Sometimes real life is better than fiction

Small-town librarian Tess Bucek can't help it if her imagination runs wild. Fiction is simply more fun than reality. So when the mysterious Connor Reed wanders into her library she's sure he's up to no good. But it doesn't take long before she discovers Connor has come north to escape the notoriety that accompanied his involvement in a sensational trial.

Now that he's here, Connor sees that Tess will be the perfect person to help him in a matter he prefers to keep quiet—not easy to do in a town where everyone knows your business.

This book was a slow G rated romance. The romance scenes were lame. This is a romance for middle schoolers.

In Alouette off of Lake Superior, librarian Tess Bucek lets her imagination run wild when enigmatic Connor Reed enters the library where she works. She pictures him as either the hero or villain in every detective book she ever read. When he looks at a book on Lighthouses, she assumes that the handsome stranger is a Canadian smuggler or a pirate. Tess sighs as she knows that growing up in limited environment with a single depressed mother led to her runaway imagination............................... Connor is actually escaping the nasty taint of his role in a New York City media trial event. He selected Alouette as his haven because he spent summers as a child here with his grandfather and his elderly relative resides in a nearby nursing home. After watching her work with children, he shocks her when the thirty-nine year old visitor asks Tess to teach him to read, but he clears the mix-up as he wants her to actually help his grandfather learn to read. As Connor and Tess become acquainted they fall in love, but he is big city and she is small town making a relationship impossible except perhaps the impetus of a crusty matchmaking geriatric who loves both of them................................... THREE LITTLE WORDS is a fun contemporary romance starring two wonderful lead characters and charming residents of a small Michigan town. The story line is relatively simplistic yet entertaining as neither Tess nor Connor expected love, but both relish and fear it as compromise seems impossible to find. The teaching to read to an adult adds depth to Carrie Alexander¿s fine tale that sub-genre readers will find quite pleasant.......................... Harriet Klausner
