Book Review: Love on Assignment

"Love on Assignment" by Cara Lynn James is my first book review of 2011. Doesn't the title sound sexy and adventurous? LOL...even the author's name sounds very sweet and romantic so I definitely had high hopes on this one! Read the synopsis and I can guarantee you'll be sucked in just as I was. 

The synopsis:

While Charlotte is focusing on uncovering sordid information on columnist Daniel Wilmot, her heart leads her into uncharted territory.

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.

I found this book taught a very good moral lesson. Do you prize yourself on accomplishment and wealth? Or do you take the higher road and do what's morally right? It did have a bit more of a religious tone than I would have liked although I did go in expecting at least some amount of religion owing to the fact that Daniel Wilmont is a professor of religion. Overall, it is a good read and I would recommend it to others looking for a mix of romance and religion. I would give this book 4 stars out of 5.


Until next time,

I received this book for free from the publisher through the Booksneeze.com book reviews bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are MY OWN.
