A Tailor-Made Bride GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. Winner has been contacted via email.


by Karen Witemeyer

-information taken from BethanyHouse.com
When a dressmaker who values beauty tangles with a liveryman who condemns vanity, the sparks begin to fly!
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? 
Karen Witemeyer holds a master's degree in psychology from Abilene Christian University and is a member of ACFW, RWA, and the Abilene Writers Guild. She has published fiction in Focus on the Family's children's magazine, and has written several articles for online publications and anthologies. A Tailor-Made Bride is her first novel. Karen lives in Abilene, Texas, with her husband and three children.Visit Karen's Web site at www.karenwitemeyer.com

MY REVIEW

I really enjoyed this book! I was drawn right into the story from page one. I got a kick out of the characters and thought Witemeyer did an excellent job transporting me into a whole other place and time. This book was an excellent debut novel and I hope to read more of Witemeyer's work. If you enjoy historical Christian fiction than A Tailor-Made Bride is the perfect novel for you.

Thanks so much to Bethany House for sending me a review copy of this book.

I am a semi-regular reader of Christian fiction. If I'm going to read fiction, that's probably what I'd choose; but normally (or lately) I've been reading non-fiction.

I usually don't. read Christian historical fiction. I have read some other historical fiction before though, but not Christian.

The cover of this book is so pretty! I do judge books by cover which is supposedly bad but... haha.
