Goodreads: A delightful romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Ginny Baird…
Successful Boston matchmaker and television personality Meredith Galanes’s reputation is on the line. During a guest appearance on a morning talk show, she’s broadsided by questions about her own romantic attachments, just as she’s trying to secure a syndication deal. Afraid to admit her love life is a total disaster, Meredith blurts out that she’s seriously involved with a very special man—a boatbuilder in Maine. She never expects that small slip to get spun into a story about her supposed engagement.
Or that the paparazzi will track the guy down…
Derrick Albright is laid-back about many things. Being hounded by the press about some imaginary engagement to a woman he’s only met once—and couldn’t stand—isn’t one of them. Then Meredith actually shows up at his cabin in Blue Hill, Maine, with an apology, a pot roast, and a proposal—play along until she secures her TV deal, and she’ll help him win back his ex.
It’s a simple plan, but if they have any chance of pulling it off, they’ll have to survive each other first…
Ope’s Opinion: This is the perfect book to be made into a Hallmark movie. It has everything you would want in a sweet romance. The way the story was written, I was rooting for Meredith and Derrick from the very begin.
You did not have to read the first one to know what was going on in this book, but I sure wish I had. I felt like I missed the beginning of Meredith and Derrick’s relationship – when they met and how they started off with some misunderstandings. I really enjoyed that this was not insta-love. I also liked that it was a sweet love story with no steamy scenes.
This ended the way you want your romance book to end – happy and lead into the next book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
