A Giveaway! Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer


     I have not had a giveaway in quite a while and after reading this book I knew it was time for another one. This is a giveaway by me. The winner will have the choice of either a paperback copy or a Kindle copy.

     Short-Straw Bride is wonderfully written. It has humor, romance, suspense all wrapped up in a great book! You can read my review tomorrow when I post it! I have read two other books by author Karen Witemeyer but this one is my new favorite from her.

A little about Karen, from her website.


Karen Witemeyer is a deacon’s wife and mother of three who believes the world needs more happily-ever-afters. To that end, she combines her love of bygone eras with her passion for helping women mature in Christ to craft historical romance novels that lift the spirit and nurture the soul.

After growing up in California, Karen moved to Texas to attend Abilene Christian University where she earned bachelor and master’s degrees in Psychology. It was also there that she met and married her own Texas hero. He roped her in good, for she has lived in Texas ever since. In fact, she fell so in love with this rugged land of sweeping sunsets and enduring pioneer spirit, that she incorporates it into the pages of her novels, setting her stories in the small towns of a state that burgeoned into greatness in the mid- to late1800s.

Karen is living her dream by writing Christian historical romance novels for Bethany House. When she visited her publisher back in January of 2010, she was interviewed by the staff. If you’d like a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how she develops her story ideas and a description of her bumpy journey to publication, click here to listen to a podcast of that interview.

    FYI- some of the links on the Rafflecopter don’t work because the “:” is left out of the “http://” of the URLs. I manually entered it in several of the links so I was still able to follow you.
