Book Review: Save The Date

I really enjoyed reading Save The Date by Jenny B. Jones.  It's about a southern girl named Lucy who runs a non-profit home for girls.  Unfortunately Lucy doesn't have the money to keep her home open for much longer.  I loved Lucy, she was independent, funny, and a total klutz which made her easy to relate to.

Lucy is propositioned by Alex Sinclair, a former football star who is running for Congress.  Both Lucy and Alex need something from each other.  Alex needs votes to win and Lucy needs money for her home.  Alex tells Lucy he will fund her girls home if she will pose as his fiancĂ©e until after the election.

Save The Date follows Lucy and Alex through their fake engagement.  They have to learn how to get along well enough to fool others.  While "dating" they help each other through crises of family and faith and learn a lot about each other and what love really is.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, especially those who enjoy modern Christian romance.
