Witemeyer Returns with Her Trademark Blend of Adventure, Romance, and Humor
Grace Mallory is tired of running, of hiding. But when an old friend sends an after-hours telegraph transmission warning Grace that the man who has hunted her for nearly a year has discovered her location, she fears she has no choice. She can't let the villain she believes responsible for her father's death release his wrath in Harper's Station, the town that has sheltered her and blessed her with the dearest friends she's ever known.
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 telegraph companion, the mysterious Miss G, listens eagerly to his ramblings every night and delights him with tales all her own. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intended for him. Yet when he takes the next step to meet her in person, he discovers her life is in peril, and Amos must decide if he can shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.

Solid Christian Values
Karen Witemeyer is one of my go-to authors. She consistently writes characters that exhibit strong Christian values and behavior. This book is no exception. The characters are well developed and I loved how they turned to God through prayer and the use of scripture when danger threatened them. They refused to let fear control them because they had God on their side. Even secondary characters are well developed and past hurts are healed for them through turning to God.
Also, this book not only supplies one romance, it supplies a second one as well as suspense, danger, and some humor thrown in for good measure.
Romance - PG, some kisses
Language - clean
Violence - reaches moderate level during a gun fight.
My rating - 5 stars.
Her best yet!
Every book Karen Witemeyer releases is an instant must-read for me, and HEART ON THE LINE is no exception—in fact, I think it may be her best one yet. The story delivers on all the points I've come to love about her books: a light-hearted, toe-tingling romance with depth, a heroine I can relate to, and a hero I can root for! Specifically…
+ "Delightfully nerdy" hero Amos Bledsoe breaks the mold as a bookish, bespectacled champion.
+ The smooth writing style lets readers get fully engaged with the story...
+ ...and an exciting plot keeps the pages flying, making this a fun, fast read.
+ "Online dating" via telegraph in 1894?! Seriously, how fun is that!!
+ A secondary romance adds dimensions to the women's colony at the heart of the series.
+ Buckets of humor abound! Funny books do not always succeed in making me literally laugh out loud. This one did, repeatedly!
+ Spiritual truths in the story come through naturally and without ambiguity.
The bottom line: I loved it on every page!
The publisher provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for promotional purposes. I was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are my own.
