The Carny By Brooke Moss


*Release Date July 7*


At a town fair on the coast of Oregon, handsome Native American carny, Vincent Youngblood, bestows an unforgettable kiss on shy, awkward teenager, Charlotte Davenport. Then he disappears without another word, leaving her baffled and enamored. Ten years later, Charlotte is still living in the small fishing town of Astoria, while being trained to--reluctantly--take over for her philandering hotelier father when he retires. After all, who else will do it? Her two perfect sisters are busy being married to their flawless husbands and having cookie cutter children, while Charlotte remains single, childless, and every bit as mousy as she was a decade ago. As Charlotte struggles to climb out from underneath her judgmental parents thumb, the carnival rolls back into town, and Charlotte finds herself face to face with Vin again. He's back to run his father's carnival, walking away from a promising career in medicine he started in Chicago.

Will her biased and judgmental family accept her relationship with a man who is not only a Native American, but works as a carny for a living? And what unsavory secrets bind the well-educated and seemingly superlative Vin to that ramshackle carnival?

After all, you can’t judge a carny by its cover.

My Review
Charlotte Davenport will never forget her first kiss, from a carny. Vincent Youngblood has been in her heart for the past ten years. After she was left standing at the altar and being cheated on she moved back home.  Her mother needs someone around to take care of. And that lands on Charlotte, her two sisters are married. Charlotte goes to the same carnival that she meet Vin ten years ago. When she is face to face with the man that stole her heart. He looks just as good as he did back then, maybe even better now. When he asks her out and she says yes she knows that her parents won’t approve with him being Native American. But she doesn’t care, she is tired of doing what her family wants her to do. She quickly falls in love with Vin. When he tells her is dark secrets she only hopes she will become his world.

This is another amazing book from Brooke Moss. It seems that she knows how to pull you in and doesn’t let go until the very end. This story starts with Charlotte and her girlfriends Regina and Kasey at the carnival. Regina is bugging Charlotte about her love life. She has never had a boyfriend and Regina knows this so Kasey make one up for her. When Regina is asking who that is when we meet Vin. I really enjoy the emotion shown in Charlotte and Vin. I feel you watch Charlotte grew up in this book. She has self-esteem issues and Vin helps her with that. Brooke Moss enjoys comedy in her books so you will laugh out loud when you are reading.
