"Save the Date" by Jenny B. Jones (Review and Giveaway)

My Review

"Save the Date" by Jenny B. Jones is a book that I would recommend to any of my friends.  There isn't a dull moment between the first and last pages.  I would classify this book as a romantic comedy.  Lucy and Alex are the main characters in the book, but all of the other characters add to the book.  Lucy is a human services worker who runs a girls home.  She finds out that she needs money and prays for help.  Alex is a rich guy who is running for office and needs a boost to his image so he can win.  Lucy and Alex come up with a plan, but can they go through with the plan, and if they do, what will it mean for each of them? 

This book has me cracking a smile and giggling.  It also had me wondering if Lucy and Alex would get together or if Lucy and Matt would get back together.  This book actually has it all: a good mystery, love triangle, deceit and humor. I love a book with a good ending, and this book definitely fits into the category of having a good ending.

For Christians, you will learn the important lesson that God always has a plan for those that ask Him, even if no one else can see the plan.  You will also learn that Satan is the one that wants us to think bad of ourselves.  God only sees the good in each of us.  If you aren't Christian and don't mind a book that is Christian, you will enjoy the book as well.

Book Description

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"?
