Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery

(image from goodreads.com)

 Welcome to Fool's Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There's lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there's just one tiny problem in Fool's Gold: the men don't seem to stick around. Maybe it's the lure of big-city life, or maybe it's plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.
Charity's nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she's not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he's perfect just the way he is. But maybe that's just what he needs someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he's just chasing perfect.

 This book is a very quick read. I give it 3 stars. :) I was actually kind of disappointed, I've heard great things about this series, and yes, I will finish it. (it will just take me a while) but it was
a cute story, but I found the writing to be very dragging and the time when they identify the culprit was very anti-climactic. 

I'm moving onto the next book of the series which is Almost Perfect I'm hoping for a better experience with that book. *crossing my fingers*


My favorite scene was when Josh stopped mid race just to speak to Charity. :) So sweet, yeah? :)
