I am shocked. I read two of Pamela Morsi's novels recently and I can say little that is good about them. For this protagonist, an unwanted wallflower and a virgin, all she can wish for in this book is between a man who has been sleeping with another woman for a year and kept it a secret from the public, a woman whom he proposed to and forgot to mention that to the heroine while he was declaring his undying devotion to her and another man who has slept with the same woman and also kept it a secre...
I fondly remember reading Morsi's Courting Miss Hattie in the 90’s and have always considered it one of my favourite romances so I naturally thought I'd enjoy other books by the same author.... unfortunately, the small town social politics, the improbably-damned-to-spinsterhood heroine, and the tru-love-who-was-always-right-in-front-of-her hero just didn't lure me in the second time around. I suspect that if I read Courting Miss Hattie again I wouldn't enjoy it very much for the same reasons I d...
Augusta Mudd (Ms Gussie), the proud owner of Mudd Manufactured Ice, decided to get married. 31 is a fine age to start a family especially with such a refine, handsome gentleman as Amos Dewey. It doesn’t matter that her heart is no biting faster when she is with him. Who needs love when mutual respect and character compatibility is so much better. As a fine business woman, Ms. Gussie, didn’t wait but followed her decision right away and encountered her first set back: Amos who was still grieving
Pamela Morsi is one of my all-time favorite romance authors and this is in my top 3 of favorite reads from here. There's a nice mix of small town drama along with a surprisingly steamy romance. Highly recommended.
Our heroine owns an ice company and wants to marry her beau of three years the town barber, he's still grieving his long-dead wife. Heroine talks her trusted employee (our hero) into posing as her new beau to make her old beau come to scratch, and predictably they fall in love. With a sweet little subplot between the barber and the town's wicked widow. Sweet and innocent characters are what Morsi thrives at. And these characters are lovely, if occasionally a bit dull. It's a sweet love story and...
Another winner from Pamela Morsi, Here Comes the Bride tells the story of how Miss Gussie Mudd of Cottonwood, Texas manages to finally get married. A top businesswoman at 31, Gussie feels that it's now or never for her to get her long time beau, Amos Dewey to propose. Since he's reluctant, she makes a business deal with her friend and employee, Rome Akers. All Rome has to do is escort Gussie around town as if he is courting her and make Amos jealous. If it succeeds, Gussie will offer Rome a part...
This took place when Teddy Roosevelt was President(1901-1909) but no exact date offered. This story had love and laughs. There were religious overtones. Augusta was a small town ice factory owner& burly Rome served as her ice factory manager. She made a business deal w/ Rome, in order for him to pose as her faux suitor. To make perfect ( & lifeless) handsome business owner Amos jealous. Rome shaved off his handle bar moustache at her request. Rome had a 'friends w/ benefits' w /widowed OW but he...
I am giving my honest review of this book. I LOVED IT!! I need to find me a man exactly like Rome. I mistakenly a few times read his name as Romeo in the book. His character was well thought out for this book. I was totally blown away by his character. Oh Gussie, how I love her. She was excellent in this story. Amos, well what can I say. Wait I know what I can say, about darn time and good job. Pansy, she could be my friend and next door neighbor anytime. Wade, you know what to do with yourself....
Pamela Morsi always provides a great read!!With a glimpse into early twentieth century hometown life. Morsi helps us marry off Miss Gussie. Miss Gussie knows lots about business, but can that knowledge be appied to love?
It was very gentle. The characters were interesting. Perhaps too much detail.
After waiting three long years for Amos Dewey to pop the question, August Mudd knows she has to do something to convince him to marry her. Gussie's plan involves her friend and employee, Rome Akers. She asks Rome to pretend to court her in order to make Amos jealous. If Rome is willing to do this, she will then make him a partner in her business. Rome jumped at the chance to be co-owner of the most successful business in town. He didn't plan on falling in love with Gussie. Soon he'd do anything
Small-town turn-of-the-century Americana isn't really my thing. But I enjoyed Morsi's lighthearted historical romance, particularly her two main female characters, one of whom is the owner of the local ice factory, the other a notorious widow. A weirdly intriguing mix of feminism and female abnegation (the widow, despite not being as free with her charms as she is reputed to be, still wallows a lot about feeling sinful when her one long-term affair comes to public light, and makes a public apolo...
Here Comes the Bride was sweet and enjoyable. It’s set during one of my favorite time periods and includes an interesting industry. I also liked the tidbit about the Pure Food and Drug Act.I liked all the characters—especially Gussie and Pansy. Both characters were strong, confident, and fit in with the time period. I could see Gussie and Pansy as part of the suffrage movement. Pamela Morsi has a deft hand in crafting admirable characters with sweet but hot romances.
This was a very sweet read. The heroine is a spinster of 30 and the owner of company she has inherited from her late Father. The hero is employed by the spinster. The premise is heroine wanted to make a man jealous and has the hero court her to force the man into wanting her. I liked how nothing turned out like I thought it would. The heroine learned some life lesson's and the hero became more than he thought he could be. The town and the people in it were funny and charming.
There's nothing like a small town where everyone knows each other. This is set in the early 1900's. The characters are wonderful. It is written with humor and concern and hometown goodness. The wonders of this book is that it follows two people and it is not until the last few pages of the book that you find out what happens. That holds you to the book
I loved this book. I actually read it some time back, but it's one of those that still pops into my head every now and again. It was a daring twist to the typical romance, but still lingers in my mind as an exceptional romance all the same. It's an endearing reminder that no one's perfect, but that doesn't mean they're not perfect for someone.
Like other Morsi books with a strong virgin heroine wanting another man and her hero sleeping with another woman in town, that woman having her own story. But here I couldn't warm up to hero or the other characters at all. Only the heroine did I like and that made the story alright but not great.
Skvelý námet, ešte lepšie prevedenie, veľmi dobrý štýl. Miestami vážne, miestami ironické, miestami romantické - proste z každého rožka troška :-) Dokopy vysoko čitateľné.
This is the author who gave me a love for small town historicals. When I read her stores, I feel like I'm there.
I think I would have liked this book better if I had not read more recent books by Morsi. The characters in her later books are so much more interesting that I am disappointed by the older books.
One word. LOVEDITRead it for the third time (June 2016) and I fell in love with the chemistry between Gussie and Rome and the book all over again!
