Married 'til Monday by Denise Hunter

With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby's husband for just one last weekend.

Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.

Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.

Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college—her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

First off, cute cover, right?  I love the title font!  

I always enjoy reading books by Denise Hunter.  I know exactly the kind of story I'm going to get and I know how I will feel in the end.  This is a Christian Fiction book and the fourth in the Chapel Springs Series.  I don't think you need to read them in order as each book stands on it's own.

Obviously Ryan and Abby have a history and not an all together good one.  Their history unfolds slowly as we get to know them better.  I think Ryan might deserve a medal and sainthood.  Honestly.  Ryan's patience knows no bounds.  Which is a good thing because Abby is a girl with a truck load of issues.  Wowza.  She never makes it easy for Ryan.  Ever.

I really felt badly for Abby.  She had my compassion for the really hard things in her life, but I never really liked Abby.  Most of the time she wasn't very nice.  Ryan, on the other hand, was easy to like.  That is a man who knows how to persevere.  He is a kind man and I really liked that.

This was an enjoyable read and a good distraction.  It's squeaky clean and left me feeling good!  My thanks to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for allowing me to read and review this title for them.
