Cute, just cute as can be. Read it in one day. Love the series.
Oh. My. God. Where do I start?!
Let's start with the stupid setup: we have Josh McInnes - god of all men, apparently - who wanted to get married, so that he could have babies, etc, etc, etc. One look at Caroline, and he was all for proposing his marriage arrangement with her.
Then, we have this GOD OF A MAN railroading her every, single wish. Forget talking with her, and communicating. Nope. Communication between the both of them progressed thus: Caroline saying that she wanted things done one way ...more

Delightfully Light Romantic Comedy!
This was a very quick, but entertaining read!. I loved the premise: busy American celebrity, Josh, is disillusioned with the groupies , one-night stands, and women fawning over him, his money and his fame. He is ready to settle down and have kids, but not with any of the women he has been dating. He buys a castle in Scotland for use as a sound studio and vacation home. Then he demands his agent, Mitch, search out appropriate candidates for an "arranged marriage ...more
★★★★★Goody Two Shoes(Invertary, Book 2) by Janet Elizabeth Henson
I was given this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
I thought Lingerie Wars was funny and loved it, so I was very excited for book 2. It did not disappoint.
I just could not stop laughing.
Ms. Janet's writing style. I don't generally read romantic comedies, but her books are hilarious.
I haven't had any champagne tonight, lol.

Many laughs and many old friends from Invertary return to confuse, confound and complicate the pursuit of matrimony. Caroline is an everywoman full of quirks and the desire to control EVERYTHING around her and Josh is just wonderful. He co ...more
This story got off to a good start. A fun premise of a mega-star singer, tired of the groupies and Barbie clones, asks his manager to pick out a “normal” girl for him. She is blind-sided by the proposal but for reasons of her own, accepts. The story is about their journey to matrimony. The main male character, Josh, is strong and well depicted. He is a hero if for no other reason than he has more patience than Job. His sidekick/manager is also a good guy. The town in Scotland is full of quirky c ...more
A couple of points in this book made me stop and think about dnf'ing
1. Weddings in Scotland don't work like that. Do your research:
FROM: I Want to Get Married in Scotland. How Do I Go About It? (all I did was Google it)
... You should also be aware that, whether you intend to have a civil marriage ceremony solemnised by a registrar or a religious/belief marriage ceremony solemnised by an approved celebrant, you must by law lodge marriage notice forms and the associated documents, and pay the st ...more
