Sweet & Entertaining | Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer

ABOUT THE BOOK

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 friendshipdare 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.


MY REVIEW

I always look forward to a new release from Karen Witemeyer, but I was especially excited about Heart on the Line because it continues with the Ladies of Harper’s Station. I loved No Other Will Do and couldn’t wait to revisit the town and its community.

This second book follows Grace Mallory and Amos Bledsoe. The way they get to know one another through telegraph messages is so sweet, and I so loved how Amos is not a hero typically found in a western-set romance. He’s a little nerdy and quirky and wonderful. Arriving danger brings the two together, and the following drama, suspense, action, and romance is excellent. It’s an entertaining gem of a book, and I completely loved Heart on the Line, like No Other Will Do, of course. I recommend it. (Both books, actually.)

★★★★★

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a complimentary copy of Heart on the Line and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
