When her friends set her up with Jon, a wedding DJ, Greta, who is always the bridesmaid, decides to orchestrate a series of fake dates designed to trick her friends into thinking she’s putting herself out there—until the sparks really begin to fly
Friends don’t let friends marry the wrong man. But where, oh where, is Mr. Right?
In high school, Greta Steinburg and her two BFFs made a pact: none of them would get married unless they all approved the man in question. Since then, Greta has had her fair share of romantic ups and downs—but now, after her latest failed relationship, she is done. Greta announces that her days of dating are officially over, and she’s kissed the idea of happily-ever-after goodbye. . .
Of course her friends will hear none of it. Instead, they insist that Greta go out with Jon, the hottest new DJ who just happened to be at her sister’s wedding. To get her friends off her back, Greta proposes that they pretend to date. The only problem is, for every fake date they have—from feeding angry rhinos to crashing a kiddie roller-skating party—Jon wants a real one. Each time they get together, their attraction grows. . .and soon there’s no turning back. Could it be that true love requires a leap of faith—and that Jon is the one Greta’s been waiting for all along?
Kayti McGee’s That Thing You Do is a charmingly sexy novel about finding love in the least likely place.
