What would you do if you ran into your old flame from college? What would you do if he asked you to pretend to be his wife for a weekend?

Gwen Merchant has been thrust into this exact situation. She runs into Elliot Hull at an ice cream shop and learns that he has lied to his dying mother. But that’s not all! You see, Gwen is married. And running into Elliot is a painful reminder of the life (and love) she could have had.

So, Gwen does act as Elliot’s pretend wife. She spends an extended weekend at a lake house with Elliot, his dying mother, his sister, and his niece. Everything changes for Gwen, of course.

Although the writing is a little clunky at the beginning, this is a romance worth reading.
