A Spinster Saved by Love

Spinster’s Song

1984

We haven’t had a romance or a “friday fiction” post in a while. Here is your fix for the week. This story is about a doctor named Mary, evidently destined for spinsterhood. Of course there is a the local playboy Rafe and he starts putting the moves on our poor, love starved doctor. Of course he gets the girl and it is more than a casual affair. But I bet you knew that.

NLW 2017-Some Love in the Stacks: Deputy’s Perfect Match

The Deputy’s Perfect Match

2017

I have been on a romance binge for the last year or so. Lately, I prefer the contemporary/HEA kind, provided I don’t hate the protagonist or think he/she is particularly stupid. I am also partial to librarians as main characters. So in honor of National Library Week, I am going to share a librarian romance off my TBR pile. As this one was just released, I am only about 25% in. So far, I am annoyed at our librarian who gets a bit  snippy about our romantic lead’s inquiry about getting a library card. (It sounded a bit judgmental.) She does lighten up as the story progresses.  I do love the set up of the deputy “investigating” our intrepid librarian by attending a Jane Austen book club. So far, the public library setting is pretty perfect, but hey, it’s a romance and fiction, so all the patrons are very well behaved and no one is too weird….yet. I am sure my romance patrons that like a more gentle tone in their fiction will probably love it.

Happy National Library Week,

Mary
