Wanted: husband surprised me. I was expecting a silly romance with not much substance, as is often the case in "cheaper" books, but I thought the caracters were well defined and the story was really cute.
However, I kept getting distracted by the typos and errors. Maybe some of the typos occured as part of the conversion to Kindle format (like the quasi-constant use of be instead of he), in which case somebody should have reread it before release. Some other errors were homophones that should have been verified (the use of than instead of them, of bear for a beer, to name a few).
Overall, I still think that this was a good story, but I don't know if I would elect to spend money (even as little as 2.99) on another book by this author, as she does not seem to realise that the quality of language in a book affects our perception of the story.
If there was a "reedited" version, as I have seen in other ebooks, I would encourage others to try this smart, cute love story.

I really liked the premise behind this book. Story is about Carrie, who is a cop in LA, but decides to take a job in the very small town of Moss Beach as chief of police. Story takes place where Lonely Millionaire, another of Carol Grace's books takes place, so we get to see previous characters (Mandy, Adam and Mandy's sister Laurie). Carrie's reasons for taking the job were to get away from the danger of LA, but mostly, to be away from Matt, her current partner, the man she was in love with. Like many have noted, the book has many editing issues, typos, use of incorrect words, etc. If you can overlook this, then this is a good story to read. I have read a few books by this author and have become used to the editing problems so they don't bother me as much. I really like her story plots, her characters are well developed and stories are usually sweet and cute so I keep coming back! But if editing is a pet peeve, I suggest you try other books.

Anyway, Carrie goes to this town, but she lets everyone believe that she is engaged, only problem was she dneed to find a fiance. In her quest for a fiance, Matt volunteers to help her. Carrie has mixed feelings, she wants the job badly, but being around Matt for two weeks would make forgetting him and saying goodbye even harder. They arrive at the small town and Carrie is loving it. She is having a good time, and Matt is by her side playing the perfect fiance. Matt was hoping that Carrie would get bored and would go back with him, he even tried to sabotage her job. Soon they find themselves too deep into their pretend engagement and things get complicated.

Story was cute, characters were great and story was sweet. I loved revisiting some of the old characters from her previous books. If you are looking for something fun and light, this is a good choice, but if editing is a problem, then I suggest something else.

I was very disappointed in the ending. It lacked in every way...it was rushed, there was no real romance and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I have read 4 - 5 other books from this author and some I loved and some I liked but all were so much better than this. I kept waiting for the hero to actually stand up and be a hero and go after what he wanted, but that never happened. After investing my time in the book I was left utterly disenchanted and disappointed. The reason it got two stars instead of one? Well, one - I got the book for free, two - it did have potential and probably would have forgiven everything (yes even the bad editing) if the hero had that man up moment and went after what he wanted at anytime, but third - most of all because I liked the first book The lonely millionaire and enjoyed seeing the characters again. (forgive me for my own editing but typing on my iPad gets annoying I need a keyboard ;)

Perhaps the author will re-release this book with less errors, that would make this a solid 3.5 star book. I will not overlook spelling/grammar errors, regardless of the writing. It was a good story but the ending was way too rushed. You have days that are outlined by hour and then all problems are overcome due to a tragic incident at end of book. Non descriptive and a huge let down.

Carol Grace is my new favorite author, a refreshing change of pace for me from tortured characters in strongly sensual paranormal romance novels. She is able to depict romantic scenes with as much passion as any other spicier romance that I've read. Beautifully drawn characters and landscape and I love that the reader is treated to the depth of feeling from both the heroine and hero... The only flaw to me in this book (besides the editing but that doesn't bother me as much as it does others - I really see this as a Kindle issue) was somewhat of a rushed ending. A crisis befalls the hero towards the end of the story and it just suddenly overcomes all of the conflicted feelings that had existed throughout. It seemed a little convenient that this brought them together unlike "The Millionare's Nanny" that fully developed how the characters disconnected and then reconnected emotionally. I loved this book but out of the 3 Carol Grace novels I've read so far ("The Prince's Nanny"), this is my second favorite. Looking forward to reading more from this author!
