I adore her books! I have read Courting Miss Hattie, Garters and Wild Oats. I am half-way through Simple Jess and its my favorite so far. Its WONDERFUL. I am not in any way a fan of Westerns (movies anyway) however I find that I am currently in LOVE with the Americana genre of historical romance novels. Isn't Jess just wonderful - and Althea and Baby Paisley??? What wonderful characters:-)

OMG I just finished this one and loooooved it.  Jess is such a great character.  And so was Althea.  A strong woman with a mind of her own.  I remember starting this book a long time ago and not getting past page 2.  Luckily, I've been re-introduced to Morsi and am enjoying them all.  Actually, that's not true.....I started Sweetwood Bride yesterday and it's bugging me.  She's really spending a lot of time on everyone but the h/h.

I loved Simple Jess.    I was struck that one of the big themes in Morsi's books is honesty in men and when they are dishonest, the hurt and trouble that ensues.  I just ordered a LP of two more of her books so I will see if that theme runs thru them too.  I am looking forward to reading Marrying Stone.

I loved Jess the character but I found WILD OATS, GARTERS, MISS HATTIE more romantic as books.
