One minute a casino owner from Vegas, Rhett Parks, was relaxing on a bench in a small English town. To his dismay, a young woman interrupted his sanctuary. A minute later, his body was out cold on the ground and he was taking up residence inside the intruder, schoolteacher Carrie Temple — and without her permission.

Her first words, "Get out," didn't solve anything because he had no idea of how he "got in." During the next few weeks they fought each other, taught each other, and began to love each other, not an easy accomplishment considering the situation, but doable, as Rhett proved to sweet, naïve Carrie.

They became involved with strange Dr. Andrews, who assured them he had the answers to solve their problem, but Rhett’s brother Ashley, to whom they turned for help, was absolutely certain that the man they were putting their faith in was a charlatan and a quack.

Sometimes life tosses the most interesting experiences into our path. This is the case with the main characters in "He's Her" -- though their experience might be a tad more "interesting" than the types we live through! Who would think that a simple seat in a cemetery and a single rose could toss two people's lives into a tailspin, and yet bring a lifetime of love to them both?

"He's Her" is a fun read, with a few twists and turns that make the characters endearing and even the gruff Rhett worms his way into the reader's heart. I was invested in these characters and couldn't wait to see the end! I look forward to reading the other stories in the Vicarage Bench series -- do yourself a favor and pick up this fun, quick read.
