The Run Down
The Gist of the Thing
A favor for friends becomes a chance at true love.
Stubbornly small-town Jenny Lindstrom has misgivings when she promises to stand proxy in her best friend’s wedding—misgivings that are fulfilled when tall, handsome Sam Kelley walks into the courthouse an hour late. In order to keep her promise, an afternoon favor turns into a weekend of startling but undeniable attraction, threatening the well-ordered world that keeps her heart at arm’s length from any more pain.
Sam’s plan is to fly to Livingston, Montana, take vows for his favorite cousin, and return to Chicago as quickly as possible. But his plan is turned upside-down when he must spend a weekend with Jenny in Gardiner in order to keep his word. He doesn’t want to fall for the prim, proper schoolteacher whose small-town life seems to him like selling out, but the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to say good-bye.
When city and country come together for Christmas, the unexpected gift is true love
What I LIKED about this book.
The heroine's culture was neat. Katy made it a large part of who she was but it was not forced on the reader.
What I DISLIKED about this book.
If you like more explicit reads, this one might not be for you. (Did not bother me, so not really what I disliked so much as what I can see other people wanting to know.)
If I had to sum up By Proxy in one word, I would say sweet. With all the Christian Grey-esque heroes running around today, one can forget that a hero can be manly without being so alpha he has cave man tendencies. He can be funny, smart, and nice. Sex? Yeah, he wants to, but he wants you more. I liked By Proxy. The characters are endearing and the story is sweetly romantic.
