A Tailor Made Bride

By Karen WiteMeyer

Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko

When a dressmaker who is smart, values beauty and has  an eye on starting her own business is handed a gift  that can fulfill her dreams, she is elated!  What else could go wrong?

Her welcome to the new town is by someone who has reason to bear a grudge, through no fault of her own. He  is too familiar with swallow women who seek only to indulge in  fashion, instead of true beauty, or so  he thinks. His whole has been effected by what he thinks dressmaking, ribbons and the like took from him and all joy has been taken from his life.

Hannah Richards tests those things he thought was true and by her winning smiles and kindness to others, puzzles him and  makes him dig deeper into what he thought was true. Can Jericho Tucker find joy again?

This sweet, somewhat predictable  love story, between these two characters was a fun read.  This new  author was someone I would for sure pick up again.  Hannah was a  fun character, smart and witty, which I found refreshing. She was not so stubborn, she was frustrating, but was genuinely sweet and warm hearted. She worked hard to help others, promote her business and did not really think about romance all the time. J.T. fights his feelings  when he meets her, and is gruff, stern and  even rude…..you start to just want to shake him to make him loosen up a bit and Hannah does a good job of it.

I was a bit frustrated by the many references to curves and moist pink lips and could have done without them, but mostly this was a pleasant historical fiction book.

You can buy this book from many book sellers, it retails for $14.99 and may be cheaper from other place like Amazon or Christianbook.com.

This book was provided for review from Bethany House Publishers.
