After arguing with her live-in boyfriend about his inability to commit, Peggy Adams flies to a friend's bachelorette party in Las Vegas, and wakes up next to a man she can't remember. Hung-over and miserable, she sneaks out of the sleeping man's hotel room and returns home to New York, where her boyfriend apologizes for the fight and gives her a Tiffany box containing a pre-engagement ring. Not what she expected, but close enough! The next day she receives a phone call from the Las Vegas one-night stand, Luke, claiming she's already married to him?-and he faxes her the license for proof! Both are ready for an annulment, until Peggy arrives in quaint New Nineveh, CT, where Luke cares for his Great Aunt, and the old woman makes Peggy an offer she can't refuse.
This book sounded interesting when I first heard about, but I wasn't sure if I would get into it. I usually read murder mystery, suspense and crime drama books and this seemed more of a romantic love story book. I figured I'd take it up north with me on my camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. Everyone does alot of fishing, and I just don't get into it. Reading a book sounded like alot more fun than just sitting around watching everyone fish while I twiddled my thumbs.
I started it Saturday afternoon and read for about an hour. Everyone fished for a couple of hours on Sunday while I read the whole time. I even had my friend N beside me reading one of her books. I took the Trixter and my brother back to camp because they were bored and the mosquitoes were horrible. So, I sat in my tent and read some more. I read almost the whole way home on Monday and still couldn't put it down. It was finished by Monday night.
With all of that being said, I really did enjoy the book. I mean, I just couldn't put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. It never lost my interest.
