Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi

Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi

Dorothy Jarrow is wedded to her profession and the prim and proper stereotype it implies.  As you may have guessed from the title, D.J. is a librarian.  She takes a job in rural Verdant, Kansas as the new director and is ready to put her heart and soul into running her library.  Unfortunately the staff members are not all thrilled about her arrival.  Still, she’s determined to make this work out and make Verdant her home.  Then she meets the Library Board President’s son.  Why oh why does the guy she had a fling with years ago at spring break have to make her new hometown his hometown?  It seems he doesn’t remember her and she’s going to try very hard to keep it that way.

This is a romance novel so I don’t have to tell you that all’s well that ends well.  I was impressed with the multiple interwoven plot lines and the lightheartedness and seriousness that occur in the novel.  The few times I thought the author messed up (no one offers a person a job after looking at a two year old resume posted online without scheduling an interview – especially for a library director!) there was a very good reason for what happened.  The characters are wonderfully quirky and Verdant, even being the hotbed of gossip that it is, grows on the reader as it grows on D.J.  If you want a fun contemporary romance with southern small town charm this is an author to keep an eye on.
