Short Straws Mark a Winner
Karen Witemeyer has hit a home run with her new book, Short Straw Bride. I have loved every single one of her books and this one does not disappoint. I loved Meredith and Travis and the way their love story began when Meri was still a school girl. Meri seemed to have a habit of needing to be rescued and Travis had the habit of being her rescuer. But one day, Meri rescued Travis by warning him of a plot to burn his place down. Travis lived on the family ranch with his three brothers and allowed no one on the ranch except for a select few. Meri was not one of them, but when she heard the plot she had to let him know. This led to a series of events that culminated in her needing to be rescued by Travis once again. I read this book in two sittings (lyings?--I read in bed, but you know what I mean) and stayed up quite late to finish it off. Compelling, entertaining, and well worth the time of a Western Romance lover! Five Stars!
