Close Enough to Perfect is the heartwarming and heartbreaking story of Chris and Al Noyes, married for twenty-eight years until tragedy hit on a commercial airline flight. The story speaks of soulmates, happy places, mental illness, adventure, and sorrow. A true story of love, grief, resilience, and spirit told with brutal honesty and emotion.

Engaging and lively, Close Enough to Perfect takes the reader on a raucous and rollicking journey that juxtaposes unabashed fun with loss. Christine Noyes artfully interweaves zany life happenings with her own true, though nearly unbelievable, love story. A stunning story!

I loved this book! A Picture of Pretense has so much going for it – romance, intrigue, suspense, friendship, family dynamics and so much more. Christine Noyes is a skilled author in creating a story that makes for so much enjoyable reading. I highly recommend A Picture of Pretense for young and older readers and my hope is to see this as a made-for-TV movie.
