There are two types of relationships: fake and real.
Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.
With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.
They head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.
Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?
Love, lies, business, and parents!
What a delightful book about two young people who have been in love for ten years and they break-up. Only hearts don’t always get the memo. Complications include telling the parents who happened to be best friends and business partners. Lies are hard to confess, and Kate and Chuck’s attempts to fess up about their break-up are thwarted time and time again.
A fun book that was hard to stop reading because I needed to know what happened next, which certainly wasn’t predictable! Loads of laughs and sweet scenes. My favorite was the Girl Scout bus ride!
Great characters and easy flowing format of telling the story alternating between Kate and Chuck’s viewpoints.

Fool Me Twice
Not sure if I have read this author before, her name is familiar. This was a manic kind of story, almost too busy for me to enjoy. Couldn’t agree with the couple for not coming clean with their parents from the start, but then we wouldn’t have the story. I sympathized with Chuck the whole time.
