“A Tailor-Made Bride” by Karen Witemeyer

I thought this book was good.  It’s the author’s (Karen Witemeyer) debut, and I thought it was very nicely written.  Hannah has been working for most of her life, but she has been saving her extra money in the hopes of someday opening her own dress shop.  Thanks to an elderly customer, her dream has come true, but there’s a catch.  She has to move to a town that she knows nothing about and live in a building she has never seen.

Jericho has had his eye on a shop in town as an investment property/way to help out someone in need.  When Hannah arrives to take possession of the shop, he is stunned…this is not going the way it’s supposed to go…and Hannah won’t sell her shop to him.  He doesn’t think that the women of his town need to have a fancy dressmaker in town.  It will create dissatisfaction with their lives and cause all sorts of other problems.

However, his kid sister and Hannah strike up a honest and quick friendship.  Both sees in the other something of value and someone who needs some help.  Hannah also becomes popular with the community in general for her unassuming, friendly ways.  She is able to kindly take under her wing and they become friends.

Unfortunately, there is someone in town that doesn’t like rejection or change and goes out of their way to sabotage Hannah and her shop.  Hannah and Jericho have to work beyond their own doubts about each other and figure out who it can be that wants to harm Hannah.

  1. Hi, Jennifer. Thanks for your wonderful review of A Tailor-Made Bride. I’m so glad you enjoyed Hannah and Jericho’s story. If you’re interdested, I have an epilogue posted on my website. I love lingering over the happily ever after in books, and if you do, too, you might enjoy this short post script to their tale. You can find the link to the epilogue on the Books page of my site under Bonus Material. (www[dot]karenwitemeyer[dot]com)

    Have a wonderful 2012!

    • Thank you for your kind comments. The epilogue was beautiful. I love reading them, especially when I have become completely engrossed in a story. I hate leaving characters behind. I’m always wondering what they do after the story ends. Thank you for stopping by!
