Book Review: Save the Date
Jenny B. Jones writes a sure winner with Save the Date! We all have our thoughts and feelings about politicians, but Lucy seems to find fault with just about anyone who is among the wealthy and when her dream is about to be shut down cold her anger deepens.
The book begins to get funny when Lucy arrives at a fancy party trying to coerce board members into keeping the funding for her non-profit organization. Enter Alex Sinclair, wealthy and a politician and handsome as well, but all Lucy can remember is how he treated her in high school.
Of all the luck, Alex steps into the picture to save the day at the same time that Lucy's ex comes back into her life. But is Alex saving his day or Lucy's? When two people want something sometimes they can help each other, but at a cost.
Lucy is to become Alex's fiance in exchange for him saving her girl's home. The hilarity begins as Lucy tries to fit into a world where she just can't seem to get it right!
This book is a Christian romance and was a very fun, quick read, full of spunk and grit. I would like to add that a Christian book does not necessarily mean a lot of preaching but it does mean a cleanly written book that you can pass along to a teenager without fear, and that's exactly what this book is. A great book to curl up with on a cold winter night, nothing too heavy here except for fun and romance!
