Review: Finding Charity - Jody Pardo


Mark Lyon was a beast in the boardroom. Building websites and branding corporations for success was his specialty, and he was good at it. Mark worked hard to earn his place at the top of his field. He let nothing stand in his way, not even Christmas. 
Charity Clarke captured Mark's attention with her dirty mouth at first meeting, but her giving spirit stole his heart without notice. When she goes missing, will finding Charity be the gift with enough love and hope to save them both?


A sweet and sexy read, Finding Charity show us that miracles can happen during the holidays if only the person is shown the way. Mark Lyons is a self centered, selfish business man whose only interest is the bottom line. During his company Christmas party he meets a mysterious woman who sets his world on fire and makes him look at the world with different eyes. What begins as a way to espedite her Christmas duties so he could have her to himself turns into so much more when he gets a real look at the real homeless and impoverishment issue happening right beneath his own nose. Although I'd love to lay all the responsibility of his change at Charity's door, the fact of the matter is that we do get a glimpse of Mark's softer side in his interaction and feelings for his secretary, Jane. Charity may have been the catalyst, but I believe Mark had redeeming qualities already that just needed to be tapped in to.

I greatly enjoyed reading Finding Charity. The characters were engaging and the story well written. I only wish it were longer. It seemed a bit rush towards the end and could do with slowing things down just a bit and letting the reader have time to care about Charity's situation.
