From the publisher:
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"?

My Review:
Looking for fun, faith, football and some knock-off designer pumps? look no further than Jenny B. Jones's Save the Date. I absolutely loved every word of it. From the first zinger dished out by sassy Lucy to the tender moments with her "Han Solo" I was hooked. Lucy's a bit insecure, she's clumsy, she's a Trekkie and she's a size twelve (a ten if anybody asks). I challenge you to find a real girl who isn't at least one of these things...yeah doubtful. Lucy is a great heroine in a world where so much emphasis is placed on looks and not much else.

For me Christian fiction doesn't get much better than this. I was laughing the entire time and not a second of it was cheesy. In a word, Save the Date is brilliant. At times I wanted to pull my hair out and I even said out loud, "Just admit that you like each other already!" That is the best kind of story though, right? After that first moment when Alex and Lucy realize there could be more to their relationship than the show they are putting on for the public it just gets better and better.

If you're a true sucker for romance I'm sure you will agree that this is one of the better love stories out there. Save the Date is a light, entertaining read. I can't wait for There You'll Find Me which features Alex's baby sister, Finley! October 2011 are you here yet?
