    Summary

    “Bucky’s not my—“ my anything, Sarah almost said, before she swallowed the automatic denial.

    Dina was going to be here until the new year. Sarah knew from experience that her mother-in-law could fit a lot of introductions, and blind dates masquerading as friendly dinners, and just plain set-ups into those weeks. The woman was more relentless than a Match.com subscription. But here was an easy way to avoid all of that, and all it would take was one harmless little white lie.

    “It’s new and we haven’t really put a label on it yet,” she said. “Just seeing how things go, taking it slow, you know?”

    Bucky and Sarah have busy holiday seasons ahead of them: Bucky's reconnecting with his family, and Sarah's former mother-in-law has come to stay for her annual holiday visit. As if that wasn't enough, Sarah and Bucky both have to deal with well-meaning relatives trying to set them up with other people when that's the last thing they want or need. There's a simple solution to that problem though, in the form of one little white lie to get them through the stressful holiday season. They can claim to be dating each other.

    Like a hallmark movie, but with more depth, and it's so nice to see the fake dating trope with fully mature people who aren't being unrealistically oblivious.
