Following her father's heart attack, Candie Montgomery takes leave from her advertising job in Chicago and returns to Pinewood, Ky., to help her twin sister, Sarah, run the family's used-car business. The townsfolk blame Candie for the recent breakup of her sister's engagement to longtime love, Nick, so Sarah suggests Candie find a boyfriend to take the heat off; the gorgeous and amiable Tommy Tucker, the new rec director at a local park, offers before she can even ask. The two soon discover an ease with one another along with a great attraction. Candie's idea to revamp the business brings Nick back into their lives, and a clever plan to reunite him with Sarah ensures. There's a fair amount of corn to this romance, but there's also an infectious quality to the writing, and some great humor. (Jan.)

Her first few minutes in town are confusing, why is no one waving back at her? She is shocked to find out that the is the other woman in her twin sisters failed engagement. More shocking is Candie has been out of town for two years. So what is up she wonders. _____ Candie decides she needs a boyfriend ASAP. Tommy Tucker offers to help out.

But one pretend kiss changes all of that for her. _____ Added to this hometown mix is Candie and her Twin Sarah trying to revive the family business by having Sarah's ex fiance tricking out some trucks. _____ Trick My Truck is an endearing light hearted romance. The characters are hot and spicy and feel like long lost friends. Candie's romance with Tommy will steam up your cold winter nights. The secondary romance of Sarah and Nick is explosive as well as endearing. ____ I laughed out loud so many times during this book. It was a joy to read from the first page. Looking forward to the next book by this author.

When Candie Montgomery returns home to Kentucky in an attempt to save her family's floundering used car business during her father's medical crisis, she is met by cold shoulders everywhere she goes in her small hometown. Turns out that everyone blames her for the earlier broken engagement of her twin sister, Sarah. Although she can't comprehend just how this misunderstanding came to be, she decides that she needs a 'pretend' boyfriend to fool the townspeople and take the chill off the luscious Tommy Tucker is quick to volunteer for the job. Candie is thrilled to have his help, but when his pretend kisses get progressively more intense, she begins to wonder who is actually being fooled. Tommy makes her feel beautiful and sexy, not the norm for Candie who has always felt that Sarah was the more beautiful twin.******* Candie and Tommy are incredibly fun characters. The sisterly relationship of Candie and Sarah is especially sweet and realistically written, with each having her own insecurities and vulnerabilities. Secondary characters are a charming addition and Sarah's romance is a nice bonus. LuAnn McLane has proven that she is capable of first person writing, and this book is no exception. Candie's thoughts and actions are experienced by readers first-hand and make this story come to life and shine.

Candie Montgomery enjoyed her life in Chicago, but after two years there, she has come home to Pinewood, Kentucky to help save her family owned business, Dapper Dan Used Car Emporium. However, instead of a warm welcoming, she is treated like a pariah. People she has known since she was a child spurn her greetings 876 accusers including family members. Candie is stunned to learn that everyone, even her twin sister blames her for her sibling¿s broken heart although she cannot understand how she can be held culpable for hot shot auto repair shop owner Nick ending it with Sarah.------------- She learns that everyone believes she is the other woman, who left town because her feelings for Nick drove her to Chicago. Candie informs her sister that when Sarah started to date her best friend Nick, she knew her twin and her buddy were meant for one another. Fearing for her family¿s business as sales has plummeted, she decides she must find a way to get Sarah¿s engagement unbroken, but not sure how as she is the athletic book worm not the glamour queen like her sibling is. Gorgeous Tommy Tucker offers her a perfect solution as he says he will pretend to be her boyfriend so that no one can accept her as Nick¿s woman. Reluctantly she agrees. As she falls in love, she waits for Tommy to mess up her heart when he says no more pretending.----------- TRICK MY TRUCK BUT DON¿T MESS WITH MY HEART is an amusing lighthearted small town romance in which the relationship between the twins is the star attraction over the two romances. The story line is fast-paced as the siblings land in one mess after another while Tommy tries to convince Candie that he is sweet on her and Sarah shows genius for the first time with her ¿Tricked out truck¿ ploy to re-nab Nick. Fans will enjoy the Montgomery sisters¿ antics in their old Kentucky home.----------- Harriet Klausner

The story line is entertaining but the dialogue feels forced and un-natural.
