w
