Short-Straw Bride

Author: Karen Witemeyer

Genre: Adventure, romance

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9.5

Type: Fiction

Number of pages: I read it via Kindle.

Time period: 1800s

My overall opinion: I think I can definitely say that Karen Witemeyer is a favorite author of mine! You may remember that I read Head in the Clouds some time ago and simply loved it. This was the next book that I read, and I hoped it would be as good, but wasn’t sure since I’d been younger then. It did not disappoint. The story was super sweet and absolutely impossible to put down. There wasn’t as much humor as HC (though it is true I read HC back in 2011, so my memory may be failing). But one big thing in its favor? The cover. The characters are EXACTLY like they should be. They look JUST like they sound in the book. It’s not often one finds a cover that matches the book as perfectly as this one matches its book!

Gah, I'm dying to read this one. It's been on my shelf for a month now. Maybe I'll get to it before the end of Feb... :D

I really loved this book, too. And you're right: I thought the same thing. The models on the cover match the characters SO well! :)

I read this one about a month ago (my days are starting to run together) and liked it. You are right, the characters do match up perfectly with the cover!

Rosie, you simply must read it! As you see, I gave it a it's a favorite of mine. :)

Hayden, Jennifer, glad to see y'all agree about the cover! I was pretty impressed -- you don't come across that perfect match nearly often enough. :)
