Love on a Dime by Cara Lynn James

In a time when working women are considered scandalous, Lilly Westbrook spends all of her time writing dime novels under the name of Fanny Cole.  As fans grow eager to meet the famous Miss Cole and as the 19th century tabloids threaten to reveal her cover, Lilly becomes anxious about being found out and scorned by her family and friends.  While deciding whether to tell her family about her secret, she must also decide between her wealthy beau Harlan and her first love Jackson Grail.
From beginning to end, this book held my interest as I read about Lilly’s unique adventures.  Ms. James designed an excellent plot, keeping me in suspense until the very end and weaving her faith seamlessly into the story.  This book is not at all preachy, and the references to Christianity seem completely natural, making Love on a Dime one of the best Christian fiction books I have read so far.  I was thoroughly entertained by this novel, and I definitely recommend it.  In fact, I am eagerly awaiting the sequel Love on Assignment available in January 2011.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.
