She decides she wants to spend some time with her grandfather Buck, an engineer just starting to work on installing a natural gas pipeline in the hills of West Virginia. Her mother has never had anything good to say about her grandfather but Andy wants to get to know him herself and make her own decisions.
Soon she's working alongside Buck as his engineering assistant as the only woman on the construction job - in the freezing cold, rain, mud, bugs, heat, humidity - and finding a side to herself that she never knew existed.
I loved this story. It could have had a better editing/proofreading job done on it but the story itself rocked. I worked in and around the construction field for years and the story is pretty realistic. There's a definite bias against women in most construction jobs and if a woman is interested in excelling, it's something she needs to make her peace with - somehow.
I liked the realism, the characters, the locale, the romance. I thought Buck was a great character. This was a fun story to read. I was sorry to see it end.
I received this book from Augustine Press through Net Galley in exchange for my unbiased review.
Love on the Line is a fantastic example of a woman’s strength and perseverance and I was cheering for her the entire time. This was so different from things I have read and it was a joy to read a novel about a woman’s physical and emotional challenges of taking a job where women are not the norm. It was my pleasure to read and review this novel and cannot wait to read more from this author in the future!
*Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review!
The Pearls – I love the idea of a woman at work series. I am glad the author is kicking it off with a woman on the pipeline. She makes the tension of Andy working in a male dominated world, tangible.
The characters were outstanding. The author had a good grip on her characters. My favorite character was the Grandpa Buck. He was rough on the outside but had a heart of gold on the inside. Andy’s relationship with Buck really sets the tone of the story. All character was well developed. Andy was an interesting character. She wasn’t too sure of herself in the beginning but grow in confidence as the story develops.
The themes in the story were compelling. There was a strong theme of family ties. I really liked that. Andy was close with her parents and she grew close to Buck. Rooster also had a close relationship with his mother. His relationship motivates him through out the story.
The book was very dynamic.
The Sand – The Pacing was slow at first and was hard to stick with it. When the romance got more prominent, it became easier to stay engaged.
Tristan (Rooster) is one of the foremen and is against Andy working at the pipeline. She is too small he deems and the work is too dangerous and physical. He is however attracted to Andy. His goal is to make a good impression on the engineer and discovering that's Andy's grandfather makes it difficult. And when the job ends, Rooster will go on to another pipeline-job while Andy will go home.
I thought this was quite an interesting book. Not your usual romance! The only thing I disliked was the family misunderstanding, that could have been resolved easily years ago. There could have been a bit more at the end, an epilogue would have been nice!
I requested and receiced an ARC via Netgalley and this is my voluntary review.
