To Win Her Heart...Review

About the book:
Having completed his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father's knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past. But small towns leave little room for secrets...

Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she steels herself against the attraction he provokes. His halting speech and hesitant manner leave her doubting his intelligence. Yet as the mysteries of the town's new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart.

Levi's renewed commitment to his faith leads Eden to believe she's finally found a man of honor and integrity, a man worthy of her love. But when the truth about his prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian's affections?

Levi wants a new start and Eden wants to run the library in her hometown and avoid the amorous sheriff who seems to have a claim on her.  Neither is looking for love, but they find kindred spirits in each other and discover a mutual love of literature.  Levi wants to keep his secrets and when the time comes to reveal his past to Eden, he worries that she won't love and accept him.

This is another entertaining story from Karen Witemeyer.  Eden and Levi are great characters. The supporting cast is fantastic too with Chloe and Duncan and others.  Sheriff Pratt is appropriately villainous.  I love the literary references and the fact that the heroine is a librarian.

Like Head in the Clouds  the story is light, but not light-hearted.  The plot covers some serious subjects without being preachy at all.  These characters go to church, believe in God and allow Him to work in their lives and on their hearts.

While I think Head in the Clouds is my favorite Witemeyer book, this one comes a close second.  A delightful read and one that is easily recommended.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow.  You can purchase your own copy here.

Read 6/11
