A rising star in Christian fiction, Karen Witemeyer brilliantly blends humor and romance in this compelling debut novel.
Texas liveryman Jericho “J.T.” Tucker wants nothing to do with the town’s new dressmaker, Hannah Richardson. He’s all too familiar with her kind - shallow, more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Except for her well-tailored clothing, however, she’s not at all what he expected. Although J.T.’s assumptions and gruff manner rile Hannah, she finds her heart strangely stirred by him - and by his unexpected acts of kindness.

I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.
I never read the print version, so I don't know. I don't really think one would be better than the other though.
The whole section when J.T. goes out to search for Hannah in the storm, and the little bit afterwards. It's incredibly romantic and sweet. Very touching.
The laughter and fun that you might just skip over when reading. You can see the smirks and smiles as she's reading.
It's a great title, honestly, and I can't think of anything to change it too... Maybe A Tailor-Made Romance, instead of Bride.
I'm really glad I took the chance on this one. I've now discovered a new Christian author that I have come to enjoy. After listening to this book, I bought her other two, and I'm incredibly happy to have done so. This being Karen Witemeyer's first book, you can really see how she's growing in her writing. Head in the Clouds was great, as was To Win Her Heart.
The thing I love most about her books is that the relationships are real. The main characters don't beat around the bush or let little petty misunderstandings get in the way of things. Sure there are things to work through, but it's incredibly sweet. I highly recommend A Tailor-Made Bride. :)
...for storytelling, and I hope that Audible will feature all of her books.
Set in the old American West, A TAILOR-MADE BRIDE is quite a cute story and one wonders how our heroine, feisty, high spirited, Hanna Richards, an Artistic Dressmaker is going to overcome the abrupt and brusque manner of one Jericho ???JT??? Tucker. Owner of the local livery.
Sparks fly and feelings get hurt, but...
Love does conquer all, even a stinking old widower falls under the loving kindness of Hanna.
Lots of adventures in this story, one you will want to add to your inspirational library.
I really enjoy these wonderful books.
You won't have to fast forward because of graphic sex or violence. A pure listening joy.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining. I will listen to more of her books. Jennifer
This is the second story by the author, Karen W, that I have listened to, and I have enjoyed them both. Though the storyline is a bit predictable, the characters are interesting and there are just enough turns to keep it interesting. I needed a break from my usual murder mystery/suspense genre for something more wholesome and relaxing--and Karen W gave me just what I needed. I recommend her.
I have always loved to read...but I often find it hard to find the time to sit down with a book. I started listening to audio books not too long ago, and I am hooked! It is hard to limit my listening to just during my comute to and from work! It has become a guilty pleasure of mine! I love just about every type of book, however I am a hopeless romantic to the core! :)
Yes...I like her books. They are good christian stories and makes me think of Little House on the Prairie or the Love Comes Softly series.
Yes...I listened to To Win Her Heart. Although I liked this one, I enjoyed that one even more. While the characters are good in this book, they aren't as deep as the ones in To Win Her Heart.
I would have to say when J.T. saves Hannah...you can tell that after that things change so much between the two of them...call it the hopeless romantic in me...but I loved it!
I don't know that it inspired me...but it really brought out the point that you can't judge a book by it's cover or in this case, people. :)
Overall it was a good story...worth a listen.
