Book Review: Stealing the Preacher

This book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


About Stealing the Preacher:

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.

My Opinion
This book was a great mix of two of my favorite book genres: humor and historical fiction. But as I read more and more of it, it also turned into so much more: romance, forgiveness, temptation, family relationships and so much more! It is definitely a fun, lighthearted read! 

You should also definitely check out the first book in the series: Short-Straw Bride to see more about Crockett. However, this book can be read as a stand alone book to!
Buy It: You can purchase Stealing the Preacher for $11.64 from Amazon.com
