Review: A Charmed Litte Lie by Sharla Lovelace

Charmed, Texas... quaint, quirky, and when it comes to romance, there's no place quite as enchanting.

Lanie Barrett didn't mean to lie. Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn't it? Lanie thinks so, especially since her beloved Aunt Ruby would have been heartbroken to know the truth of her niece's sadly loveless, short-of-sparkling existence. Trouble is, according to the will, Ruby didn't quite buy Lanie's tale. And to inherit the only house Lanie ever really considered a home, she'll have to bring her "husband" back to Charmed for three whole months--or watch Aunt Ruby's cozy nest go to her weasel cousin, who will sell it to a condo developer.

Nick McKane is out of work, out of luck, and the spitting image of the man Lanie described. He needs money for his daughter's art school tuition, and Lanie needs a convenient spouse. It's a match made... well, not quite in heaven, but for a temporary arrangement, it couldn't be better. Except the longer Lanie and Nick spend as husband and wife, the more the connection between them begins to seem real. Maybe this modern fairy tale really could come true...

5 'Life is messy. Love is messier.' Stars

I'm truly, madly, deeply in love with Sharla Lovelace's latest masterpiece, A Charmed Little Lie. When I get that feeling of butterflies swarming my belly, zings and zaps coursing through my veins, goosebumps from head to toe early in, I know I'm in for a stellar reading adventure.  My booknerd spidey senses haven't led me astray yet!

Lovelace is the Queen-Bee of small-town USA romance, buzzing with emotions, overflowing with swoon, bursting with all the feels, needs, and wants that her readers crave. Story-lines that thrive with uniqueness and never been read before ideas. Beautifully written with such class that make even the sexiest and naughtiest of scenes tasteful and decadent. Her books are the full package.

A Charmed Little Lie is based on a silly little frivolous lie, where baggage meets baggage, and the love of a lifetime blossoms in this first installment of the Charmed in Texas series. Lanie should have known that you can't fool the Barrett intuition. Aunt Ruby was no imbecile, and the reading of her will and months to come prove such.

I had so much fun devouring this book, tapping my way through spectacle after spectacle. I couldn't read fast enough!! Lanie and Nick we're an unstoppable duo, each for their own reasons, ultimately coming together to out-do the villains of the story for the ultimate happily ever after! Lovelace does romance like no other, her works teaching life lessons and self worth throughout. Without losing focus on this story and it's principle characters, Lovelace seamlessly weaved in buildup for the next installment in the series that I can't wait to get my hands on!!
