Three Day Fiancee is a wonderfully light romantic comedy. I read this book as a bit of a refresher after finishing a few quite intense stories. It was ideally suited to this role. It is an engaging story with many funny and romantic moments, perfect for relaxation.
Marissa Clarke is a new to me author, but I enjoyed her writing so much I have already purchased Dear Jane (Animal Attraction #1) and Sleeping with the Boss (Andersons #1). I’m always looking for authors whose writing style I find both engrossing and relaxing. Through my work and study, I read a lot heavy, technical literature, and this combined with my love of intensely emotional fiction means that I’m always on the lookout for authors I can use to refresh and rest while still thoroughly enjoying what I’m reading. Marissa Clarke is shaping up to be a regular feature on my bookshelf.
Marissa’s writing flowed well, and the transitions between the points of view of Caitlyn and Taylor were smooth and at logical junctures. I can already tell this author has a sense of humour I appreciate. I’ve really come to enjoy the fake fiancee trope, when handled with humour, it presents so many opportunities for fun and often cringe-worthy situations. This book is a perfect representation of this with the shenanigans involving Taylor’s family being a highlight of the story. I loved how all characters were really well developed, and it was easy to form connections with them. Obviously, Jane’s story has already been told, and I need to play catch up with that one, but I’m really looking forward to Fiona’s book, which I’m assuming will be the next in the series. She is such a shy wallflower, it will be lovely to watch her bloom.
I’d recommend Marissa Clarke’s Three Day Fiancee to anyone who enjoys a good romantic comedy heavy on both the romance and the comedy.
