This is one of my favorite Judith McNaught books. It is well written, and the characters really have chemistry.

Convicted of murdering his wife, film director Zachary Benedict is driven to a desperate act. Escaping from prison, he has kidnapped Julie Mathison and spirited her away to a Colorado mountain hideout. For Benedict, it's a last-chance attempt to salvage his blown apart existence. And for Julie, it's a shattering schism in the orderly world she has fashioned from her rootless childhood. She never imagined she could be in such a terrifying position with a man as complex and unpredictable as Zachary Benedict.

As usual, Judith McNaught does not disappoint. This was definitely one of my favorites of hers and a good long read. :)

One of my first romance novels, and I've read it over and over since. Sometimes I'll just pick it up and start in the middle, or the end, or wherever it suits me. Great story about justice, trust and love. You'll also enjoy Paradise, by the same author, which has some of the same characters.

A follow-up to Paradise in that it completes the story of Matt & Meredith Farrell. The premises of Perfect involves a handsome movie star/ director accused of murdering his wife, convicted and sent to prison [he's actually innocent], he escapes after serving 5 years, kidnaps a beautiful young school teacher in order to make his get-away, spends a week in the Colorado mountains with her, she falls in love with him & he does her [although he won't admit it], when he sends her home, she defends him to everyone, then becomes convinced he's actually guilty [misunderstandings and mix-ups]...I don't want to give away any more of the plot. Typical Judith McNaught. The characters are well developed although at times the plot drags but the ending is sweet. If you like McNaught's other novels, you'll love this one.

More than just another romance. This was a New York Times bestseller. It is well written. The author weaves a romantic tale through Hollywood, the Midwest and Colorado mountain estate. A lovely fantasy that is entertaining and a good read too. A perfect escape from realty for the days you just want to forget about everything and go to a happy place!

This is also entitled simply, Perfect. It is my favorite book of all time. I have read it numerous times. It has intrique, tenderness, angst, and doesn't end too abruptly, which so many novels do. I have several friends who also state this as their all time favorite novel, as well. It is truly a wonderful book. Don't miss it!!
