I didn't get to post in February so I'm combining the novel I read in February with the ones I'm reading in March as a 3-part posts.
About the Book
A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. What started as a whim turned into an accidental — and very public — engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season - for the sake of her career . . . and his heart? Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy — the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé — would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency — a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client. For Layla, it’s the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it’s his last chance to win her heart.

Here's what I'm giving it:
Rating: 4 stars
***I received this book from Netgalley without compensation for an honest review.***
This book was a short, sweet read with characters that were both likeable and easy to relate to.
Everyone who has ever dipped their toes into the pool known as romance, understands that sometimes it is the ones we don't see that turn out to be the greatest loves.
I liked the fact that there were already feelings between the main characters but that the man was just as insecure about making the first move as the woman. When they finally admitted their feelings the moment felt nature and not contrived which is something I look for in the romances I like to read.
I would definitely recommend this novel to others.
