When Love Calls - a Review

Hannah Gregory doesn’t like keeping rules, but with a job as a switchboard operator being the only way to support her orphaned sisters, she has no choice.  She doesn’t like Lincoln Cole, the attorney who turned them out of their mortgaged home, either.  But when Lincoln persists in hanging around and the attraction between them begins to build, what can she do?
My Opinion:  We all know what’s in the standard Christian fiction. Sparks fly between the feisty heroine and handsome hero, a Christian mentor gives them good advice, they kiss a lot, and then they get married and live happily ever after. 
Well, When Love Calls is like that.  But if it’s standard Christian fiction, it’s standard Christian fiction done well.  The plot is engaging and sweet and all-round a delight to read.  The characters are likeable and full of personality, from the honest but stubborn Hannah, to the gentlemanly Lincoln and the cooking-loving Charlotte and  the loveable Tessa, Hannah's sisters.  I was glad to find out that this book is only the first of a series on the Gregory sisters.  I will definitely be looking forward to Charlotte and Tessa's stories!

Didn't read this one - far too many other books on my TBR schedule but I read Lorna's last series and it was really sweet. This one likewise intrigued me so perhaps at some point I will read it.

Glad you liked it, Maria!

Delightful characters are one thing I like in books. The story line may be about the same in books, but when delightful characters are added, they can make a bit of a different and enjoyable read.
