Spinster’s Song (Silhouette Intimate Moments, 1984)

In a stroke of genius, Michigan librarians Mary Kelly and Holly Hibner have decided to be real. Not every book stays relevant and sometimes the library needs to “weed” out or “purge” bad books. So they started a blog, which has now become a full-fledged website (www.awfullibrarybook.net)

One such removed book is Spinster’s Song. Not really because there’s anything “wrong” with the book, besides being a predictable romance novel. But Kelly justifies it like this: “This story is about a doctor named Mary, evidently destined for spinsterhood. Of course there is a the local playboy Rafe and he starts putting the moves on our poor, love starved doctor. Of course he gets the girl and it is more than a casual affair. But I bet you knew that.”
