I’m not typically that into westerns. There are a few exceptions, but it’s not my usual genre of choice. Anything by Karen Witemeyer is one of the exceptions though!
Stone was hired to find Charlotte and bring back the little girl that he’s been told she kidnapped. Then Charlotte shows him proof that she’s the little girl’s legal guardian. That leaves Stone trying to sort out the truth of the matter and unravel the mystery of why the girl’s grandfather lied to him in the first place. A Worthy Pursuit has all of this and a healthy dose of adventure, mystery, humor, and even a bit of romance.
What I love the most about Karen’s books is that the characters are always unique and interesting. That holds true for A Worthy Pursuit as well. Charlotte’s backstory in particular struck a chord with me. I had to laugh when Stone discovered, to his great dismay, that a series of dime novels was based on his own exploits! And I absolutely fell in love with the children who are in Charlotte’s care.
Honestly, there’s not a thing I would change about A Worthy Pursuit. The story kept me interested and entertained the whole way through. Fans of western historical fiction will definitely enjoy this book, but even if it’s not the type of book you’d usually pick up, you still may want to give Karen’s book at try! The fabulous thing about her books is that they are clean reads, and I wouldn’t hesitate to hand one to a teen.
A Worthy Pursuit was such a fun read, and as much as I’ve enjoyed all of Karen’s books so far, she’s one author who’s books are on my must-read list!
