Book Review: Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist

About the Book: It's a Battle of Wills ... and Love Is on the Line!

Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man's world . . . which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder.

Dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears though. He's a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stakeout puts Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.

My Thoughts: Christian historical romantic fiction - yup, love it. I think this is the first book I've read by Deeanne Gist, but it won't be my last!

This was just a really fun book to read. I found the telephone operator thing to be fascinating, and hey, how can a Texas Ranger going undercover not be fun?!

At first I thought the main character was a little off her rocker with somewhat fanatical love of birds. But the farther into the book I got the more I appreciated God's amazing creativity in every aspect of creation, and the more I agreed with her desire to protect these delightful creatures and to stop the killing of birds purely for fashion purposes. (I cannot believe people wore actual dead birds on their hats as a fashion statement!)

I definitely learned a thing or two from reading this novel and it was a refreshing, fast read.

Thank you to Stephanie and Amy from Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
