Publisher's Summary

When Gidry Chavis returns to his Texas hometown to reconcile with his dying father, he must also face Prudence Belmont, the fiancé he jilted eight years ago with no more than a brief note, a woman who is no longer a gullible girl but a determined grownup with ideas of her own. Pamela Morsi's strong sense of time (the 1890s) and place and lightly realistic humor add to a gentle romance that is pure Americana and purely charming. Roses, streetlights, and a pair of well-matched protagonists combine in this well-written, captivating story of rekindled love that will definitely appeal to Morsi's many fans. Morsi is a Rita award-winning writer and lives in San Antonio.

From the first moment she met her new Texas neighbor, Prudence Belmont was in love. When she was old enough for marriage, Gidry Chavis promptly presented her with an engagement ring, and all her dreams seemed to have come true. But the hellraising Gidry disappeared before the wedding, leaving only a brief note in explanation. "My dear Miss Prudence, I have determined that it is best that we do not wed. Please forgive me and recall me with fondness." Now Chavistown's notorious favorite son is back, wiser, remorseful, sunbrowned and manly. Everyone in town has accepted his transformation to a hardworking town leader - all except Pru. After all, only a man with wicked thoughts could believe that she, the president of the Ladies' Rose and Garden Society, would mail out racy postcards, and only a cad would demand bribes of kisses to keep quiet. If he thinks he can win her love again, he's wrong. Or is he? "My only lover, I am ready to fulfill your every desire, if you will agree to grant my dearest wish...Yours soon to be..."

    Story
    "Love Lessons Learned"

    This is a very well written and narrated story of love, rejection, redemption, and love. It is a sweet "Life" story that is based on coping with rejection. The story is true to life and the endearing characters are ordinary people who have hurts, fears, resentment and regrets. It really shows how love comes to everyone differently and how decisions and reactions (good or bad) can change the outcome of your future. Good lessons to live buy.

    Put this one on your list when you are looking for a thoughtful story with great narration.

    I would like to thank the author, narrator and/or publisher for giving me this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review ;-)

    Story
    "Excellent Update to Texan Historical Romance!"
    Any additional comments?

    Rating 3.5 stars. Sealed With a Kiss by Pamela Morsi just received an excellent update with an audiobook narration. Originally published in 1998, Sealed With a Kiss is set in 1890's Texas and centers around Prudence Belmont and Gidry Chavis. The story begins with Gidry's return to town after his father experiences a stroke in the town's cotton gin. He hasn't been to town for eight long years because he and his father exchanged harsh words when Gidry ran off with a bar maid from the local saloon, despite being betrothed to Prudence. Sparks fly between the pair almost immediately upon his return, and there are several misunderstandings that need to be cleared up before Prudence can forgive Gidry.

    What I enjoyed most about at the story were the great secondary characters. Prudence's aunt is amazing and held onto her first love for 50 years. There is also this endearing orphan little boy who is well versed in the cruel harsh world. Prudence takes care of him, and Gidry helps him out too, unbeknownst to the other.

    I listened to the Audible audiobook narrated by Pam Dougherty. Her narration was natural and easy to listen to. She really brought the characters to life giving each one their own distinct voice, including the little boy. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

    "Relationships and Conversations"

    The narration was excellent. I think it contributed to the mood of the story in a positive way. Sharpy was my favorite character so much that I would like to read even more about him. Prudence and Aunt Hen were admirable heroines. Unfortunately Gidry was not my cup of tea. I did however appreciate the conversations, explanations and relationships.

    "Very entertaining historical!"


    This is a very entertaining book about Prudence and Gidry. Eight years ago Prudence Belmont was left by her childhood sweetheart, Gidry Chavie. Now he comes back to town believing he can catch up where he left things between them but Prudence doesn't agree so easily. The book is sweet and the plot is very interesting.
    Pam Dougherty dos a great job narrating this book.

    "Sealed with a Kiss"
    Any additional comments?

    There is more than one love story woven into this book.

    Gidry Chavis left Chavistown, his home and Prudence Belmont his intended bride 8 years ago after basically writing her a "dear john" letter. Now he's back. The sparks start flying immediately as well as the misunderstandings and miscommunication. Old wounds of the heart, a little mystery, an orphan and stubborn pride add to this second chance at love story.

    Unfortunately, I just didn't connect with either of the main characters. The story just never pulled me in.

    Pam Dougherty did a great job with the narration. She has a pleasant voice that is easy on the ears. The southern/country accent was perfect for the story. Her character voices were all very well done.

    "Love eight years to get it right"
    Any additional comments?

    The author gives you a story inside a story of love lost with two men leaving town in different years for different reason losing the love they had. Two women who have always been there and they felt they always would. What these men found is they may have made the biggest mistake of their lives but young dumb we do not always see the road ahead and sometimes make the right choice for the wrong reason or the other way around. One thing for sure every road we take makes us the person we are today as you will see in this lovely story if one person changed one thing their lives would have changed then there wouldn’t be the people around they love today. Can one man and one woman learn from the other couples mistakes forgiving and forgetting the past? One thing is for sure there will be many misunderstandings that will keep you laughing out loud at these two as they butt heads over and over again seeing things as they see them not as they are. There will be times you will want to get out a tissue as the love of the older couple turn back the pages and relives years long ago and all they have loss.

    Ms. Dougherty did a great job of narrating this audio it did take me a little time to get into her voice. I have also listened to other samples of her work and feel this voice was more for the time period and how things were done back then. This narrator has many different voices she uses in other audios you would never know it was the same lady which is truly amazing to me. In this audio her many different character voices were outstanding. Her male voices were as good as her female ones, you never have trouble knowing who is talking or what they are feeling. You will laugh with some characters and other you will feel their pain and sorrow. There will be times you heart will break along with the character leaving you wishing you could lend a shoulder. The narrator brings this out more so than if you were just reading she really brings the story to life as she leaves you chuckling at little Sharpie who is a delight. There are not any background noises just a clear fun audio. The narrators tones are even smoothly delivered there is no doubt you will get lost in her voice as she brings this audio to life. I look forward to listening to more from Ms. Dougherty.

    What I really enjoyed in this story was Sharpie, Aunt Hen, the mystery of who was stealing, the head butting between Prudence and Gidry, the electric lighting and how they thought it might affect their land, the postcards added so much to this story I really laughed myself silly once I got over the shock. There are so many wonderful parts that the author and narrator give us. It really was a lovely audio with meaning and feeling. It has a lovely ending but I would have loved to have seen what happened with aunt Hen and who was Sharpies father.

    The author writing is truly lovely as she twisting the story to give you humor and making you feel the characters pain. A lot is going on but you have no trouble keeping up. She spins a little mystery along with a little jealously which really pulls the reader in. Leaving you with the question of what is up with that wooden leg? lol Aunt Hen tells a wonderful story of their past and how it could affect Pru . She is a wise women who has a way about her that she can get the point across making you think it was your idea. What you get with this audio is a delightful listen which will leave you smiling, almost in tears at time, only to make you laugh out loud. It has a wonderful plot with wonderful characters that you can relate to and I feel sure in some way part of this most likely has happen to most of us. This is the first I have story I have read/listened to of the author and narrator. I look forward to picking up more of each of their works.

    Story
    "An Old West Love Story"
    What did you love best about Sealed with a Kiss?

    The story was well written and thought out. The characters did not follow the typical storyline that you expect in a romantic novel, which was nice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sealed with a Kiss?

    I loved how the 'electric street lights' might destroy the flowers. I can imagine when they first came about that people were worried about such things. Things like this helped to show how the author put some thought into her storyline.


    Have you listened to any of Pam Dougherty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I have listened to a Pam Dougherty story. I don't have too many complaints. She had just enough of a change in the voices so I knew who was who.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just who stole the leg? HAHA!

    "A Cozy Romance with an Old West Flavor"

    I found SWAK a very enjoyable listen.
    There were some very well drawn and narrated characters and story points and, though I'm more of a mystery girl, it held my interest all the way through.
    Pam Dougherty reads this story with a genre-appropriate gentleness as well as with a fine expertise.

    "Miscommunications"

    Eight years after Prudence Belmont was jilted by her childhood sweetheart, Gidry Chavis, he comes back to town thinking he can say a few sweet words and have her back in his good graces again. Prudence has no interest in being part of anything that will cause a scandal. This book was sweet and funny. The characters were lovable. There were a lot of miscommunications between the 2 main characters, which kept the story moving.
    Pam Dougherty did a great job narrating this book.

    Story
    "Lively, Emotional and Entertaining!"

    Narration Pam Dougherty - Really Good! I just love Pam's narration :) She does such a good southerny twang and her children are fun and adorable. Oh my gosh, her interpretation of Sharpy was hilarious and yet also very touching and sweet. Loved it!!!

    This story contains so much more than you expect. There's the story of our main characters Gidry and Prudence and a love lost - and found? Then we have a secondary story line with Gidry's father and aunt Hen that is just touching and heartbreaking. As Aunt Hen shares the history of their relationship, you come to find out the ways it affected the outcome of the other. Then we have all that revolves around little Sharpy and how his life ties in with everyone in the story. All of these story lines tie together seamlessly with each being fully developed with lively, emotional and entertaining characters.

    I especially enjoyed Gidry's time with his father. We get to see him interact with Pru and the rest of the town, but when he's with his father we get a more in depth look at his inner being and his thoughts on life and Pru.

    There are, of course many misunderstandings, jumping to conclusions and failures to effectively communicate as one would expect in a romance, but this was still thoroughly enjoyable!

    I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an unbiased review.
