Review - ‘The Last Thing She Needs is a Husband’ by Julie Kavanagh


Blurb 

To save the family business, Katherine Collins must marry one of two men, both of whom are unsuitable and time is running out.Every girl dreams of a Christmas Eve wedding but when independent Katherine is faced with marriage to either her greedy second cousin or her sexy but bossy ex-boyfriend, she doesn’t know what to do. Katherine knows that marriage to either man would be a disaster, but her defiant heart says differently. 
Ross is still gorgeous and his smile is definitely still sexy, but their relationship went very wrong last time. Could they make it work this time or is Cousin Charles a better option for a lasting marriage? 
Can she trust her future to a man from her past? 


Review

Katherine has been running the family business on her own for the past three years after her beloved uncle grew ill. To inherit the business, however, she must marry two men of her deceased uncle’s choosing: her second cousin, Charles, or her ex-boyfriend Ross. Both men already know of the arrangement and are trying to win her hand, but she has only two months to decide (she must marry by Christmas) or she’ll lose the business.
Though it’s obvious which man she’ll choose, the twist at the end was a total surprise. The romance and misplaced resentment between Katherine and Ross felt real. She struggled with the choice because of her independent nature and she fought her uncle’s Will all the way to the end.
Though the whole ‘marrying your cousin in the modern age’ bit threw me through a loop at first, everything made sense with the twist at the end. I definitely enjoyed this book.
5 Stars
