I love Karen Witemeyer’s books. Have I mentioned that before? I love them so much that I have already pre-ordered her next book, Short-Straw Bride, which comes out June 1. I have an advent calendar that I am using to help me count-down the days until it arrives at my doorstep! Well, maybe not literally, but in my mind anyway! Head in the Clouds is a simply marvelous novel.
Book rating: Up All Night’er
Adelaide is a sweet, adorable, petite girl who has recently made a humiliating discovery. She is looking to escape her past by working as a governess at a remote sheep ranch in Texas. There she finds a dashing transplant from England named Gideon. He's got it all--looks, charm and that wonderful English accent! Swoon!! She is hired to work for him by caring for his daughter, Isabella, who hasn’t spoken a word since her mother died.
This book has a great villain and lots of fun excitement. The spiritual message made such a difference in my life. I loved how easily Adelaide seemed to communicate with God and I really felt like I wanted and needed to be more like that.
Gideon is very intrigued by Adelaide’s sweetness and fun-loving nature. She, in turn, cannot escape his charm. As their relationship heats up, so does the danger posed by Isabella's money-hungry uncle.
I loved this book on so many levels. It was the perfect blend of romance, excitement, and just pure fun. A great any-time read!
