Review: A Charmed Little Lie

For this review, I chose A Charmed Little Lie by Sharla Lovelace.

I requested an ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:

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...

This is #1 of the Charmed in Texas series.  This is my first book I have read by this author, Sharla Lovelace.  I loved that Lanie Barrett would do anything to make her dying aunt happy.  Now that she told lies to her aunt she is in a pickle!!  Now what will Lanie do?  Get a husband asap or give up?  Get a husband, but where to find one?  Will she lose her only family home she has loved to her cousins, who are very greedy?  Lanie meets Nick at a diner and he gets fired.  He needs a job asap.  Lanie comes up with a her husband.  He says yes!!  Both Lanie and Nick's lie becomes more.
This is in a small town who's tourist attraction is honey!  This book had me laughing a lot.  I can not wait to read the next book, Lucky Charmed, in this series.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
