Stealing The Preacher Review

DSC 5571blog

I was excited to read Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer after I read the description on the back, because it sounded like it was going to be such a cute story.  

Crockett Archer is on his way to a new position as a pastor when his train is robbed - only the outlaws came to steal him!  He is taken back to the outlaw's ranch as a "birthday present" for his daughter.  He's anxious to leave and follow God's call, until it becomes clear that God has other plans for him.

I really enjoyed this book - the story was just as cute as I thought it was going to be, and it kept me turning the pages.  I also thought the author did a really good job of incorporating the gospel into the book in a natural way.  The characters were all relatable and likable, even the more minor characters, and the sub-plots kept things interesting.  The ending was just what I wanted it to be (I love happy endings).  I'd definitely recommend Stealing The Preacher if you like western romance stories.

Throughout the book I kept thinking that the author should write books about the other Archer brothers, so I was excited when I learned that she has!  There is another book in this series about a different Archer, and I think I' going to have to pick up a copy. I liked Witemeyer's writing style, and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

Note: I received a copy of this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
