Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

Love Overdue - Pamela Morsi Reviewed at http://www.mandikayereads.com/love-overdue-by-pamela-morsi-review/ on 7/26/13Of course I had to read this one – it’s about a librarian!There were two things I didn’t love about this book – how DJ’s character personified the stereotype of the boring, drab, librarian and how the ending wrapped up entirely too quickly. Another scene was necessary before the cut to the prologue.Other than that, it was a light and fun read. DJ was great at what she did as the new head librarian at the small town librarian, and she found ways to rise above small town gossip and fit into the town.Scott was a good man who loved his family and had some baggage from the past but he was the kind of man any woman should be happy to end up with.But as should happen in any good romance, there was miscommunication and assumption that caused hijinx. It was somewhat frustrating to read because I just wanted the two of them to get their HEA and I could see why it wasn’t happening, but I couldn’t just reach into the book and talk some sense into DJ or Scott. Of course, what that meant for the two of them is that they had ample opportunity to learn to trust each other and build up a lot of sexual chemistry until the end of the book. That part was fun too.And on top of the romance, the supporting characters were just awesome. Scott’s mom, Viv, played a huge role – and her story was heartbreaking but needed to be told. Her bond with DJ’s dog Dew (or Melvil Dewey, Jr.) was too cute for words. Amos and Jeannie’s secondary romance was fun to see play out. Suzy and James at the library were fun to get to know as well.Overall, it was exactly what I wanted a Harlequin romance to be.
