(New) [Save the Date] BY Jenny B. Jones

Lucy Whiltshire returned to Charleston determined to make a difference founding Saving Grace a home for irls who ve raduated from the foster care system but are not yet euipped or unable to make the transition to adulthood and caring for themselves She s determined to prove to the society blue bloods that rejected and caring for themselves She s determined to prove to the society blue bloods that rejected marginalized her during her own teenage years that she and the irls she s desperate to save are than the sum of their antecedents But when funding for her non profit is unceremoniously pulled Lucy stands in danger of failing her irls and joining them on the streets Desperation drives her into the arms of Alex Sinclair heir to the very firm that pulled her financial support and one of the Charleston blue bloods that excelled at making Lucy feel so very inferior as a teen Locked in a heated Congressional race Alex desperately needs to shake his former playboy image if he hopes to win over voters and a relationship with Lucy might just do the trick He makes a shocking proposal in exchange for posing as his irlfriend and eventual fiancee he ll provide Lucy with the money she needs to save her Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood girls home Despite his movie star looks Alex couldn t be farther from Lucy s romantic ideal but with the future of herirls on the line she agrees to play the doting Imagine That! girlfriend With both their futures riding on a romantic con under thelare of a media spotlight two individuals who can t stand each other confront the truth that there s to each other than first meets the eye and the irresistible sparks that fly when opposites attractSave the Date is without a doubt one of the best romance novels I ve read in ages it marries all of the comfortable trappings of a romantic comedy with unexpectedly well meted powerful moments of spiritual truth I ve long been a fan of the author s blog where one can appreciate her well drawn sense of humor and wit but I ve yet to dive into her novels an error I hope to soon rectify Save the Date is replete with Jones s trademark humor and pop culture references Despite their disparate backgrounds Alex and Lucy prove worthy sparring partners Lucy sure in her certainty that Alex is nothing than a pretty face who could never forsake his playboy ways while for his part Alex uickly learns to love baiting his fake fiancee enjoying her easily riled temper But beneath their surface differences and wildly disparate upbringings Lucy and Alex discover in each other a fellow wounded soul in desperate need of race While the arrangement Alex proposes is at first blush extreme and worthy of the LIGHTEST WEIGHT HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER THE MANNER IN WHICH JONES weight Hollywood blockbuster the manner in which Jones the tropes of an arranged marriage in this case fake engagement to force her two protagonists together masks the real heart of the novel accepting God s freely iven Sister of My Heart graceI love it when God brings a book across my path that reinforces current experiences andor study and in this case I was powerfully struck by Lucy and Alex s respective spiritual arcs and how they related to my pastor s recent sermon on living declared secure in the knowledge that as believers God looks at us and sees beloved children instead of constantly focusing on where we fail Though the life experiences that formed Alex and Lucy couldn t be different Alex the son of privilege and money Lucy the daughter of a struggling single mom both have bought into what I would posit is one of the most insidious lies that no matter who you are what you do where you ve come from it s never enough In what is probably one of the best examples of incorporating a faith message into a novel that I ve come across Lucy s outoing youth pastor friend Chuck lays bare the lie that salvation God s King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies grace must be earned over and over In a society that idolizes perfection Jones strips the lie that we must live burdened by pasts filled with fear and regret when all that is reuired is accepting God srace freely offered and resting in the knowledge that in Him alone are we made perfectLucy and Alex s unexpected love story is just part of this novel s considerable charm I adored watching Alex and Lucy fall for each other Jones pens some lovely sizzling moments of romantic tension But she also peoples her storyline with a host of unforgettable amusing well drawn supporting players I loved that Lucy was a sci fi Rescuing Gus geek who had regular meetings with like minded friends aka The Hobbits who shared her love of all things Star Trek and Doctor Who related Lucy s prickly recently discoveredrandmother Claire is a Class of 92: Out of Our League gem and Claire s fledgling faith coupled with her secretary Julian s sarcastic comment. You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year with the most unlikely bride androom Save the date and say your prayersWhen funding for Lucy's non profit job is pulled she is determined to find out why Enter Alex Sinclair former professional football star and heir to Sinclair
