The second oldest of four brothers, Crockett Archer, was a preacher on a mission to spread God's word. Little did he know that God's plans weren't that simple. On his way to a job he knew was meant for him, he finds himself in a heap of trouble.

In a series of odd circumstances, or through divine interference, he meets the young Joanna Robbins, daughter of Silas. Silas a hard working, dedicated, family man that is all mush when it comes to his daughter. A man that doesn't like preachers, especially any that she may have eyes for.

What I LOVED about this book...
Silas Robbins is a hoot! He had me laughing throughout the entire book. I absolutely loved him; he is my favorite character in this book.

***Possible SPOILER ALERT**** - I loved the romantic tension between Crockett and Jo. I was screaming at my book, "Just kiss already!" I love romances that tease a little. Made me want to root that much more for them. When he kissed her the first time after finding her crying, I was hooked on *** END OF SPOILER

What I LIKED about the book...
I liked how Silas confessed to his crimes. The author, Karen Witemeyer, could have just let that slide and not made a fuss over it. I liked the integrity she brought to the novel. I didn't see how it would work out, but I liked how she managed to make it believable and not so over the top. ***END OF SPOILER***

I hope her next book includes younger brother Neil. Karen Witemeyer seemed to tease her readers with him and I hope that is a sample of what is to come.

This is my favorite read of 2013, so far.
