When wedding planner Anne Hawthorne meets George Laurence, she thinks she's found the man of her dreams. But when he turns out to be a client, her "dream" quickly turns into a nightmare. Will Anne risk her heart and career on this engaging Englishman? George came to Louisiana to plan his employer's wedding and pose as the groom. But how can he feign affection for a supposed fiancee when he's so achingly attracted to the wedding planner? And what will happen when Anne discovers his role has been Stand-In Groom only? Will she ever trust George again? Can God help these two believers find a happy ending?
This was an enjoyable and pleasant read...a perfect summer's day romance to read! I found the storyline fun and entertaining and the characters enjoyable as well. There were some moments where I felt the story jumped ahead of itself a bit, but overall it was great for reading by the pool while my kids were swimming!
