The Convenient Groom by Denise Hunter

Product 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?

My thoughts:
I really liked this book. It didn't really strike me as a spiritual or religious read, but a sweet, quick romantic read. There are some implied spiritual meanings, but I can see this being a book even a non-Christian fiction reader would enjoy. I loved the character Lucas, he is the type of man that every woman dreams of finding. Kate is an understandably shocked, jilted bride who makes a hasty decision to substitute Lucas as her fiance only hours before the wedding. I loved the character interaction, the story line was intriguing, and the writer made you feel the emotions the characters were feeling . Overall, I give this a 3/5. It is worth the read but you might want to borrow it or pick it up at a used book store.
