HEART ON THE LINE
A Ladies of Harper's Station Novel
When Danger Arrives, it's more than just her heart on the line
Grace Mallory is tired of hiding. She hungers for a normal life, perhaps even a suitor like two of her friends in Harper's Station have found. But when the man she believes responsible for her father's death discovers her whereabouts, survival takes priority.
Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His fellow telegrapher, the mysterious Miss G, has been the ideal companion. For months, their friendship -- dare he believe, courtship? -- over the wire has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intends for him. However, when he intercepts an ominous message and discovers her life is in peril, Amos must shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
Witemeyer has a flair for romantic comedy and it really shines in this novel. The kind of story that induces grins and giggles while a reader basks in the warm glow of all that humour and romance.
Speaking of which..Amos Bledsoe!!!! An unconventional hero. Tall and lanky. A bespectacled telegraph operator who prefers bicycles to horses. A man of intellect, not action...unless the woman he loves is in danger! And the fact that Grace and Amos begin their romance courtesy of the telegraph wires! Online dating in the 1890s -- so much fun!!!!
I love the mix of Historical and Suspense so the danger and intrigue upped my reading pleasure to euphoric levels. :-) Amos comes charging to the rescue on an unusual steed which results in a huge mix-up that can only be sorted out by Morse Code (of course!) Honestly, the way this story is put together is sheer brilliance.
Grace and Amos match wits and intellect to bring resolution to Grace's desperate dilemma as a sinister villain closes in on them. Page-turning stuff of the highest caliber.
An abundance of love, laughter and danger combine to make this an exciting addition to the Ladies of Harper's Station novel. (And there's even a bonus secondary romance to swoon over!)
Please note: Heart on the Line can be read as a standalone novel, though you'll want to read the first book in the series, No Other Will Do, because it's sooo good. And the author has two Ladies of Harper's Station novellas as well.
