The Convenient Groom


GIVEAWAY

HUNTER, DENISE
THE CONVENIENT GROOM

Kate wrote the book on fiding the right mate. But she couldn't write the chapter on true love...until now.

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 expert 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. They might just be able to pull this off. But Kate has one crucial question: what's in it for him?

Could it be that God's plans for "Dr. Kate" don't align perfectly with her to-do list? And will Kate realize that the truest love she'll ever receive can only come from God?

An inspiring tale of enduring love set in romantic Nantucket.

My Review:

I'm a late bloomer when it comes to Denise Hunter's novels so I'm slowly tackling her backlist. After all the online discussions about the Hallmark movie based on this book I decided it was time to catch up on this 2008 classic.

If I had to sum up this story in a few words it would be -- tenderness and angst. Usually in equal doses but I'll admit to feeling more trepidation on Lucas's behalf even as I swooned over his unwavering love for Kate. And she is blithely unaware even thought she's celebrated as a relationship counselor extraordinaire! But that's 'cause Kate hardly ever looks up from her to-do lists to take any notice. Their journey to a happily-ever-after is plagued with misunderstandings which kept my heart all aflutter as I urged them on. Sweet, tender, infuriating -- with plenty of toe-curling -- make this a scrumptious romance.

  7. I've only read a few of Denise's books, but like you, am trying to catch up. I watched the Hallmark movie of The Convenient Groom and liked it. I imagine the book is even better!

  13. I've read her first 2 Summer Harbor novels, but I think that's all . Need to get my hands on the third one of that series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two. I'm sure this one will be no different!
