Book Review: A Worthy Pursuit

Cover Art

From the Back:

A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear?

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim?

Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart.

My Reflections:

I absolutely love every book penned by Karen Witemeyer, and her newest book A Worthy Pursuit is no exception. Her books tend to fly by and I often find myself wishing her books would last just a little longer.

This story starts with Charlotte Atherton, sneaking out in the wee hours of the morning with three of her pupils. Charlotte eager to protect and care for her little charges will stop at nothing to fulfill her duties. Now that the school has been closed, she feels she has no other choice to do anything but flee. Charlotte fondly called Miss Lottie forges a family tied together by need and love She will stop at nothing to protect them, even if it means to deny the tug of her heart, and harden her self to a certain tracker who is known to always get what he wants.

Stone Hammond is hired by his wealthy boss to find and retrieve his Granddaughter who he believes has been abducted. Stone must come to the bottom of the story and decide for himself the truth of the matter. First however he has to track Charlotte down and keep them all safe long enough to determine just who is telling the truth. Problem is the more time that goes by the more confused Stone becomes.

Witemeyer does a splendid job of weaving this story together from the cast of characters to the well thought out story line, you will not regret being hooked into this book, in fact I am sure you will be quite disappointed when you come to the last page, I know I was!
