Carlie is a likable character. She is funny and accepting of her flaws like that she is very tall for a woman and 37 pounds over the ideal weight for her height. She is old to be single at 32 and has worked at the Dollar General for ten years just finishing her degree now. Doug is a good match for her because he hasn't dated much either. At 28 that is unusual but he sure isn't your usual 28 year old male. Relatives are always trying to set him up on dates and he politely goes on them but hasn't found anyone worth seeing more than once until Carlie. I really liked that the characters weren't perfect.
I liked the writing style in Doug and Carlie. It flowed well and was interesting to get both Doug and Carlie's POV. It was romantic but funny and sometimes sad. Loved it. I thought it was a bit far fetched that they were both virgins though. That stuck out as being really odd. Especially for Doug waiting for ‘the one’.

I'm weird like that.
With that said, I'm glad I didn't know this was a faith based book in the beginning. I'm glad I bought and read "Doug and Carlie", even if it was a late night buy that kept me up until three in the morning. Maybe it's because the book is like a piece of home to me and that the faith references were nothing more than I hear in everyday conversations and it wasn't in your face all the time. I'm not exactly sure. What I am sure of is that I really liked Carlie and Doug. Although there were some melodramatic parts to this story, they were "people" I could relate to. Actually, most of the on page cast were (I'm a small town West Tn girl, too. And I've spent my share of time working at the Dollar General).
I liked how these two came together and I loved Carlie's humor. Doug was a little sweeter than my usual taste, but there was something about his blatant honesty that I loved.
If you will indulge me a moment longer, I also highly recommend her "Smartt View: Life, Love, and Cluttered Closets" and "Smartt View 2: Life in Progress." I read these while working on my doctorate, and they were the salvation of my sense of humor. Lisa Smartt's books make me laugh out loud, cry tears of sadness and joy, and sing praises for my southern way of life. She is deeply in touch with her southern roots and what matters in life. As for me, time spent reading a Smartt book is not only smart (couldn't resist the awkward pun), it is time well spent.
long I had to lay it aside to cry. I will read this one again and again. Amazon you've got a winner here. I would love to read another one of her books and have been trying to find one. What else is available by this author.
