Betsy Huckabee longs for more than helping her uncle set up type for the weekly newspaper. She wants her stories to reach people beyond Pine Gap. When a new deputy shows up, she gets the idea to shadow him in order to come up with material for a serial in the ladies' section of the newspaper. The only problem is, the man doesn't say or act like a sigh-worthy hero.
Deputy Joel Puckett has no desire to get tangled up with another woman and doesn't take too kindly to having a young lady follow his every movement. It's hard enough coming in as a replacement for the local sheriff and trying to gain the local folks' trust. What he doesn't need is a pesky girl getting in the way of his investigations.
I recently finished reading Regina Jennings new book, For the Record. I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful tale set in the back hills of Missouri in 1885. I found myself laughing at the antics between Betsy and Joel and hated to see the book come to an end. I give it a 5 out of 5 for happily-ever-afters.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
