Book Review: Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones



Lucy Wiltshire had her heart broken when she trusted in love. Now, her main focus in life is Saving Grace a home she runs for older teen-age girls who are too old to stay in the foster care system but not quite old enough to be out on their own. The girls depend on Lucy and Lucy depends on donations to keep the home open. When her funding is cut by more than half by Sinclair Enterprises and she faces the risk of losing the home Lucy doesn't know what she will do.
Alex Sinclair is a handsome former NFL star and heir to the Sinclair Enterprises. On the surface he appears to have it all except the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. After a picture of him and Lucy is leaked to the press, his numbers started to increase.
Lucy and Alex each has something the other needs. Alex makes Lucy a proposition. If she will pose as his fiancee he will give her the money she needs to keep Saving Grace running. Will Lucy be able to keep up the charade?
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is the first book that I have ever read by Jenny B Jones. It had a good story and was very funny. The author's descriptions were so vivid it was like you were right in the same room with Lucy and Alex. The characters were believable (though a few a little on the extreme side) and wrestled with real life issues. Aside form this being a cute, romantic book, it also has an important message for everyone. The message is about YOU being worthy. No matter what you or anyone else thinks you are a child of God and he loves you. "Tell the devil you are through listening. It's time to tell yourself, I'm good enough. It's time to claim the verse in the Bible that says you are a dearly loved child of God. You are adored. And you deserve love." The other message is one about forgiveness and being able to let go of the past and move forward with your life. It was a wonderful read and a very enjoyable book.
I received a complimentary copy of Save the Date from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation.
