Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer ~ Review ~ Loved this book!

Short-Straw Bride
My Review: An entertaining book, with an abundance sweet romantic tension!

Meredith Hayes has loved Travis Archer since he rescued her as a child from a ruthless steel trap. Now, a few years later when Meredith overhears a plan to burn the  reclusive Archer brothers off of their property, she knows that she has to warn them. But what starts out as an act of goodwill quickly escalates to a sticky situation where the Archers are drawing straws to see who will marry her. Can a marriage of what seems to be of convenience become a marriage of love?

Where to start? First of all I loved this book, from the first page to the last. Filled with humor, and an atmosphere that hums with sweet romantic tension, Short-Straw Bride swept me off my feet and off to another place.

The characters were fantastic, I loved how each of the characters had their own little quirk, that made them not only memorable, but highly unique and engaging. Travis was a terrific, very masculine hero, who had a few problems translating what he was thinking in his head to what he said or did, making for a few misunderstandings. Meri, was a lovable leading lady, feisty, and full of fire and determination. And I absolutely loved the way that Travis and Meri interacted, with respect, hope, wit, passion, and love.

The pages of this book turned so smoothly, and I was so absorbed in the story that I didn't notice how far I'd gotten in the book until to my horror, I found that it was almost over! I am definitely excited to find out what Ms. Witemeyer next book will be about! Short-Straw Bride a wonderful book that you won't want to miss!

Thank you so much to Ms. Witemeyer who graciously gave me a copy of Short-Straw Bride for this review :)
