Book Review: For the Record

From the Back:

Rather Than Wait for a Hero, She Decided to Create One 
Betsy Huckabee has big-city dreams, but nobody outside of tiny Pine Gap, Missouri, seems interested in the articles she writes for her uncle's newspaper. Her hopes for independence may be crushed, until the best idea she's ever had comes riding into town.

Deputy Joel Puckett didn't want to leave Texas, but unfair circumstances have made moving to Pine Gap his only shot at keeping a badge. Worse, this small town has big problems, and masked marauders have become too comfortable taking justice into their own hands. He needs to make clear that he's the law in this town--and that job is made more difficult with a nosy reporter who seems to follow him everywhere he goes.

The hero Betsy creates to be the star in a serial for the ladies' pages is based on the dashing deputy, but he's definitely fictional. And since the pieces run only in newspapers far away, no one will ever know. But the more time she spends with Deputy Puckett, the more she appreciates the real hero--and the more she realizes what her ambition could cost him.

My Reflections:

Historical romance at its finest with Regina Jennings's newest book "For the Record."
Nothing screams desperate like an annoying maiden past her prime traipsing through the backcountry looking for a good story..or perhaps a dashing hero?

Betsy Huckabee is just that girl. A dreamer, a budding writer, a tad desperate to be heard, to be taken seriously to be swept off her feet, well not really. Betsy is done with men after all she has given them up entirely, that is until a newcomer arrives at the dusty depot, ruffled and sure of himself. She only intends to use him as fodder for her articles, but what happens next is quite the unexpected.

Deputy Joel Puckett finds his new post in Pine Gap simply exasperating. Not only does he lack the support from the townspeople, but he also finds himself saddled with a less than a stellar horse and a bothersome sidekick. Can these two work out their differences long enough to bring law and order to this town or will winsome and headstrong Betsy ruin his every attempt? Will the fine deputy's past catch up with him?

Hilariously awkward, deliciously romantic and non-stop antics keep the pages flipping in this historical fiction. If you are looking for a tantalizingly sweet romance with action and humor, look no further this is your book!
