I did a guest blog by Catherine Castle two weeks ago on how A Groom for Mama came about, and just finished this delightful read yesterday! Highly recommend! It is laugh-out-loud funny even though there is a death in the end.
As you can see from the blurb below, you know the Mama is dying from the beginning, although the daughter thinks it might be a ploy to marry her off. And the funny parts come from the dates Allison goes on since she and her Mama make a deal that she will take a treatment for every date Allison makes. One of the funniest is when Allison is swept away on horseback by a re-enactor posing as a medieval knight.
The romance comes in from her ex-boyfriend Jack who accompanies them on their trip because he will do anything for Mama or Allison. And there is a surprise ending that wraps it all up happily. So, if you like to read fun romances like I do, this is the book for you! You can always go back to the September 8th post and see her other info and buy links.
Beverly Walters is dying, and before she goes she has one wish—to find a groom for her daughter. To get the deed done, Mama enlists the dating service of Jack Somerset, Allison’s former boyfriend.
The last thing corporate-climbing Allison wants is a husband. Furious with Mama’s meddling, and a bit more interested in Jack than she wants to admit, Allison agrees to the scheme as long as Mama promises to search for a cure for her terminal illness.
A cross-country trip from Nevada to Ohio ensues, with a string of disastrous dates along the way, as the trio hunts for treatment and A Groom For Mama.
