Save The Date by Jenny B. Jones

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Save The Date
Thomas Nelson (February 1, 2011)
Jenny B. Jones

You’re invited to the engagement of the most unlikely couple of the year.

When the 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 of Sinclair Enterprises—the primary donor to Lucy’s Saving Grace organization. Alex Sinclair has it all . . . except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Both Lucy and Alex have something the other wants. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancĂ©e in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn’t quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart – and her future – on the line.

Save the Date is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams . . . and maybe even a date.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Save The Date, go HERE.

I write Christian fiction with a few giggles, quite a bit of sass, and lots of crazy. My novels include the Katie Parker Production series and So Not Happening. I would also like to take credit for Twilight , but somewhere I think I read you’re not supposed to lie.

When I’m not typing my heart out (or checking email), I teach at a super-sized high school in Arkansas.
My students are constantly telling me how my teaching changes their lives and turned them away from drugs, gangs, and C-SPAN.
Okay, that’s not exactly true.

Some facts that are true include:
I've always been refined!
A. I got my camera confiscated by big boys with guns at the American Embassy in Europe this past summer. O la la!
B. I once worked in a seed mill office and cleaned out mice on a regular basis. Ew.
C. I’m a former drama teacher.
D. I didn’t pass my drivers test the first time. Or the second…
E. I attract stray animals like a magnet.
F. I used to assemble and test paint ball guns for a local factory...

Since my current job leaves me with very little free time, I believe in spending my spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuits such as:
-watching E!
-updating my status on Facebook
-catching Will Ferrell on YouTube and
-writing my name in the dust on my furniture

I’d love to hear about you, so drop me a note. Or check me out on Facebook.

Ashley’s 2 cents . . . I’ve always had high expectations when it comes to Jenny B. Jones. I have read many of her books in the past – The Katie Parker Series and Just Between You and Me – and have loved all of them. So when this book came in the mail, I took it before Mom could even get her hands on it.

Just like I expected, this story caught my attention and I loved it right away. It’s  a GREAT book that I recommend to everyone who loves to read. I’m sure that you’ll find this book worth your while.

Jenny B. Jones never disappoints. :)

*** Ashley got mentioned on Jenny’s blog – you can see it here.


Heidi Says . . . Ashley’s right – Jenny doesn’t disappoint.  I finished this book last night and I loved it too.  She has a style of writing that is just so down-to-earth and fun to read – it’s REAL.  I appreciate that.  You feel like you’re reading a story about your next door neighbor or your best friend (and you quickly become friends with the characters in her books).  I found myself cheering for Lucy right on through, and was very pleased with the story’s ending.

Yes, as always, we recommend Jenny B. Jones.
