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.
