Review: The Election Connection

For this review, I chose  The Election Connection by Monica Tillery.  We met 2 other of the characters from this book in The Confection Connection.  We also met Lily during that book, too, but briefly.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Model Lily Ashton’s picture-perfect life isn’t as flawless as it seems. After losing her soldier husband six years ago, Lily’s carved a new life for herself by starting a nonprofit for war widows. There’s no room in her busy schedule, or her heart, for a new love—which makes her the perfect date at fundraisers and parties for her pal, Congressman Ford Richardson.

Ford is focused on winning his bid for re-election, and when his opponent pummels him in the polls because he’s not married, Ford’s advisors give him a choice: find a fiancée or prepare to lose the election. Lily agrees to play the part, and they both vow to separate the election from their emotions. As they work together to keep their secret safe, their not-quite engagement starts to feel much more real than either is ready to admit. 

With Lily’s help, Ford may win the election, but can he win her heart?

This book is such a sweet romance.  It tugs at your emotions so good.  Does everyone deserve a second chance after losing someone they loved so badly?  This book is about putting your past behind you and moving on with your life.  We see Lily trying to do that so badly, but her heart is still so in love with her husband, Nathan, who died while serving his country.  Today is Memorial Day.  We need to remember those who have lost their lives serving our country not just today, but every day.

I can not believe that people believed Ford's running mate about his values on marriage.  Just because he is not married does not mean he does not have a strong belief in marriage.  He just has not found The One.  Does this really happen in election times?

I absolutely love Monica Tillery and will be reading as many books as I can from her!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!  Happy Memorial Day!!
