married til mondayBook Description:

With a big anniversary party in the works for his ex-wife’s parents, Ryan has just one weekend to play Abby’s husband . . . and win back the woman of his dreams. Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive two-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight into his lap. Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party. Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Summer Harbor, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

donna update headshotDonna’s Review:

Married till Monday is part of the Chapel Springs Hill series with the McKinley family. The book can be read alone but if you have been reading the series you know Ryan is still struggling with the divorce from his wife, Abby. Ryan finds out that Abby never told her parents about the divorce which opens the opportunity for him to attend their anniversary party with her. Ryan has the opportunity to get close to her in the long drive there and as they play husband and wife for the weekend as they stay with her parents. Abby has a strained relationship with her dad and as the relationship continues to be strained, Ryan learns more about Abby and what makes her tick. Although Abby may frustrate you at times when she turns away from Ryan’s herculean efforts to win her back, you will understand her better as her story is revealed. I loved that Abby was a private investigator and very good at it. Hunter creates some very human scenes between Ryan and Abby both in the present and as they recollect on how they could have handled the past better. On a side note when they are at the anniversary party you will meet Beau and if you want to learn more about his story you will have to wait till the fall of 2015 for Falling Like Snowflakes
