Today marks Day 20 of 31 Days of #BookLove. Rather than review all 300 books I’ve read this year, I decided to share one of my favorites each day this month.
WIFE FOR A WEEK by Kelly Hunter
Genre: Adult Romance
Publisher: Harlequin Books / Harlequin Presents
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Nicholas Cooper must produce a wife for his business deal, and Hallie Bennett is beautiful and intelligent enough to pull it off. She needs the money, and Nicholas has determined some strict rules for their week together. Rule No. 1: Displays of affection in public only
Keeping their hands on each other in public turns out to be surprisingly easy. It’s keeping them “off” in private that’s the problem. Hallie is falling for Nicholas, but will Nicholas make his contract wife his real-life bride?
What I Liked:
From the very first chapter, this book reminded me of the old screwball Hepburn-Tracy movies of the 40s. The dialogue sparkles with a witty back and forth. The voice is entertaining. And the characters find themselves in situations worthy of a Cary Grant flick. I chuckled out loud often (especially at the hero’s inner monologue the first time the heroes end up in bed together). I ended up replaying that dialogue for friends over drinks – “we can fix this!” Suspend belief and enjoy this book for the charm that explodes out of it. And tweet me about the above scene when you get to it. We will laugh together.
Like the sound of WIFE FOR A WEEK? Give the author a little #BookLove. Kelly Hunter tweets @KellyHunterova.
BONUS: There are other books about the other Bennett family members! I’ve already devoured all the others in the series. WIFE FOR A WEEK is definitely my favorite, but Hunter definitely has a style I love. See the series here.
