A Worthy Pursuit, By Karen Witemeyer-Book Review


"A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear?
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 orphaned girl entrusted to her care. 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 Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim? 
Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart."

Karen Witemeyer did a great job weaving together this story-from the start this book is held my attention; I was hooked from the first page. 
The characters were really well written and thought out (both the main and side characters- there weren't any dumb characters brought in to just add pages to the book). I enjoyed Charlotte's character and her desire to care for and protect the children no matter the cost. I also enjoyed the details given to the children in the book-all realistic and charming.
A sweet romance, with amusing comedy mixed in. A beautiful quick read, it'll have you longing for more. All in all, A Worthy Pursuit is worthy of your time.

I received this book from the publishers in exchange for and honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
