Grace Mallory is tired of hiding. She hungers for a normal life, perhaps even a suitor like two of her friends in Harper's Station have found. But when the man she believes responsible for her father's death discovers her whereabouts, survival takes priority.
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 fellow telegrapher, the mysterious Miss G, has been the ideal companion. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--over the wire has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intends for him. However, when he intercepts an ominous message and discovers her life is in peril, Amos must shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
I must say I am a big fan of Karen's and love the way she writes. This is another book set in Harper's Station and is as full of mystery, action and suspense as the other books set there. The chemistry between Grace and Amos is great and I love the way they can communicate without other's knowing what they are saying.
However this story was lacking in something and I can't put my finger on what? I actually found the other side story with Helen as interesting. Again you will have to read the book to see what that is all about.
Stars out of 5 : 3 A nice book and one you can read and not get confused over. It was one of my "shopping list," books where you can read it and think of other things at the same time. I probably won't remember it though in a month's time. This was not one of Karen's best books.
