Tracy Mathews lives life by the perfect moral code.
After graduating magna cum laude in Marketing, she travels to the fabled churches of Santorini to capture the unspoiled sunset, only to find a masquerade wedding about to begin. Tracy is persuaded by her younger sister to crash the ceremony. While donning a mask in Greece, she encounters a magnetically charming, handsome Italian, who entices her deepest desires.
After a brief and mysterious rendezvous with future promises made, she returns home only to realize her dreams of the perfect man have been shattered—until an unexpected job opportunity presents itself in Italy.
Vincent is a fifth generation winemaker in the rolling hills of Tuscany. On the verge of losing his family’s estate, will Tracy Mathews, an up and coming marketing entrepreneur, be exactly what he needs to save his family heritage and his broken heart?
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.
With promises to call their separation doesn’t seem that daunting but as Tracy makes it back home without receiving that call she becomes withdrawn and depressed. As weeks, months and years pass she begins questioning herself. Were these intense feelings for a man she barely knew just a product of wayward hormones? Did something tragic happen to the man she thought she was predestined to be with? Or maybe what she felt wasn’t reciprocated just as she had imagined?
Concentrating on starting her career she attempts to forget this man that affected her and swears off anything Italian but when the Levi’s persuade her to celebrate an anniversary in Tuscany she is provided with a business opportunity that she couldn’t refuse and ends up staying indefinitely. Here she meets another Italian that affects her just as Giovanni did but is she ready to finally let go and follow her heart again?
“I always assumed falling in love would take time, months or even years, getting to know someone. There is so much I don’t know about you yet…but I don’t care about any of that. Because this…this feels better than anything else in the world.”
For the past couple days I was totally consumed by the entire Mathews Family Series where I might as well dub these few days as “Beverly Preston Weekend”. I’ve read the first two books months ago (upon release) but was coaxed to reread them again after finishing The Perfect Someday. These books are that stunning that they deserved to be read over again.
What is it about this series that manages to amaze me every time? It could have be the unparalleled relations between all the members of the Mathews – Clemmins clan and their much extended family. I was pleased to see how the relationship continue to evolve and develop over time. I love how the series provides us with the opportunity to catch up on Tess and Tom (No More Wasted Time) and of course Shayla and John’s (Shayla’s Story) lives.
It is also one the extraordinary series of books that convincingly illustrates that love is obtainable no matter how brief the encounter is. As always I thought the writing was impeccable. The author never falters in wielding a story that epitomizes an astounding fated love.
Every single one of the books have these amazing elements and The Perfect Someday is not any different. Don’t think that because of the similarities and the repeat characters that they are too much alike. Every single one of these novels is distinct and just as engaging.
Just as the first two books I loved this book and am very much looking forward to see how the “anti-marriage” Mathews sibling – JC eat her words and finally meet her match.
