To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer
Publisher: Bethany House
Goodreads Summery: 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?

At first she thought little of him but once he starts coming to her library to borrow books she soon finds her heart being borrowed as well. When she finds out his past secrets will she look past them to see the man he has become for will it keep them apart?
I was a little disappointed with this book. I read the last book she wrote and really liked it but this one I had trouble getting into maybe it was the storyline I am not sure. The author is a very good writer but I found myself at times feeling like I had to push on through to get to the end. I did like the idea of two opposites falling in love and I thought the idea of them writing letters to each other was cool. Once we got to the last few chapters I felt like it started to pick up and I enjoyed the ending. I admit had it not been a review book I might have stopped half way and not finished it but I am glad I did. I also have to add I loved the cover I found myself just staring at it and imagining the characters interacting with each other. If you have read other books from this author and liked them I am sure you will enjoy this book as well but like I said I felt the middle of this book dragged on a little.
