Book Review & Giveaway ~ Chasing Charlie by Kathy Carmichael

Raised in a family of rodeo champions on a South Texas cattle ranch, Charlie wants only one thing: to avoid thrill-seeking cowboys.

Davis Murphy, cowboy wannabe and one of Dallas’s most eligible bachelors, needs a pretty and witty faux fiancée so his widowed mother will marry her longtime gentleman friend.

Charlie, his local librarian, seems the prefect choice.

Charlie’s first reaction is to run, but she’s promised herself to step out of her plain-jane routine.

When Charlie accepts, Davis’s plan is set. But now Charlie’s sweet ways are challenging his bachelor heart.

My Thoughts:

Chasing Charlie is a fun, witty, lighthearted romance ~ perfect for a day at the beach or poolside.

Charlie is a librarian whose life seems to be in a rut. After losing someone in a rodeo accident, she never wants anything to do with a cowboy again. She left her family’s ranch after the death of her parents to live in the big city and has always played it safe. She decides to take a small step toward being less withdrawn and putting herself out there. That first step was buying, and actually daring to wear, a silky, sexy red dress.

Davis Murphy is a very successful businessman and one of Dallas’s most eligible bachelors. He dreams of someday owning a ranch and of being a rodeo cowboy.

He needs to convince his mother that he has found the love of his life and will soon be settling down and getting married.

Here’s the fun part … he decides he needs a fake finance’ to introduce to his mother. If he is happily engaged to be married, he believes she will agree to marry her gentleman friend (who has been proposing to her for a long, long time). He begs Charlie to go along with the charade …

Let me just say … Oh the tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive … (thanks, Sir Walter Scott)

I highly recommend going along on this adventure with Charlie and Davis … it’s a fun and relaxing way to spend the day 🙂
