Perfectly Arranged JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Perfectly Arranged by Liana George, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Perfectly Arranged
Title: Perfectly Arranged 
Series: The Hopeful Hearts #1 
Author: Liana George 
Publisher: Scrivenings Press 
Release Date: October 26, 2021 
Genre: Contemporary Women's Fiction 

Professional organizer Nicki Mayfield is on her way to becoming the next Marie Kondo – if only she could find clients and make ends meet! While looking for new professional opportunities, Nicki’s also determined to sort out her personal life. Despite dealing with a mother who’s a prime candidate for Hoarders and battling her own doubts about marriage and parenting, Nicki is certain she can transform the chaos around her into order. 

When all hope seems lost, the eccentric socialite Katherine O’Connor enters Nicki’s world. Boosted by Ms. O’Connor’s desperate need for organizing help, Nicki pushes out of her comfort zone — in work, love, and life. Together they discover an unknown Chinese address on a business card. Determined to uncover the identity of the address and how it connected with the father her client hardly knew, Ms. O’Connor and Nicki embark on an adventure that takes them across the world. There, both women must break down the walls surrounding their hearts to help those who can’t help themselves. In doing so, Nicki and Ms. O’Connor learn that things and people aren’t always what they seem, that hidden treasures lead to new beginnings, and that sometimes — surprisingly — God has things perfectly arranged.

I'm hanging up my label maker.

While I'd been certain I would be the next Marie Kondo, organizing superstar, the lack of clients and shortage of funds in my bank account tells a different story. I grab another moving box and glide the packing tape across the bottom to secure it. The screech of the gun as it connects the two flaps resounds as the truth flashes in front of me. 

After three years of blood, sweat, and tears, I've failed at the one thing I'd believed I was meant to do. 

When I open a side desk drawer that holds a rainbow assortment of alphabetically arranged files, my heart flutters at the sight of everything in perfect order - just the kind of thing that would make my mother anxious. 

I wince. Mom. Without a job, I have no other choice but to move back home with her. 

As if on cue, her familiar blue Honda pulls up outside my window. 

Seriously, what else could go wrong today? 

Plowing my way through the heap of boxes, I grab my coat and purse from the chair and dash toward the door. Before I can step outside and hide my career woes, my mother walks in. 

“Nicki, I ...” Mom closes the door and studies the room. “What's going on in here?” 

I survey the boxes scattered around the tiny cubicle. “Packing?” 

“I see that, but why?” 

“I’m closing up shop.” I dig my shoe into the stained beige carpet. “Bridgeport’s Organizing Business of the Year is no longer.” 

(1) winner will receive a copy of Perfectly Arranged plus a travel kit (not shown) including a $25 Amazon gift card, RDF passport wallet, packing cube, travel journal, luggage tag, packing tips, packing checklist!
