In her latest heartwarming romance novel, Greer (For Never & Always) continues to feature rich and complex LGBTQIA+ characters. The story follows Tara, a rigid lawyer with a troubled past, and Holly, a waitress with a cynical view of marriage due to past experiences. When Tara needs a date for her ex-fiancée’s wedding, Holly agrees to pose as her romantic partner. The book takes readers on a journey as Tara and Holly navigate their fake relationship at a fully packed wedding weekend, slowly unraveling each other’s stories and growing closer despite their vastly different backgrounds. Greer balances the rom-com elements with substantial exploration of the characters’ personal histories and familial struggles and centers the themes of love, identity, and personal growth throughout the novel. The narrative is further enhanced by a host of supportive side characters, who, knowingly or unknowingly, bolster Tara and Holly’s relationship.
VERDICT Fans of Greer’s will enjoy this must-read novel, with its engaging plot, supportive side characters, and inclusive depiction of a lesbian relationship.
