"Short-Straw Bride"

Through a series of rather painful-and embarrassing- events, Meredith finds herself walking down the aisle towards her childhood hero, rancher Travis Archer. Despite marrying the man of her dreams, it is decidedly not her dream wedding! With her uncle forcing the wedding to a man she hasn't seen in twelve years,  and men trying to take the Archer land by force, it's certainly an awkward time, to say the least. After the vows are said, Travis battles his distrust of the world, while Meri is sure she falls after his land and brothers on his list of priorities. Will Travis and Meredith be able to put their faith in God, and each other, to find the love they each crave?

I loved this book by one of my new favorite authors! I may have teared up once....or twice...or half a dozen times...anyways...There was so much drama in this book! And so many different kinds of drama: physical danger, spiritual loss, emotions on the brink, relational uncertainty...in short, all the makings of a great book. Even though it was on the long side (page-wise, to some people, anyways), I didn't find it dragging or boring at any points. I loved getting to know these characters and I sincerely hope we'll get to see the other Archer boys find love, too! 

Check out this trailer for the book to get you even more excited! 

Highly Recommended for fans of historical fiction! 
4/5 Stars
