Single mom Jenny Castelli has a temper to match her red hair. When the former mean girls of her high school insult her son, Jenny fires off a big lie - that she's engaged to a rich, handsome guy and is bringing him to their ten-year reunion. Now she needs to find the perfect fake fiancé for one night. And only one man fits the bill.

Loved Owen who was strong, patient and solid. Both had issues but Jenny made me crazy as she went back and forth with "I love him, but I'm not good enough for him and he could never love me". Yet she couldn't resist and Owen showed her in every way how he felt. The narrator couldn't keep her voices straight which was confusing at times and that took away from the book. Overall, I would choose it again and we'll worth the money.

Grayson Coleman has just moved home to Butler, Vermont after spending years working for a high-powered law firm in Boston. He's looking for a simpler, less stressful existence in the sleepy little mountain town where he grew up with his siblings and Abbott cousins. Once the holidays are over, he plans to hang out a shingle and open a new general law practice. After helping to raise his seven younger siblings, the last thing on Grayson's mind is a family of his own.

I enjoyed the story of Emma and Grayson very much and catching up with the family is always a treat, but the narrator... She did the female voice well but the mail voices were a struggle and Grayson's particularly was awful. I would suggest either the narrator work on her craft before the next book or Marie needs to look for another narrator. Maybe Therese Plummer?

I read the original book under Runaway Mistress some years ago but loved how Therese Plummer brought it to life with her narration. Love Robyn's writing!
