IF THE BOOT FITS by Karen Witemeyer, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas #NewRelease

Texas Ever After #2
(A Christian Historical Western Romance 
Fairy Tale Retelling of Cinderella)

“. . .but memories of Asher’s staunch defense and tender care had her pulse skipping more beats than a one-handed drummer.”

If the Boot Fits is the second in Karen Witemeyer’s Texas Ever After series, and it’s filled with her signature wit, humor, and inspiration. The hero and heroine are delightful and engaging, and the villain is dastardly and despicable. I loved Samantha Dearing and her spunkiness and independence, and Asher’s willingness to fight for right and protect those he loves. I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow and change as they got to know each other. The many twists and turns kept me guessing and turning pages to the end.

This tale is full of action, suspense, inspiration, and wit, with enough romance to satisfy the fussiest of readers. It illustrates perfectly why this talented author is one of my favorites.

BackCover Blurb:
One fateful night will change their destinies forever. . . .

Convinced that his stepmother and half brothers have been wrongfully evicted by cattle king Eli Dearing, Asher Ellis uses the cover of an extravagant ball to break into the Three Cedars' ranch house to search for proof. On the verge of discovery, he flees, but a boy's cry compels him to make a daring rescue.

Spunky and independent Samantha Dearing balks when she learns the ball her father is hosting is nothing more than a matrimonial ambush. Taking a break from unwanted suitors, Samantha spots a thief fleeing her home. When the stranger ends up saving her brother's life, she hides the only clue to his identity left behind--his boot--and resolves to find him herself.

When Samantha encounters the older brother of a student she tutors, all thoughts of the bootless mystery man vanish. Asher values family above wealth, a rare trait that opens her heart. Afraid she will discover his past misconduct, Asher tries to keep his distance, but when a series of suspicious accidents befall her, he vows to protect her, even though saving her life could mean losing her love.
