4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, very enjoyable, February 4, 2012
This review is from: Love on the Line (Paperback)
I wasn't familiar with Deanne Gist when I picked this book to review but I'm glad I have found her work. Georgie Gail is an independent woman, working as a telephone operator in a small Texas town in the early 1900's. She loves the small town and is quite fine living by herself. Into her idyllic world comes handsome Luke Palmer as a telephone line repairman and Georgie's new boss. As expected, Georgie doesn't like having a man looking over her shoulder. Unbeknownst to Georgie, Luke isn't who he seems - he's really an undercover Texas Ranger looking for an infamous trainer robber. As you would expect in a romance, a relationship begins to develop between Georgie and Luke. I don't want to share too much and spoil the ending. Trust me, it's worth continuing to read.

I really liked this book. The characters were believable and I identified with the independent spirit Georgie possessed. She was a strong woman but you still saw a sweet, tender side. Likewise, Luke was strong but tender in is affections for Georgie. There were plenty of twists and turns in the novel and Gist even threw in a twist I had fleetingly wondered about when I was half-way through the novel. The plot kept moving and there were a couple nights I stayed up too late reading. I wanted to keep reading, I had to know what happened next. I also really appreciated the fact Gist ended the book naturally but provided an epilogue to tie up the "loose ends" in the book. Too often, authors force an ending and I walk away feeling cheated. Gist didn't do that. She let the book finish and then added the final notes afterwards. Overall, this was a really good book and I'm looking forward to finding more of Gist's work.

Bethany House Publishers provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review.
