    This was probably closer to a 3.5 Star Rating Alicia Harris is a beautiful, smart thirty one year old business owner She also has a big problem She deeply loves her grandfather and he s the only family she has left He recently had a very serious heart attack and was not expected to live Now he has called and told her he s coming for a visit This causes her to panic because she s pregnantand divorcedand he s a minister Alicia found her new husband cheating on her three weeks after her wedding and they quickly divorced Wow He has signed away his legal rights to the child.She has reconnected with an old childhood friend on LinkedIn They were neighbors until his family up and moved to California Now they chat online frequently He has decided to move back to Idaho where he grew up and practice law in one of the local firms The problem is Alicia has let her grandfather believe she is happily married She hasn t told him of the divorce and pregnancy because it could affect his health and he worries about her a lot She doesn t want to cause him another heart attack because that would surely do him in.Joe Palermo is one gorgeous attorney He was married for a very brief period, six months, and his wife left him He is totally soured on relationships, marriage and children He never wants to get that involved with a woman again He has been chatting with his old neighbor from Idaho and it has been fun catching up with her.The Proposition Alicia has asked Joe to be her stand in husband for the five to six weeks her grandfather will be visiting He immediately says no but decides later to go ahead and help her with her plan His first and main thought was about God and if he would be displeased if he became a part of a lie even though it was being done it to protect her grandfather s health and life A couple of weeks down the road and Alicia is falling in love with him but he has already told her than once that he wanted NO wife marriage and NO children There were misunderstandings along the way because he wouldn t be honest with her about the feelings he was developing and purposely pushed her away countless times His signals were so mixed that she would be certain he loved her on Monday but Tuesday he d have nothing to do with her This went back and forth throughout most of the book I really felt sad for Olivia because by him pushing her away and keeping his feelings under wraps he was hurting her terribly She was dealing with a lot before he came along and with the added heartache she felt because of him it s no wonder she went into labor early He caused her to feel unwanted, unlovable for any man, and undesirable Now, that s not so bad if he actually felt nothing but that wasn t the case She was a month from delivering her first child and felt so utterly alone in the world One day he wanted her The next day he didn t and so on It gave me whiplash.It still was a pretty fair read I also liked the Christian elements in the story.

    The problem with books that are around 200 pages is that there just isn t enough time usually to flesh out characters and relationship dynamics As a result, the love is usually insta love and that is not a favorite of mine This is a perfect example of one of those books and it s too bad because I think it had a good thing going for it I liked the characters for the most part and the story line Just wish it wasn t so fast view spoiler I m not sure why Alicia didn t realize that she was having major hormonal responses because she was pregnant and she decided in a few weeks that she was in love with Joe The whole we have to lie to Grandpa reason for the charade was weak, but it was kind of pulled off Grandpa was my favorite character by the way hide spoiler

    This was a sweet second chance romance.Alicia Harris, and Joe were childhood friends They reconnected through an internet site As they were talking she told him she had a big problem Her grandfather was coming for a Thanksgiving visit She didn t want her grandfather to know she was about to be an unwed mother Joe agreed to pretend to be her husband Her grandfather was a smart old man, and they couldn t get much past him He also knew the two were falling for one another, so in small ways he played match maker The end of the story was really sweet.

    The story began with deception that I wanted to know when the truth would be told As the story continued Alicia and Joe had many opportunities to tell the truth but kept living lies Finally they did

    This was a sweet holiday romance I liked that since it was by a well known at least to me Christian author, I knew I wouldn t have to worry about if it was clean or not.I think my favourite character was Grandpa Roger He seemed so wise and kind, but also knew when he needed to apologise for past mistakes.I liked Alicia and Joe, too, but got frustrated with them being dishonest, and then not seeing what was in front of their own eyes I suppose that held up a mirror to me in some ways Perhaps not of my current life, but I definitely know there were plenty of times in the past when I was looking beyond the mark and missing what was truly important.All in all, a nice story about learning what love and marriage really are.
