Deeanne Gist's latest, Love On The Line. Some of you might recall I featured this book, about a rural switchboard operator and a Texas Ranger working undercover, in my last Unusual Historicals spotlight.
Guess who else is a character in Love On The Line? Oh, none other than the town librarian. A town librarian who is named after....
Gist even makes her a "Mrs." - so it's nice to know that my name isn't attached to an Old Maid Spinster Librarian Who Is Two Steps Away From Being A Crazy Cat Lady.
The fictional Queen Librarian Of The Universe is apparently only mentioned a few times in the story, and not a terribly prominent character, but still? Squee!
I was going to read a library copy of this, but damn - now I have to buy the book. Well, actually two copies - since I'm sure My Man's mother is going to want to read it as well.
