The Deputy's Perfect Match

GIVEAWAY

CARTER, LISA
THE DEPUTY'S PERFECT MATCH

His Librarian Sweetheart...

Still nursing old heartache, deputy sheriff Charlie Pruitt vowed he'd never get close to another woman again. But that's easier said than done when librarian Evy Shaw arrives in his small coastal Virginia town with a secret -- one Charlie's determined to uncover. When Charlie joins Evy's all-female book club, he gets more than he anticipated when the romantic reads strike a real attraction to Evy. Falling for the pretty librarian wasn't part of the plan, but when the truth behind Evy's suspicious behavior comes to light, will love be enough to bind them together?

My Review:

Romantic comedy perfection! I'm totally fan-girling over the librarian heroine! And the fact that she wears glasses (get a load of that cover!) because myopic girls deserve love too. :-) Especially with heroes like wise-cracking Superdeputy Charlie.

The banter in this novel is so outrageously good. And that's because Charlie takes great delight in pushing Miss Librarian's buttons. "It was kind of fun to wind her up and set her off -- like watching a jewelry box ballerina go all dashboard hula girl." (p. 40) There are so many awesome scenes -- the kind you see in a classic romantic comedy -- that are sheer delight to read. I laughed so much! And the ending -- stupendous fun. I'm still grinning.

But there are touching scenes too as Carter explores the long lasting effects childhood experiences hold. Evy is held captive by the past, to the point that she has become a chameleon, quick to blend into the background. Charlie has a hand a drawing her out and watching Evy grow into her true self makes for an inspiring read.

If you love to laugh and swoon simultaneously while wiping away a tear or two then this is the perfect book for you.

  16. I purchased this one a few days ago during Harlequin.com's BOGO sale. After your review of Coast Guard Sweetheart (and win, btw) last year, I started looking for more of Lisa Carter's contemporaries. Aloha Rose, being a favorite.

    1. I LOVE Aloha Rose too. I think this one might just be the best of her Coast Guard series...but it's hard to say for sure because they are all so fantastic. Good luck, Terrill.
