Two couples, in different circumstances, with the same brilliant plan: pretend to date to get their friends and family off their backs. I appreciated how the circumstances and types of characters were different in each story. I have good things to say about them both.
The first one has a first line that is guaranteed to draw you in, and quirky characters that will make you laugh. The subject matter is serious of course and deals with the pain an absent father can cause.
The second has fun dialogue between the main characters, and brings together two people with very different likes who have an unpleasant history. There was also an interesting subplot of a marriage on the rocks.
In both, the characters must learn to depend on God more, and to see His hand even in the confusing and disillusioning events of their lives. I hope you’ll take a chance to enjoy these books.
