About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Holding the Line (Love Along the Wires, #3) by Jennifer Delamere

Holding the Line (Love Along the Wires, #3)

A widow at just 30 years of age, Rose Finlay is determined to put all ideas of marriage and family behind her and pursue an independent life. But when she notices a young woman about to be led astray by a roguish aristocrat, bitter memories from her past arise, and she feels compelled to intervene. The unintended consequences of her efforts will ultimately force Rose to reexamine her life in a new light.

As the overseer of his two widowed sisters' financial and domestic affairs, John Milburn carries heavy responsibilities for a single man. But he's faced with his biggest challenge when his headstrong niece falls prey to the attentions of a powerful man who could ruin both her and her family.

When Rose and John join forces to protect his niece, they put everything they hold dear--including their growing attraction--in jeopardy.


Holding the Line is the final book in the Love Along the Wires series and it's a totally satisfying conclusion! Rose Young is a thirty-year-old widow who has no desire to marry again but she has to be careful to maintain a good reputation. After all, it's 1881 and Victorian society is very watchful of unmarried women! When she sees a young girl being courted by an older man of dubious character, Rose feels obligated to intervene. What she doesn't count on is the help that she gets from Sophie's uncle, John Milburn. He seems to be the complete opposite of Rose's late husband and Rose finally learns the joy of knowing a true gentleman!

Author Jennifer Delamere gives us another tale with clean romance and interesting historical details about the telephone and telegraph systems that were so important during the late 1800s. She also gives us a reunion with previous characters Emma, Mitchell, Alice, and Douglas, and I enjoyed that The Spinster's Guide to Love and Romance has another chance to shine! Holding the Line is an intriguing look at London society as it once was, and I recommend it to all who enjoy Victorian fiction and Christian romance.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
