Back Cover Blurb:
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.
I had recently read one of Jennings other novels, and I was delighted to find out For the Record featured Betsy Huckabee, once a mischievous child now all grown up and desperate for independence. She is a wonderful character, and though she has matured in her antics, she is no less plucky.
This was a fun read, and I enjoyed the plot and the character development of Deputy Puckett and Betsy Huckabee. Of course, loving to craft stories myself, and I enjoyed Betsy’s creativity, and quest to grow as a writer. (And her resulting misadventures!)
Those of you who enjoy sweet historical romance with a healthy dose of humor will appreciate this story.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions are my own.
