Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi
Meet Dorothy Jarrow: devotedly unsexy librarian
Buttoned-up book lover DJ is all sensible shoes, drab skirts and studious glasses. After an ill-advised spring-break-fueled fling left her mortified, she's committed to her prim and proper look. When she's hired by a rural library in middle-of-nowhere Kansas, she finally has the lifestyle to matchand she can't wait to get her admin on.
But it's clear from day one that the small-town library is more interested in circulating rumors than books. DJ has to organize her unloved library, win over oddball employees and avoid her flamboyant landlady's attempts to set her up with the town pharmacist. Especially that last partbecause it turns out handsome Scott Sanderson is her old vacation fling! She is not sure whether to be relieved or offended when he doesn't seem to recognize her. But with every meeting, DJ finds herself secretly wondering what it would be like to take off her glasses, unpin her bun and reveal the inner vixen she's been hiding from everyoneincluding herself.
My Review: Love Overdue
I used to think working in a library would be a perfect job for me. But I would rather read the books than shelve them. I like the characters especially D.J. She accepts a job and moves to a small town in Kansas.
DJ has no family but her little dog Dewey. She is excited to be in charge of her own library.
She finds out that her apartment that comes with the job is actually the upstairs of Vivian who hired her. She is on the board of the library.
Scott is divorced pharmacist. He met D.J. years ago and does not recongize her as Sparkle who he
had a one night stand on spring break. All he knows is that D.J. does not like him off the bat.
Vivian has actually hired D.J. and brought her to town to fix up her son. She wants to see him settled before she can go on her plans.
I like the town and all the different folks in it. It really makes the story to get to know so many of the characters. I would like to know more of James story.
I liked the pace of the book. Once I started I did not stop till it was finished.
There is a few love scenes in the book that I skipped over.
The subject of suicide and the different perspectives was interesting.
I was given this ebook to read and in return asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
