Review: Short Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer

Once, long ago, Travis Archer had rescued Meredith.  Now it was her turn to rescue him and his brothers from an evil schemer who wanted their ranch.  But would she be on time?  Somehow things went wrong and now one of the Archer boys would have to marry her.  Which one?  She caught the brothers drawing straws for her….

After the rushed wedding, Meredith’s chivalrous bridegroom gave her all the space he thought she would need.  How was Meredith going to communicate she no longer needed or wanted that space?  Or was it actually he who wanted it?  And whom would the evil schemer hurt next?

Set in Texas in the 1880’s, Short Straw Bride is a light-hearted story of good versus evil, bearing each other’s burdens, and romance.  Meredith is a real heroine, beautiful, feisty, and good—except when the plot needs her to be just a little bit foolish.  Travis, a good man, is bound by a promise his father extracted on his deathbed.  The other characters are memorable each in their own way.  And God is honored throughout.

Short Straw Bride is exciting, fun, and playful.  If you want a light read this summer, this might be it.  Decide by reading an excerpt here.

Note:  Because Meredith and her husband are both longing for their marriage to be consummated, this book, though completely clean and honorable, may lead unmarried people to unhelpful thoughts.
