Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi

Love OverdueLove Overdue by Pamela Morsi

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

LOVE OVERDUE, sometimes a good contemporary romance is all a body needs. I enjoyed this because it was sweet. End of. Never mind how they’ve all carved out little roles for themselves; playing the same perfectly. It’s so very skit, I suppose. How they all have these little roles and perform each role just so. Thus, never mind that the mother is nosy and knows what’s best… in that sweet old lady endearing way. Never mind that the main lady here is Librarian... eating, breathing, dreaming books, dressing the part of librarian perfectly, too. Never mind that the dude is perfectly-perfect in everything, too. Why?

It’s the back story they all had that made them each of them something more. Beyond her starchy formality, beyond the mother’s quiet (but endearing!) manipulation, and beyond the guy’s being perfectly-perfect, they’ve all got history. They’ve all got some sort of heartbreak. And they all come together perfectly. So, in this, we have the good son and then the funnier mother. In this, we have small town, small town folk and the funnies that happen because everyone knows everyone else’s business.  But mainly, in this, we have the always hilarious scenario of someone’s past coming back to bite her in the ass.
