Witemeyer does it again with a skillful blend of history, danger and romance.
NO OTHER WILL DO is about a women’s colony founded by Emma Chandler to give a fresh start to women and their children in need (much like our modern day women’s shelter, but imagine a completely self-sufficient town). Unfortunately, in the days of the “Old West” mentality, men didn’t take kindly to this settlement where no men were allowed, and deemed it unnatural for so many women to live in this community together, doing “man’s work” to support their own existence. Insert conflict. Someone wants the land, and is willing to destroy the town and it’s inhabitants to drive them out. Emma sends for help from her childhood friend, Malachi Shaw. He rushes to their aid, but neither of them are prepared for the attraction they have for one another. Amidst the danger of saving the colony from the bad guys, those feelings blossom into a wonderful romance.
I have to say that Karen WItemeyer is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors in Historical Romance. I even forget that these stories are classified under the Inspirational or Christian Fiction label, as the stories are just so good that I can’t stop turning pages to see what happens next. With the perfect blend of history, suspense, and sweet romance, Witemeyer weaves an action-packed story with well-developed and completely lovable characters. Even the secondary characters, such as the suffragette aunts are wonderful and memorable.
I highly recommend NO OTHER WILL DO to fans of historical romances set in the West and even those who like a little more suspense and action. There is a little bit of everything for you in this book.
