Let me put it this way – if you do not work in a library but you are a big library user (which, if you are reading this, you probably are) then you will find Love Overdue cute, charming, and sweet.
However, if you do work in a library, then you will find this book irritating, condescending, and maybe just a little cute, charming, and sweet.
Some clarifications need to be made before I continue:
Not everyone that works in a library wears their hair in a bun ( even more so for the males).
Not everyone wears sensible shoes (OK, I do. But check out my co-workers – they wear amazing styles!).
Not everyone wears glasses on the tip of their nose (OK, once again, I do. But just for reading!).
Not everyone in a library wears frumpy suits (actually, not one single person does that here).
WE DO NOT SAY SHHHHH!!! EVER!
All that aside, Love Overdue is the story of Dorothy Jarrod, who has recently moved to a small town in Kansas to (you guessed it) become the head librarian in a very small, dated library. DJ (as she likes to be called) is really excited about making a fresh start. Her whole life has been mundane, except for one small indiscretion. While on vacation on her 21st birthday, she met the “hot guy” and engaged in a few activities she would rather forget. Now jump ahead 10 years, and here she is with a whole new life ahead of her and her past behind her. Or so she thinks…
