Ms. Faye is a fairly new to me author, and I look forward to reading more of her books.


The Description

Wedding Bells at Lake Como: Book 2
Publication Date: August 24, 2021

Will their business deal…
…give them more than they bargained for?

To appease her overbearing father, Carla told him that she’s engaged. She doesn’t, however, have a fiancé…yet! That’s where Franco comes in—if they marry temporarily, she’ll ensure that both of their companies will mutually benefit. Since neither wants a relationship, saying “I do” is strictly for business. But with their undeniable chemistry, can they keep it that way?



Falling For Her Convenient Groom is the second book in the Wedding Bells at Lake Como series by Jennifer Faye, and it was like I never left. We are reunited with Carla and Franco, along with his brother, Dario, and her cousin, Gianna, who are husband and wife. 

When Carla proposes to Franco so she can take over the reins of her family’s business while her father fully recovers from his heart attacks, Carla sweetens the deal for Franco that his family’s spices will be part of her restaurants where they had been many years before until there was a falling out between her father and his grandfather. Would that be enough for him to be on board with their marriage of convenience?

Carlo and Franco seem at ease with each other almost immediately. They seem to have feelings for each other, but they only tend to communicate about business, so neither one knows what the other is thinking or feeling. The characters have a depth to them, and there are many family secrets that we learn about a little at a time. There are twists and turns to the story that takes place at Lake Como and Verona, Italy, and the story held my interest throughout. There are lots of family along with negotiations, business dealings, lies, truths, and some surprises. There were vivid descriptions of the homes and businesses that made me feel like I was there. The prologue sets the stage and the epilogue, which takes place five months after the story ends, gave me the closure I look for along with the better than expected happily ever after. The cover drew me in.

Ms. Faye is a fairly new to me author, and I look forward to reading more of her books.

JoAnne Weiss, nee Montalbano, was born and raised in NYC until moving to CT with her family when she was 16 and she's never left. Married for 41 years with one grown son, she works in an elementary school office where she's been since it opened in 2003. Prior to that, she was an accountant in several corporations before becoming a stay at home mom for 12 years. JoAnne enjoys reading, traveling, spending time with her family, and extended family as well as with friends. She enjoys cooking and rarely uses a recipe the way it was intended but instead uses them and cooking shows to give her new ideas and suggestions. JoAnne has a huge bucket list of places she'd like to visit but has been lucky enough to travel to England, Italy, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and many states in the U.S. including Hawaii, California, Nevada, Arizona, and Maine among others. Some of JoAnne's favorite genres include contemporary romance, chick-lit, romantic suspense, and historical romances including regency and those set in the west. JoAnne is on several author's street teams and enjoys interacting with many of them on Facebook as well as reading their newsletters. She has been lucky enough to meet some of her favorite authors among them Susan Mallery, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts, Meg Tilly, Beatriz Williams, and Marie Bostwick. JoAnne took a road trip with her sister in the fall of 2019 and visited Nora Roberts' bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland for an authors' signing. She hopes to do more of this in the future. JoAnne leaves reviews for all books she reads on Goodreads and her reviews can be found at JoAnne currently reviews for - and which is on hiatus. Previously she reviewed for which has since closed. Payment is in the form of receiving free books to read and review. Her mantra is too many books and not enough time!
