I started A December Bride on a Saturday evening.
Only put it down because I REALLY needed to go to sleep.
Picked it back up early Sunday morning and only put it down again because it was time for church and I was running late.. because I was reading…
I than picked it up again Sunday afternoon and VOILA.. finished it!
Why so fast? Because it was that good!!
I love reading about a character who has a little spunk, and spunk Layla has. A young girl who is trying to make it on her own, despite some past family issues, Layla takes what could be a really awkward and unplanned situation/proposal and makes the best of it. Although, what she thought would be something she could get rid of once the need was gone, she surprises herself by letting falling in love.
Seth Murphy on the other hand was hoping the unplanned situation/proposal would actually work in his favor. Showing kindness, love, and even some really cute moments, Seth wins Layla’s heart and proves something unexpected can turn out really great.
From the publisher:
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.
