Chasing Charlie (book review)

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.

“Heartwarming, fast paced, laugh out loud fun.” ~ Susan Fox, Best-selling author

“Funny, sweet, poignant…best feel-good book I’ve read all year.”~ Trish Jensen, USA TODAY Best-selling author

"A once innocent plan becomes an entangled romance . Funny and sweet. A most entertaining combination."~ Carol Bozovich, Rendevzous Magazine

My Review:

I can completely see this book made into a movie.  It's a total romantic comedy.  (I'm a huge Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon fan... this book could totally fit into their movie category.)  I was amazed that as I was reading I kept thinking "this totally wouldn't happen in real life" but the more I got into the story the more I absolutely loved it.  The family relationships in the book may have been my favorite thing.  The way Davis would do anything for his mother's happiness.  The way Charlie interacted with her 2 big brothers.  Seeing how their family history really effected their logical ideas... but just couldn't quite control their hearts.  It was really a fun read, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of Kathy Carmichael's Texas Two-Step series.
