My review:

I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet and tender romance with a character I'd gotten to know previously in Short-Straw Bride. I'll admit, I adore the Archer boys, so I was excited about reading this book. It wasn't quite as enthralling as the last story, but it was spiritually deep and brought tears to my eyes toward the end. That mess with Holly had me holding my breath, too.

The story was filled with themes of doing the right thing and the importance of being honest in every way. A little deception is still deception, and coming clean before God and man is good for the soul. I also liked the emphasis on the power of prayer and listening to God's voice in your heart. Those are all decent lessons for any good story. The author just made them more fun because of her lovable characters.

Stealing the Preacher's core themes were the importance of listening to God, being patient, and being willing to allow God to direct your steps. I appreciated the spiritual aspects of the story most of all. But I also adored Crockett as the hero and the love he felt for Joanna because of her caring heart and her desire to serve others. He treasured that more than just her pretty face. I thought that was a wonderful theme as well.

I believe this story illustrates very well how good men want someone who will be partner for life in all ways, and that woman needs to be someone they admire. That's an admirable message for aspiring young single ladies who want to win a good man's devotion. Flirtation and temptation are not the ways to accomplish that end. Very well done.
