During the summer of 1900 Charlotte Hale, a native Newporter and secretary for the Rhode Island Reporter, accepts an undercover assignment as temporary governess to Daniel Wilmont's children in order to secretly gather evidence against him.

Publisher's Description

The chance to break the big story is all Charlotte needs to secure her future. But when the truth comes out—it may cost her the love of her life.

Newport, Rhode Island, in 1900—a glamorous resort town where the rich and famous go to see and be seen.

Charlotte Hale isn't part of that world. She's a working girl, a secretary for a local newspaper, who dreams of becoming a real reporter. When her boss offers her an assignment, she jumps at the opportunity. She'll go undercover as a governess to investigate a scandal about her new employer, Daniel Wilmont, a young widowed professor of religion who writes a controversial column in a rival newspaper.

Charlotte's qualms about misrepresenting herself to Daniel soon morph into a deeper quandary. How can she get the goods on a man who turns out to be so honorable? How can she plot the downfall of a family that has inspired her to rediscover her faith? And how can she protect the man she now loves from a scheme she's been part of since the beginning?

A fascinating tale of love and faith in the Gilded Age . . . from the author of Love on a Dime.

"James uses carefully described settings and characters . . . to dramatically contrast life in the Gilded Age in Newport, Rhode Island, between the working class and the wealthy." —Booklist

Romantic Times

4 stars - The second book in the enduring Ladies of Summerhill series is packed full of romance, deceit, laughter and the ever-present chance to forgive not only those who have wronged you, but also yourself. James is a wonderful author who writes her characters as though they were real people, with their flaws and weaknesses laid bare for the reader to see. Readers also get to watch the characters learn and grow from their mistakes.

    This was my favorite out out of the three. I really enjoyed the story of Charlotte trying to get "the dirt" on a professor of religion and regaining her faith in the process. I also appreciated the fact that while Charlotte deceived the professor about who she was, the deception was dealt with and just not sweep under the rug as it is in so many christian novels. Worth the read.

    The Ladies of Summerhill are notorious for getting in over their heads. The 2nd of the series wasn't quite as good as #1.

    Read Love on a Dime, so I naturally had to have the next book in the series. The story line was excellent.

    I really enjoyed Love on a Dime by Cara Lynn James, so I was excited to read Love on Assignment, the next book in the series. I loved diving back into the Gilded Age with Charlotte. Her dream of becoming a news reporter seem attainable when she is given the chance to go undercover as a governess for a wealthy professor. As she gets to know the professor, though, she doubts whether or not he is actually guilty of what the newspaper's owner is accusing him of.

    The story was intriguing and enjoyable. The characters were wonderful. Charlotte and the Professor were as likable as Mrs. Wilmont was detestable. The author did a great job of explaining the underlying currents that made the characters who they were ... back story without going into all the gory details. At times, though, the book dragged a little and there were a few places where the story seemed to jump a bit from one thing to the next. It just wasn't as good as the first book in the series.

    I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers and Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    Cara Lynn James has written another winner. Love On A Dime, her debut novel and first in the Ladies of Summerhill Series was wonderful. I am thrilled that book 2, Love on Assignment is as well written and as delightful a read. Her characters are well developed and she brings to life the era of the early 1900's. I love how her heroine explores new territory for a woman of her day and finds love on the way. Another great read and I'm waiting expectantly for book 3 in the series.
