Erin McCarthy is not capable of writing a boring sentence. Her characters are colorful and her dialogue rocks!

Heiress For Hire is the story of spoiled Chicago socialite, Amanda, and hottie farmer, Danny Tucker. Amanda's endless piles of money and unlimited credit cards cease to exist when her father decides to cut the apron strings in hopes of manipulating his daughter. Through a series of unfortunate events (and because she is practically starving to death - her only source of protein being a...more

I am a re-reader. I even have a bookshelf at GR that I call my ‘re-read-for-comfort' shelf of books that have to be read more than twice to be placed there. And I mean comfort in many ways. Sometimes a new book, after crossing one of my romance “don’ts”, will actually leave me with a bitter aftertaste and I will reach for a book with characters I can depend on to give me what I want. I am definitely a mood reader, so some people might be surprised by what is on there. Even a few paranormal read...more
I've read many books in my life. I've only ever disliked a few books. This is one of them.

The main character was annoying from the first page. I guess that means the writing was good since I felt such emotions toward her. The male main character was at least likable.

The story is about a heiress who ends up in a small town in Ohio when her rich daddy decides to finally cut off her money! A farmer in the town who just finds out he's a father to a 9 year old kid hires her as a nanny/housekeeper. I...more

Recommends it for: Contemporary romance
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very cute light read. Erin McCarthy can make you fall in love w/ anyone! Even rich snobby divas! This book has a little bit of everything in it. It's a contemporary romance with a bit of a haunting, an awesome love story, and even a endearing relationship between father and daughter! I laughed, cried and laughed some more!
Really cute read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

The other Erin McCarthy books I've read lacked a little bit of the life that this book overflowed with. I was worried at the beginning that I would hate Amanda because she seemed so shallow, but I grew to love her so much. I found her funny and really kind of brave.

Danny was just a sweet guy, and his interaction with his newfound daughter won me over immediately.

I felt like both of the characters grew up in this novel a little bit. I may have to go b...more
Why, oh why, do I keep happening upon books I WANT to like more than I ACTUALLY like? This was definitely one of them. The set up was something that I was excited to see; a 'poor little rich girl' cut off from Daddy's money in the middle of 'nowhere' takes a job looking after a farmer's new found daughter'. Seriously. It has all the makings of something I can't put down. Unfortunately, either I wasn't in the proper mood for it or I'm just not as taken in by Ms. McCarthy's writing style as I shou...more

Fluffy, sweet romance. Amanda is stuck in Cuttersville after her father cuts off all her money leaving her with a little over $50.00, hardly any food and no job. She ends up working for Danny Tucker, ex-husband of Shelby from book #1. He learns she's more than a rich girl and she learns not all men are jerks. The ending was a little to hunky dory, but otherwise a pretty good book.
I have to say that this one was a little silly. The spoiled-rich-girl-comes-to-the-farm was a cute start, but when it got steamy, it just seemed... again... silly.
First, I have succeeded in reading this series completely backwards. I stumbled into Christmas Bree and then ended up reading Charlotte's Web. I intended to read the full length book of the series but some how got it all mixed up and read them out of order. Not much I can do about that now.

Secondly, I'm not sure why this series is called Ohio's Most Haunted Town. It makes you suspect this has a lot of ghosts or paranormal activity when that is so far from the focus of the story. Granted I haven'...more
Admittedly this is NOT my genre but I was sucked in by the bright orange cover and the couple cents I paid for it at a library sale. First of all, I enjoy the cover art. The vector illustration looks great and the bright orange really pops. The storyline was kind of silly; a girl my age living in the middle of nowhere, suddenly disinherited by her father which forces her to search for a job. Subsequently (and predictably) she finds love as well as meaning in life and gets her shit together withi...more

This book was amazing. I love a good romance novel, and this one happened to hit home. It took place in Cutters ville, Ohio. So whenever i was reading it i just thought of home. This book is about a wealthy girl who needs a good taste of her own medicine. The worst thing to possibly happen to her is for her dad to cut her off. And he does. She is forced to leave her awesome life and get a job. That is when she comes to Cutters ville and meets Danny Tucker. Danny is the towns handyman, The hottes...more
Erin McCarthy is a real treat. This book was so funny and such a great mix of happy/sad all balenced together to make a story I couldnt put down.
She does a nice job of including the relationship of a father/daughter as well.
Some of the main character, Amanda, was a little over the top, but it just added to the fun.
Highly recommended.
Okay as someone who started reading Erin's work from Bad Boys Online, then following with the Fast Track series this book was mediocre compared to her other series. Funny enough this was the book that caught my attention while shelf surfing at the library. I was lucky enough to rethink picking up so many books at once and put this back. Then I read the entire Fast Track series in two weeks. Deciding to come back to the book that intrigued me I started Heiress for Hire.

***Few Details***

I’m a big fan of Erin McCarthy’s Fast Track series and consider her an automatic buy in the bookstore. So when I saw HEIRESS FOR HIRE and SEEING IS BELIEVING I snatched them up despite being book 2 and 3.

Although I was sad to miss out on Boston and Shelby, I didn’t feel like the story was lacking by skipping book 1.

Heiress Amanda Delmar has been cut off by her emotionally distant father who’s tired of her being exactly who he trained her to be, a spoiled shopaholic wh...more

Second in the Cuttersville romance series, a small farming community in Ohio. The couple focus is on Amanda Delmar and Danny Tucker.

My Take
Be careful what you wish for! It's funny, but not as funny as McCarthy usually is and primarily because Amanda's situation is so sad. She's never felt love in all of her pampered life. But McCarthy does infuse it with lots of surface fun with everyone confused as to reality. It's all stereotype and expectation which gets turned on its head. It is cute how muc...more
2 1/2 stars

I probably wouldn't have picked this one up on my own, but it was left up for grabs at our work castoff table so I figured I'd give it a shot. The plot line was farfetched in a lot of ways, but it was funny and light and just what I needed right now.

A rich heiress runs off to a middle of no where town named Cuttersville trying to escape her problems and boredom. Now if I'm bored regardless of being rich or not Cuttersville, Ohio is not the first place I would think of to go, but okay...more

Amanda Delmar is a spoiled little princess, and when she followed her ex-boyfriend to Cuttersville, Ohio, where he found his current wife, she thought it would be fun to stay for a bit and explore small town life. When she needs more money for a nice manicure, she calls daddy and asks him for some money. After all, that is what he does. But to her surprise, he tells her there will be no more money, at all. She will have to start living on her own. This sure is a nasty surprise, as he never wante...more

When I picked up HEIRESS FOR HIRE I thought it would be just another run-of-the mill novel to add to the rest of my collection. It was so much more than that. HEIRESS FOR HIRE is chick-lit with heart.

When Amanda Delmar decides to take what was supposed to be a quick, for kicks trip to Cuttersville, OH she never dreamed she would end up staying the entire summer. But what choice does she have? She calls on dear ol' Dad to bail her out after she's ran out of cash and maxed out her credit cards, b...more
A great book and a fun read. I bit fluffy but sometimes you need that. I enjoyed the character of Amanda and thought that she was well portrayed and knew right off the bat she was not going to be the bratty heiress everyone pegged her as. Which is maybe why I was not head over heels for this book. It may have been more rewarding if her transformation was a bit more dramatic, but she was so good to start with there really was no abrupt change in her demeanour. Also, Danny was a tiny bit two dimen...more

Take an heiress who knows how to do nothing but be a socialite, a farmer who knows how to do very little other than that, a shy little girl who has lost her mother and been left on the doorstep of a father who didn't know she existed, stir in a big dose of McCarthy's wit and you'll find yourself in a story that will propel you through to the happy ending.
Like others I expected this book to be chick-lit which I'm not fond of but someone recommended it to me so I tried it. I'm glad I did because it is not chick-lit it is a romance pure and simple. So if you're expecting chick-lit you probably won't like it.

I loved the character of Amanda. I loved how she was looking for something better in her life and how she learned and grew. I loved how Danny saw himself as boring but in reality he was a steady, dependable man, the type of man who appeals to m...more
I loved it. It was funny, yet very sentimental. and I loved how the author took time to fully make up understand what she was going through. I loved her courage and her sense of style, but mostly her big heart towards his daughter. i also fell in love with him the moment he took in his daughter.
What a Charming book!
Liked it very much.
I had desperate thoughts of wishes in how the story would end.
Lets just say it was a quick read, hilarious,sweet and interesting.
This was such an adorable story. I did not read the first in the series and can see clearly that there are some things that I was just expected to know, but I pick up on it quickly. A fast quirky read about an spoil rich girl l, Amanda, eft to learn a life lesson in the middle of nowhere. With no money, she luckily ends up babysitting for a young handsome farmer, Danny Tucker, who has recently dicovered that he has an 8yr old daughter. The Little girl's mother had passed away and it's up to Dann...more
Contemporary romance with protected sex.

Love this one! Nice guy Danny & spoiled rich girl Amanda hook up.
Danny finds out he's a father. Long ago, when he & Shelby broke up for a summer, he had a one night stand. The girl never told him she had a baby, but now she's dead. Piper comes to him neglected & emotionally abused by her step father, who no longer wants her. She can also see ghosts when no one else can.
Brady is also in this one. Piper & Brady get their story 12 years la...more
A rich girl from the city on vacation in the country gets cut off from her father���s money. She gets a job as nanny and housekeeper for a local farmer and falls in love.

What was supposed to be a light, mindless read turned into a wonderfully engaging story. Characters, especially our heroine Amanda, are well-conceived and entertaining. It���s a sweet and funny story, with as much emphasis on Amanda���s self-discovery as the developing relationship between her and farmer Danny. If this book is a...more

I've done to the conclusion that I'm an easy reader to please. As long as there is a growing romance, some conflict, steamy scenes and of course a happy ending than I am all good.

This is a story of a lost soul heiress who is cuf off by her father, daddy warbucks. Amanda finds live sigh Danny, a farmer who can only provide her with his live and family. However, Danny doesn't know if he is good enough to be what Amsnda is accustomed to. While, Amanda isn't sure she can get out of her spoiled says...more
Very cute book. Loved Piper, the little girl, and Baby, the toy poodle.
