Air Force pilot Caleb Kelly has come back home with one mission in mind—to propose to the woman whose letters and lucky charm helped him survive his deployment in Afghanistan. But when he finds their apartment empty with a note saying she’s left him, he arrives at her mother’s house in rural Alabama less than a week before Kourtney is about to marry another man. Now he’s out to win her heart again and gets some unexpected assistance from her younger sister, Alex.

Alex Leadbetter has always thought Caleb was too good for her manipulative, social-climbing sister. She had assumed Kourtney’s identity to write letters to him and keep his spirits up until he returned home to the hard truth, never expecting to fall in love with him along the way. After he shows up in town, she convinces him that the best way to get Kourtney back is to make her think he’s fallen for someone new — her.

But when a fake romance becomes all too real, her deception may leave them both grounded.


What a lighthearted book!

Crista McHugh is one of those authors who is so amazing, it's a wonder why she doesn't have a publisher. Her books are light, but oh-so-romantic, and this book is no exception.

I really liked the fact that Caleb would still call his older brother Adam for advice. That goes to show that he has a tight bond with his family.

I really liked this story because of the undeniable chemistry between Caleb and Alex. Alex wanted a chance, and Caleb was only too desperate to fall for her plan. I loved the way that Alex was so easy going and Caleb was finally noticing her as a woman. She lit up a room wherever she went.

Caleb was set on convincing Alex's sister Kourtney to come back to him. He was confused and he fell in love with the woman who were sending him emails while he was deployed. Talk about a romantic story.

Overall, the character development was superb, and I really enjoyed the quirks of each person in the town of Jackson Grove. If you're looking for a good read, definitely check out this book and the whole series!
