REVIEW: The Convenient Groom by Denise Hunter

In Denise Hunter’s “The Convenient Groom,” Dr. Kate has just been jilted by her fiancé at the altar. Fearing the backlash to her career as a marriage counselor, and hoping to keep negative press at a minimum as her first book is about to release, Dr. Kate puts an insane plan into action. She walks down the aisle with Lucas Wright: her landlord, who is secretly in love with her. He agrees to give her one year of his life to save her career. But unbeknownst to Kate, Luc is hoping that 12 months will make her fall for him.

Living together as a married couple is difficult when you’re only half pretending. But things certainly do change when you get to know a person and your feelings begin to change. Could it be that Dr. Kate’s orderly love advice is all hogwash? Could it be that Mr. Wright really is Mr. Right-for-her?

What a charming novel! Reading about these two falling in love was such a treat. The story was so tantalizing that I invested in the characters almost immediately and felt deeply for them as they experienced their ups and downs. This novel was a heart-warming way to spend a few hours.
