Short-straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer

Karen Witemeyer knows how to tell a story. Yet again, she pulled me in from page one and didn’t let go until I closed the back cover. Short-Straw Bride is a fun and romantic tale reminiscent of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in which Meredith and Travis find their way to understanding what it truly means to love.

Interestingly enough, Short-Straw Bride begins with a prologue, which I usually don’t care for. But this one really worked for me. In fact, when I finally let myself read the prologue last week, even knowing I wouldn’t have the time I needed to continue the story, (Karen is one of those authors I have to allow myself a whole free day before I open her books.) it was torture to wait until Sunday to open it again and see how it all turned out! And yet it was such a pleasure when I finally did.
