Kate is a 30-something (who may or may not only admit to 29) single woman with a thriving business as an artist in San Francisco. However, she is also dealing with some insecurities including body image and the inability to have biological children. Suddenly not one but two men come into her life: Michael is a make-up artist who seems to prefer her over her beautiful roommate even if he does insist on giving her recommendations to improve her looks. There is also Clive, a doctor who gives Kate butterflies but only seems to be interested in her work.
Perfecting Kate is a fun piece of Christian \”chick-lit\” which turned out to be quite the page-turner. Even though it is really easy to become appalled at some of her friends who do very little to help Kate\’s self esteem (in quite contribute to the opposite), the story is cute and the fact that Kate is dealing with real life trials make it more appealing. The characters do actually seem more realistic than some other Christian fiction and the conflicts more believable. So, if you enjoy a nice, light read, this one comes highly recommended.
