Book Review: "The Lovesick Cure" by Pamela Morsi
What do you do when your groom gets cold feet and the hots for someone else? For Jesse Winsloe, the answer is clear: head into hiding. Instead of using her layoff at work to plan bridesmaid dresses and bouquets, Jesse flees to Onery Cabin to lick her wounds with her ancient aunt Will, a folk-remedy granny woman who knows the secret to caring for the lovelorn. Sure, Onery Cabin may be right out of Hollywood's Lifestyles of the Poor and Hillbilly, but Marrying Stone Mountain has its charm-including the local physician's assistant, Piney Baxley, a past recipient of Aunt Will's pungent "heartbreak poultice." Between Aunt Will's folk remedies and the spice of a "no strings attached" romance, Jess is beginning to think she's found her own brand of lovesick cure. Because there's nothing like a pinch of confidence and a dash of attraction to mend a broken heart
This the first book I have read by this author. I LOVED it! What a great book. It was a little different that what I am used to in the terms of romance books as most of my books. I really can't describe it. Maybe it was the 'hillbilly' background. Either way it worked.
The dynamics between the main character Jesse and her Aunt Will was great. I loved their interactions with each other and how Aunt Will was loved by all.
The relationship that Jesse starts with the town PA was exciting. Something they both needed in their lives.
I will be looking for more books by this author to read in the future.
