Publishers Weekly calls national bestselling author Pamela Morsi "the Garrison Keillor of romance." Her trademark wit and warmth enliven tightly written tales with down-home charm. Her novels, including Sealed with a Kiss, No Ordinary Princess, The Love Charm, and Courting Miss Hattie, have garnered rave reviews from critics and numerous awards including two RITA Awards, a Waldenbooks Sales Award, Bookstores that Care Favorite Romance Awards and the Maggie Prize for Historical Fiction, and Reviewer's Choice from Romantic Times maga-zine. She lives in Texas with her family.From Publishers Weekly:
Morsi's ( Garters ) novel has a strong sense of time and place. Set in Plattsville, Okla., when Woodrow Wilson was president, this novel recalls rural America in the days of carousels, country dances and the simple pleasures of church and home. The story begins when spunky but plain Tulsa May Bruder, the reverend's daughter, is publicly jilted by Dr. Odie Foote at their engagement party. Her best friend, Luther Briggs, the most attractive bachelor in town, vows to help her save face by a make-believe courtship. The plot develops with predictable self-discovery and the evolution from friendship to sexual passion. More unexpected is the relationship between Luther's younger brother Arthel and the beauty queen, Maybelle Penny. Luther and Arthel's mother was Native American, and the racial taunts of Maybelle (including names such as "Chief Buffalo Brain") serve as the aggressive catalyst of their relationship. The third coupling pairs Emma Dix, the town's fallen woman, and Doc Odie Foote. Emma Dix ran away with a married man but is given a chance to regain her reputation when she returns to nurse her dying father.
