A review: Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer
This is the first book I've ever read by Karen Witemeyer. In fact, I hadn't even heard of her until her name and book showed up on an opportunity to review the book for Bethany House and I'm so glad it did.
It has been a long time since a Christian historical romance novel has kept me up way past my bedtime but I just couldn't put this book down until I finished reading it because it was so good!
Short-Straw Bride is a typical Christian historical romance novel in the sense that it is pretty predictable but I think that is what I love the most about these types of books. I want to enjoy myself getting lost in a cute, loving, predictable, fun book with characters that are full of life and spunk and love. This book provided exactly that! Meredith is my favorite type of character because she isn't a little prissy girl who can't get dirty or work hard. She doesn't sit idly by and she isn't the type to stay out of trouble either and I love that about her! Travis is your typical gallant, chivalrous man and I love that about him.
This book had wonderful characters, wonderful relationships, and was a very enjoyable read all the way around. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Christian historical romances!
Bethany House provided me with a complimentary copy of
this book in exchange for my honest review.
