Save the Date is a lively and enjoyable romance novel by Jenny B. Jones. The plot sounds like a light romantic comedy – single young woman pretends to be the wife of an attractive ex-football star running for Congress to improve his chances of being elected, and in return, he makes a donation to the non-profit organization she is in charge of to keep it from closing. Of course, they can’t stand each other at first, and there are many interesting plot twists to keep us reading late into the night.
But the thing I liked most about this book was the subtle underlying message that all of us have insecurities and things in our past that we would not want revealed. That’s a message that most of us struggle with, yet we still seem to think that we’re the only ones who have problems. Jones’ characters may move in a higher social circle than most of us, but their problems are familiar to everyone, and Jones deals with their issues with grace and humor, showing how God helps us grow wherever we are at in our Christian walk.
