Carly Kelly has just been presented with a life-changing business opportunity for tiny nursery and flower store, Plant People. But she only has four days to decide, which means she will most likely have to cancel her weekend trip away. She dials her friends to let them know, and excitedly launches into a speech about the opportunity. But when she pauses, a sexy, inquisitive stranger is on the other end, and he’s eager to hear about her store, her passions and her life. She’s dialed the wrong number— and the man on the other end, with his deep voice, his charming jokes and his excellent advice, is a surprise she never expected…
Will this wrong number turn out to be right man for Carly?
This is probably the best short story I’ve ever read! From the first letter to the last I was glued to the words and was so wrapped up in the story that nothing broke my concentration. Even though Carly and Charlie didn’t know each other, their conversation flowed smoothly and it sounded like they were perfect for each other. I loved the story line and even though the ending left me wanting more, I was more than glad I read it.
I checked the reviews, and can’t understand why there are so many people complaining about this book. It clearly states it’s a short story and there are only 30 pages (there is actually a little more than that), plus it was free. Sure, I’d have liked for the story to go on so I can see how things went with them, but since I went in knowing it was short, I figured it would leave you wondering.
The only thing that would make this short story better would be for the author to make this a full length novel. I can’t wait to check out her other books!
