Chasing Charity is the second book in the Texas Fortunes series. Diamond Duo’s (book 1) lead characters were Bertha and Magda. Chasing Charity continues the story through the lives of their daughters, Charity and Emmy.
On their wedding day, Daniel leaves Charity standing at the altar. He and her best friend, Emmy, runs off together. Charity is heartbroken. Handsome Buddy Pierce is in town looking for black gold, oil. Buddy suspects there is oil deep under their property. Charity and her mother have to move out of their home while the oilmen drill. Daniel returns to town begging forgiveness and ready to pick up with they left off. Suddenly, Charity has two men vying for her affections.
Chasing Charity is a delightful read. This is one of those books you don’t want to lay down. Marcia Gruver is a skillful author. She manages to demonstrate Christian values without being preachy. Gruver takes Christian Romance to the next step. She is not satisfied with typical style; she is original! I love the way she shares different perspectives. Marcia Gruver is at the top of my Christian author list.
