Book Review: A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer


The Synopsis:

Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan’s Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the little girl entrusted to her care after her mother’s death. Charlotte promised Lily’s mother she’d keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When the teacher he’s after produces documentation that shows she’s the little girl’s legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he’s been led to believe. Is Miss Atherton villain or victim? She acts more like a loving mother than an abductress, and the children in her care clearly adore her. Should Stone break his perfect record?

Then a new danger threatens, and Charlotte is forced to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone becomes determined to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he’s ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte’s heart.

My Review: 

Having quickly fallen in love with Karen Witemeyer’s previous books, I was extremely excited when I was able to read and review this book. A Worthy Pursuit is a fun, light read read that definitely has romance down! Though there is a little tension here and there throughout the story, it’s mainly a romance novel with charming characters and a mushy storyline (I mean look at that cover?!)! Like Stealing the Preacher, I found the story to be just a tad on the cheesy side, however I still enjoyed reading the book as a fun summer read. So I rate A Worthy Pursuit 4 out of 5 stars and encourage you to read this book if you want a fun historical romance:-)

Thanks for stopping by!
