Nicki’s tasked with making New Hope the perfect place for orphaned children.
So why has everything gone wrong?
Six weeks after leaving China, Nicki Mayfield returns to complete two critical tasks: restore order at New Hope Orphanage and re-connect with the little girl who stole her heart. However, between a stubbornly stone walling supervisor, missing documents, and personal tragedy, Nicki faces challenges at every turn. Is she the best person to bring order – and longevity – to the place these children call home? Then, with the help of an unexpected ally, Nicki makes a life-altering decision that upends her well-planned life and the lives of those around her. Will she lose it all, or has she found the way to save what matters most?

About the Author
More from Liana
Have you ever eaten at a Chinese restaurant and taken a fortune cookie with you when you left? Yeah, me too. For the longest time, I always associated these Pac-Man shaped treats with Chinese food and by extension, Chinese culture.
I was wrong.
The tsujiura senbei,” or “fortune cracker,” actually originated in Japan and was brought over to the United States sometime between the late 1800s and early 1900s by immigrants. Japanese bakers first began selling and making these crackers in California and Hawaii. With their unique taste and finger-sized slip of paper printed with a pithy fortune or aphorism, they quickly became a hit.
Today, the fascination with these cookies is still at an all-time high, but the ingredients have changed. Originally, they were made with miso and sesame flavoring but now they use butter and vanilla to give it that sweet taste you and I are so familiar with.
So, why am I telling you all this?
Because my novel, Perfectly Placed, book 2 in The Hopeful Heart Series, begins with the main character, Nicki Mayfield, breaking into a fortune cookie and discovering a proverb that will motivate her and move her to action. What was written on that tiny slip of paper? There’s only one way to find out. Grab a copy of Perfectly Placed – and a cookie or two – and start reading!

Perfectly Placed is the second installment from Liana George’s Hopeful Heart series. I have not read the first book in the series, Perfectly Arranged, but feel that it would have been best to start the series with book one. After trying to catch up with happened previously, I enjoyed reading Nicki’s story and thought it was a pretty read. It had a lot going on – mystery, suspense, adventure, twists and turns. It, also, played a lot on my emotions at times. I liked it.
I am giving Perfectly Placed four stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean and inspiring fiction. I look forward to the next book from the Hopeful Heart series to see what happens next.
I received a digital copy of Perfectly Placed from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
Sounds like a good story.ReplyDelete
