[Booksneeze] — Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones
Lucy Wiltshire is a strong, independent woman who runs a non-profit organization helping young women who have graduated out of “the system” and who are basically left on the streets. Alex Sinclair is a former NFL superstar who is now running for Congress. When unlikely pair find themselves needing each other — Lucy needing funds to help keep her organization open, and Alex needs something to make him more appealing to voters — a plan is hatched. If Lucy will pose as Alex’s fiancee, he will give her the money she needs.
Save the Date follows this duo through their fake engagement and the ups and downs it brings with it, everything from matters of the heart, matters of family and matters of faith.
I officially have a new book in my top ten favorite books of all time. This book made me laugh out loud. It made me cry at times. It made me think. And it sucked me into Lucy and Alex’s world. Whenever I would get a chance to sit down and read, I would easily read multiple chapters in one sitting… and I’d have to force myself to put it down.
As I said, it made me laugh with witty banter between the characters. I cried along with the characters as heartaches occurred. However, its in matters of faith and God that made me think about my own life and how I handled various situations. At the end of the book is a “Group Reading Guide,” that asks multiple thought-provoking questions based on the story. Its worth going through those questions and reflecting on each one. It takes the book from just being an entertaining piece of fiction to a wonderfully inspiring piece of literature.
Without a doubt, I recommend this book to anyone and everyone… heck, I can’t wait to read it again myself!!
