Trust me HP readers, this one is a gem. These two start up a masquerade as husband and wife in order to make the last days of the hero's mother unstressfull. The down on her luck heroine is strong and plucky with a level head and a great sense of humor. The hero is pretty beta in a bewildered, befuddled but sincerely nice and giving way. When the hero's mother seems to be getting better, the masquerade spirals out of control. Great main characters especially the heroine. Because the story is told entirely in her POV, you know her better. The secondary characters are fully realized and great in their own rights. The end was just a slight bit short with the I love yous but probably only because I like the characters to really wallow around in the love fest at the end.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and I highly recommend it. ( )

Book description
It was for the sake of that dear old lady, Mrs. Harnby, that Patricia agreed to the fantastic suggestion that she should masquerade for a few days as Michael Harnby's wife. How was she to know that the deception would spread wider and wider until she even had to make the man she loved believe that she was indeed married to Michael? The tense and yet entertaining situation keeps its interest right up to the ingenious and unexpected ending — an ending brought about by the masterful intervention of that fragile mother whom everyone had been trying to protect.
