Blake Harrison is the modern day heir to a very old, titled English inheritance. An inheritance that his departed Father saw fit to rescind if Blake is not married by the age of 35. Sam (Samantha) Elliott is an all-American blue blood born with a silver spoon but down on her luck. Her one chance at making her high-end match-making business successful has finally arrived in the form of one very rich, very English power-player, Mr. Blake Harrison. What follows is an absolutely delightful yet surprisingly believable romp through the machinations that is modern day love and society.

If one has ever wondered whatever happened to all those Dukes and Earls from our favorite historical romances, look no further! In "Wife By Wednesday", Ms. Bybee has successfully taken the ever popular regency tome' of titles, heirs money and inheritances, transplanted it into contemporary society and turned it on its ear! The writing is down-to-earth, girl-next-door readable, the dialogue quick, witty with just enough snark to make it pop and the romance is a sweet, slightly steamy treat! It's pure escapism, feel good fun that makes a reader happy for the pure pleasure of indulging.

Wife by Wednesday - grabs you from the title and pulls you into a wonderful tale of an arragned marriage...well more of a business contract. Blake needs a wife to fulfil the terms of his father's will and gain his inheritance. Sam agrees but neither of them expect keeping the contract to be as hard as it is.

In this story, Ms. Bybee has brought to life two engaging characters, a conniving villain and a series of obstacles which leave you turning the pages with eager anticipation to find out what happens next. The first non-historical one I have read, it's no less engaging than her time travel books. If you love those, then this one is not to be missed.

OMG! Wife by Wednesday, was such a wonderful emotional book. The attraction between Sam and Blake was so real. I was angry, cried and was laughing at every page. This was a well written story and I loved it. I can't wait for another book to come out from Catherine Bybee, what a great writer that holds the readers interest untill the last page and then wanting more. Great read!

I was surprised to see all the good reviews for this story. It's a reasonably cute story, as popcorn romances go, but it really could have used at least one more editing pass. Not only are there a large numbers of typos, but more than a few plot or character inconsistencies. First the main character's friend/employee is living with the main character because she doesn't have a place of her own and sometimes stays with her boyfriend, then the friend is kicking the boyfriend out of her place so the main character can stay with her. The main character learns immediately that the guy's worst enemy is his cousin, then later seems shocked to learn they don't get along. Things like this are all over the place. Not to mention, the main guy is portrayed at first as a cool, emotionless player who has two girlfriends at once, but from the moment he meets the main (female) character, all of that is gone, and that part of his personality never shows itself again, which is both unrealistic and inconsistent. Overall, a pretty disappointing read.

I know that I shouldn't have high expectations for a 99 cent book on Kindle, but when I saw the 4/5 star rating, I thought it might be a gem. It was not.

I have never been inspired to write a review of a book before, but I feel as though it is my duty to fellow readers to warn them against this book. Honestly, I am floored that Wife by Wednesday received such high ratings, and I wonder if the author's friends and family didn't write the high reviews themselves to get people to buy this book. (Okay, I realize that's cynical and probably untrue, but honestly, I can't think of any other reason that this book would get such high ratings.)

A quick read, yes, but an entirely predictable one, and I did not care at all about any of the characters. There was no development that would make a reader feel anything other than bored by the characters and their motivations. The plot was also ridiculously hard to believe; it was far too contrived, and as another reviewer pointed out, it required too much suspension of disbelief. At some points, I laughed out loud because of the canned plot/dialogue. Nothing in this book ever felt true or genuine, including the long, drawn out scenes of intimacy between the two main characters. Also, characters who seemed important (i.e., Howard, the spiteful cousin of one of the main characters, Blake) ended up having absolutely nothing to do with the plot. Said cousin often appeared in scenes whispering to other characters and casting suspicious glances at Blake. I thought that this would eventually be relevant to the plot--that something would come out with this cousin. I was wrong-- he ended up being completely irrelevant. Other such characters made similarly useless appearances throughout.

Finally, the writing was just poor.

Just so you will know how much I loved this book, I have to tell you a story first.

I gave up my Nook for the month of November to participate in NaNoWriMo. I mean I went so far as to banish the device to my mother's house.

But I just couldn't resist Wife by Wednesday. I kept reading all these awesome review tweets. And then I started following Catherine Bybee who is very cool and gracious. I'm a sucker for an author who responds to her readers.

So last night, I gave in. Without my nook, I had no other choice but to start reading Wife by Wednesday on my smartphone. At 11pm, I started reading away on my itty bitty screen and then I couldn't stop. The characters were so amazingly adorable. The way Blake and Samantha connected and developed their relationship was so much fun to read. They had me smiling throughout the book, laughing and crying along the way. They were just really cute and sassy, and I just had to finish the book right then to read their Happily Ever After (which came by the way just before 4 in the morning).

I read the whole dang thing on my cell phone people. If that doesn't show how great this book is, then I don't know what will. ;)

Congrats to Catherine Bybee on her first indie novel. You definitely have a winner. I can't wait to read the sequel.
