Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer
Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer was a fun read. Even though you can pretty well predict the outcome of the story in the first chapter, there are still enough twists and turns to keep you interested. Good job, Karen!
Joanna Robbins, the daughter of a former outlaw, was taught about God by her now deceased mother. And she began praying for a preacher to come to her now defunct church all in the hopes of having help in winning her dad to the Lord. In a weird turn of events, her father helped answer that prayer. He knew that she was hoping for a preacher (without knowing why) and delivered a preacher to her for her birthday--by holding up a train and bringing Crockett Archer tied up in ropes. Crockett was on his way to a church as a candidate as parson--but he didn't quite make it there in time. He managed to escape the Robbins'ranch, but Joanna and her strong faith were on his mind.
I'd give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
