Save The Date

What woman hasn't dreamed of the fairy tale ending to her own life? The one where you find the perfect guy, he proposes and confesses his undying love to you, you plan a wedding, get married and live happily ever after.

That's what Lucy Wiltshire had seen coming but never imagined that the man she'd been dating for almost a year was going to say he was leaving her for his career. Yet that's what happened and she was left holding her broken heart while the tears continued to flow.

Lucy falls back to her only remaining hope, to put herself into her non-profit project Saving Grace, a home for girls that turn 18 and are left out on the street with no source of finding work after being in the foster care system most of their lives. Lucy offers them hope. Yet when a meeting with PR rep from Sinclair Hotels tells her that they will be cutting the funding of Saving Grace by 40 percent, she fears that she will have to close the home.

Alex Sinclair, former all star football player and local hunk is running for Congress and finds that his popularity in his head and with the women in his life isn't the same as the voters of his town. So when an unexpected opportunity falls right into his arms, by way of Lucy Wiltshire attending a fundraising party and trying her best to save Saving Grace and makes a disaster of the party, Alex is about to offer her the chance of a lifetime.

If she will play the part of his fiancee, he will fund Saving Grace for the next 5 years and in the end she gets to walk away from it all without having to marry him. I mean how hard could it be to fake being in love?

I received Save The Date by Jennie B. Jones compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I love the story line and fell in love with the characters of Lucy and Alex, while in the end hoping for a true fairy tale ending. I was not disappointed. This one rates a perfect 5 out of 5 hearts and stars! I was smitten from the first hello. For those of you that love a good old-fashioned romance with a whole lot of southern spunk, than this one is perfect for you.

Here's even more great information about the book, the author and a first chapter glimpse that is guaranteed to have you wanting to read this amazing story.

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.


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.
