In 1904 Texas Ranger Luke Palmer arrives in Brenham, Texas, with one goal--to capture the gang of outlaws led by Frank Comer. Undercover as a telephone repairman, he uses his days on the range to search, not realizing there's another pair of eyes watching him. Georgie Gail, switchboard operator and birder, heads out on a birding expedition, but instead of sighting a painted bunting, her opera glasses capture her telephone man, armed and far away from telephone lines. Palmer is forced to take this alluring troublemaker into his confidence and unwittingly puts her in harm's way. The closer he comes to the gang, the further she works her way into his heart--and into trouble. Soon it's more than just love that's on the line.

Although the story was silly and average at best, it was fun to read. Deeanne GIst is a fun author to read.

A pretty predictable story although I really enjoyed reading about how the early telephones worked and how the lines were strung.

An interesting story with believable characters. I enjoyed the description of the telephone exchange. My Mom worked on the Eaton's switchboard and I would watch her put the cables in the little holes wondering if she ever mixed them up.

I have been waiting to read this book and was so excited to get it. I enjoyed all the historical information on what it was like to run an early switchboard, and talk on the party lines where anyone can listen in. It was good but didn't quite live up to my expectations - the main characters are just a little too odd to relate to and some of the events in the book a little too unbelievable. Of course not everything has to be likely to happen in real life but you don't want it to be too big a stretch. Well written, but I would say a little strange at times.
