Dean Robillard stopped when he saw a woman in a giant beaver costume which lead to him giving her a ride. Though Dean will not be able to get rid of Blue and soon will discover that he might want her to hang around.
Blue Bailey has had a string of bad luck. She will find that maybe her luck is changing when she hitches a ride and lands in Tennessee. Blue will start over once again but will find that maybe she might want to settle down.
Natural Born Charmer is the seventh book to the series Chicago Stars by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. This book is the last book to the series and was another fantastic novel.
Blue’s character was a drifter thanks to her childhood. She shielded herself from those who loved her and from herself loving anyone. You wanted her to let her guard down so that she could love and receive love. Dean’s character was someone who had his own messed up background. I liked that he made something of himself and he became gentler on the ranch, not that he was mean but he also shielded himself. On the surface they looked like they never would be together but they will look beyond and find that there is more than meets the eye.
The other story is with Dean’s mother and estranged father, a groupie and rock and roll singer. I liked this other story as it brought something more to the story. The parents will learn to live with each other again and that will mend hearts but its an up hill journey for them and Dean. The added character of Riley was adorable, Dean’s half sister. I loved how she started out as the insecure girl but grew into a young woman who was becoming her true self.
Alright so I thought that Blue’s mom was good for the work she did for others but she could have been a little more thoughtful to her own daughter. I guess it didn’t matter as Blue finally made peace with it all but it would have been nice for the mother to be there for her daughter.
Well now that I am done with this series I am taking a break from Susan Elizabeth Phillips, but I know I will come back and read more of her books.
