Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist
Gist writes with her stellar story telling talent, however this book did not excite me the way Maid to Match and Bride in the Bargain did. I’ve spent some time trying to figure out why and the only thing I can figure out is that I didn’t care for the bird side of the story which is an important component to the book.
Despite that, I have to say that Gist has believable and very likeable characters. Sometimes a book will capture you from the start and not let go of you. Gist usually does that for me, just not this time. The more I think about it, it is because of the birds. I love birds but I guess I don’t have the passion that a true bird lover would.
So don’t dismiss this book because of my review. You may find you enjoy it cover to cover without stopping because Gist is a fantastic storyteller.

About the book:
It’s a Battle of Wills … and Love Is on the Line!
Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man’s
world . . . which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder.
Dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears though. He’s a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stakeout puts Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.
Deeanne Gist–known to her family, friends, and fans as Dee–has rocketed up the bestseller lists and captured readers everywhere with her very original, very fun historical & contemporary romances. Add to this three RITA nominations, two consecutive Christy Awards, rave reviews, and a growing loyal fan base, and you’ve got one recipe for success.
She has a very active online community on her website at IWantHerBook.com and at Facebook.com/DeesCircle.
