Up-and-coming screenwriter Cara Kennedy has the biggest meeting of her career in two days—but for now, she's on vacation. Her short trip to Ireland is all planned out:
1. See the sites around Dublin
2. Don't think about her jerk of an ex she was supposed to spend this trip with
3. Relax with some Irish whiskey
4. Propose to a sexy Irish musician on Leap Day
5. Wake up married
Wait, those last two things weren't on her list…
A whirlwind trip to Ireland is supposed to end with a suitcase full of wool sweaters and souvenir pint glasses—not a husband you only just met!
After one-too-many whiskeys, fledgling screenwriter Cara Kennedy takes a page out of someone else's script when she gets caught up in the Irish tradition of women proposing on Leap Day. She wakes the next morning with a hot guy in her bed and a tin foil ring on her finger. Her flight is in four hours, and she has the most important meeting of her career in exactly two days—nothing she can do except take her new husband (and his adorable dog) back to LA with her and try to untangle the mess she's made of her life…
Perfect for fans of:
• Friends to lovers romance
• Sexy Irish brogue
• Sensual, slow burn romance
• When everything goes wrong, but it's so right
Walker (Happy Singles Day) transports readers to Dublin in this uproarious romantic comedy about accidental newlyweds attempting to divorce. Recently heartbroken Cara Kennedy decides to go on the three-day vacation she and her ex had booked in Ireland on her own. Upon arriving, her luggage is lost, she's splashed by mud, and she realizes her jerk ex-boyfriend had the same idea when she sees him outside her hotel. The only silver lining is Finn Maguire, her Uber driver turned tour guide, and his sexy Irish brogue. Finn invites Cara to a Leap Day celebration at a pub where she learns the Irish tradition of women proposing to men on February 29. It's this, combined with a lot of Irish whiskey, that leads Cara and Finn to wake up married the next morning. With Cara unable to delay her return home, Finn comes with her to Los Angeles to annul their marriage there but it's a long process, leaving plenty of time for the pair to grow closer. Walker infuses the story's first half with wonderful Irish charm, but shifts to a much slower pace once the characters reach L.A. Still, with references to classic rom-coms lending a nostalgic feel throughout, there's plenty for romance readers to adore. Agent: Pamela Harty, the Knight Agency.
I loved the premise, and as a whole the book was good, but sometimes the characters’ self-evaluations bogged the story down. Great HEA!
