Grace Mallory is tired of running, of hiding. But when an old friend sends an after-hours telegraph transmission warning Grace that the man who has hunted her for nearly a year has discovered her location, she fears she has no choice. She can't let the villain she believes responsible for her father's death release his wrath in Harper's Station, the town that has sheltered her and blessed her with the dearest friends she's ever known.
Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His telegraph companion, the mysterious Miss G, listens eagerly to his ramblings every night and delights him with tales all her own. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intended for him. Yet when he takes the next step to meet her in person, he discovers her life is in peril, and Amos must decide if he can shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
E. Elizabeth5 Stars Out Of 5Review of Heart on the LineJune 26, 2017E. ElizabethQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking for a stereotypical story with a helpless lady in distress, a devious villain and a dashing hero riding his stallion to rescue his lady from danger, do not read Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer. You will be greatly disappointed... If however, you are looking for a very unordinary story, you will love Heart on the Line, in which the lady is a very intelligent telegrapher; the devious villain is a surprise twist; and the dashing hero is also an intelligent telegrapher who rides to the rescue on his bicycle! You will find twists and turns that will have you laughing at the witty descriptions of the fun characters in Harper Station and sighing over the sweet romance between the two telegraphers, all while holding your breath hoping that they escape danger.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes humor, adventure and romance in a fun historical setting.
Thank you Bethany House Publishers for the wonderful opportunity to review this book!

Ladies of Harper's Station Series Book Two
Grace Mallory has been on the run for over a year. She has to finish the job her father started, but she hasn't found the evidence yet. She's found sanctuary in Harper's Station for the past year...but her enemy has finally caught up to her.
Amos Bledsoe is waiting for the right woman to come into his life. The women in his town haven't even given him a chance. He's not that handsome, brawny, cowboy type the women go for. When he becomes friends with a fellow telegraph operator, he considers meeting her in person. Hoping she isn't a fifty-something grandmother.
I fell in love with Amos' character. He's not the usual type hero. He finds himself in Harper's Station around men like Marshal Shaw and Ben Porter...big men who are able to protect their women with their bodies and guns. But Amos has something more...his affection for Grace gives him strength beyond what he even knew he had in him. Loved it.

IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!June 24, 2017IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Heart on the Line is the second novel (and third book) in Karen Witemeyers Ladies of Harpers Station series. It is a standalone story, but youll probably understand the womens colony and their attitude to men better if you at least read No Other Will Do first (and perhaps Worth the Wait as well).
Like No Other Will Do, Heart on the Line is a departure from Karen Witemeyers witty historical romances, in that its more of a witty romantic suspense.
It starts with a Prologue, which I found rather confusingwe were introduced to a lot of off-stage characters in short order, perhaps too many. The point was introducing the central conflict of the novel: that Herschel Mallory has discovered Chaucer Haversham isnt the rightful heir of his fathers fortune, a discovery Mallory pays for with his life, leaving his daughter an orphan on the run.
Chapter One opens a year later. Grace Mallory is hiding in the womens colony of Harpers Station, and working as the local telegraph operator. After hours, she chats online (on the telegraph line, not our ourline!) with Mr A., the telegraph operator in a neighbouring town. All is well, until she receives a late-night coded message that might mean her hiding place has been found.
When Amos Bledsoe hears Miss G might be in danger, he travels to Harpers Station to protect herand to see if the chemistry between them sparks in real life the way it does over the lines. Of course, there is the obvious issue of a man turning up in a womens colony after theyve all been warned to expect bad men but thats sorted out in a most original manner.
Its an excellent novel. Grace and Amos are both great characters, and their shared occupation made for some great moments. The writing was excellent, a perfect mix of humour, romance and suspense, with just the right injection of the Christian faith. There was also a subplot with the man-shy Helen, and I loved that as much as the main Grace/Amos romance plot.
And there was plenty of suspense. The identity of the evildoer was kind of obvious to the reader, but was equally obvious to Grace (yay for intelligent heroines!). That added to the funhow would she keep him from knowing she was onto him? And who would find the missing documents first!
Recommended for all romantic suspense fans.

DMP5 Stars Out Of 5Solid Christian ValuesJune 24, 2017DMPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Karen Witemeyer is one of my go-to authors. She consistently writes characters that exhibit strong Christian values and behavior. This book is no exception. The characters are well developed and I loved how they turned to God through prayer and the use of scripture when danger threatened them. They refused to let fear control them because they had God on their side. Even secondary characters are well developed and past hurts are healed for them through turning to God.
Also, this book not only supplies one romance, it supplies a second one as well as suspense, danger, and some humor thrown in for good measure.
Romance - PG, some kisses
Language - clean
Violence - reaches moderate level during a gun fight.
My rating - 5 stars.
Stephie5 Stars Out Of 5Highly enjoyable Christian historical book!June 22, 2017StephieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really loved this book. It was one of my favorites by Karen Witemeyer. Her books just keep getting better and better. I was very sad when this book was over and can't wait to read the next book in this series.
I enjoyed reading this book about Grace. I love the history, suspense and romance in this book. The book kept my attention from the first pages.
I also enjoyed the storyline of Grace who is a telegraph operator. She ends up talking to a man named Amos over the telegraph. They end up meeting in person and the rest is history! You will have to read the book yourself! I highly recommend this book.
