A December Bride, By Denise Hunter


What started as a whim turned into an accidental – and very public – engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the facade 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-fiance 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.

When I started this book I wasn’t sure what to expect.  But as I got into it, it was really fun to watch as Seth and Layla in a complete mess.  And watch the two of them try to learn how to overcome it all.
Now I do have to say, this story was quite predictable, but I think that’s just because it was a romance.  There was no sex taken place in it.  It was an overall sweet book that if you are just looking for something that will bring a smile to your face, you should check this one out.
With Seth’s character, we were able to spend quite a bit of time with him and figure out what it is about Layla that he loves.  And with Layla, well I do have to give her credit for still standing to be around him.  But at the same time, I’m left wondering why the heck she would treat him like that!  But, to each their own.
Overall this is a really sweet romance that if you’re looking for a quick sweet read you should check this one out.
