The Charm Offensive by Cari Lynn Webb - Book Review & Giveaway

Book review
By Suze

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads B&N Harlequin Kobo

Private investigator Brad has to catch a man who has stolen a lot of money and that brings him in Sophie's pet shop, The Pampered Pooch. Brad expects Sophie will be just like her thieving father, but instead he finds a beautiful woman, both inside and out. Every abandoned pet is welcome in her store, Sophie is raising her sister's daughter Ella and she's always there for her friends and even for her family, even though they have never done anything nice for her. Sophie instantly finds a way into Brad's heart, but can he trust his feelings? Is she too good to be true or is she the woman for Brad? What is he supposed to do, tell her the truth? She might leave him when she knows why he had to become part of her life. Will Sophie give him a chance or will Brad risk losing the woman who makes him feel like he belongs?

The Charm Offensive is a wonderful heartwarming story. Sophie and Brad don't trust easily because of their upbringing. In Brad's family politics and achievements matter a lot and this has made him cynical. Sophie has never had a stable home and she's always been the responsible one, the person who makes sure others are all right while nobody is looking after her. Ella is her world and raising her niece is something she does with love. Ella is such an endearing cheerful girl and reading about her made me smile. She and Sophie have a special connection and I loved how Sophie fights for her niece's happiness. Brad is great with Ella and shares a sweet and caring nature with Sophie. They're perfect for each other and are a fantastic match. I couldn't wait to find out if these amazing people would find their happily ever after and read the book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down.

Cari Lynn Webb has written a fantastic romantic story with precious main characters. I instantly fell in love with The Charm Offensive. It's indeed incredibly charming. It's also sweet, entertaining and delightful. I loved that there's so much eye for detail, even the large number of pets all have their own distinct personalities. Cari Lynn Webb has paid attention to everything and her story has warmth and cosiness in abundance. The Charm Offensive is a terrific feelgood story and I highly recommend this gorgeous loving book.


If you enjoy reading about heartwarming characters, beautiful people and romantic love you should definitely read The Charm Offensive.
