Married 'Til Monday Review

You know how sometimes you start a book, and it's not fantastic, but you just keep reading because you feel obligated to finish it?  That happens to me sometimes.  I used to feel that I had to finish every book I started, but in more recent years, I sometimes just don't.  Reading, especially reading fiction, should be enjoyable, right?  So for vacation last week I planned to bring a few books that I knew would be books that I really wanted to read and knew I would enjoy, and Married 'Til Monday by Denise Hunter was one of them.

Married 'Til Monday finishes off the stories about the McKinley family that make up the Chapel Springs series.  I have read two of the other books in this series, and I really enjoyed them. I had been hoping Hunter would write one about Ryan, who is still in love with his ex-wife, Abby, so I was particularly looking forward to this book.

One day Ryan gets a call from his ex mother-in-law inviting him an anniversary party, and he realizes that Abby never told her parents that they got divorced.  He covers for her, and takes the opportunity to contact her again.  He volunteers to pretend to be married to her for the weekend, with the secret intention of winning her back.

As with her other books, I felt like Hunter got a bit descriptive of some of the feelings associated with the physical affection between the characters in this book, though there was nothing inappropriate.  That is really the only complaint I ever have with her romance novels.

I thought Hunter did a nice job of weaving Ryan and Abby's history in with the rest of the story in a natural way.  One of the reasons I like reading Hunter's books is that she is so good at taking a plot that could get slow and keeping it interesting throughout.  Every time I ended a chapter I immediately wanted to start the next one so I could see what was going to happen.  I'm kind of bummed that the series is over now, but I am looking forward to seeing what Hunter comes out with in the future!

Note: I received a digital copy of this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
