Cover_White Lie Christmas - Christine Bell & Riley Murphy(1)


The holidays are here, and Leah Latrelle has made a mess of them. When her out-of-town parents’ concern over her non-existent love life threatens to interfere with her father’s health, she invents a boyfriend who quickly turns into a fiancé. Her family is thrilled, and they change their Christmas plans last minute to meet their future son-in-law. Now Leah has no choice but to come up with the goods. She needs a man, fast. When her friend and business partner, Mick, offers himself up as a sacrifice, she’s all over it. He’s handsome, dependable and available for the job. What could go wrong?

Tis the season, and Mick Kilpatrick can’t say no to a damsel in distress. Especially when that damsel is his luscious business partner who has been the object of his reluctant desire for the past year. He hasn’t pursued anything because being a dad is still priority number one. A sexy woman like Leah will only distract him from what’s really important and he can’t have that. He’ll pretend to be her fiancé, but when it’s over, everything will go back to normal. Sure, he’s fantasized about her once or…a million times but that doesn’t mean he’s in love with her. Does it?

What could possibly go wrong when you have your business partner impersonate your fiance?!  Apparently everything but perhaps love can be found amidst the craziness!

I found this to be a fun and well written story.  Leah just wants her parents to move on with their life and not worry about her being single and away from them.  Mick is her hot to trot partner that has always had a thing for Leah and is willing to subject himself to the parents to keep Leah from going crazy.  What ensues can be likened to a comedy of errors but perhaps true love can be found in the end.  Mick does go a little overboard but I think it was to try and get Leah to see how much they belonged together.

We really enjoyed this book and give it 4 paws.
