Publisher's Summary

Modern Conveniences is a new series featuring contemporary marriages of convenience.

As a widowed, single mom, Lyndsey Allen has a load of financial troubles. Despite her best efforts to stay afloat, she faces foreclosure. With a young son to consider, she needs a miracle - and quick - but pride won't let her accept money from a longtime friend.

When handyman Shep Patterson promised his best friend that he'd look after Lyndsey should anything happen to him, he never imagined that would include marriage...yet a proposal slips from his mouth.

Lyndsey accepts his proposal, shocking them both. Will their marriage of convenience hold just as many surprises?

Loved It!

I loved, loved, loved this sweet story! I listened to over half of it on audio book and the narration was really good. Then, I switched to reading it on ebook, as that was more convenient for me at the time, and I zoomed through the story, hardly able to set it down.

The growth from friends to a married couple to actual attraction and love was beautifully and believably done. This marriage of convenience story was a sweet read and the relationship between Lyndsey and Shep was so wonderful. I also enjoyed that the little boy was believable in this novel.

This was my first book to read from this author and now I look forward to reading many more.

Not modern at all

For a story under "Modern Conveniences" the language is sadly antiquated. These are supposed to be young adults in current times and the language is so off-base & unrealistic it's impossible to connect with the characters. One of only a handful of books I've quit reading mid-story in my life.

Enchanting

A lovely story of new beginnings and reminders of God's grace and good plan. We already know the ending. It is the journey and roads traveled that make the story.

Good

For me this book was just okay. My gut is telling me that it would have been better with a different narrator.

Very sweet, well done Christian romance.

This is a very sweet and loving story. The author did a really good job with a plot that, in this day and age, might not seem plausible. Both of the main characters are quite charming and genuine. I found myself caring about them and what happened to them. I would definitely read more by this author.

Narrator read in a very monotonous voice.

Also, the story was developed too slow to hold my interest even if the idea behind it was good.

Started as a Friendship

The storyline was good. The recoding was good, but the narration was lacking... it was hard to follow and hard to know what was actually going on (some areas were thoughts of a character- but it wasn’t clear that those things weren’t actually spoken as narrated). But overall I’d listen to it again and recommend it for those who don’t always have time to sit with a book- like me. Author did change voice to distinguish between the characters.
