In age of elegance and excess, Lilly Westbrook longs for a love both true and eternal.
Newport, Rhode Island, 1899, is a place of shimmering waves, sleek yachts, and ladies of leisure. Of opulent mansions that serve as summer cottages for the rich and famous. Home of railroad magnates and banking tycoons--dashing young men and the women who aspire to marry them.
But it's not the place for lady novelists. Especially not those who pen disreputable dime novels. This poses a problem for Lilly Westbrook, because that's exactly what she does.
No one in Lilly's social set knows she pens fiction under the nom de plume Fannie Cole. Not her family or the wealthy young man about to propose to her. And especially not Jackson Grail, the long-lost beau who just bought her publishing company...and who stirs her heart more than she cares to admit.
But Lilly must put aside her feelings and follow the path that will maintain her family's social stature and provide the financial security that everyone is depending on.
Now Lilly faces a double dilemma. Can she continue to protect her secret identity? And will she have the courage to choose the man who will risk it all just to win her heart?
Love on a Dime is a touching, well-written novel whispering the theme that all things are possible with God.

The Quiet EccentricCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Not too shabby...January 13, 2013The Quiet EccentricCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4So, this book was well written and the characters were engaging and the story kept the pages turning, but that's about all. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in it, but I don't think I'd read it again. I found Lilly a little bit frustrating at times, but I suppose when you got involved with a character, it's the sign that the author did a first rate job. My first book by Cara James, and I think I'd definitely give her other books a try!
