Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi
Librarian DJ has just accepted the job of her dreams - running a library in a small Kansas town. Hopefully she'll be able to put down some roots, find a "family", and make a difference with the library. Unfortunately, she soon discovers that her landlord and chair of the library board is the mother of the guy she had a one-night stand with in college. She's mortified to see him again. It's made worse by the fact that he doesn't even remember her.
I saw this book several months ago at the store and wanted to pick it up. I decided to wait and see if the library got a copy - and they did. It's not often you find a romance with a librarian as the main character. I enjoyed the book although the story was a little slow at the start. I found the characters interesting. While there were the stereotypical library employees there was also a nice variety of other librarians in the story. (Just a nitpicky detail - the author calls all library employees "librarians" whether they have a degree or not. I'm used to that, but I know it bothers some readers.) I also liked that several of the side characters had their own stories. It wasn't just a one-dimensional romance.
