Blog Tour - Countdown to Love by Julie N. Ford

Synopsis ~~ Abandoned at the altar, Kelly Grace Pickens finds herself left holding not only the bouquet, but also the exorbitant bill for an A-list wedding. Homeless, a once-promising singing career floundering, and her life bearing an uncanny resemblance to one of her country music ballads, she reluctantly accepts a last-minute offer to appear on a reality TV show akin to The Bachelor. 

Pitted against silicon-enhanced supermodels in four-inch heels, Kelly feels confident that she will be among the first would-be fiancĂ©es to be excused. Only, when the mysterious bachelor from New York City, Dillon Black, invites her to stay, Kelly finds herself thrust into the vortex of a game she doesn’t have the first idea how to play. Nursing her hopelessly broken heart while avoiding the foils of her fellow contestants, Kelly is oblivious to Dillon’s affections as she wades through hurt and betrayal to discover, in the end, that she has landed firmly on both feet.

Leaving behind Nashville’s Music Row for the majestic Grand Teton Mountains, Count Down To Love takes readers on a journey from duplicity to sincerity as Kelly discovers that being true to oneself is the first step in finding happiness and everlasting love.

Count Down to Love is a great book! I'll just get that out of the way, right off the bat.

The premise of the story is based on the Bachelor reality show, one gorgeous cowboy trying to decide which beautiful woman he wants to fall in love with. I have to admit that I am not into these types of shows. I know some people that are, shall we say, addicted to them? But the fact that I don't watch them did not make any difference in how much I enjoyed this book.

Kelly agrees to go on the Count Down to Love reality show to make oodles of money to pay for her wedding that didn't happen. She never guessed that she would be so instantly attracted to Dillon, the bachelor on the show. The story has a lot of twists and turns and one is never sure if the story is going to have a happy ending or not, right to the very end.

This is a very enjoyable read with very likable characters and it is very well written. I lost myself in the story and and had a great time. It is a nice, clean romance with a little suspense thrown in. I highly recommend it and I will be checking out this author's other books.
