What a lovely piece of historical fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The storyline was interesting - a woman of status who was secretly writing dime novels with a good Christian message to inspire young women. The main character, Lilly, was a strong and sometimes stubborn female, that I couldn't help but adore, but at times became frustrating.

"Love on a Dime" is one of those stories that you can get lost in. You will find yourself transported back to the Victorian era and can just imagine sitting alongside Lilly in her home or out to a social gathering wandering among all the "beautiful" people. It is also one of those great stories I can share with my teen-aged daughter. That's always a plus in my book!

Cara Lynn James has an amazing way of holding one's interest throughout the story. I'm really looking forward to her next book, "Love On Assignment" which is book 2 of the Ladies of Summerhill Series.
