Thirty Days Hath

Title: Thirty Days Hath

Author: Chautona Havig

Genre: Christian Fiction

Publisher: Chautona Havig

Source: Kindle Own

My review:

I know I downloaded Thirty Days Hath simply because of the cover (I must have books if they have a wedding dress on the front!). It had been languishing on my Kindle for over two years, and I regret not getting to it sooner! 

 First of all, Thirty Days Hath is not your typical Christian fiction storyline. A guy has a girl (and her chaperone) move in with him for a month to see if they are compatible?! Say what?! I was intrigued from the first line. 

Adric's brother-in-law picks the first three months, and Adric chooses the women for the rest of the year. At the beginning of each month is a profile of the woman for that month.

This book has more depth than expected and has a few surprises along the way. I loved how Adric was with his family. I enjoyed their interactions and closeness. I appreciated how Adric attempted to make each woman feel at home in his house. I also appreciated the boundaries he set.

Thirty Days Hath is unpredictable, unique, and mostly a light read, with depth and quite a few LOL moments. I was VERY invested in this story, talking to the characters, rooting for them, and at times so very disappointed. I have no idea how Chautonia Havig made each of the twelve women so unique and each month so different, but she did. I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance.


Synopsis (Goodreads):

Blind Dates Are for Wimps!

At least, that’s what Adric Garrison thinks.
Can you blame him? Thanks to his sister and brother-in-law, Adric is about to embark on a year of month-long, chaperoned, blind dates. awkward.
He didn’t ask for it. But Adric still finds himself living what seems more like a bad TV reality show than a new life in Fairbury.
Once an ordinary (if prematurely gray and vertically challenged) guy, Adric is now Fairbury’s newest “most eligible bachelor,” and dreams of permanent bachelorhood loom on the horizon. Will he call it quits before the year is out, or will one of his “girls of the month” change his mind?

One man, twelve women, one happily ever after.

  4. What a crazy scenario. I am intrigued by your love for wedding dresses. Is there a story behind this?

    1. Kami, nope. I just LOVE weddings in books and books with wedding dresses really capture my attention.
