I received a copy of A Wedding Date in Hot Springs, Arkansas from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Sometimes there’s a thin line between love and hate. . .
Violet Matthews has always been unlucky in love, but it never bothered her until her little sister’s wedding. The idea of facing the event alone is more than she can stand, and she’s determined to have a date. Online dating, speed dating. . .she doesn’t care what it takes. And when that fails, she hires a matchmaker. Leave it to a professional, right?
Wrong. When Violet arrives for lunch with her match, she is horrified. She’s been paired with Jackson Stratford, an old college classmate. She didn’t like him then and she doesn’t like him now. But Jackson has a plan: he’ll be her “boyfriend” at the wedding if she’ll be his “girlfriend” at his high school reunion. And no one will be the wiser.
As they go on a series of dates designed to make them look like a real couple, they’re surprised by how much fun they have together. But when the past rears its ugly head, Violet and Jackson find themselves on shaky ground.
Can they turn their faux relationship into something real, or are there some wounds that cannot heal?
I picked this book because I live in Arkansas and have been to most of the places this book talks about. I could relate to Violet completely. I recently changed directions and opened my own small business. This was a good easy read that I really enjoyed.
