Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer

Stealing the Preacher is Karen Witemeyer's latest release. The cover on the right is the final cover, though the alternate is cute too. I love the pink dress that main character Joanna Robbins is wearing. 

This book was hard for me to get into at first. I think it was me though and not the story. Once I had time to sit down and do nothing but read, I fell right into it and giggled at the antics of Joanna and Crockett.

I loved the subtle and innocent flirtations between the two as they started falling for each other. So sweet.

From the back cover:
On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can't believe it when he's forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He's determined to escape-which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request.
For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling her promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him somewhere else.

Is there any way she can convince Crockett he ended up right where he was supposed to be?

With her signature blend of humor, history, and lively western romance, two-time RITA Award finalist and bestselling author Karen Witemeyer delivers a Texas love story sure to steal your heart.

This book was provided for review by Litfuse.
