Series: Ladies of Harper's Station
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.
hes75 Stars Out Of 5Heart on the LineNovember 14, 2017hes7Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I always look forward to a new release from Karen Witemeyer, but I was especially excited about Heart on the Line because it continues with the Ladies of Harpers Station. I loved No Other Will Do and couldnt wait to revisit the town and its community.
This second book follows Grace Mallory and Amos Bledsoe. The way they get to know one another through telegraph messages is so sweet, and I so loved how Amos is not a hero typically found in a western-set romance. Hes a little nerdy and quirky and wonderful. Arriving danger brings the two together, and the following drama, suspense, action, and romance is excellent. Its an entertaining gem of a book, and I completely loved Heart on the Line, like No Other Will Do, of course. I recommend it. (Both books, actually.)
Thanks to Bethany House, I received a complimentary copy of Heart on the Line and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Charming bookNovember 6, 2017alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heart on the line is the latest offering by Karen Witemeyer and the second book in the Ladies of Harper Station series.
Harper Station is a safe town that was founded and is run by women who, for different reasons need to feel safe from the world. Grace Mallory has become the town's telegraph operator. After the office is closed for the day, Grace has found friendship with a neighboring towns operator. But when Amos overhears that Grace at Harper station is in trouble he knows he must help.
We first meet Grace in the first book and I really enjoyed getting to know her better in this book. She is a great character full of life. She is smart and fearless, yet she also knows when she needs help.
I have to admit that I really liked Amos. He wasn't your typical hero. He was such a great match for Grace. They were a very believable couple and had great chemistry together. Both of them using their minds and working together outsmart our villain Chaucer Haversham,
The secondary story, Helen and Elliot or Lee for short, in my opinion was just as good and It was nice to see Helen's story worked out and how it tied into Graces'. Lee and Helen were a great couple. They balanced out each other so well.
The story itself was as always a well thought out and most of the book is conversation which makes it a fast, easy read. There were some christian elements, but they seemed to be overshadowed by the story. Overall, it was a book that will make you want to see what is on the next page.
Although this is part of a series, this book can be read as a stand alone because it's not a continuation of the first book.
CozyWriter'sDen5 Stars Out Of 5A Delightful storySeptember 30, 2017CozyWriter'sDenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you haven't already been reading Karen Witemeyer's new series, "Ladies of Harper's Station", then I really must insist you remedy that immediately. This series is filled with gutsy women who claw themselves up out of the ashes of their lives to not only survive, but thrive at the women's only town of Harper's Station. Harper's Station is a town for women, and it is filled with women who have fled from abusive husbands, unsavory occupations, and desperate need. Together, these women have built their own viable community.
It is into this established community that Grace Mallory finds herself after her father is tragically murdered. Determined to remain hidden from her father's killer, Grace seeks refuge in a town where no men are allowed. Despite her careful efforts, Grace is sent an urgent message that the murderer will soon be arriving at Harper's Station. As expected, the women of Harper's Station rally in epic fashion, but hope also arrives in another rather surprising - and rumpled - way. A Heart on the Line is a well written novel with a delicate, sweet romance between two flawed beings. Their love-story is worth reading.
Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and to Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of Heart On the Line in exchange for my honest opinion.
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Delightful storySeptember 25, 2017Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heart on the Line is exactly what you expect from a Karen Witemeyer book -- a delightful story with fun characters and lively adventure.
A female telegraph operator in a town populated mostly by women and her bicycle-riding male counterpart in a nearby town ensure an entertaining read. The story includes danger and romance, with plenty of quirky characters to keep things lively.
This is the second book in the Ladies of Harper's Station. It works well as a stand-alone, but I look forward to reading the first book to answer questions about some of the characters and their stories.
I highly recommend Heart on the Line for anyone interested in a fun historical story.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts for this review.
homesteadingHampton Roads -- VAAge: 45-54Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A moving work of fictionSeptember 15, 2017homesteadingHampton Roads -- VAAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dependable can sometimes seem like a dull word but in this case it means anything but. Witemeyer is a dependable author. By this I mean her stories always can be depended upon to model utmost moral character while at the same time exhibiting the most charming romance. I find this a refreshing attribute. I never have to worry that the latest narrative might contain anything of an objectionable nature. Therefore, I highly recommend any of her books but especially Heart on the Line.
Amos Bledsoe didn't strike me as a swoon worthy hero in the beginning. He is not your quintessential tall, dark, and handsome man. But what Amos 'lacks' in physical hero qualities, he more than makes up for in his character. By the end, I absolutely adored him! He is witty, brave, staunchly in love with Grace, and willing to put his heart on the line. What more could a lady ask for?
Grace Mallory is hiding out in a small women's colony after witnessing a tragic event. I liked her character but didn't really connect to her in any way. The lady who did capture my attention was Helen. With a prickly pear demeanor and an air of mystery surrounding her, I found her fascinating. Helen's love story is secondary to Grace's, but stole the show, in my opinion.
"She glanced at the sky, where a handful of puffy white clouds swam lazily across the bright blue expanse. So peaceful. Perhaps even happy. Helen didn't really know what happiness felt like. To her, it was simply the absence of pain. Yet when she looked at a sky like this one, something inside her whispered that there could be more. There could be joy that led to dancing, to laughter, to a place where fear could not penetrate." (Witemeyer, pg. 100)
There is a prequel novella, Worth the Wait, and the first novel, No Other Will Do. Although Heart on the Line is the second full length book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Fans of historical fiction with strong Christian values, mystery, and romance will enjoy this book.
I received a print copy from Bethany House for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. No compensation has been received.
