The Archer Brothers Series / Book 2


Good afternoon everyone. Two days till Summer officially begins; although it seems like Summer started weeks ago. Before the 21st I hope to have completed my list of Summer goals. Maybe someone more organized is already done but I'm kind of a procrastinator. I'm not even sure why I make a list of goals because I hardly ever accomplish half of them. :) Definitely something I need to work on.  
 
 
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Book Title: Stealing the Preacher
Series: The Archer Brothers
(Book #2)
Author: Karen Witemeyer

Description: On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he's forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he's haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind--a woman whose dreams now hinge on him.

For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. 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. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, 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 to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna's outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?



My Review: Stealing the Preacher was a great book. I thought the beginning was pretty funny when Joanna's reformed-outlaw father kidnaps Crockett for his daughter's birthday present. Karen Witemeyer has the talent of drawing her reader into the story and this book was no exception.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐


Would I recommend this book? Yes. This book is for anyone who likes novels with a Christian and western theme, excitement, romance, and plenty of adventure. (ages 15+)
