What started as a whim turned into an accidental---and very public---engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season---for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?
Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy - the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé - would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency - a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.
For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.
This is part of a novella series of bride stories for each month. This is the first one to come out and it is a fun read. I finished it quickly as it was entertaining, romantic, and only a little over 100 pages.
This is a novella so the story moves quickly, it would be fun to have Denise Hunter write a full length novel from this book and republish it so we could read more of the story. Seth and Layla are both likeable and enjoyable characters to read. It was also fun to read some characters from Denise Hunter's book Barefoot Summer in this book and see more of what has happened since that book.
Readers will enjoy the quick paced yet sweet love story. Denise Hunter is a talented author and if this is the first taste of her work you will be eager to read her other full length novels.
I received this e-book free from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
