What a fun read! Krista has skilfully weaved a story based on honesty in all aspects of life. With some funny moments, some life lessons and lots of romance this is a great story to delve into. Hope you'll enjoy this story like I have!
This book was sweet, if a little predictable. Cute premise - the 'after' section of a reality show - and I liked the relationships the main characters had with their families. Fun read but not a great deal of depth.
This was a really enjoyable and engaging story to read. It was funny with a thread of seriousness flowing through it. It was written so well that I could feel the emotions of the hapless Will and confused Hanna. It was hard to put down as I just wanted to see what came next for this delightful couple.
There were parts of The Engagement Plot which were excellent. I loved the writing, which was witty and original. I loved the dialogue, which was the perfect blend of clever and snarky, and allowed the personalities of the characters to shine. The plot sounded kitschy at first, but it soon convinced me: a couple who met and fell in love on a cheesy reality TV show, then broke up following gutter innuendo in a TV interview (as an aside, why do we call it reality TV? It's nothing like reality). The other aspect I loved about The Engagement Plot was that it was Christian romance with an emphasis on the Christian. As far as bringing the Christian into Christian romance goes, The Engagement Plot is better than average. Unfortunately, there were also some less good qualities. The cover isn't great-it portrays Hanna as a ditsy teen drama queen when she's anything but. The txtspk is trying to be hip, but is as dated as my first Nokia brick phone. Worst, the whole Doug subplot was too obvious. The DougHanna scenes felt contrived, which is never a good thing. I wondered if I'd overestimated Hanna's IQ and street savvy. So there are weaknesses and strengths in The Engagement Plot. Overall, it's a quick, fun read. Thanks to Shiloh Run Press and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
