A Tailor-Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer (a book review)


“J.T.” Tucker wants nothing to do with Coventry, Texas’s new dressmaker. He’s all too familiar with her kind–shallow women
more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothing, this seamstress is not at all what he expected.
Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff
manner while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man?
When Hannah decides to help Jericho’s sister catch a beau–leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town–will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?

Holy moly, great Texan guacamole. (Yes, I just said that.) This book was just so wonderful!
I went into the story thinking it was just going to be another Hallmark storyline, you know, romance but no Godly foundation. I was wrong! This book had amazingly crafted characters and perfectly plotted scenes. Every single moment of this book was enjoyable and I could barely put it down to do my chores. (oops.) Jericho and Hannah both had their faults, pasts that needed to be left behind, and there was a lot of development in their personalities!

I also really adored the seamstress aspect of the story. I enjoyed reading about the fabrics and her customers and that lifestyle. It was cool. :-)

I loved Hannah’s character! She was determined and hard-headed, which was really good for starting her business.

And Jericho. Agh! He was so cool! He did have a tough past and I hurt for him when he struggled with flashbacks.

The minor characters were perfect too! Cordelia, Ezra, Tom, Lousia, Tessa, they all blended together really well and the setting was painted very descriptive but not boring.

This book was really clean! I can’t wait to read other books by Karen Witemeyer!
