Maddie has a problem. She needs a husband…and she needs one fast.
Maddie needs to find, a man who will actually agree to sign a prenuptial, marry her and then accept a hefty “pay off” to give her a divorce and exit her life. If she can’t find someone she can trust to pull off this marriage of convenience by April first her step mother will retain the control of her massive inheritance for another ten years.
There is only one man Mattie can think of that she could trust. Jake. He was her first love and the one special friend from her childhood she felt she could go to with her scheme. Jake’s mother worked for Maddie’s family when she and Jake were children. The two spent their childhood together and became fast friends, but Mattie had wanted more. Her impulsive nature put them in an embarrassing situation in which they were caught by Mattie’s stepmother. Jake’s mother lost her job and was kicked out. Jake’s well laid plans for a scholarship and his future crumbled. While Mattie’s life spun out of control, Jake struggled to achieve his dreams and over the years of their separation, unknown by Mattie, had done quite well for himself.
Their meeting is uncomfortable, but Jake does agree to her scheme. On April 1st they are wed and the adventure begins.
This is a wonderful love story. April Fool Bride is well plotted and beautifully told. As the story came to an end I found myself wanting to read more.
I read a lot of books, but I don’t read them all to the end, and I only write a review on the ones I love. I thoroughly enjoyed April Fool Bride. 5 Stars!!
