Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make
a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it?
convenient spouse. It’s a match made . . . well, not quite in heaven, but for a temporary arrangement, it couldn’t be better. Except the longer Lanie and Nick spend as husband and wife, the more the connection between them begins to seem real. Maybe this modern fairy tale really could come true . . .
So I have not read a book by this author previously, but after this one I think I’ve fallen in love with the town of Charmed, Texas. This book was a great read; it was pretty quick for me, but I think that was mostly because I just didn’t want to put the book down. And it ended with a little sneak peek at the next story from Charmed and I cannot wait to read that one too!
This book follows Lance Barrett; her aunt that raised her was on was sick and on her deathbed, so she told her that she was married and described this man to her. All in the hope that she could give her aunt some peace of mind knowing that Lance is being “taken care of”. Nick happens to meet Lanie by chance and she realizes that he is the perfect match to the description of who she told her Aunt Ruby that she was married to. So she convinces him to pose as her husband, and well I think we can figure out how the rest of this trip goes for them.
I was a big fan of the author’s writing style. She had enough comedic relief in the story so that it wasn’t a monotonous, or too serious, drama; but there was enough intensity that the book seemed really fast paced. The romance between Nick and Lanie is of course kind of expected, but the way they got to that point was so much fun and just made for an enjoyable experience for the reader. Like I said, I haven’t previously read any books by Sharla Lovelace, but I can’t wait to find more to enjoy!
