Review: Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover's latest offering is a short, heartwarming and occasionally over-emotional novella that acts as a sequel to both Finding Cinderella (itself a companion novel and sequel to the Hopeless series,) and her stand-alone novel All Your Perfects. It's thanksgiving break, and Six is sad, and her boyfriend Daniel is sad because Six is sad, and it all comes down to the secret they have been keeping from everyone. And then it turns out that two strangers--Quinn and Graham--hold the key to helping them find their way.

There is no denying it, this is definitely a story written for diehard fans who want to revisit their favourite characters and know what happened next. In many respects it works as a lovely crossover, with each pair able to give the other exactly what they needed. Unfortunately, it also feels overly sweet in places and the situation tied up a bit too well. The characters themselves, particularly Daniel and Six, come across as one-dimensional and shallow, in spite of the huge life-altering event that happened to them, one which often feels as though it happened for shock value, and convenience of the plot, rather than showing the characters undertaking any kind of growth. Still, it is what it is, an eighty-eight page sequel for hardcore fans.

Recommended ... if you're a Colleen Hoover fan who cannot get enough.
