A Husband For Danna by Christina Lorenzen
 
If you are looking for a feel-good-factor rom-com then Christina Lorenzen's A Husband For Danna fits the bill. It's a very 'visually and well written 'fun' book, and I felt I was 'there' most of the time, and loved the descriptions of small-town America settings.

Blurb:
Off and running! In her frenzied quest to escape from a groom her father has chosen for her, Danna Rashba ‘borrows’ a limousine parked on Main Street. The last thing on her mind is finding a groom from another wedding in the backseat. What are the chances that the bride and groom from two different weddings running from the altar on the same day? The last thing Danna wants is a hostage as she tries to escape from her nuptials.
The last thing Eric Harmon wants is to be saddled with yet another spoiled, needy woman. He’s furious about this wrench in his plans, he accuses Danna of stealing. He wants to send her home in a cab as soon as they get to the nearest town, but Danna refuses. Much to Eric’s frustration, one thing after another seems to keep them tied together.
Soon the generosity of a local shopkeeper and several people in town have them mistaken for newlyweds. Danna and Eric find themselves stepping into the role as husband and wife leading them to realize they just may be each other’s ‘match’. But will Danna be able to stand up to her rigid, old fashioned father and choose her own husband?
 
Book Beginning...
Panting from the short dash from the church to the curb, Danna looked around wild-eyed, spotting a limo at the curb. The fact that it wasn't her bridal party's limousine didn't matter. She ran around to the driver's side and flung open the door.
 
 
 
pg 56...
Unlike her intended husband, Eric's nose couldn't have been more perfect if it had been special-ordered. Where Nagpal's cheekbones hid beneath fleshy cheeks, Eric's were prominent. Though she had taken back the pretty boy label, she still thought he had to be a model.

This sounds like a really fun and lovely book, but I really like how the author isn't avoiding the cultural background and Danna's struggle with her family! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!

This sounds really cute. It's been too long since I've read a romance. Click on my name for my Beginning and 56.

I'm intrigued! I love the kind of forced together situation. It always makes for fun reading.

That's a great beginning -- right in the middle of the action. Sounds like a fun, light-hearted book that I'd enjoy.

I really like your Friday 56. The way a man's nose is shaped is really important to me. Nothing like a "fine" nose.:)
