Goodreads Summery: 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.
Charlotte is a secretary working at a news paper. She wants to be a journalist. Her boss calls her into his office and gives her a opportunity she can’t pass up. She will go undercover as a governess to get the goods on Daniel. Daniel is a professor at a Christian college. He also writes a column in the rival news paper that many business men don’t like and they want him to stop at any cost. Will Charlotte follow through to bring Daniel down or will she find out the truth and will she be willing to risk it all to tell it? Will Daniel’s faith be strong enough to get him through this challenge or will he give in to social pressures?
I liked this book a little better then the first one in the series. I found the story was interesting and I kept holding my breath to see if Charlotte was going to be found out. I did feel the climax was kind of drug out. She would start to tell Daniel but something would happen and she would not. By the time he finally did find out it had lost its punch. I also found the ending to be a little unbelievable. I liked the happy ending but it seems to just all suddenly work out.
Over all it was a good book and I enjoyed reading it. I look forward to the 3rd book due out this summer.
