Review of To Honor and Cherish by Kari Trumbo

To Honor and Cherish

Western Vows, Book 1

By Kari Trumbo

Genre: Historical Christian Romance


Meg never complained when her father stipulated in his will that she must marry and have a male heir to own his ranch. That is, until she lost her husband to a spring storm. Now everything that looked secure in her life is as destroyed as the buildings around her.

If the loss of her spouse wasn’t hard enough, she now has to take on the ranch and the new foreman, Jax. He likes to argue with her even more than he likes his job. Meg wants to trust him, but Jax is running from something. He has secrets that could put Meg and the ranch in grave danger.

Can Jax conquer his past and teach Meg what love is really like? Can Meg trust that he wants her for more than just the land?

Ultimately, this story is about listening to God’s will over what others say is right or wrong. God’s will does not change, nor does his love for us. His timing may not fit with our own, but it’s always right
Available on Amazon
My Review
To Honor and Cherish is a sweet Christian historical romance with an inspiring message of hope after tragedy. After Meg loses her husband she is left alone and in danger of losing her land and everything she cares about. When Jax appears, looking for a job on her ranch, she isn't sure she can trust him, but could God have sent him into her life for a special purpose?
I've always enjoyed reading historical romance with a western theme and this book did not disappoint. The story had an inspiring message of faith weaved throughout. I loved Meg's character because of her courage and independence. She has faced tragedy in her life but keeps her faith in God through it all. Jax character was mysterious enough to keep me interested in the storyline and wonder what secrets he was harboring. I loved his gentle personality and how he protected Meg during the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and recommend it for those who love Christian romance.
