Stealing The Preacher

For those of you who know me in real life, no this is not the story of how Mike and I met!  Thank goodness I didn't have to "steal" him!!

Meet Karen:
Two-time RITA finalist and winner of the coveted HOLT Medallion and ACFW Carol Award, CBA bestselling author Karen Witemeyer writes historical romance because she believes that the world needs more happily-ever-afters. She is an avid cross-stitcher, shower singer, and bakes a mean apple cobbler. Karen makes her home in Abilene, Texas, with her husband and three children. Learn more about Karen and her books at

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?

My Thoughts About the Book:
I don't typically like books of the historical romance genre.  Many times the plots and endings are predictable and they all begin sounding the same.  I started this book with the assumption it would probably be the same.  While the ending is a bit predictable, Witemeyer has written a beautiful story!  She has restored my faith in the historical romance genre!  Witemeyer's story is full of very "colorful" characters that you will absolutely fall in love with.  The preacher (Crockett) and Joanna are such fun characters to get to know and their love story is tender and faith filled.  This was a surprisingly delightful read that you will enjoy!

Thank you Litfuse Publicity for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour!  Thank you for sending me a copy of the book for the purpose of this review!

Happy Reading,
