MY REVIEW:

Ah, yes. Every once in awhile a book comes along that I have been waiting for and anticipating with bated breath... "Save The Date" is one of these books! Jenny B. Jones went to the top of my favorite authors when she penned her wonderful YA series (especially with Bella Kirkwood), and then she delved into the Women's Fiction realm and I was hoping that she wouldn't lose the quick wit that I loved with her YA. Thankfully she didn't, in fact, her writing style just kept developing by leaps and bounds. So now "Save The Date" has finally shown up at my house and I am in heaven!!! Jenny introduces us to two amazingly unique characters that can't stand each other, but desperately need each other. Alex to win the public opinion's vote to secure his seat in Congress and Lucy needs financing for the non-profit girls home that she runs. Bring the two together and we have a fake engagement. Now, of course its a fun scenario and Jenny spares no humiliation of either party through their shenannigans, but the icing on this yummy cake is the incredible dialogue she weaves between Alex and Lucy. Darts are thrown back and forth, and swords are drawn and parried as I enjoyed every page. This book is a winner and sheer delight to read - thank you, Jenny, for another brilliant book!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



I write Christian fiction with a few giggles, quite a bit of sass, and lots of crazy. My novels include the Katie Parker Production series and So Not Happening. I would also like to take credit for Twilight , but somewhere I think I read you’re not supposed to lie.

When I’m not typing my heart out (or checking email), I teach at a super-sized high school in Arkansas.

My students are constantly telling me how my teaching changes their lives and turned them away from drugs, gangs, and C-SPAN.

Okay, that’s not exactly true.

Some facts that are true include:

I've always been refined!

A. I got my camera confiscated by big boys with guns at the American Embassy in Europe this past summer. O la la!

B. I once worked in a seed mill office and cleaned out mice on a regular basis. Ew.

C. I’m a former drama teacher.

D. I didn’t pass my drivers test the first time. Or the second…

E. I attract stray animals like a magnet.

F. I used to assemble and test paint ball guns for a local factory...

Since my current job leaves me with very little free time, I believe in spending my spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuits such as:

-watching E!

-updating my status on Facebook

-catching Will Ferrell on YouTube and

-writing my name in the dust on my furniture

I’d love to hear about you, so drop me a note. Or check me out on Facebook.



ABOUT THE BOOK

You’re invited to the engagement of the most unlikely couple of the year.

When the funding for Lucy’s non-profit job is pulled, she is determined to find out why. Enter Alex Sinclair, former professional football star and heir of Sinclair Enterprises—the primary donor to Lucy’s Saving Grace organization. Alex Sinclair has it all . . . except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Both Lucy and Alex have something the other wants. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancĂ©e in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn’t quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart – and her future – on the line.



Save the Date is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams . . . and maybe even a date.

This sounds like such a fun read. The last important date I had to save was a friend's wedding a couple years ago. Otherwise it was a memorial service, but since that was for family, I don't really consider it "save the date." Attendance was mandatory.

Oh, and I'm a follower.

How about a save the date for an upcoming dance convention?? Before that it was a get together with friends - who live in three different states. I really enjoy Jenny's book. This one sounds like it will not be exception to my previous experience with her writing!

Sounds like a fun book. Is it bad that all my save the dates revolve around my daughter. Dance or softball ugh, I need a save the date for me LOL.

Jenny B said...
