From New York Times Bestselling Author GINNY BAIRD, a new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy…
My Best Friend’s Bride
Relationship expert Jillian Jamison is in a bind. While her first book was a successful bestseller, her second tome tanked. Now, her publisher wants a spin on the third book, Married Love: Keeping Those Home Fires Burning, that’s up close and personal. With financial pressures mounting and sole responsibility for her aging grandfather, Jill feels forced into wedlock in order to appease her publisher and keep her job. But it’s only for a year, and she's devised a plan with her long-term friend. When Brad backs out due to problems with his real girlfriend Susan, Jill fears she’ll be left standing alone at the altar. Then Brad offers a solution: Jill can marry the one man on earth she despises...his handsome best friend.
Hunter Delaney is a confirmed bachelor and that’s how he likes it. When his best friend, Brad, approaches him with an unusual contract, he’s determined to run for the hills, especially since the name on the paperwork is international celebrity Jillian Jamison, the woman who spurned him in high school. Hunter would rather do anything than spend twelve months of his life saddled with her. But he has a soft spot for Brad, who’s in a predicament, so Hunter agrees to consider Brad’s proposal. When Hunter learns he’s getting passed over for a promotion because the family-oriented client only wants to work with someone who’s married, this clinches the deal.
Hunter is “in” for as long as he can stand it. Jill is not thrilled with the arrangement either. But really, what choice does she have? Even if it has to look authentic on the outside, between her and Hunter it’s just pretend. Besides, she reasons rationally, she’s already got the dress...
A Must Read
Jill is a single woman who has the sole responsibility of taking care of her elderly grandfather's finances. Jill, by no means, minds but just isn't at place at the time to continue. Her publisher asks Jill to pen a third book and getting it published would secure Jill's ability to continue to pay for her Grandfather's finances. She has already written a bestseller but her second book did not succeed. She felt forced to wed so she came up with a wedding contract. Her childhood friend, Brad, was to sign the contract. The contract consisted of them getting married and it lasting for a year. As the "wedding" was approaching, Brad backed out and asked his friend, Hunter, to step in. Hunter and Jill do not have such good history and she is not pleased.
Hunter is also in a bind. He is trying to secure a deal at work in order to get a promotion. Hunter finds out one day that he is being bypassed for the promotion to someone who is married. The contract Jill prepared would also benefit Hunter, therefore, he agrees. They hurriedly marry and Hunter even takes her on a honeymoon to Niagra Falls.
What neither realize is that are falling for each other. Another thing they do not realize is that someone is watching them as they feel that the "marriage" is a little sketchy and want to out them.
Do they get caught? Does their "marriage" survive? Are Jill and Hunter destined to be husband and wife? What about their careers?
Ginny Baird's, My Best Friends Bride, is sweet, a little mysterious, and has plenty of romance. Ginny knocked this out of the ballpark. It keeps you wanting more and rooting for Jill and Hunter. This is definitely a must read book.
