She wrote the book--literally--on finding the right mate. But does she really understand what love's about?
Five hours before her Nantucket beach wedding--and on the eve of her big book launch--celebrity marriage counselor Kate Lawrence has everything in place.
Everything, that is, but the groom. She might not have a career, either, when her nationwide audience finds out their marriage guru has been left at the altar.
Enter Lucas Wright, who offers to stand in for the missing husband-to-be and marry her. Kate's desperate enough to agree--although she's sure this Mr. Wright is completely wrong for her. But can they pull it off? And why would Lucas marry her in the first place?
Could it be that "Dr. Kate" doesn't know the first thing about love?
An inspiring tale of enduring love set in romantic Nantucket.
Dr. Kate, expert on marriage and famous author and couselor, is about to get married. But at the last minute, her soon to be husband backs out and leaves her standing at the alar about a few hours before the wedding itself. Lucus (who has loved her for a while unbeknowst to Kate), stands in as a "convenient groom" to help save her career. Of course, through any good romance book, Dr. Kate begins to fall in love with Lucus. Then the unexpected happens, and there is the threat of this marriage of convience ending.
So, I have now read this book twice, and it is agood book to come back to every once in a while. I really like how Denise Hunter adds little snippets of Dr. Kate's "book", because it always makes the chapter funny when you see neither main character using the advice. Then of course the best part for me is when Lucas moves Kate into his home (since they have to make it look like they are in love, and that it isn't a marriage of convience). I can imagine the face she makes as she realizes she, the neat freak on the verge of OCD, has married a messy bachelor with a large, hairy dog. Yep, makes me laugh just thinking about it!
The description of Nantucket is beautiful, makes you really want to go there.
Highly recommend the book, and it definitely a re-read.
