A cowboy with a Purple Heart. A reporter with a broken heart. Which one is her Mr. Right?
When Lucy Daniels is rescued from a stampeding herd of cattle by war hero Dale Sumner, sparks fly and headlines are born. Smelling an opportunity, the local newspaper decides to send the couple on a tour selling war bonds–not to mention, subscriptions. Enamored with her handsome savior, Lucy is happy to play her part … until she realizes she may be falling in love with the wrong man.
Ace reporter and aspiring mystery writer Bryce Richard is tasked with building up Lucy and Dale’s budding affair. He can’t think of anything worse for a journalist than switching from hard news to pounding out romantic drivel. Complicating matters, Bryce wishes Lucy would look to him for her happily-ever-after. Only, that would wreck the whole tour and Bryce’s coveted book deal.
When love and lies collide on the front page, will Lucy and Bryce have a chance to write their own fairy tale ending? Or are they already yesterday’s news? A heartwarming romance worthy of the Hallmark Channel, Love, Lies, & Typewriters is a funny, inspirational story of love and courage, perfect for your Christmas break!
My Review ~
I found this book through a blog hop and between the blurb, the cover, and the title, I couldn’t wait to dive into it. And let me just say that the wait and anticipation of how I would like it didn’t even compare to how much I LOVED IT!!!! The writing, the dialogue, time period references, every page just got better and better of this sweet historical romance.
And speaking of pages, at just 158, this novel is a quick read. It’s paced perfectly and with a wonderful and enjoyable writing style, the plot and characters keep your interest to find out what happens to each of the three main characters. The cast of side characters add to the story, and everyone has distinct personalities. I loved the setting for the story, and the Christian elements couldn’t have been more perfect to add to the tale. I won’t get into any spoilers, but the unexpected twist at the ending made me love it even more.
Ms. Blanton, certainly, has a new fan in me.
I give the book 5 Hearts!
