Product Description

Dr. Kate has it all-a radio talk show, a nationally-syndicated column, and a publisher who is paying for a lavish wedding to coincide with the release of her first book, Finding Mr. Right-For-You. But when her fiance jilts her the morning of the wedding, her life begins to crash around her. Who, after all, would want a relationship book by a counselor who can't even hold her own engagement together?

When Lucas Wright realizes what has happened, he offers to marry Kate and save her public image. Kate's heart-and her pride-have been deeply wounded. Are Lucas's handsome smile and utter devotion enough to convince her that her marriage is more than she had ever expected?

Publisher's Description

She wrote the book--literally--on finding the right mate. But does she really understand what love's about?

Five hours before her Nantucket beach wedding--and on the eve of her big book launch--celebrity marriage counselor Kate Lawrence has everything in place.

Everything, that is, but the groom. She might not have a career, either, when her nationwide audience finds out their marriage guru has been left at the altar.

Enter Lucas Wright, who offers to stand in for the missing husband-to-be and marry her. Kate's desperate enough to agree--although she's sure this Mr. Wright is completely wrong for her. But can they pull it off? And why would Lucas marry her in the first place?

Could it be that "Dr. Kate" doesn't know the first thing about love?

An inspiring tale of enduring love set in romantic Nantucket.

Each Romance For Good™ novel offers a story of hope and love that positively portrays the eternal impact of relationships.

    Sharing my thoughts~

    Jilted by her fiance, Bryan, just a handful of hours before their wedding, Kate's pain and internal turmoil literally seeps off the pages. How could this happen? She was a marriage consultant, supposedly an expert on the topic, and her book was launching along with her wedding. Lucas, a carpenter, had loved Kate since the day she rented the space above his shop. Since the groom's identity had been kept a secret, all tied up with the book's marketing plan, Lucas volunteers to step in. Kate agrees to his plan, but only for a year. Lucas is in it for the forever.

    Committing a year of her life to a man she didn't love. Good grief, most of the time she didn't even like him. Not that he was a bad person. He was just so...irritating sometimes. Vexing. The way he was late and careless and so laid-back she wished she had a remote control so she could push the fast-forward button.

    Yep. Major conflict ensues when organization to the nth degree marries laid back Lucas. But Lucas sets out to show list-making Kate that life happens between the pages.

    Know what you're looking for before you begin dating. As with a spontaneous shopping spree, if you don't have a goal in mind, you'll come home with the wrong thing.

    ~Excerpt from Finding Mr. Right-for-You by Dr. Kate

    I enjoyed the excerpts from Dr. Kate's book that plugged the beginning of every chapter, little nuggets that enticed me to keep reading. Not that I ever once thought about putting down the book, but just to give me an idea of what deliciousness I would find in the next chapter. Totally cool!

    Best of all, I appreciated how this story, without words or preaching, represents Christ and His love for us. Carpenter Lucas (don't you just love that??) loved Kate. Before she ever knew of his love, he stepped in with a plan, to marry her, hoping that he would eventually woo her with his love and his actions. For me, this was an irresistible love story straight from the Word. Rich with symbolism, I can't think of a more appropriate story to read at Easter. Scoop it up! You'll be so glad you did.

    As others have stated, I too was rather taken aback with the lack of references to God in this book. Other than the initial scripture at the beginning of the book. However, I still gave the book 4 stars (4.5, if you want to be technical). I deducted the .5/1 point because of the lack of reference. The author clearly stated that this book is an allegory. What others should think about is the fact that in the Bible the book of Esther does not reference God either, however, we know that He is implied! I thought that this book was a tender representative of the great love that our Savior Jesus Christ has for us!

    The story was romantic and sweet, but honestly, there was nothing in it to point a reader to Christ. A non-believer would know nothing more about God as she did before she read this book. I understand the concept of an allegory, but to me Christian fiction needs to mention Christ. I was disappointed.

    I'm reading the reviews of this series and I'm stunned. Not everyone who is reading Christian fiction has been a christian their whole life. We are flawed and some of us have serious issues and past sins that were pretty wordly. I love this series, because to me, these characters have overcome tremendous situations that really had them in the pit of life. The hero in this book was to die for. His tenderheart had me weeping. Much like the love of Christ. People need to look at the message in the storyline. Not all stories are preachy. Look at the symbolism. Great read in my opinion.

    I enjoyed this book. It was not the most spiritual read, but it was romantic. I was so in love with Lucas and his tender heart. These are real characters with flaws and I like characters I can relate too. I can not wait to read her others books. These books are to relax and enjoy. The rest of the stars would have been there if it had been more spiritiual.
