Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer

I really like reading Karen Witemeyer’s books and Heart on the Line was another captivating novel. As part of her Ladies of Harper’s Station series, Heart on the Line introduces us to Grace, the telegraph operator in Harper Station. She came to Harper’s Station to hide, but an ominous telegraph message alerts her that danger is headed her way. But more is headed her way than that message. So begins story of seeking peace, acceptance, and love. A story of affection and action, Heart on the Line has great characters, and unexpected plot twists.

Witemeyer creates a story of overcoming pain and learning how to heal through her genuine characters in Heart on the Line. I look forward to reading the next book by Karen Witemeyer. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer for my candid review.

Yesterday’s Promise by Michele Paige Holmes

I really enjoyed reading Yesterday’s Promise by Michele Paige Holmes. Holmes knows how to weave a captivating story full of romance and intrigue. Collin is from the McDonald clan in the Scottish highlands, Katie is from the neighboring Campbell clan. Amid warring clans, fate introduces Collin and Katie to each other in a powerful way, but when they come together years later, their fate seems less clear and troubled.

Holmes masterfully uses just the right amount of historical details to draw us into her story of changing times, changing circumstances, and changing lives. By creating such unaffected characters, Holmes shares a poignant story of love, remembering, and seeking hope.

Yesterday’s Promise doesn’t not have a defined conclusion like we anticipate in many series books now so I anticipate a sequel to Yesterday’s Promise that will continue Collin and Katie’s story. I received a complimentary copy of Yesterday’s Promise by Michele Paige Holmes for my candid review.
