So, as promised, I trotted to the library and took out Mary Dressel's Visions of Enchantment - the romance that is supposed to take place in Franklin. I don't see it.

We have the plastic drunken frat vibe of Oskies' yard in the downtown.

I haven't really read enough Romance novels to judge this one, but I will say that I giggled everytime she used the word "womanhood" to refer know...tee-hee.

next installment in the series comes out in two weeks.
