I was first introduced to author Catherine Bybee's works last year with Not Quite Dating and she has become one of my new favorite writers, so I was more than eager to review the third book in the The Weekday Bride Series titled Fiancé by Friday, which I received free of charge in exchange for my honest thoughts.

Gwen Harrison's life hasn't exactly been average as she is technically referred to as "Lady" since her father is an English duke! After her brother married, she took over her sister-in-law's business, a matchmaking firm called Alliance, where she helps the high-class find the perfect match. She has started to feel like a normal human being since moving to America, but then her brother sends her surprise - a bodyguard.

Neil McBain's years as a marine has helped me become the head of security for the Duke, but he has finally met his match, that is with the Duke's sister Gwen, who he is instantly attracted to. He is a man of few words and tries to do his best to ignore his feelings toward his new client. Strange happenings occur, dead birds suddenly appear, the security system goes wacky, and the neighbors seem to be a bit odd.

Is someone after Lady Harrison? Or is Neil's deadly past coming out of the shadows?

I was expecting something completely different; mostly because of the man carrying the woman on the book cover, I thought it would be a strictly romance novel, but instead it was a romantic thriller, which I think is even better. I missed out on the first two books in the series (Wife by Wednesday and Married by Monday), but Fiancé by Friday is more of the standalone type. With well-written characters, an exciting plot full of action, mystery, and of course romance, I found myself reading the book in one sitting. The author Catherine Bybee keeps getting better with each new book. Overall, I enjoyed reading Fiancé by Friday and I recommend it other romance readers. Look out for book four Single by Saturday coming in 2014.

  1. Thanks for the review! The covers follow the titles of my books in this series. I too was shocked at how much suspense I needed to tell Neil and Gwen's story.

    I'm glad you liked it.

  2. Hello, Catherine. I really need to find out how Neil and Gwen solve the mystery and reach their HEA. I'm waiting for payday to get the book. BTW, how's the smoke in the L.A. area? Awful up here in Sacramento.

  3. @Janice Hougland

    No smoke. Our fire situation isn't an issue so far this year. I think the winds from mid-state are blowing your way.

    Enjoy Neil and Gwen's story.
    Thanks for stopping by.
