Telephone switchboard operator meets undercover Texas Ranger in this mystery/romance about the search for a romanticized train robbery gang. The historical detail keeps the reader entertained, though all the detail of bird lover Georgie's campaign to stop the use of bird parts on clothing and hats was a bit much. Excellent ending brought an unexpected twist to the story.

Loved the suspense, the humor and the all around story. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to read. Deeanne Gist is one of my favorite authors and she did not disappoint in this book. Well written and one I would definitely read again. Bethany House Publishers sent me this complimentary copy to review for them. All opinions expressed are mine alone

You're an independent woman working as a switchboard operator and spending your off time studying birds. Then, the phone company sends a man to check in things. Would that get your back up? What about when you find out he really isn't a phone repairman, but rather a Texas marshal? Come meet Georgia Gail, the switchboard operator who is proud of what she has accomplished, and Luke Palmer, a Texas Ranger posing as the phone repair guy. The chemistry is fiery and the confrontations between the two electric. Can each see through their individual worlds to find love? Will Luke "get his man"? This entertaining story will keep your attention all the way to the end. I really enjoy Ms. Gist's books. Her writing is realistic and shows just how much time she spends researching. In this book you can not only enjoy the story, but learn about being a switchboard operator and doing some birdwatching. The story comes to life as each character enters, bringing their own special charm to the book. I recommend this to a very broad base of readers including discussion groups. I received my free review copy from Bethany House and thank them very much!

I especially liked this book because I am from East Texas. The story was set in this area and it was interesting to see some very small towns in this story. The author did a great with the little twist also within the story. I found myself very much relating to the main woman

I guess the saying that opposites attract rings true for these characters... a young lady who lives eats and breathes all things birds.. and a rough and tough ranger... sparks fly more than once as they develop strong feelings for each other.. but can they make a life together??? I guess you will have to read the book, I won't spoil it for another reader. I had the plot figured out about half way through, but there were still some things that surprised me. CH

The ending was really cute. Actually the moments between Luke and Georgie were adorable. Recommend the author's other books.

If you like historical romance you will love ANYTHING Deeanne Gist wrights. She has a fun and qwirky style that just keeps me coming back for more."Love on the Line" is no exception. It has a little bit of everything. Action, drama, comedy, and yes it has some intence romantic moments. But what I love about Deeanne's style... she toes the line. Her books are romantic and fun- NOT DIRTY.

Another good book and as a telephone worker, it was fun to see the history of the service embedded in the story.

As with all books I've read by Deeanne Gist, I really liked Love on the Line. I will admit, I wasn't so sure about the name Lucious alias Luke Palmer. BUT it did grow on me as the book progressed. :) I loved the lessons learned by Georgie and Luke, even if I somewhat questioned Luke's tactics in order to catch the infamous Frank Comer. Gist writes so well, one character in particular, Duane, really grew on me, and I loved him by the book's end. Speaking of the book's ending: it was brilliant how it all tied together. I absolutely loved the ending that followed the intriguing pages of the book.
