Book Review: Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer


BHP_Stealing the Preacher_N2.inddStealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer, sequel to Short-Straw Bride, is now on my “favorites” list. Just like Short-Straw Bride. It starts with a most unusual scene—a train robbery. What are the bandits looking for? A preacher. Why? The daughter of the leader of the gang has been praying for one. So, of course, daddy wants to grant her wish. He doesn’t know why she wants a preacher to come to town. If he did, he probably would have left the man on the train.

Crockett Archer, the preacher, is minding his business on his way to an interview with a church in another town when his life is turned upside down by his kidnapping.

Joanna Robbins, daughter of the robber, can’t believe her eyes when she sees what her daddy has done. In classic Karen style, lives are shaken up and changed in this book. She knows how to write believable characters and great settings that are real. She writes of love and faith, hardships and pain, and makes you smile all the way until the end. You’ve got to read this book!  

I recently interviewed Karen here on my blog. Although the giveaway she offered is no longer available, it’s still a great interview to read.

I received Stealing the Preacher from the publisher for a fair review.
