Books by Pamela Morsi

A-
Wild Oats

Set in Oklahoma Territory in 1907, on the brink of its statehood, Pamela Morsi’s Wild Oats makes for a lovely bushel. (Oats come in bushels, right?). Divorced and impecunious Cora Briggs is the town scandal, so when young undertaker Jedwin Sparrow feels ready to, well, sow some oats, she seems lik ...

Garters

In the town of Vader, Tennessee, the Crabbs are the poorest family, so Esme Crabb plans to find a prosperous man to marry. Cleavis Rhy not only owns a store filled with delicious foodstuffs but lives in a big house, which makes the decision easy for her, and Pamela Morsi’s Garters begins with Esme ...

Courting Miss Hattie

Pamela Morsi’s Americana romances always give me a cozy feeling when I pick them up, as if I’m about to wrap a quilt around myself and sip hot chocolate. Courting Miss Hattie, set in Arkansas in the early 1900s, was no exception when it came to the warm fuzzies, but something in the execution pr ...

Heaven Sent

Pamela Morsi’s Heaven Sent begins when Hannah Bunch, a preacher’s eldest daughter, decides she’s ready for a home and family of her own. Problem is, she’s been the responsible mainstay of her family for so long that they don’t seem to think she needs anything more. She’s a respectable sp ...

The Runabout

Pamela Morsi’s Wild Oats was a delightful read that put a fun twist on the trope of a woman being delivered an indecent proposal, so I was eager to try the second book in the author’s Territory Trysts series. Unfortunately, The Runabout didn’t measure up to my expectations. Plain, outspoke ...

The Love Charm

Big Misunderstanding plots don’t work for me. Beautiful but scatterbrained heroines really don’t work for me. So it was a surprise and delight when Pamela Morsi’s The Love Charm proved the exception and made both these elements work very well. In an Acadian community living by the Vermilion ...

Mr. Right Goes Wrong

This book should have been titled Ms. Good Writer Goes Wrong. While the author has penned many of my favorites (seven of her titles are DIK’s for me) this hot mess almost seemed like it had been written by someone else using her name. After thoroughly screwing up her life Mazy Gu ...

B
Love Overdue

The title to this book is a cute play on words that refers both to the fact that our heroine is a librarian and to a certain facet of the characters’ romantic relationship. That sense of cute, easy fun conveys pretty much what this novel is – a quick, breezy relaxed end of summer treasure. Do ...

A-
The Lovesick Cure

Can an unpretentious story with simple characters set against the backdrop of the Arkansas Ozark Mountains be a Desert Island Keeper? It can when it is written by Pamela Morsi and includes her trademark humor and gift of storytelling. With a fixed fake smile on her face and a litany of “I am ju ...

The Bikini Car Wash

Andi Wokowicz is a desperate woman. She gave up a successful career to move back to Plainview, TX in order to help her dad with her developmentally disabled sister. She needs a job - preferably a good one - if she ever wants to rent her own place and be an asset rather than burden to her father. Th ...
