Engaged at The Chatsfield

Engaged at The Chatsfield
The Chatsfield Prequel
Melanie Milburne
Juliet has been in love with her brother's best friend Marcus for as long as she can remember. So while at a friend's hen party she lets it slip that Marcus is her fiance. She never expects him to show up at the hotel. He isn't exactly thrilled to be playing a part to her impulsiveness, but agrees to play along. 

I was given a paper copy of this book. So until the book arrived in my hands, I was unaware of how tiny the book would be. It is 74 pages long. So while the premise of the story is fun, it just felt way too rushed. The male character goes from barely knowing the female character existed to wanting marriage in just a couple of days. Because the story is so short, the characters lacked development and none of the sub characters or stories were completed. It left me feeling frustrated that it ended so abruptly, instead of wanting to read more. 
And just a tiny pet peeve. The woman on the cover isn't even remotely close to the description in the book.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
