Review: The Accidental Bride

About the Book:
When her friends order her to take a vacation, successful chef Jilly O'Hara is less than enthused. She may be overworked, but a trip to the mountains is not her idea of fun. Especially when she's roped into an outrageous scheme to pose as a happy bride—all to fulfill the kindly resort owner's dreams of once again hosting a lavish wedding. But the ruggedly handsome make-believe groom may just make it tolerable….
Walker Hale has kept to himself since his return from active duty—but the next thing he knows, he's also playing along with the wedding charade. Even this jaded loner isn't immune to Jilly's quirky charm…or her beauty. But vacations have to end sometime, and they'll soon have to decide if the feelings between them were more than pretend.

My Comments:
Jilly has heart problems (physical) and her doctor orders rest.  Her friends (we've met them in other books) send her to a knitting retreat (she thinks she's going to a cooking retreat--she's a chef).  While she is at this resort in the middle of nowhere she meets Walker, who is a veteran recently returned from the Middle East.  They fall for each other, and agree to marry, just temporarily, to make an old woman happy.  What can I say? It is not the most realistic plot I've ever read.  It was a cute story, and she fell for his dog before she fell for him.  There are a couple of hot and heavy scenes but they aren't terribly explicit.  Great literature it is not, but its not a bad pool read.  Grade:  B-
