Review: Best Laid Plans by Tamie Dearen

Best Laid Plans is the third installment of the Best Girls series by Tamie Dearen and is the story of Charlie and Josh.

After two years, Josh gave up on Charlie even though he’s still madly in love with her. But now, he needs an insta-wife so that he can adopt his niece and nephew. He asks Olivia, but she doesn’t really want to. Charlie is moving to NYC to go to law school, and she’s trying hard not to show her feelings for Josh.

We thought the debacle with Anne and Steven was bad. Emily and Spencer was a disaster. Neither has anything on the MASSIVE disconnect between Josh and Charlie. At times, I really felt like the meddling family, who all know the truth of each party’s feelings, needed to sit down and give it to them straight. But, of course, they don’t, and the miscommunication continues. and continues. and continues.

And yet, the writing is so good and the characters so adorably oblivious that I couldn’t stop reading. I just HAD to figure out how they worked it all out, and stayed laughing the whole time!

If you like the sound of this one, you can check out the rest of the series. There’s also author Tamie Dearen’s website, or you can visit and support her through Rave Reviews Book Club.
