Book Review: Heart On the Line

Title: Heart on the Line
Written By: Karen Witemeyer
Genre: Christian Western Romance
Recommended Ages: 15 & up

 

Introduction:

“There is nothing new under the sun.” So says Solomon in Ecclesiastes and I believe he is correct. You know all those online dating sites? Well, apparently the Old West had something similar. The telegraph. Telegraph operator was one of the few jobs a female could have back then and in this book, two operators fall in love over the line.

Characters: 1/1

I really enjoyed meeting each of the characters in this book. Some of them I knew from when I read “No Other Will Do,” but many of them were new to me. As always, Mrs. Witemeyer did a great job with developing her characters.

Dialogue: 1/1

The dialogue had me laughing more than once in this book. Of course, there was some serious dialogue as well, but the author certainly knows how to turn a phrase.

Plot/storyline: 1/1

I liked the originality of this story was refreshing. I’ve read many books and it seems so many of them are basically the same, but with different names and slightly different plots. This one was different.

Overall writing quality: 1/1

Not a single typo and great sentence structure. Karen Witemeyer did a great job with this story.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

I started this before church on Sunday and really didn’t want to stop, but I did. Then I spent most of the day finishing it. So yeah, I think that qualifies as being hard to put down.

Conclusion: 5/5

If you like unique Christian romances, you’ll like this book. It also has humor, difficult situations, and ***SPOILER WARNING*** there is some torture as the antagonist tries to get information from one of the characters. ***END SPOILER*** I really liked the book and highly recommend it.
