Book Review: Save the Date

From the Publisher:
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"?

My Review:

This book was just too cute!  I had heard great things about Jenny B. Jones and had high expectations before I even received this book to review, but let me tell you…it met everyone single one. 

There were so many things that I loved about this book!  First, I really enjoyed the plot of an engagement for convenience and how the reader gets to see the relationship between Lucy and Alex blossom from “pretend and for show” to something meaningful, real and sweet.  Plus, I liked the faith element and how the characters had to grow in their faith in God, in order to overcome their past and create a relationship for their future.  But perhaps what I enjoyed the most was how funny this book was.  From Lucy and her Lord of the Rings obsession, to Clare and her assistant Julian, to the witty dialogue between the main characters.  There were moments where I was giggling to myself and others were I was laughing out loud.  This book was overall a super, cute story with memorable moments and characters and I loved it.

Funny?  Yep.  Sweet?  Very.  Romantic?  Oh yea.  And entertaining?  Definitely! I’d recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a light-hearted and fun read that will leave you with warm-fuzzies inside and a smile on your face.

Many thanks to Booksneeze for sending me this complimentary copy for my review! Sara’s rating: 5 out of 5 stars
