Well Joanna is living out in the Piney Woods of Texas. What a beautiful setting as I adore visiting the forest there. But I do have to say when it gets dark, it really gets DARK! Joanna has been praying for a preacher to come and help in the church that has died. Oh my, when a preacher is 'detained', Joanna is so happy that things are going to go her way.
I wish to thank the Litfuse Chicks for sending this one my way. It is great to have a book that takes place right here in my home state no matter what time period it takes place in. Karen Witemeyer has her own special knack of writing that makes you laugh and surely clutch your heart too.
About Stealing the Preacher:
A cowboy who wants to be a preacher. An outlaw's daughter who wants to change his mind.
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 a 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 elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett he ended up right where he was supposed to be?
