To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer



Having completed his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father's knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past. But small towns leave little room for secrets...

Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she steels herself against the attraction he provokes. His halting speech and hesitant manner leave her doubting his intelligence. Yet as the mysteries of the town's new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart.

Levi's renewed commitment to his faith leads Eden to believe she's finally found a man of honor and integrity, a man worthy of her love. But when the truth about his prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian's affections?

My Opinion:

I really enjoyed reading this book! I loved the way the characters pasts play a role in their future decisions. Levi's past has put him in some bad situations, but through them he is blessed with an undying faith for the God he serves. Eden's past hurts have made it so she has a distrust in men.

I like the way Levi tells Eden about his past when they start to build a relationship and how it tests Eden's trust issues. However, I don't like how she's only mad at him for a few days. To me it's only a couple of chapters and then they are back together, so there wasn't much of a conflict there. But their is another conflict in the book that helps make up for it.

This book was a fast/enjoyable read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading christian romance. I would also recommend A Tailor Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer. It is another book by the same author that I read before starting this blog.

Rating out of 1-5 stars (5 being the best): 5

A Tailor Made Bride


Jericho "J.T." Tucker wants nothing to do with Coventry, Texas's new dressmaker. He's all too familiar with her kind--shallow women
more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothing, this seamstress is not at all what he expected.
Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff
manner while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man?
When Hannah decides to help Jericho's sister catch a beau--leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town--will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?
