The Engagement Plot ~ Review

The Engagement Plot
By Krista Phillips

Hanna Knight thought she'd be living a happily-ever-after after when she is William Preston picks her as his choice in The Price of Love. But when he makes a comment that trashes her reputation and subjects her to national ridicule Hanna wants nothing to do with him.

But with his job on the line, William has no choice but to repair the damage he has done and ask for Hanna's forgiveness. But Hanna's not sure that she's ready to help William, but when a snowstorm lands them in the headlines yet again Hanna agrees to pretend that she and William are engaged.

Scandal seems determined to dog them as they try to present the appearance of a happily engaged couple. Which isn't that hard as they are both still drawn to the other. But a new scandal is lurking just below the surface, one that could cost Will more than his job or Hanna. Can Hanna and Will get beyond the past and accept help where they least expect it?

The Engagement Plot is a house built on sand that is just waiting for the first little wave to wash out the nonexisting foundation. The hoopla and pressure of living under the ever-watching eye of the public has created a false environment for finding a love worth having. Hanna and Will will have to decide what is important before they can move forward either together or alone. And they will have to return to their faith before that can happen. And they just might need a little help to get there.

This is a fine book to just read but I have to admit reality tv is not my thing (I avoid it totally). And Hanna's shock at the behavior of those involved in the show and the fallout from her appearance should not have been surprised in the least. "Um, hello, reality television." But on the positive Hanna and Will both came to realize that they needed to get their priorities reassessed and determine just what was really important to them. If you like contemporary Christian romance fiction with a lot of dramatics give this book a try. For me, there was too much kissing and toeing the line when it comes to standing true to one's commitments, but then I've been called a Puritan when it comes to dating do's and don't's.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Six months ago, William stole Hanna’s heart and shattered it in front of millions of people on a reality TV dating show. When all seems lost, it’s only with help from above that Hanna and Will may find their happily-ever-after.
