Of all the weddings in all the world, Angie Roux had to be mistaken for a bridesmaid in this one.

Caledon, South Africa, is supposed to be just a stop on the way to Christmas in Cape Town, part of Angie’s long-avoided homecoming. She never expected to star in a bizarre comedy of errors, but here she is: convincing a handsome stranger to be her fake boyfriend for the day.

Ezra Johnson, the handsome stranger in question, turns out to be a pleasant distraction from both the wedding and thoughts of her first family Christmas without her father. And he seems to loathe weddings just as much as she does. He’s the perfect temporary companion.

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours. Including a connection so strong it tempts them both into thinking of something more permanent…

 

Finding love when they least expect it! A delightfully sweet connection between two wayward souls leads to more than they ever bargained for. The chemistry between this couple is there from the start as we follow them throughout one day together. It’s a fun premise to a story, but it really drug too much for my liking. The background and turmoil of each of their recent lives laid the groundwork for a story full of strife and drama, but the continual going over of the same feelings and expectations left a good bit of possibilities on the table instead of being developed. I was left wanting more to keep the storyline moving throughout, but with a satisfying conclusion in the end.

Angie Roux should have resisted temptation to stop at a family memory in Caledon, South Africa on her way home for her first holiday get-together in a few years. She’s dragging her feet because she knows chastisement and hurt probably await her in Cape Town, so a small side-trip won’t hurt. If only she had known she’d be mistaken as a bridesmaid in an on-going wedding and made to seek the aid of a stranger in the local cafe in order to diffuse the case of mistaken identity!

Ezra Johnson is enchanted with Angie from the moment she encroaches on his space and begins to tell her tale. He’s just passing through as well, but he can’t help but think he was placed in this cafe at this particular time for a reason. He’s not looking for a future, but it looks like fate might have just stepped in and found him one none-the-less!
