Book review: Short Straw Bride By Karen Witemeyer

Karen Witemeyer has done it again in her newest historical romance Short Straw Bride.

"No one steps on archer Land" Not if they Value their life.

 Meredith Hayes is infatuated with the eldest archer brother, Travis. After experiencing a childhood  accident which involves Travis rescuing her she is left to wonder and pine over her "hero".

When Meredith over hears a plot to harm the Archers, she sets out to warn the brothers.
This ends poorly for her and to save her reputation she must marry one of the brothers.

The men devise a plan to draw straws to decide which one will marry Meredith.
Meredeth is thrilled to be "forced" to marry Travis Archer.

 Unfortunately  years of seclusion and mistrust have hardened the eldest archer brother and he is no longer the "hero" Meredith thinks she remembers.
 Can they ever find true love, or will she always be viewed as the short straw bride?

This book was everything I expected and so much more. As always Karen Witemeyer's characters were spunky, lovable, realistic and so very colourful. I found the book so engaging I read half the book in one night, I just could not put it down.

The thematic twists and turns of this book keep you on your toes, and begging for more.
The only negative thing I can say about this book is that it ended. The book makes you wish for more, but I guess we will just have to watch for the next  Karen Witemeyer release!
Don't wait on this one though, run out to your local Christian book store,
you will not regret it!

This book was graciously given to me for review purposes by Bethany House (a division of Baker Publishing Group) Thank you so much Bethany House!
