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 fiancee 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”?
What I thought…
I have really enjoyed this book! It the story of a young woman (Lucy) who wonders what is going to happen to her Girls home after she loses funding. She strikes up a deal with a Ex-NFL hero (Alex) who needs Lucy to get elected…Its kind of The Proposal meets Sweet Home Alabama…but with a Christian perspective.
Throughout Save the Date the “agreement” causes a roller coaster of emotions, not only between Alex and Lucy, but Alex and his brother, Lucy and Matt, plus her Grandmother and deceased Father she never knew.
Lucy finds her self surprised when the things don’t turn out the way she assumed they would. Lucy seeks the Lord’s guidance through the book…and finds her self surprised at who else is seeking the Lord as well!
At the beginning Save the Date talks about how Lucy runs a girls home for young women who have been in the foster care system, but are now 18 and have no where to go…expect Saving Grace. Saving Grace is a big part of this book and I really like that, all too often I read a book where the main woman is kind of a blur…who is she, does she have friends? a job? Jenny B. Jones did a wonderful job making Lucy feel like a friend! Alex…I actually really liked Alex from the beginning. He was rough and hard around the edges, but I knew something great was on its way! He’s a twin, which I like, since I have twins.
Save the Date is funny, Witty, and keeps you wondering what is going to happen…all the while surprising you! I would highly recommend this book!!ISBN: 1595545395
