Lyrical Shine

Barrett didn’t mean to lie. Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a
dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it? Lanie thinks so, especially since
her beloved Aunt Ruby would have been heartbroken to know the truth of her
niece’s sadly loveless, short-of-sparkling existence. Trouble is, according to
the will, Ruby didn’t quite buy Lanie’s tale. And to inherit the only house
Lanie ever really considered a home, she’ll have to bring her “husband” back to
Charmed, Texas for three whole months—or watch Aunt Ruby’s cozy nest go to her
weasel cousin, who will sell it to a condo developer.

Nick McKane
is out of work, out of luck, and the spitting image of the man Lanie described.
He needs money for his daughter’s art school tuition, and Lanie needs a
convenient spouse. It’s a match made . . . well, not quite in heaven, but for a
temporary arrangement, it couldn’t be better. Except the longer Lanie and Nick
spend as husband and wife, the more the connection between them begins to seem
real. Maybe this modern fairy tale really could come true . . .

3.5 stars
A Charmed Little Lie is your typical Rom Com about a fake relationship turning into something more. It was cute and funny at parts, but it is nothing new when it comes to storylines. 

Lanie wants to make her great aunt not worry so much about her, so she tells her she is married. Now, he aunt has passed and in order not to lose her aunt's house to her distinct relatives, she must prove she is happily married. Problem is... no real husband. 

Then she meets Nick. Nick is fired/quits from his job seconds before he and Janie meet. Janie offers him the job of being her fake husband and he can't say no to the money.

Cute story. Nothing we haven't read before unfortunately....
