Fake or Real?
Wade Roberts, widower and the town's veterinarian, is happy with his single life. After losing his wife to cancer, he vows to never open up his heart again to that kind of pain. Unbeknownst to Wade, the elderly ladies in town have set up a "blog" on Facebook encouraging all the single women to seek out Wade in hopes of helping him move on to find love again. When he walks into his clinic only to be bombarded with a room full of "sick" animals and their gorgeous owners, he knows something is up. He receives baked goodies, texts, and love notes in the mail as well. In order to get the ladies off his back, he enlists the help of his "pal" and sister's best friend Arden.
Wade's request couldn't come at a better time for Arden. Her wedding/party planning business is suffering due to a runaway groom. In order to land a new, high profile client Arden agrees to Wade's plan of having a fake relationship. When the client voices concerns over Arden's business being the best fit for her daughter, Arden blurts out she's engaged too. One thing leads to another, then Wade gives Arden an engagement ring and the fake doesn't feel so fake anymore. At least not to her....
Fake relationship to fake engagement to fake real relationship to ??? I absolutely LOVED it! Humorous, snarky, heart wrenching, and swoon worthy all entwined into one awesome story. This is my favorite Jennifer Shirk novel! Although it's the second novel in the series, it can be read as a stand alone and you won't miss any of the nuances. I also loved how Arden incorporated the dogs from the shelter into a wedding and a Valentine fundraiser. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
