Home by Morning by Alexis Harrington (Dec 2011)

ImageThis low-key (as in, not hot) romance takes place in Oregon during the influenza epidemic.  I thought it was an above-average romance read:  the writing flows and is free of genre cliche; the plotting and historical detail are interesting; the main characters are likable, and the main female character is additionally a strong and educated person (a medical doctor).  The roadblock that kept the two romantic interests separated for much of the story, was not entirely believable . . . until we finally learn the reason for the roadblock.  Then it makes more sense, though not convincingly.  Harrington’s sequel, Home by Nightfall, came out in July 2012 — Home by Morning (not available in RCLS) was enjoyable, and I’ll be purchasing the sequel for the library.
