SAVE THE DATE
Save the Date is a sweet romance filled with laugh-out-loud moments. Jones breathes new life into the clichéd “relationship of convenience” plot with characters to root for.
Since the economic downturn, Lucy Sinclair has found it hard to find funding to keep the doors of Saving Grace open. When it looks like she will have to close the home forever, Lucy prays for a miracle. But when her miracle comes in the form of playboy Alex Sinclair, a former NFL player turned congressional hopeful, she begins to wonder if her praying wires are crossed. Alex offers her the money to keep Saving Grace open for five years. But it‘s going to cost her. She has to pretend to be his fiancée to help him win the upcoming election. Is the home worth sacrificing her integrity — and her heart? (THOMAS NELSON, Feb., 320 pp., $14.99)
