no other will do


A Ladies of Harper Station Novel

She Trusts Him for the Job,
But Can She Trust Him With Her Heart?

Men are optional. That was the credo Emma Chandler’s suffragette aunts taught her and why she established Harper’s Station, a women’s colony that offers a fresh start to females in need. But when a dangerous and shadowy assailant tries repeatedly to drive the women out, Emma is forced to admit they might need a man after all. One who can fight. And there is only one man she trusts enough to ask.

Malachi Shaw has finally earned the respect he’s always craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma’s telegram arrives, he rushes back to Texas to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she’s not a girl any longer. She’s a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn’t deserve.

As the danger intensifies, Emma, Mal, and the ladies of Harper’s Station must choose safety or whether to risk everything to fight for their future.

My Thoughts and Review:

I am continually impressed with Karen’s books. She does a wonderful job with every book she writes. This newest one holds true to that.

I will be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about all this not needing a man stuff that our heroine believes in (not that I think we should be overly dependent on men, but I don’t totally agree with the where feminism as taken us). But Karen managed to write about it without it being offending. And Emma obviously isn’t opposed to needing Malachi.

There attraction is so sweet and Malachi completely respects Emma and loves her for who she is.

I loved seeing Emma seeking God’s will and even questioning if she chose the right path in life. We often feel this way when we come against obstacles.

There are many wonderful characters introduced in this book and it sounds like this is the start to new series, so I am very excited to visit Harper Station again.

Visit Karen here.

    I’ve read all of Karen’s prior books and liked them very much so I want to read No Other Will Do. It has an interesting setting, a women’s colony. It seems to show that no matter how independent we want to be, sometimes we need others. We always need God. Thanks for your review and the chance to win this book.

    Usually, Western romances aren’t my favorite, but I really love Karen’s books! She has just the right mix of romance, inspiration, and some danger for good measure!

  7. Rachael Merritt Says:

    I love reading Karen’s books! Always so fun! Full Steam Ahead is my favorite!

  8. Terrill Rosado Says:

    I enjoy Karen Witemeyer’s western rom-coms. We need more rom-coms in Christian Fiction like Mary Connealy, Jen Turano, and Regina Jennings. Of course, I’m biased since rom-coms are my favorite romance sub-genre.
