Charlene (Charlee) Montague’s dream after graduation had been to report breaking news from a war zone. She has high ambitions to live up to the successful careers her parents and brothers have achieved. Instead, she has to make do with her newbie reporter job at What’cha! doing grunt work for her unyielding boss, Vanessa Lloyd. But, Charlee is book-smart knowing seven languages; she’s determined; and she’s downright hard-headed. Her best friend and the boss’s daughter, Poppy, pulls her unwillingly to attend What’cha!’s prestigious book award ceremony. There she meets author, Rafael Fonseca-Ffinch. She doesn’t recognize him and becomes exceedingly rude. He knows the owner of What’cha!, Sam Walker. But instead of Sam firing her for her behavior, Mr. Fonseca-Ffinch had requested that Charlee be assigned to his current research project going under cover to spy on supermodel, Anastasia Markova. Charlee knows there’s more – much more – to this story and to Mr. Fonseca-Ffinch than meets the eye.

Charlee was a fun character to watch and the story line was amusing. It did make me a bit sad for her that her whole family, being high achievers, seemed to close her out and make her feel small. They had gotten used to not expecting much from Charlee. I’m not sure which is worse – to have your family feel as though you’re as good as you’re going to get, or to begin to feel that they may be right. This was a light, easy read. The bantering between Charlee and Ffinch was witty and made up much of the story. They play act their engagement so she can attend bride boot camp with Anastasia in Thornham in the English county of Norfolk. This is a chick-lit and as is the case with most of that genre, you can predict the romance. However, it is much more difficult to guess the mystery and danger that faces Charlee and cheer on Ffinch as he tries to protect her. I rated Boot Camp Bride at 3.5 out of 5.
