For The Record By Regina Jennings

Back of the Book

Betsy Huckabee might be a small-town girl, but she has big-city dreams. Writing for her uncle's newspaper will never lead to independence, and the bigger newspapers don't seem interested in the Hart County news. Trying a new approach, Betsy pens a romanticized serial for the ladies' pages, and the new deputy provides the perfect inspiration for her submissions. She'd be horrified if he read her breathless descriptions of him, but these articles are for a newspaper far away. No one in Pine Gap will ever know.
Deputy Joel Puckett didn't want to leave Texas, but this job in tiny Pine Gap is his only shot at keeping his badge. With masked marauders riding every night, his skills and patience are tested, but even more challenging is the sassy journalist lady chasing him.

My Thoughts

For The Record is, by far, the most entertaining historical novel I have read in a while.  Jennings character descriptions are so well written that it's not hard to picture yourself right there in the middle of Pine Gap.   Betsy is an amazing, tenacious, main character with both spunk, kindness, and an entertaining imagination. Then there is Joel, the poor man is just trying to figure out this quirky town and the people in it. With Betsy and Joel's different personalities, and Betsy's desire for great writing material, you are guaranteed some entertaining scenes between the two.

True to Jennings novels, there is more to this story than meets the eye, with love, mystery, and secrets, this story will grab your attention right from the start.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book.
