Meet Dorothy Jarrow: devotedly unsexy librarian
Buttoned-up book lover DJ is all sensible shoes, drab skirts and studious glasses. After an ill-advised spring-break-fueled fling left her mortified, she's committed to her prim and proper look. When she's hired by a rural library in middle-of-nowhere Kansas, she finally has the lifestyle to match—and she can't wait to get her admin on.
But it's clear from day one that the small-town library is more interested in circulating rumors than books. DJ has to organize her unloved library, win over oddball employees and avoid her flamboyant landlady's attempts to set her up with the town pharmacist. Especially that last part—because it turns out handsome Scott Sanderson is her old vacation fling! She is not sure whether to be relieved or offended when he doesn't seem to recognize her. But with every meeting, DJ finds herself secretly wondering what it would be like to take off her glasses, unpin her bun and reveal the inner vixen she's been hiding from everyone—including herself.

How do you mend a broken heart?
You could spend a week wearing a disgusting, smelly yarb poultice, concocted by a genuine Ozarks granny woman.
Or maybe you’d prefer a secret, no-strings affair with a man you just met. Jesse Winsloe tries both treatments in my latest novel, THE LOVESICK CURE. Between hog slopping, chicken tending and piccalilli production, this refugee into the Lifestyles of the Poor and Redneck finds a local love interest and a home she never knew existed.
