Product Description

Jericho "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?

Publisher's Description

Jericho "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?

Author Bio

Karen Witemeyer holds a master’s degree in psychology from Abilene Christian University and is a member of ACFW, RWA and the Texas Coalition of Authors. She has published fiction in Focus on the Family’s children’s magazine, and has written several articles for online publications and anthologies. This is her first novel. Karen lives in Abilene, Texas, with her husband and three children.

Publisher's Weekly

Witemeyer’s debut will grab fans in the historical romance crowd. She blends lively writing, storytelling prowess, and enough romance to keep readers satisfied. Hannah Richards opens her dress shop in 1881 Coventry, Tex., with little more than a dream to help women add beauty to their lives. Livery owner Jericho Tucker, however, finds nothing beautiful in her plans. Despite J.T’s antagonism and Hannah’s strong will, the pair find ways to meet in the middle and come out together. Sidelights include matchmaking on Hannah’s part, a sinister rival, dangerous floodwaters, and two people who truly desire to follow Christ. Readers will ponder, with J.T. and Hannah, the difference between beauty and vanity: “You may see a room full of harmless fashions, but if you open your eyes, you’ll find that, in truth, it is filled with the temptations to indulge in sinful vanity,” he says. “If God had wanted the world to be a somber, colorless place, he would have made everything in black and gray,” she says. Thought-provoking and entertaining faith-based fiction for sure. (June)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    I don't typically read romantic books, but I couldn't put this book down. It was recommended to me by a friend. It was such a sweet story about love and redemption, while following the budding romance of two people.

    Love how two strong personalities tried to hide their feelings for each other. And how God used different situations to bring them together and I fell in love with the two main characters and really enjoyed the story and had a hard time putting the book down.

    "A Tailor-Made Bride" charmed me, not only with the details of dress-making and fashion in the Old West, but also with the pluck and inner strength of the protagonist. The livery man (of intrigue and trouble for the heroine) had to come to grips with his wrong-headedness and need for grace and redemption which added depth and truth to the story.

    Well, as I am a fan of Karen Witemeyer, (I LOVED her book, "Short-Straw Bride") I decided that this book would be worth reading, and I wasn't disappointed. Not that it was one of most thrilling and original novels out there, but still a sweet story. I consider it an evening well spent, although I don't think I'll be reading it again.

    Recommended to fans of Karen's and those who want a light, historical romance.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Karen Witemeyer
Located in: Abilene, TX
Submitted: January 28, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I believe the world needs more happily-ever-afters. That's why I write. I enjoy bringing heroic men and feisty women together on the page and in readers' hearts. And if the Lord can touch a soul in the process, my prayers will have been answered.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I have a heart for helping Christian women mature in their faith and a passion for romantic stories from times past. Writing this book gave me the chance to combine both of these loves. Besides, who could resist the opportunity to create a rugged hero whose gruff exterior hides a soft heart and an independent heroine who privately questions her life's direction? I just had to see what would happen when I threw these two strong-willed people together.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Being right is less important than living right. So many times as Christians, we see things as black and white—right and wrong. We can be quick to condemn other believers because they don't follow a doctrine identical to ours. A Tailor-Made Bride demonstrates how submissive hearts open to the Lord's leading can bridge such gaps with grace, fostering relationships and nurturing increased spiritual maturity. Such a journey is not easy, and the characters in this story reflect that struggle as they battle judgmental attitudes and endure a period of questioning that sends them on a hunt for truth beyond their black-and-white interpretations. Yet in the end, they realize they have grown spiritually and personally thanks to the challenges they have faced. Their understanding of truth has broadened and their relationships have deepened.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Every book is a spiritual journey for me. God often teaches me through my characters and their situations. I am not immune to pride or the occasional bout of dogmatism, and in writing this story, God reminded me of the need for a humble spirit and a grace-filled attitude toward others.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Some of my favorite Christian authors are Francine Rivers, Deeanne Gist, and Tamera Alexander.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I would be honored for you to visit my Web site where you can find background information on the characters from A Tailor-Made Bride as well as a free download of a biblical fiction piece and Bible study inspired by the life of Rahab.
