Deeanne Gist has done it again in her latest unique, hilarious, riveting historical romance novel. In Love on the Line, Georgie Gail has a dream career for a young woman in the early 1900′s. By day, she operates the telephone switchboard for her community, and in her free time, she has plenty of time to indulge in her favorite past-time of bird-watching. When Luke Palmer is assigned to work undercover in Georgie’s office, she alternates between resenting his intrusion and finding him fascinatingly mysterious. Luke is attracted to Georgie, but he can’t even tell her who he really is, much less offer her a secure lifestyle, given the nature of his work as a Texas Ranger.
I have read all of Dee’s books, and let me just say, without exception, every time I start one, I end up staying up until the middle of the night to finish it. They’re just that engaging. Her characters are always colorful and memorable and perhaps a bit larger-than-life, and yet are somehow still completely relatable.
If you love historical romance, you will love this book.
