Looking to escape into a non-mystery book for a change of pace, I recently read “Her Imaginary Husband,” a sweet romantic comedy by Lia London.
Description (from Amazon)
New teacher, Nikki Fallon, is trying to ward off the lecherous attention of Coach Carlin. She should
a) slap him silly.
b) report him for harassment.
c) invent an imaginary husband.
Nikki opts for “C” and is not prepared for how the plan backfires! Sure, pretending you’re married to get rid of a jerk is fine, but what if a really nice guy comes along? How can she untangle the web of lies before true love passes her by?
Delightful, fun read. Nikki is a young and energetic teacher with a positive attitude, who manages to connect with her students. She is also inexperienced, and not just with respect to teaching. As a result, Nikki digs herself into a hole with one spur of the moment lie. A whopper. Like in any good romance novel, the end is not a surprise – but the journey Nikki takes on the road to finding love made for an enjoyable, laugh out loud read. This was my first time reading anything by this author; it won’t be the last.
