Review: Honeysuckle Dreams by Denise Hunter



About the book: 

After Brady Collins’ ex-wife dies, he receives devastating news—his nine-month-old son Sam isn’t his son at all. And Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents want custody of the child. Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. But regardless of what any blood test says, Sam is his son, and Brady will go to any lengths to keep him.

Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiance.

Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and after a happy accident she’s finally offered her dream job. But if the truth comes out about her arrangement with Brady, she may miss the chance of a lifetime and stand in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.

As Brady and Hope make sacrifices to help each other in their times of need, they risk uncovering a truth neither of them expects to find.

My thoughts:

Honeysuckle Dreams was just what I expect from a Denise Hunter novel. The story was engaging, the characters likeable, and the romance was amazing. I loved the contemporary marriage of convenience storyline; it was unique to have it in a contemporary setting and I think the way it was done was great.

After being introduced to both Brady and Hope in Blue Ridge Sunrise, I was eager to read their story and see how everything played out. Brady just lost his ex-wife and Hope has her own heartache. The reasons for their to decision to get married were realistic and I liked how they were up-front about their expectations and that they would "court" with the intentions of it leading to a "true marriage" in the future.

All in all, Honeysuckle Dreams was a wonderful contemporary read. After being disappointed in the first book, Blue Ridge Sunrise, I am so happy that this book was typical Denise Hunter fiction and I recommend it to fans of contemporary romance! I cannot wait to read the next book, On Magnolia Lane.
