    Will She Out-Run the Bounty Hunter?

    I absolutely adored this book! I was not ready for it to end! I read all of Karen's books and hesitate to choose a favorite because I love all of them for different reasons but so far this one IS my favorite! Each character was fantastic for different reasons. I especially love books with children and this book has plenty of them! Young Lily is the main focus of the book and she is such a firecracker! I enjoyed everything about her, especially her youthful exuberance! She was delightful! The main character, Charlotte, was the headmistress of a private school that got closed and I loved how she snuck 3 kids out of the school in the dead of night to "rescue" them from fates that would be detrimental to each one. That took a lot of guts and she continued to stand up for them and fight for them through all of their adventures in the book. We discover in the book that she had a childhood which caused her to want to stand up for children and be their advocate. She'd been terribly hurt by those close to her so she wanted to be there for those children. When Stone Hammond, a bounty hunter/retriever, comes along to take Lily from her to return her to her unscrupulous grandfather, Charlotte will not let that happen! Stone is world-weary and a loner but he can immediately see how much the children love Charlotte. After he discovers the truth about Lily, he doesn't waver in his allegiance to Charlotte & the children! I loved the relationship between Charlotte and Stone. Stone was so up front about his feeling for her and she didn't know what to do about that! It was great! There was great action & adventures to keep the story flowing and the pages turning. I didn't get a lot of sleep or a lot done at my house while I was reading this book! The ending was very satisfying and enjoyable. *** I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.

    Her Best Yet

    A Worthy Pursuit was one of the few books by Karen Witemeyer that I had not read, until now of course. She has been one of my favorite authors ever since I read Stealing the Preacher a few years ago, and I have been unable to put any of her novels down after picking them up. With her witty dialogue and swoon-worthy heroes, Karen crafts historical stories that will draw you in and leave you melting in a little puddle, and A Worthy Pursuit is no exception. Let me introduce you to Stone Hammond. A former Texas Ranger turned successful tracker (though I like to say retriever, you’ll know why if you read the book), Stone appears at first to Charlotte as the strong, burly, intimidating—albeit handsome—man that he is. On the inside though, is another story. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Stone is a good, Christian man with a soft heart that quickly grows to love Charlotte’s charges who vows to protect them, and their teacher, with everything in him. How can you not fall for a hero like that? Now, Charlotte may not be a dashing Texas cowboy, but she is important too. Still reeling from the rejection of her father and a former suitor, she hides herself behind a mask she has let no one—not even her young charges—penetrate. When Stone comes looking for Lily, she coolly proves to him she’s Lily’s legal guardian, despite the fear that rages inside. Slowly, though, she begins to trust their rugged hero, especially as he proves he would do anything for her and her students. But, there is a big difference between trusting him with their lives and giving him her heart. Will she ever surrender to his very worthy pursuit? If you are not jumping out of your seat determined to pick up A Worthy Pursuit this very minute—or at least very soon—then I have done a sorry job describing it. Believe me, this novel deserves double the five bookshelves I am giving it, but my scale doesn’t go that high. I cannot describe to you in words how amazing this novel was, not just because of its melted-me-into-a-puddle love story. Although that (obviously) played a really big part. The suspense playing into Lily’s situation gave this book exactly what it needed, and the little details made it all the more enjoyable. A Worthy Pursuit is a novel fully worthy (see what I did there?) of all the praise I could ever give it, and the assurance that I know I will read it again and again. If you pick up this book, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

    Good read

    Easy reading novel. Well written and engaging. Like all romance novels, all too neat, but a simple story told well.
