No Other Will Do by Karen Witemeyer

The newest novel by Karen Witemeyer No Other Will Do is an intense novel. Emma, a smart and capable woman, has created a place where women can come together, be safe, and help provide for each other at Harper’s Station. Everything is going well until an outside threat endangers everyone. To protect her friends and enterprise Emma enlists the help of Malachi, a man she knows from her past. As the trouble escalates, Emma wonder’s if even a man’s help is enough.

Witemeyer has created a unique story of women helping women. A story where the strength and ingenuity of individuals help the whole community to prosper. With strong, eccentric characters Witemeyer tells a story of strength, renewal, and hope.

I’m an avid fan of novels by Karen Witemeyer but No Other Will Do didn’t keep my interest as I expected. The plot was intense, the characters strong and believable, and the story well written, but I found myself missing the witty humor that is so quintessential in Witemeyer’s other historical novels. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of No Other Will Do by Karen Witemeyer for my candid review.

Summer House Party: Timeless Regency Collection

As the newest release in the Timeless Regency Collection, the novellas in a Summer House Party are a well written and entertaining of tales about expectations, love unrequited, and love found. Taking readers back to the Regency period in England, readers explore three very unique house parties from that time period.

Kitty, an orphan living with relatives discovers an unlikely suitor in her attempts to chaperon younger cousins.
