While browsing "Southern Romance" titles, I came across this book, read the preview, and decided I had to have it without looking at much else. Which, is probably how I missed that this is a faith based romance. I don't normally read Christian romance. Not because it goes against my ideas, but I just have a thing against mixing the two.

I'm weird like that.

With that said, I'm glad I didn't know this was a faith based book in the beginning. I'm glad I bought and read "Doug and Carlie", even if it was a late night buy that kept me up until three in the morning. Maybe it's because the book is like a piece of home to me and that the faith references were nothing more than I hear in everyday conversations and it wasn't in your face all the time. I'm not exactly sure. What I am sure of is that I really liked Carlie and Doug. Although there were some melodramatic parts to this story, they were "people" I could relate to. Actually, most of the on page cast were (I'm a small town West Tn girl, too. And I've spent my share of time working at the Dollar General).

I liked how these two came together and I loved Carlie's humor. Doug was a little sweeter than my usual taste, but there was something about his blatant honesty that I loved.

The best $5.00 I've spent in a long time. Totally engrossed after the first paragraph. I had to lay it aside to laugh and then before
long I had to lay it aside to cry. I will read this one again and again. Amazon you've got a winner here. I would love to read another one of her books and have been trying to find one. What else is available by this author.

Southern writer, Lisa Smartt, has written a sweet, smart, sometimes sassy, always delightful book about finding love when and where you least expect it. Not only is "Doug and Carlie" a bargain in these rough economic times, it is a delightful way to lose yourself in a delicious southern story that is the perfect mixture of funny bone and heart. Do something kind today, gift yourself with this marvelous book.

If you will indulge me a moment longer, I also highly recommend her "Smartt View: Life, Love, and Cluttered Closets" and "Smartt View 2: Life in Progress." I read these while working on my doctorate, and they were the salvation of my sense of humor. Lisa Smartt's books make me laugh out loud, cry tears of sadness and joy, and sing praises for my southern way of life. She is deeply in touch with her southern roots and what matters in life. As for me, time spent reading a Smartt book is not only smart (couldn't resist the awkward pun), it is time well spent.

As I have read the other reviews I was reminded that this book was about being southern. I'm not a southerner, but I still identified strongly with both the main characters. There were well drawn. Their struggles with self-image, confidence, and guilt spoke to my own struggles and I enjoyed their maturing and insights they gained. One of the best things about the book was the plot was so twisty. Lisa Smartt did a good job of keeping me guessing. I really liked the practical Christianity of Doug and Carlie. It wasn't preachy; it was real. A good read!

Lisa Smartt has captured perfectly small town Southern life and raised it to the living art form that it is. Doug is most Southern girls' dream. In Carlie, she captures the internal struggles faced by most real women with honesty and hilarious humor. If you've ever felt out of step with your family and friends, not to mention your body, this is a must read! Best $4.99 I've spent, lately.

When I saw the title I thought, "This I need to see, who writes about couples for more than one book, except Lucy Maud Montgomery?" This is a terrific, down-to-earth, it-could-happen-to-you story written a bit like a diary about how two Southerners from different states meet and fall in love...eventually. When you allow God to speak to your heart, you will be surprised what happens as you make choices based on faith rather than sight. Written for teens as well as adults, I quite enjoyed Doug's quiet humor, sense of himself and chivalry and Carlie's ridiculously honest assessment of her mistakes in college the first time around, her tall, "big-boned" body, as well as a frank, short discussion they have on the topic on every single's mind. Wonderful friendships, lots of plot twists and turns, and I wanted to eat lots of good, homemade, fried food at the end!
