Emma Tate has just moved on from one fiancé, so when she announces a sudden engagement to her lifelong buddy Jake Sawyer, every busybody in Mayfair goes into high alert. Of course, no one but Jake and Emma know the real reason they’re getting married—so Emma’s dying father will have a chance to walk her down the aisle.
But while Jake and Emma move forward with their plan—and frantically plan an October wedding—it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications . . . the biggest being their true feelings for each other.
With dubious friends, deliriously thrilled parents, and a town that won’t keep its nose out of their business, Emma and Jake will have a lot to contend with if they’re going to pull this off. The real question is: Who wants this wedding more, Emma’s dad . . . or Emma?
My heart went out to the main character, Emma. I found her motivation to be believable. The emotions she wrestled with were authentic and real, too. Her romance with Jake was exquisitely sweet, too.
This book was a perfect blend of sweet, funny, and thought-provoking. I truly enjoyed it and its message.
(I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.)
My Rating: 5 stars!
