    Love the whole series! I checked on cities mentioned and went on to read about little Oklahoma oil boom towns inspired by reading this book and the rest of the series. I was most intrigued because I worked in The oilfield as a parts runner and traveled to Healdton almost daily! I love the characters as though they are good friends ! I think the author has done a wonderful job of bringing the flavor of this point time about a rural part of Oklahoma! Blessings from Lindsay Ok... Population 3201 !

    Five ๐ŸŒŸ As usual, Carolyn Brown's characters come to life as the opening chapters unfold. Mrs. Brown writes with insight and humor. I enjoyed the historical setting of the oil boom in Oklahoma and Texas in 1915. Also I enjoy the references to Ardmore, Ok. , since I spent the summer of 1964 visiting my cousins. This book brought back some lovely memories of Ardmore. Thanks. Five ๐ŸŒŸ As usual, Carolyn Brown's characters come to life as the opening chapters unfold. Mrs. Brown writes with insight and humor.

    What Fun! Another joy to read but, be sure to read Carolyn's book titled, "Evening Star" next if you enjoy this one as much as I did. Her character's continue on into it. I made the mistake of reading it first and sort of got the horse before the cart so to speak. They both will stand alone but, more fun if read in order. What Fun!

    Not a bad read This was a interesting read, my second biosphere I wasn't wowed which is unusual with a Carolyn Brown novel. Briar and Clara had a dysfunctional relationship through out most of the book which is a downer. I wasn't thrilled with their wedding and the book needed an epilogue. Did they have a bunch of children? Not a bad read This was a interesting read, my second biosphere I wasn't wowed which is unusual with a Carolyn Brown novel.

    They called her the town idiot Morning Glory by Carolyn Brown is a cute, quick read about living life on your own terms, no matter what others may think of you. This story is set in the early 1900s, but the time period does not define it - the ideas of gossip and false assumptions would stand true in any time.

    A heart warming story From start to finish Morning Glory is entertaining and heartwarming. Clara is a strong willed woman who was jilted and has developed a distaste for men. Briar is a divorced oil man with a four year old daughter who comes to stay at the Morning Glory Inn. Sparks fly and the story begins.

    Cute story during the Oklahoma oil boom Clara Anderson was not going to be swayed by a good looking oil roustabout but eventually love found its way to her heart and Briar Nelson and his daughter Libbey stole it.Her cousins Tilly and Tucker and her boarders from the rooming house add interest to the story.

    Down home read Carolyn Brown deals with home town settings and her characters are like the girl and boy next door. Problems that people have in their lives are revealed and solutions come naturally, but not always without complications nosy neighbors initiate. Fun and easy reading.

    Great Read I have to admit, the head hopping from Point of View to Point of View, took me awhile to get used to, but the story itself was wonderful. Great characters and development. Felt like I was back in the days of prohibition. Loved the main characters were outside of the norm.

    Loved it. Sweet story with great characters. I genuinely liked them all and can't wait to read the next one. Also nice because it is not just overflowing with heaving bosoms or throbbing body parts. Just a sweet little romance that made me smile Loved it. Sweet story with great characters.

    Second Chances. A very fast pace and delightful read. The characters were so vibrant, humorous and likable. The story unfolded skillfully and smoothly against the back drop of industrial, social and emotional chances in a rural area, as war beckoned on the horizon.

    This is such a cute story, great characters, serious and funny. Clara canโ€™t stand oilman Blair at the start but falls in love with him and his 4 year old daughter. Well written, clean and wholesome, a love story that will make you laugh and has a feel good ending.

    Fun read I so enjoy this author. Her books are sweet and special and fun. Clara and Briar are an interesting couple who start as opponents and find their HEA with a few twists and turns in between.

    A good love story. I like the authors style. The early 1900's was a good time for the women getting some rights and ownership. A good love story. I like the authors style. The early 1900's was a good time for the women getting some rights and ownership.

    All the bells and whistles It's a formula. Small town. Silly biases and misunderstandings that are all solved in the end. No one does it better than Carolyn Brown.
