Publisher's Summary

In the course of her everyday work, career-driven assistant district attorney Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters and works determinedly to ensure that a legal system with too many loopholes keeps these criminals behind bars. But when her own five-year-old son, Nathaniel, is traumatized by a sexual assault, Nina and her husband, Caleb, a quiet and methodical stone mason, are shattered, ripped apart by an enraging sense of helplessness in the face of a futile justice system that Nina knows all too well.
In a heartbeat, Nina's absolute truths and convictions are turned upside down, and she hurtles toward a plan to exact her own justice for her son - no matter the consequence, whatever the sacrifice.

Not her best

I do not think this is Picoult's best book. I ALMOST stopped listening to it after the first couple of hours. What didn't I like? It spent way too much time at the beginning talking about what the mother was thinking about the terrible situation. But most of all, the main character, the mother, just wasn't very likeable to me. I really didn't like her, I didn't like how she reacted to things, she seemed selfish and at times her decisions didn't even make sense. Quite a few times I would think, "I can't believe you are acting like that." I also thought some of the situations were a bit too extreme and unbelievable. I did listen to the end just to find out what happened.

Just ok

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I can't say I hated it, it was entertaining and there were times I didn't want to stop listening, but it was far from My sister's keeper. I've enjoyed Picoult's books, although MSK and House rules were my favorites. It wasn't realistic court room drama, at times making me think "really?? I doubt day times soaps would be that misleading". That being said, if you like love triangles, parental struggles and trying to walk a mile in another woman's shoes, you won't be wasting a credit.

If you’ve listened to books by Jodi Picoult before, how does this one compare?

It really doesn't and I've read/listened to several.

Do you think Perfect Match needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

uhh, nope.

Any additional comments?

Go for My sister's keeper, House rules or even nineteen minutes before this one.
