Save the Date
Update [1/27/11]: Congratulations, Alanna! Enjoy Save the Date!
What a great book! I really enjoyed Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones. Alex needs a wife to boost his ratings before the election. Lucy needs money to save her home for girls aging out of the foster care system. They're a totally unlikely match, but they need each other's help.
This was the first book I've read by Jenny B. Jones, and I loved her writing style. The plot moved quickly and Jones interjected lots of humor throughout. The characters were truly likable ... even as they dealt with personal struggles from their past. The author did a fantastic job of weaving the character of God throughout the entire book as well. It was a bit predictable (as many romance novels are) but I liked it anyway. Overall, it was a super-quick read, funny, and purely enjoyable.
Plus, the good news is that Thomas Nelson sent me an extra copy for some unknown reason. So I'm going to pass it along to one of you! So what do you need to do? Follow the blog and comment on this post by Wednesday, January 26 @ 11:59 pm. That's it. Easy enough, right? (I will only ship in the US.) Good luck!
About the Book
When Alex and Lucy pick out wedding invitations, they wonder if they can be printed in vanishing ink.
Former NFL star Alex Sinclair is a man who has it all--except the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancée in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn't quite what he seems, Lucy will find her heart on the line--and maybe even her life. When God asks Alex and Lucy to scrap their playbook and follow his rules, will they finally say, "I do"?
About the Author
Jenny B. Jones writes Christian Fiction with equal parts wit, sass, and untamed hilarity. When she’s not writing, she’s living it up as a high school teacher in Arkansas. Since she has very little free time, she believes in spending her spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuit such as watching E!, going to the movies and inhaling large buckets of popcorn, and writing her name in the dust on her furniture.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's Book Sneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
