Book Spotlight and a Giveaway! Imperfectly Beautiful by Diony George

Imperfectly Beautiful

Imperfectly Beautiful by Diony George
Paperback, 180 pages
Published April 28th 2012 by Createspace

At 1:30 am, in New York City, Regan Wright is ripped out of a sound sleep with a jolt - her heart thuds in her ears and her face feels flushed. Straining to hear anything out of the ordinary, she fumbles to turn on the bedside lamp. Nothing seems out of place. Suddenly her stomach twists in knots - it's her identical twin, Rebecca. Something is terribly wrong...

Though twins, Rebecca and Regan couldn't be more different. One chose a high-profile career in fashion design, the other chose to be a wife and stay-at-home mom, but neither is truly happy and they must discover why. When a serial killer strikes nearby, and the victim looks eerily similar to the twins, they fear that one of them could be next.

My thoughts about Imperfectly Beautiful ~~

Imperfectly Beautiful is a very enjoyable, quick read. I've always been fascinated with the connection that I hear some twins experience. One twin can 'feel' when the other one is in pain or experiences something. This story gives us a little taste of what that's like.

The twins, Ragan and Rebecca, go away for a nice relaxing mini-vacation, to get away from issues and problems in their respective lives. They reconnect with each other and are able to figure out what is really important in their lives.

That is all well and good but there is also a serial killer out there, who is targeting women who look just like Ragan and Rebecca. Are their lives in danger? Will they be safe?

I enjoyed this quick read (even with the few typos I found ~ I just need to get over that) and I look forward to reading more of this author's work.

About the author

I'm a wife, mother of seven, and grandmother of two originally from Alaska, but currently live in Utah with my family and now consider myself a true city girl at heart. I will readily admit I don't miss the giant mosquitoes or the cold and long, dark winters way up North, but I absolutely miss the fresh seafood. Fish and chips made with fresh-caught halibut is my favorite!

My beginning as a writer started in elementary school when a poem I had written for a contest was chosen as a winner, set to music, and sung by the whole school at an assembly. I wrote my first picture book, 11 pages long in fifth grade as an assignment, bound it myself and have read it to my children several times. The next book I wrote, I was in eighth grade, 48 pages long with photograph's and was a memoir.

The first edition of my first published novel, Torn Apart was released in July 2008, when I was 42 years old, the second edition under a new publisher was released nationally in February of 2009. So...never give up on your dream of writing. I'm currently working on my third novel.

When I'm not imagining a new plot-line or typing frantically away at my computer, I love to spend time with my family, read (my favorite genre is romantic suspense) travel, cook or bake something delicious, sew, scrap-book, or work on crafts.

The best advice I would give on how to become a better writer is to read and write everyday!
