    A great read

    I enjoyed all of 'The Wedding Ring' books and this one was very special because 'Charli' Carlotta Rossi never thought she would be lucky enough to snag a man let alone a very handsome and successful one but she does! And that's where the trouble starts! This book was like a good movie, it makes you laugh it makes you cry and shout 'You go girl!' Charli comes out of her shell and becomes a stronger woman for all the trials she is put threw and her strength and perseverance threw what in the beginning seemed like a doomed marriage were another reason I loved this book too. Another book that was very much like this one but slightly different in it's own way is 'The Trouble With Mary' by Millie Criswell.

    Enjoyable contemporary romance

    When the four close friends were in high school, they vowed to be married by thirty or suffer the pains of matchmaking from the other three. Of the foursome, Charli Rossi looks like she will never find a man as the high school instrumental music teacher knows she is shy and believes she is drab. <P> Charli goes out on a blind date with Wall St. hunk Grant Sterling that the ring trio approves as her perfect mate. It is obvious that they swim in two different ponds as the wealthy attorney shows the Brooklyn native another side of the city. Grant concludes that Charli would make the perfect wife for him. To make partnership, he needs a trophy spouse, but his preference in this marriage of convenience is a mousy shy-like Charli. As they become acquainted with one another, Charli takes Grant by storm and soon he loves her as much as she loves him, but he must convince her that he now wants one to one commitment. <P>I DO, BUT HERE¿S THE CATCH, the second novel in Pamela Burford¿s ¿wedding Ring¿ quartet, is a warm humorous urban romance. Charli is a wonderful character whose transformation from ugly duckling to lovely swan can be categorized as impossible or caused by the love of a good man. The return of Charli¿s ring mates (see LOVE¿S FUNNY THAT WAY) augments the prime story line with amusing gossip and advice. Fans will enjoy the first two tales and want to read Sunny and Amanda¿s stories coming in the next couple of months. <P>Harriet Klausner
