Book Review:Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer

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 Review:When I decided to review this book I had no idea it was one of the characters from, "Short Straw Bride". I must say I got excited to get a update to the brothers of the Archer clan in this book since I enjoyed the other so much. You don't have to read the other book to get this book,but you can see a lot about them and where the preacher is from in the other one. I loved "Stealing the Preacher". It just keeps you reading until you just could not put it down. It is quickly on my favorites list now!! I loved all the characters!! This is the first book ever where I had tears coming to my eyes over Jo's Father and the moment where is life changes. I enjoyed the ending very much,it was like I was walking with them in the book. Just a all around good read. Another great one from Karen!!
