The Convenient Groom by Denise Hunter is in A Nantucket Love Story Series, and I really enjoyed this romance based in Nantucket. Kate Lawrence is a wide-known marriage counselor who is about to be thrust in the national spotlight with the publishing of her book on marriage. The release of her book is to coincide with her wedding, but only hours before her wedding her fiancée informs her he is in love with another woman. At this time Lucas Wright comes up with a plan to save her book sales by marrying her. Little does she know, their relationship may change from a business arrangement to something more.
I liked this book and the overall concept of it. I have read other books in the past where individuals get married for reasons of saving jobs or putting on good appearances for others, but I liked that, in this book, Lucas Wright had feelings for Kate prior to their wedding arrangement. Also, there weren’t any real reasons for either of these individuals to dislike one another, as they learned after being married for a short period of time. I think the other books in this series will be fun reads since I liked the setting of the book and also the author’s writing. It was not “preachy” but it was clear throughout the book the strong faith of Kate and Lucas.
