Today’s book review features
Fairest of Heart by Karen Witemeyer.
About the Book
Beauty has been nothing but a curse to Penelope Snow. When she becomes a personal maid for a famous actress whose troupe is leaving Chicago to tour the West, she hides her figure beneath shapeless dresses and keeps her head down. But she still manages to attract the wrong attention, leaving her prospects in tatters–and her jealous mistress plotting her demise.
After his brother lost his life over a woman, Texas ranger Titus Kingsley has learned to expect the worst from women and is rarely disappointed. So when a young woman found in suspicious circumstances takes up residence with the seven old drovers living at his grandfather’s ranch, Titus is determined to keep a close eye on her.
With a promotion hanging in the balance, Titus is assigned to investigate a robbery case tied to Penelope’s acting troupe. The evidence points to her guilt, but Titus’s heart divines a different truth–one that might just get Penelope killed.
An enchanting Western take on the classic Snow White fairy tale, Fairest of Heart will sweep you away from once upon a time to happily ever after.

Fairest of Heart by Karen Witemeyer is the first book in her Texas Ever After series and a western retelling of Snow White.
This was a wonderful story! I loved the characters and they were perfect reimaginings of the characters from Snow White. From Penelope to Titus to the seven drovers … I loved them all! And the plot was so carefully crafted to follow the fairytale while also wrapping it around new concepts and a western theme. And with the author’s usual prowess at storytelling, I absolutely loved it!
