Chasing Charlie - Kathy Carmichael
How far would you go to make sure your parents lived the life they really wanted?  That's the deliberation of Davis, a wannabe cowboy who has always dreamt of owning his own ranch but had to put that all on hold since he had to take over his fathers business when he died.  Not only that Davis is the handsome bachelor in town who could have his pick of any lady, happy as he is his mother's isn't.  Her only dream is to see her son married, she has even turned down moving to Tokyo with the love of her own life as she cannot leave Davis until he is settled. What is he to do? Davis and his father in law to be, Jim, come up with a plan to find a fiance to show to his mother until she finally agrees to live her own life and be happy.
 
Charlie is one of the town librarians who Davis regularly sees as he continues to study up on his dream ranch, not his usual type but his mother would like her, although there is something about her.....  Charlie encouraged by her roommate to start being more daring in life and take the odd risk accepts to the challenge of being the pretend finance, after all there's no possible chance anything else would happen as she detests cowboys.  Simple enough plan, but will it work out the way they planned or will things take a romantic turn?
 
This was a real quick read, full of fun I found myself smiling and chuckling throughout.  I loved the predicaments they found themselves in, their constant teasing of each other and wondering what would happen next in the storyline.  As I've mentioned before romance isn't my first choice in reading but this surprised me and I actually found myself loving the read, there is a charm to this pair that seems to take hold of you.
 
A nice entertaining read that I really enjoyed, looking forward to book 2 and catching up with everyone yeehaw!!
