a roller coaster ride of human interactions. This writer is skilled in evoking deep emotions in the reader.
A pleasure to read.
Holly should get remarried if only in name so that she will have more power against her ex-husband and his new wife. Totally against the idea Holly, thinks it is a non-issue, but not so for her friends. Without her knowledge, they place an ad in the newspaper: Husband Needed.
What Holly doesn't realize is that her ex-husband's wife Gwen practices magic and is not adverse to using black magic if it helps her get what she wants, and she wants Holly married off so that Donald does not mention her again.
That ad will change many lives and reveal many secrets. While Holly is having problems with her ex, on a famous winery in Cape Town, South Africa, a man named Joshua is having problems with his fiancée, Nicole. They have been engaged for four years, and she still refuses to commit to a wedding date. As a last resort, he gives her an ultimatum, pick a date before the week's end or they are finished. Nicole a spoiled, selfish woman will not succumb to pressure and does not call. This was his Plan A when he called Holly accepting the marriage proposal. Now two people have formed a plan that will ultimately bring happiness, love, hate and revenge.
Holly's sister Heather, a psychic, sees danger in Holly's future. In spite of that, she sees Joshua as a good man. On their supposed honeymoon night, a marriage that was in name only goes much further when they consummate it. Now a simple annulment is out of the question. Joshua has no problem telling Holly that he will have sex with her until such time as Nicole comes to her senses and he marries her. The only problem is that the minute Holly and Joshua became engaged, a ghost began to torment Holly. The ghost is a woman named Moragh, and she wants Holly to tell her story. What story? Was she murdered? Investigating, Holly discovers there is no Moragh Abernathy anywhere. No murder ever reported, so who is she and how can Holly help?
While Holly and Joshua begin to enjoy being with each other there are forces working against them. Joshua and Nicole's families are harboring many secrets, and the ghost is doing everything in her power to bring destruction to the two families. This was a wonderful story reminiscent of the old classic movies. There is danger, revenge, hatred, romance, betrayal, adultery, and magic, without explicit sex or violence.
The story kept my interest throughout, and I found it hard to put down since I wanted to know all the secrets, and then of course, there was a secret I never saw coming. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves ghost stories, mysteries, and romances.

No pranks please
Joshua read it a second time before he scrubbed both hands over his face, his elbows crumpling the newspaper on the table. What was the world coming to, if women had to resort to dailies to get them a man? he wondered. Would this poor, misguided soul even want the kind of man who was like to respond to this silly ad?... Surely this Holly woman didn’t think she was going to get a bona fide offer of marriage from this tiny advert, did she?... He waited for his laptop to boot up, then typed ‘Holly Turnbull’… Holly turned out to be a journalist and not bad to look at either. He was impressed, even though it seemed odd that a woman like her would advertise for a husband. Oh, well, each one to her own. She would do nicely in his newly formed plan.’
Joshua Jordan has found a way to push Nicole, his fiancée of four years, into making the final commitment by scheduling a wedding. He will give her an ultimatum of time and if she doesn’t find it within herself to meet the deadline, he will take this Holly woman up on her marriage proposal for just long enough to bring Nicole to her senses.
Holly Turnbull didn’t actually place the ad for a husband in the daily paper, her three best friends and roommates did. Holly’s ex-husband Donald has refused to allow her to see their two boys for long enough. The girls believe that with a husband, Donald will have no excuses for not allowing her to see the boys. The girls also believe Donald’s wife Gwen is the one that is really behind him not allowing Holly to see her kids. So when the marriage proposal comes in from Joshua Jordan, Holly sees that this just might be the answers to her problems with Donald. But with the proposal comes something that no one would have guessed... Moragh. Moragh is a spirit from the past who starts sending Holly messages demanding that she ‘tell her story’ and to her surprise, the story starts at the very home belonging to Joshua.
This book has it all… murder, mystery, love, hate, ghosts, spells and the supernatural. The tale is so twisted that you think you have it all figured out only to find that you’re wrong. The characters are strong and if you believe in ghosts, very believable. I really didn’t want this book to end but to just keep on going. Convenient Marriage is a very entertaining book. I loved it.
At first, I didn’t like this book because it seemed so disjointed in the beginning. But a few chapters in I found it really hard to put down! The author cleverly has the characters slowly come together and you can clearly understand what’s going on. I also found it very intriguing and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. After those first few chapters, something always is happening.
I recommend A Convenient Marriage for your home library. You ladies will just love it! I think your older teens would even enjoy it!
