The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips is a love story which seems doomed before it even begins. On her way home one stormy night, Hanna Knight rescues a stranded motorist near her father’s farm. After she arrives home, she realizes that the stranded motorist is none other than William Preston, CEO of Foster and Jones and the man who broke her heart in front of millions. They were on a show together called “The Price of Love” a show similar to the Bachelor where he chose Hanna. But later as they did the post show media interviews, one comment ruined her reputation and her life. There is a reason Will is there. His company’s sales have slipped since the show and he needs her help. He proposes a fake engagement to show the world that they are in love and doing well despite the tabloid headlines. She reluctantly agrees and soon she’s back in the spotlight as the media quickly discovers their “reconciliation.” Soon the lies and deceit seems to pile up as another plot to ruin Will’s position with the company is revealed. Will they discover who is behind the plot to destroy Will? Will Hanna and Will discover their true feelings for each other?
The Engagement Plot was a cute and predictable romance story. I enjoyed Will and Hanna and the sparks that flew as they resisted each other and tried to keep each other at bay as they proceed with their plan. Although the ending was expected and some of the plot twists were “duh” moments and the antagonist was as clear as day, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I love a good romance novel and The Engagement Plot is fun, engaging, and heartwarming. I laughed, I cheered and I smiled as I turned the last page. If you enjoy a good romance story, I recommend The Engagement Plot.
