Lisa is about to marry the love of her life and have the wedding of her dreams, but her world is shattered when she finds her fiancé, Jeff, in the arms of another woman. When he calls the wedding off and struts around town with his new love, Lisa is heartbroken, and she wants revenge. She gets it by marrying a total stranger from Poland who she found on Mail-Order-Grooms.Com. He needs a green card to stay in America, and he’s willing to pay money for it. Lisa thinks he’s the perfect answer. It won’t be a real marriage, and her best friend Daphne insists she won’t even have to live with him. Lisa races to the altar with her stand-in groom and says “I do”, but she soon discovers that revenge isn’t as sweet or as simple as she thought it would be. Will she find love in the end?
I received a copy of this book from Irresistible Reads Tours to provide an honest review.

I wanted to read this book when I saw the synopsis. Lisa was about to marry Jeff, but then she found him with another woman. Now the wedding is off. Lisa was heartbroken and ashamed to tell everyone that Jeff dumped her. She wanted revenge. Lisa decided to find a new groom through the internet and go through the wedding with a total stranger. She met Krzysztof, a guy from Poland who needed to marry an American for a green card. Lisa thought that it would be easy, but soon found out that everything was not as simple as she thought.

I read Mail-Order Groom within one sitting. I found that the plot was very intriguing. There were lots of humorous moments that made me laugh. I love the craziness that Lisa went through to marry Krzysztof. It was very entertaining; I wish the story was a bit longer. I wanted to see a lot more moments between Lisa and Krzysztof and how they come to like each other. But still. Mail-Order Groom was definitely a fun, short read.
About the Author:

My name is Cindy Flores Martinez. I was born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles. I have an MFA in Creative Writing with an emphasis in Screenwriting. I have been a screenwriting instructor, screenplay consultant, script reader, and screenplay collaborator. My debut novel, Mail-Order Groom, which was inspired by my own Polish ancestry, started out as a screenplay and movie project. I spent years shopping it around Hollywood, New York, and other parts of the world and had two well-known actors, one of them Academy Award nominated, interested in portraying the lead character’s parents. After not finding the success I wanted, I officially canceled my film production company in November of 2009 and embarked on the journey of turning my screenplay into a novel.


  1. Sounds like an interesting book! And fun too!

  2. Thank you for taking the time to read and write a review of my novel Mail-Order Groom in February, which I was made aware of today. I just want to let readers know that the book was revised and republished since the review. The book that's available today is a new and improved version.
