Campaigning for Christopher is the fourth of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Ummm...that's a lie. Skye, Elise and Margaret simply aren't the sort of girls that share. And frankly, with the election right around the corner, Chris doesn't have any time for love either...)

Christopher Winslow, the youngest of the four Winslow brothers, was born with a silver spoon in his privileged mouth, which has made it difficult for him to establish his credibility in the fast-approaching congressional race. Working against the clock to assure Pennsylvania voters that he is forthright, trustworthy and able has been an exhausting challenge, but Christopher's chances at beating the incumbent look good.

Julianne Crow, a plus-size model struggling to make ends meet, jumps at the chance to make a little extra cash on the side. What does she have to do? Slip something into Christopher Winslow's drink and take some very naughty pictures with him.

But Christopher is nothing like Julianne expected, and when her actions sabotage his hard-earned campaign only a month before the election, her guilt is overwhelming. She offers Christopher her help in an effort to repair the damage she's caused, but can anything change the fact that he sees her as an opportunist and a mercenary? When she starts campaigning for Christopher, he may find out there's more to her than meets the eye.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers!

5 Words for Campaigning for Christopher – mistakes, redemption, forgiveness, destiny, love

 

Campaigning for Christopher is another amazing story from author Katy Regnery! I love that this writer takes chances with creating unique stories and diverse characters.

 

Julianne Crow is a young Indian American woman who recently moved to Philadelphia to become a fashion model. Leaving her home in South Dakota was a tough choice but Julianne knew she had to take a chance on the big city for a bright future. As an Indian American she’s witnessed the discrimination towards her people and herself. So when a mysterious man approaches her to ruin a racist political candidate Julianne jumps at the chance. And the plan works well. The candidate’s name is linked to a scandal and his approval ratings drop. But unbeknownst to Julianne that candidate is Christopher Winslow, not a racist but a strong candidate for Congress whose platform includes human rights, especially the rights of Indian Americans and women. Realizing she made a huge mistake Julianne vows to make a mends, even if Christopher is struggling with his feelings for her. He’s angry and hurt but he can’t help but be attracted to Julianne. Left with no choice but to work together, Christopher and Julianne pretend to be a couple which is proving harder to do. As they get to know each other Julianne can’t stop from falling for him, but even though Christopher he is attracted to her he can’t trust her. Will their shaky beginning ruin their chances of love? You have to read this to find out!!

 

I loved everything about this book! I thought the story stands out from the other romance books because this wasn’t a love at first sight story. This was a lust at first sight that turns into a betrayal. And Julianne is determined to correct her mistake. She made the mistake of using her own experience of racism to judge Christopher. But she works so hard to make things right and I couldn’t help but love her. Julianne is a likeable character that owns up to her mistakes instead of causing blame on others. But Christopher treats Julianne horribly and it took me a while to like him. But as strange as it may seem I actually enjoyed this conflict I had with Christopher. It is a nice change to have a character that you love to hate and still see glimpses of the goodness in him. You can’t blame Christopher for not trusting Julianne. This is a complex love story that I couldn’t get enough of and I was so sad to see it end. This is the final book of The Winslow Brothers and I hate to say good bye. But since this is part of the Blueberry Lane series I know we’ll see this family again.

 

Campaigning for Christopher is perfect for romance fans. It has the perfect amount of drama and romance to satisfy readers. This is written as a standalone. You will fall in love with the writing of Katy Regnery and should start with Breaking Up With Barrett, the first book of The Blueberry Lane series.

 

Favorite (non-spoiler) quote:

 

Your eyes are like the night sky. The universe. The heavens and a million stars.

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
