Fresh Fiction Review

Fianc? at Her Fingertips

Debra Daniels is still single; is that such a crime? She's tired of nagging parents, sympathetic friends and too many blind dates to count. She lives and works in Springfield, Illinois, helping crime victims find resources and restitution. But no one seems satisfied with her, all because she hasn't yet found that someone special.

In a novelty shop, Debra finds the perfect solution -- a fake boyfriend in a box, labeled "Fiancé at Your Fingertips," that includes fake love letters, photographs, background information and everything else she needs to pretend she has found true love. As Debra eagerly implements her plan, sending herself flowers and leaving romantic messages from "Lawyer Logan," she's surprised by how well it's working. She's shocked, however, when a real- life man claiming to be her boy friend Logan Alexander turns up at the gym, and then her father's golf course, and then her parent's home and her office at work. As the real version of the fake man that she purchased for less than $20 a few months ago begins to ingratiate himself into her life, Debra is increasingly freaked out by this turn of events. When she finally confronts Logan about what's going on, everything changes. Suddenly, Debra finds herself fighting for what she didn't even know her life was missing -- love.

Kathleen Bacus gives her paranormal romance a little assistance in the form of heavenly intervention to help two people come together who may never have found each other without some help. Logan and Debra are both compassionate, hard-working people, the kind of caring public servants who law offices and government agencies will always benefit from having on staff. I couldn't help but cheer them along, even when it seemed like they'd never both like each other at the same time. The creative idea of a novelty toy coming to life gives this contemporary romance a paranormal twist. If you're in the mood for a unique take on blind dates and finding Mr. Right, check out FIANCÉ AT HER FINGERTIPS.

SUMMARY

Debra Daniels thinks she's found the answer to the age-old question women have been plagued with ever since Eve first said "Why not?" when Adam asked her on a stroll through the Garden. In need of a break from her matchmaking mother and a score of hellish blind dates, to Debra the do-it-yourself boyfriend-in-a-box kit is a gift from Above. Fiance at Your Fingertips: Touted as the single woman's best defense against pitying looks and speculative stares, it comes with everything the single-and-slightly-desperate woman needs to convince friends, family and coworkers that she has indeed found Mr. Right. And "Lawyer Logan" is definitely that. Tall, handsome... and fictitious. Debra is going to have an absolute blast with her faux beau--until he shos up on her doorstep, acting as if he has every right to be there and in her arms.

That'll be the start of a romance truly outside of the box, and where the real fun begins.
