Garters by Pamela Morsi

 

Following on from loving Pamela’s Morsi book “Courting Miss Hattie” I was eager to try another of her books. I wasn’t disappointed. 

Here is the synopsis:

When Esme Crabb steps into the Vader general store one day in 1888, she wants just one thing – the storekeeper – and she has only one way to ensnare him: with the longest legs in all Tennessee. Esme is determined to wed a rich man to save her featherbrained sisters and worthless pa from a life of poverty.

And Cleavis Rhys fits the bill perfectly….

This book was delightful, and I thoroughly recommend it. It’s not quite as re-readable as Courting Miss Hattie, but it’s a page turner and I read it in 2 days. There are some great comic moments and it was hilarious watching Esme chase after Cleavis – something you just expect a woman to do in a historical book. She was determined to get her man! Esme was a lovely heroine. Not well educated, but sharp and determined to get her and her family out of poverty.

The minor characters were great – Esme’s sisters, Armon Hightower (no relation to the tall cop in Police Academy!), Cleav’s mother, Esme’s father. They all had their little quirks and were really lovable. I think the best minor character was Sophrona who was annoying by her constant ability to quote the bible to answer everything! She turned out ok in the end though.

The hero – Cleav was very lovable, and poor man didn’t quite know what to do when he was ruthlessly persued. This book didn’t go on too long by the way – it was just about right.

The love scenes were well written and the sexual tension between the two main characters was great.

So overall a great read….will definitly be reading more Pamela Morsi….
