I intended to read this book one day next week; however, when I took a sneak peak by reading the prologue, I found myself entranced and read the entire story last night. Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones was such a delight! I'm thrilled I had the privilege to read and review this sweet book. (And secretly giddy the author visited my blog!)
The characters were so endearing to me. I could hear Alex Sinclair's deep voice with assertory statements, and Lucy Wiltshire's pithy retorts to his overly-confident demands. (Although, I'm gonna tell you...the girl on the cover of this book does NOT match the Lucy in my mind). Claire Deveraux is the epitome of Southern Matriarch. Her sidekick, Julian, steals the scenes. He's hilarious! Did I mention all of Lucy's Sci-Fi friends? We all have a Sanjay in our lives, and it was fun to meet him on the pages of Save the Date.
Set in Charleston, a town in which I'm very familiar, I was completely enraptured by the story. Lucy runs a non-profit organization, who has learned her funding is about to be cut. Alex Sinclair is a wealthy former-athlete who has just thrown his hat into the ring of politics. Those seemingly unrelated incidents throw these two people together, and make for a fabulous story.
