About Stealing the Preacher:A cowboy who wants to be a preacher. An outlaw’s daughter who wants to change his mind.
On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can’t believe it when he’s forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man’s daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He’s determined to escape-which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request.For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett he ended up right where he was supposed to be?

With her signature blend of humor, history, and lively western romance, two-time RITA Award finalist and bestselling author Karen Witemeyer delivers a Texas love story sure to steal your heart.

Looking for a new preacher? Why not hold up a train and steal him at gunpoint? Karen Witemeyer gives us and interesting, enjoyable, witty, funny story that will sure be the height of your entertainment this summer in Stealing the Preacher. Joanna’s outlaw father was willing to do anything to give her what she wants, including holding up a train and stealing Crockett Archer. Only Crockett  can’t stay in the little Texas Community of Piney Woods because he’s on a mission someplace else as a preacher candidate. But as he gets to know the people in Piney Woods, he’s drawn to the need for someone to take over the little church that hasn’t had a preacher for quite a while. But what about this other church, the one who is waiting on his arrival to vote on whether or not they want him as their own preacher. Well, its all unfolded between the pages of the wonderful book!
First of all, I LOVE this cover. I am so glad Bethany House decided to change it! And Karen Witemeyer is at it again with her awesome, humorous writing style. As I read Stealing the Preacher, I fell in love with the people of Piney Woods, and was really hoping that Crockett would decide to change his mind and be their new preacher, especially since he was so different from most preachers, and he identified with these people so well. With all of the twists and turns, and the adorable, unique characters, why not come on board with the rest of us and enjoy this wonderful summer, and well really, anytime read from Ms. Whitemeyer and Bethany House. You will sure be happy you decided to try this one. And while you are at it, check out the other books by Karen Witemeyer. I’ve read all of Karen’s books, and each one gets better and better! She is definitely high on my favorite authors list!
