Fuel your love of romance in this mesmerizing sequel to Marcia Gruver's Diamond Duo. In this second book of the Texas Fortunes series, Charity Bloom is left stranded at the altar after her best friend takes off with her fiance. How will she ever show her face in town again? After Buddy Pierce discovers oil on the Bloom property, he realizes the real treasure may be above ground-in the form of Charity Bloom. Can he strike it rich in Charity? When her ex-fiance decides he wants her back, whom will Charity choose the handsome roughneck or the deceitful rogue?
This novel revolves around Charity Bloom, Buddy Pierce, and Charity''s extended family. Buddy jumps off the page from the moment he''s introduced and is a wonderful match for charity. Charity''s mother, Bertha, and her best friend, Magda, bring to mind favorite aunts. Sit back, get comfortable and enjoy a trip to 1905 Texas.
Chasing Charity is a story of love as "Charity-from-the Bible" will touch your heart and stir your thoughts. It’s a story of sacrifice and forgiveness and we’re reminded that none of us deserves forgiveness. Charity and Buddy will remind you that God will if you ask.
Marcia Gruver’s second story has taken the next step in the series. The characters have depth and Ms Gruver keeps them human. There is just enough detail to the story that allows this book to stand alone. I recommend reading Diamond Duo (the first book in the series) first to give you some background. Will Emmy be our next heroine to come into a "Texas Fortune"?
