Oh my what a thrill ride this was. The writing of this father/son duo is so easy to read. There were no good places to pause on this one. If you blinked you missed some important clue.
Things start to go wrong with Cam and no one can figure out why. The White House physician is suggesting therapy but this guy is shady at best and I did not have a good feeling about him.
Karen, the ex-wife of Lee Blackwood is head of security for the first family and when things just don’t feel right, she suggests an outside consult with Lee. Lee is convinced there is something medically wrong here, but gets a lot of push back from the doctor as well as from the president. The doctor and the president have long been friends and their sons are as well.
To be perfectly honest, about 13% in I smugly thought I had figured out who was the bad guy and who was the good guy. Let me just say I was so wrong.
I could not read this fast enough. Because it is possible. And that is what has you questioning a lot of things right here in the real world.
Great job to the Palmers! Can’t wait to see what’s next!

Never say never when it comes to love.
Greer Jones has made a real name for herself at the elegant matchmaking agency Two Love Lane. For a lot of reasons—including a past engagement she broke off—practical tech expert Greer is more interested in the business of love than the experience of it, but she can’t help but covet a gorgeous wedding gown that’s the prize in an upcoming cocktail-party contest. In a moment of brazen inspiration, Greer asks a handsome Brit she’s only just met to accompany her to the party. He agrees—and Greer believes her date is a starving artist. Little does she know the truth. . .
Ford Smith, as he calls himself, is actually Stanford Elliott Wentworth Smythe, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. Fresh off a breakup with a money-grubbing siren who deceived him all the way to the altar, Ford has no desire to fall in love—especially with Greer who, like the desired wedding gown, is beautiful but only skin-deep. But soon Ford realizes that there’s more to Greer than meets the eye. Her professionalism is matched only by her passion for life and love. . .and, best of all, she has no idea that he’s to the manor born. Could it be that true love is priceless after all?
This is the second book in the Two Love Lane series. In the first book Macy finds love and now it looks as if it could be Greer’s turn!
The entire funny, quirky, and charming characters that make up Two Love Lane are back and they haven’t changed a bit! I love every one of these characters.
The future bride contest to win the Royal Bliss gown, a wedding gown with a magical history, is narrowed down to five women. One of whom is engaged to Greer’s ex! They must all compete in three challenges and the winner takes the dress.
Now the only issue is who she can persuade to be her pretend groom. And when it comes down to decision time, will she choose the dress or the Englishman?
Lovely story! This one comes out January 02, 2018 St. Martins Press/Netgalley
