Admissions counselor Genie Michaels has dated professor-turned-author Hugh Spencer for four years, patiently waiting him out. When Hugh's bestselling novel lands him on tv, Genie's loved ones tuning in are surprised to see him make an on-air proposal to the love of his life. All assume it's Genie, but off camera, Hugh confesses to an affair, escapes to England for the summer and leaves Genie to do the explaining.
Best friend Patty proposes that, rather than moping, Genie keep her mouth shut and enjoy being engaged while it lasts. Soon, Genie's sporting a giant, self-purchased cubic zirconia ring, and massives of wedding gifts begin to arrive at her office. As the inevitable approaches, there's plenty of sticky situation comedy, including handsome charming carpenter Nick.
Very fluffy. I actually picked this author based on another reviewer, I liked it and will probably read more from this author. But it is def. one of those books that just won't stick with me. I really liked Genie though and her games of pretending that she was engaged. And I was hoping the whole book that her and Nick would get together! If you are looking for a "read by the pool/ocean", I highly recommend.
