This book was such an enjoyable read! I love that the hero is a skinny, glasses-wearing nerd with a penchant to talking in his head to the muscled cowboys around him. It was funny both funny and adorable but also had so much in there about love, worth, friendships, loyalty and how intimately God cares about each of us. Loved learning all about the 'wire' and how messages used to be sent too. Such fun!
This continuing story of the women of Harper's Station does not disappoint. Grace's story is sweet, ingenious and a little tense at time. I loved relationship Grace develops with Amos over the telegraph lines and how it continues to develop throughout the story. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the story but most of all I love the sense of community, love and acceptance that comes across as you journey with the people living in Harper's Station. A really beautiful story to read.
Heart on the Line is the second novel (and third book) in Karen Witemeyer's Ladies of Harper's Station series. It is a standalone story, but you'll probably understand the women's colony and their attitude to men better if you at least read No Other Will Do first (and perhaps Worth the Wait as well). Like No Other Will Do, Heart on the Line is a departure from Karen Witemeyer's witty historical romances, in that it's more of a witty romantic suspense. It's an excellent novel. Grace and Amos are both great characters, and their shared occupation made for some great moments. The writing was excellent, a perfect mix of humour, romance and suspense, with just the right injection of the Christian faith. There was also a subplot with the man-shy Helen, and I loved that as much as the main GraceAmos romance plot. And there was plenty of suspense. The identity of the evildoer was kind of obvious to the reader, but was equally obvious to Grace (yay for intelligent heroines!). That added to the fun-how would she keep him from knowing she was onto him? And who would find the missing documents first! Recommended for all romantic suspense fans.
