Lucky Leap Day

Walker (Happy Singles Day) transports readers to Dublin in this uproarious romantic comedy about accidental newlyweds attempting to divorce. Recently heartbroken Cara Kennedy decides to go on the three-day vacation she and her ex had booked in Ireland on her own. Upon arriving, her luggage is lost, she’s splashed by mud, and she realizes her jerk ex-boyfriend had the same idea when she sees him outside her hotel. The only silver lining is Finn Maguire, her Uber driver turned tour guide, and his sexy Irish brogue. Finn invites Cara to a Leap Day celebration at a pub where she learns the Irish tradition of women proposing to men on February 29. It’s this, combined with a lot of Irish whiskey, that leads Cara and Finn to wake up married the next morning. With Cara unable to delay her return home, Finn comes with her to Los Angeles to annul their marriage there—but it’s a long process, leaving plenty of time for the pair to grow closer. Walker infuses the story’s first half with wonderful Irish charm, but shifts to a much slower pace once the characters reach L.A. Still, with references to classic rom-coms lending a nostalgic feel throughout, there’s plenty for romance readers to adore. Agent: Pamela Harty, the Knight Agency. (Jan.)
