Picture Imperfect

Title: Picture Imperfect
Series: Roseville Romances #1
Author: Alyssa Roat & Hope Bolinger
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink
Release Date: November 5, 2021
Genre: Christian, Contemporary Romance

Can a struggling career woman and a procrastinating artist save a beloved nonprofit?

Aspiring novelist Caroline Penn expected a promotion, not a picture book assignment. But when her employer, the non-profit Helping Hope, runs into financial trouble, this book might be the solution. With the company struggling to stay afloat, she and the illustrator will need to collaborate on a strict deadline—no problem for a workaholic like Caroline, right?

Andy Jackson, a “starving” artist, pays the bills by taking on graphic design gigs, but his perfectionism gets in the way. If only he could focus on a project for once, perhaps he could achieve his dream to make art for children for a living.

When the two are thrust together to create a book, Caroline can’t seem to write for children, and Andy can’t meet a deadline to save his life. As time ticks down to release day, the two must face their pasts and insecurities. If they can avoid strangling one another for long enough, they may just bring to the table what the other is missing.

If not, the fate of their careers—and a beloved nonprofit—hangs in the balance.


Maisie appeared to absorb his words for a moment. Then she nodded and her face lit up again. “Feeling daunted?”

“You could say that.” He chuckled.

“I’ll tell you someone else who was hesitant about a big task before him.” She gestured to the Moses mural. “Imagine standing in front of that Red Sea. Or in front of Pharaoh telling him to let the Israelites go. No wonder he came up with a thousand excuses as to why he wasn’t up for the task.”

And yet, all those things still happened. The Red Sea parted, and the Israelites were freed.

Hope lit a beacon in his chest.
