Review: Stealing the Preacher
Author: Karen Witemeyer
Genre: FICT, Historical Romance
A cowboy who wants to be a preacher. An outlaw’s daughter who wants to change his mind.
On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can’t believe it when he’s forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man’s daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He’s determined to escape–which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request.
For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett he ended up right where he was supposed to be?
With her signature blend of humor, history, and lively western romance, two-time RITA Award finalist and bestselling author Karen Witemeyer delivers a Texas love story sure to steal your heart.
This is a really, really good summer read, that’s for sure. I had wanted to get this book as soon as it came out, basically just because the cover looked hilarious. And I’m happy to say that the story lived up to the picture on the cover.
It only took me a few hours to read the complete book, because it was highly entertaining. This was my first book by Karen Witemeyer so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from her books. But she is a really good writer and has become another favourite author.
The relationship between Crockett and Joanna is filled with love, friendship and based out of relationship with God; A relationship that any couple could be envious of.
I hope you decide to read this book and enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂
