Publisher's Summary

The brand-new novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Queen of Wishful Thinking - a gorgeous listen full of love, life and laughter.

Marnie Salt has made so many mistakes in her life that she fears she will never get on the right track. But when she 'meets' an old lady in a baking chatroom and begins confiding in her, little does she know how her life will change.

Arranging to see each other for lunch, Marnie finds discovers that Lilian is every bit as mad and delightful as she'd hoped - and that she owns a whole village in the Yorkshire Dales, which has been passed down through generations. And when Marnie needs a refuge after a crisis, she ups sticks and heads for Wychwell - a temporary measure, so she thinks.

But soon Marnie finds that Wychwell has claimed her as its own, and she is duty bound not to leave. Even if what she has to do makes her as unpopular as a force 12 gale in a confetti factory! But everyone has imperfections, as Marnie comes to realise, and that is not such a bad thing - after all, your flaws are perfect for the heart that is meant to love you.

The Perfectly Imperfect Woman is the heartwarming and hilarious new novel from the queen of feel-good fiction - a novel of family, secrets, love and redemption...and broken hearts mended and made all the stronger for it.

what happened, Milly? this is a shame.....

This is the most disappointing Milly book for so many reasons. firstly, it is at times vulgar to the point of making me feel sick, the choice of language sordid and smutty. What happened to the believable stories of friendship and love you usually write? this one boarders on the ridiculous and Marnie is so pessimistic as to be unlikable for most of the book. will be returning this one.

Need more conclusions

While I did enjoy this story I would not bother to listen again, which is how I rate my books. The author introduced several threads that went nowhere and where not brought to any conclusions. Maybe they like unanswered questions but I prefer to find out why something happened otherwise why bring it up in the first place.

the perfectly imperfect book!

Fantastic book and amazing narrator, Colleen Prendergast does Milly Johnson's books so much justice! I'll listen to anything read by Colleen and will read anything written by Milly.

delightful

A joyful book, where every chapter had a tad bit humour in it, no matter the lightness or darkness of the journey the main character was going through.

A lot of fun

I loved this book, it was a lot of fun and very down to earth. I think Marnie is a wonderful character and the performance by Colleen Prendergast is brilliant

The Perfectly Imperfect Woman

The Perfectly Imperfect Woman. I had this in my library when it came out months ago as I automatically buy most of Milly Johnsons books. I started to listen to it and thought it's boring so left it. Lately I have not been able to find my favourite authors on here Jill Mansell, Milly so I started to have a look through my books. I noticed this book and in desperation started to read it. After the first couple of chapters was not convinced then I got into it. I absolutely loved it. I had trouble putting it down. I will not describe it as it is not quite your normal story. It is a bit unreal in this day and age. I wish it could have gone on for hours. Highly recommend. No sex for a change just a good story like most of Millys .
