Item Description...
When Dr. Kate's fiance jilts her the morning of the wedding, which coincides with the release of her relationship book, Lucas Wright offers to marry Kate and save her public image. Original.

Publishers 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?

An inspiring tale of enduring love set in romantic Nantucket.

Each Romance For Good(TM) novel offers a story of hope and love that positively portrays the eternal impact of relationships.

Light reading  Nov 8, 2008
Romance novel about a marriage consultant who is jilted on the day of her wedding. A cabinet maker and all round handyman steps in to save the day a few hours before the wedding and volunteers to marry said jilted bride. The marriage is to be only a temporary arrangement since the bride has a career in magazines and the entertainment industry to uphold. Her career is advising other women how to find and how to marry Mr. Right. Her career is put on the line since she appears to have no cred once she is abandoned several hours before the her wedding to Mr. Wrong-for-Her. Her judgement and career are seriously jeopardized. Very light romance reading.
Loved it!  Sep 4, 2008
Life is all about straight neat lines and ordered predictability for Kate Lawrence, marriage guru and new author of Finding Mr-Right-for-You. Her celebrity status will hit new heights with her own beautifully orchestrated wedding with the media jostling for more of Dr Kate and her mystery groom.

Yet Kate's personal and professional life is poised to take a devastating turn when her fiance calls off the wedding hours before the nuptials.

With Kate falling apart before his eyes, carpenter Lucas Wright's unrequited love for Kate causes him to propose the ridiculous - that he step in as groom!

How can Mr Wright be anything but wrong?

Oh my! Denise Hunter knows how to write! A Convenient Groom is a love story overflowing with emotion, tenderness and attraction that captivated me from beginning to end. Kate's desperate need for control in her career and relationships stems from her perception of the faults in her parents' relationship. Lucas' deep and abiding love for Kate is palpable, with every action and word that at times I wanted to cry for him. I can't recommend this book highly enough - for its beautiful love story and the stunning allegory of God's unconditional and sacrificial love. A Convenient Groom is a must read.
The Convenient Groom...a great read!!!  Aug 28, 2008
The Convenient Groom is the second installment in Hunter's new Nantucket Love Story series. The books are written as stand alones and have no carry over characters. More of a series based on location only. In fact, the author does such a great job drawing us into the setting that the location feels like another character.

Both Convenient Groom and the first book, Surrender Bay, are written as modern day parables. Though Thomas Nelson publishes both, neither are preachy or even "Christian" in nature. Moreover, the spiritual thread comes at the end when you see the whole picture and can relate the main characters love story to our own love story with Christ.

I loved this story. I think because it was written to enjoy and absorb. Not to dissect and try to figure out some greater meaning like a lot of "Christian Fiction". The message was so subtle I was able to just enjoy the great story.

There were a few times when Kate annoyed me and I wasn't sure I could believe she would marry Lucas just to save her hide. However, as the story went on, it became increasingly believable. You could see how her need to succeed and to control her own future meant so very much to her that she was willing to do just about anything to save her career.

Personally, Kate's parents failed marriage and subsequently her mother's alcoholism were somewhat easy for me to relate to. So easy that by the end of the book I found myself lost in Kate's life and almost praying she found her way out of the turmoil she created for herself. Hunter did a great job wrapping up the story and subtly showing us the parallel of Kate and Lucas's love to Christ's love for us. I'd definitely recommend this book. Especially if you love romance. Because of the parable nature of the book, it would also make a great gift for those that prefer clean secular fiction.
Just okay  Aug 3, 2008
This story had great potential. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't amazing either. It was just a cute little book. Not much else to say. The romance was mediocre and anything gospel related was minimal. The characters weren't that endearing but it's just an okay story.
Good Read  Jul 11, 2008
The novel pulls at your heart strings and makes you feel for both of the lead characters. It was well written and interesting - however, I felt that the middle of the novel dragged a bit and for some reason, reading it just make me feel kind of sleepy. It wasn't what I would call an exciting or funny read, but rather more introspective. Also, while I didn't mind, the book has little to no Christian references though it is placed within the Christian fiction genre. It's simply a good, romantic novel though it does, subtly, involve a few PG themes.
