Goodreads: You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year with the most unlikely bride and groom. Save the date . . . and say your prayers.
When funding for Lucy’s non-profit job is pulled, she is determined to find out why. Enter Alex Sinclair, former professional football star and heir to Sinclair Enterprises the primary donor to Lucy’s non-profit organization.
Both Lucy and Alex have something the other desperately wants.
Alex has it all . . . except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancee in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn’t quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart and her future on the line.
“Save the Date” is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams . . . and maybe even a date.
Ope’s Opinion: This book definitely has God at it’s center. It is not preachy, but obvious. It was fun to watch the characters develop their relationships with each other and with God at the same time.
You know how this book is going to end from the beginning, but is fun to go down the path. At the beginning, Lucy seems to be more clumsy then I felt was realistic. I think the author was trying to show her development in her confidence, but I felt it was a little too exaggerated for me. I guess that is petty.
I am going to pass this book on my daughters mother-in-law. She likes Christian Fiction, like I do.
I will be looking for more of Jenny B. Jones books to read.
