Hannah Gregory is good at many things, but that list doesn't include following rules. So when she is forced to apply for a job as a telephone switchboard operator to support her two sisters, she knows it won't be easy. "Hello Girls" must conduct themselves according to strict--and often bewildering--rules. No talking to the other girls. No chatting with callers. No blowing your nose without first raising your hand. And absolutely no consorting with gentlemen while in training.

Meanwhile, young lawyer Lincoln Cole finds himself in the unfortunate position of having to enforce the bank's eviction of the three Gregory girls from their parents' home. He tries to soften the blow by supporting them in small ways as they settle into another home. But fiery Hannah refuses his overtures and insists on paying back every cent of his charity.

When one of Hannah's friends finds himself on the wrong side of a jail cell, Hannah is forced to look to Lincoln for help. Will it be her chance to return to her dreams of studying law? And could she be falling in love?
With historic details that bring to life the exciting first decade of the twentieth century, Lorna Seilstad weaves a charming tale of camaraderie and companionship that blossoms into love. Readers will get lost in this sweet romance and will eagerly look forward to championing each sister's dreams.

This book started out really fun and entertaining. And then it promptly crashed. Mainly due to the incompetence of the heroine. Why are females written to be impulsive and sensless creatures who are constantly trying to prove a point to society? The performance of the female lead in this book was very annoying, EXTREMELy annoying, want-to-slap-her-face annoying! I hate it when authors create such silly characters! I will say that the male lead in this book was charming. At least that helped to earn the book three stars.

A very enjoyable story set in 1908 Iowa. Romance, arson, lawyers, and Hello girls. : )
