Love on Assignment
During the summer of 1900 Charlotte Hale, a native Newporter and secretary for the Rhode Island Reporter, accepts an undercover assignment as temporary governess to Daniel Wilmont's children in order to secretly gather evidence against him.
As he helps her rediscover God, Charlotte learns that Daniel is an honorable man. They unexpectedly fall in love despite their different backgrounds and social positions. Charlotte soon realizes she must defend Daniel against the forces set against him-a willful student with a romantic crush and the newspaper editor determined to destroy his reputation.
This book was an enjoyable one, well written and it kept my interest. There is intrigue, the characters are endearing, very likeable although Mrs. Wilmont doesn't fit into that category.
While I did not read the first book I would very much like to. Charlotte has a decision to make, being the only member of the household that is employed she must choose to make a better living for them.
The romance between Charlotte and Daniel is charming. The setting is enchanting, the whole book was delightful. I give it 4 stars.
I received an e-copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
