Just like in the movie “The Ugly Truth” Kate as her list of goals and what constitutes the perfect man, but all that is shattered five hours before her wedding day when her fiancé calls to say he isn’t coming. This all seems pretty normal, people get stood up. But Kate is a relationship guru and her book all about how to find Mr. Right For You is getting dropped the same day as her wedding and this news could ruin her career. In steps Lucas Wright a furniture maker that rented out Kate her office space and seemingly her polar opposite. Kate thinks he is doing it to get relationship advice for his parents, Lucas is doing because he has loved her since they first met.
This book is a beautifully crafted love story and the second book of Denise Hunter’s Nantucket Love Story series. The plot may seem a little unreal but that doesn’t mean you are not rooting throughout the whole book for Kate to realize her Mr. Right is standing right in front of her, especially because all her preconceived notions of what love is are so off target. Like Lucas said, “You can’t schedule love”, and she tries.
The many obstacles put in their path from her ex-fiancé wanting her back, their “sham” marriage being revealed on public television by the girl Kate’s ex-fiancé left her for, the rocky and turbulent state of her parents former marriage and even Lucas’s mom all were beautifully crafted and not done just for shock value.
This book will put a smile on your face one minute and the next have you bawling your eyes out t. I give it 4 out 5 stars.
Still not sure if this book is for you, if you enjoyed Nicholas Sparks “A Walk to Remember” and “A Message in a Bottle”, I believe you would enjoy this book. Even if you didn’t enjoy those books pick up a copy of this book if you are in the need for a great little beach romance read or a little pick-up.
