Publisher's Description

Jennings Offers Another Delightful Blend of History and Romance

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.

    "For The Record" is the third book in Pine Gap, Missouri. If you read "A Most Inconvenient Marriage" and "At Love's Bidding" you know about Pine Gap.

    I love how right from the start we meet Deputy Joel Puckett. An interesting first chapter that makes you want to read right through to the end.

    Betsy Huckabee also enters the story quickly. She's very strong willed, which I like, because I don't like wimpy women. She's searching for just the right story to pen to paper and ventures out after dark to try to get a story. Someday she wants to make herself known in the big cities.

    She thinks she has it all figured out using Deputy Joel Puckett for writing material. Can she keep her articles hidden since they are in newspapers far away? Can he keep his secret since she follows him everywhere he goes? He has to clean this town up from those taking the law in their own hands. Does he have a hard time showing whose the law around Pine Gap?

    Mystery and romance in an Era I love to read about. Strong characters are always a must for me and you will find them in this book. I love getting close to the hero and heroine which you will also do.

    If you enjoy Historical Fiction you will enjoy this book. You may even laugh out loud. And you will certainly want to find out what happens in the end. Enjoy!

    I received a complimentary book on behalf of the author from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a favorable review. All opinions are my own.

    "You are the most bothersome woman I've ever come across".

    Not exactly the sort of "sweet nothings" that every young woman longs to hear, but Deputy Joel Puckett is being perfectly honest after sparring nose-to-nose with the curious, pesky, infuriating, and golden haired Betsy Huckabee. After all, he transferred to Missouri to apprehend criminals, not fend off women, and a lot of strange happenings are going on behind the masks in this small town.

    Betsy Huckabee is a dreamer, itching to earn a living by writing newspaper columns, hopeful that she can live independently from her uncle and his growing family. When a bigger- than- life Texas deputy arrives on in Pine Gap, Betsy decides that he just might be able to provide her with the kind of story fodder that she needs to write a women's serial. There's only one slight problem, he doesn't want her hanging around. Evidently, the town of Pine Gap and their new deputy are both harboring secrets.

    Enjoy this often light-hearted and decidedly open-hearted tale where love and loyalty are tested to their limits.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.

    Fans of Regina Jennings may remember the inquisitive (aka nosy) young reporter from her previous book, At Loves Bidding. Now Betsy Huckabee is all grown up and determined to make it on her own. Even if that means trading in hard-hitting news for ladies serials. At least shell still be in the paper.

    And when the new deputy comes to town to restore justice and put an end to the vigilante group that has taken the law into their own hands, she discovers her inspiration. Deputy Joel Puckett isnt exactly the perfect hero, though, so some fictionalization is in order. As Betsy spends more time with the handsome deputy, she comes to appreciate the flaws in the man and begins to uncover what truly makes a hero. But what will her stories cost them now that shes gotten to know him?

    Jennings once again delivers a fun romp through the hills of Missouri. With lines like, If only shed get her hands free, shed slap the handsome clean off his face, readers will find some laughs amidst the more serious topics in the book. As Betsy looks to her future and Joel puts his past behind him, these two characters take readers through the highs and lows of learning to trust someone new.

    For The Record ( Ozark Mountain Romance #3 )

    By: Regina Jennings

    For The Record is the third book in Ozark Mountain Romance series by Regina Jennings. The author weaved together a story with history , romance , and mystery all in one story. She captured me right at the start and did not let go till the end. She did not disappoint me. I have read the first two stories in this series and loved them. I fell in love with For The Record right away. She kept be reading till way in the night trying to finish and see how things was going to turn out. The characters were so real they felt like they were jumping out of the book and I felt like I was right there with them. Betsy is from Pine Gap, Missouri and lives with her aunt and uncle. She loves them , but she want to write for a large city and be independence where she can move out, that is her goal. She gets a good look at the new deputy sheriff ,Joel Puckett , that comes in on the night train. He is sent to Gap to clean the town up . It seems that the sheriff there is not doing his job. The town is lawless and needs someone they can count on, but most of the people does not want any outside help. There is a lot gong on in Pine Gap , and can Joel get it cleaned up? What about Betsy, she is hiding a secret and does not want it out. It seems that the new sheriff also has a secret he is trying to keep from getting out. I absolutely loved For The Record , and Betsy made the story. I found myself laughing several times at her and Joel. The author kept me guessing about some mystery till the end. I love the quote A hero always came back for his lady.

    I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers and the author, but was not told that I had to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.

    "A hero always came back for his lady."

    That is a statement that Betsy Huckabee carried both in her heart and in her words. She longed one day to be a great writer and find a way to support herself so she wouldn't be a burden to her aunt and uncle any longer. Working to find interesting stories for the Pine Gap, Missouri paper wasn't easy in a small town where most folks knew the latest news even before it made it to print. She just knew that she had to try and find a way to make it on her own as an independently fierce woman of the frontier.

    Since love was the furthest thing from her mind it was easy to stay on task. After all in a town the size of Pine Gap, pickens were slim when it came to eligible single men. She wasn't about to settle for anything less than her heart desired. For now it would have to be in the fictionalization she was working on mirroring the image in part of the town's newest deputy, Joel Puckett. He arrived in town to replace the former sheriff who had gotten a bit too lazy in dealing with the town's vigilante mob known as the Bald Knobblers. They believed they were doing what the law in town was unable to do and that was minister their own brand of justice. Deputy Puckett was hired to ensure this type of justice came to a dead end, one way or the other.

    Just the perfect character for Betsy to mold her articles after, only she would change some of the details just in case Deputy Puckett happened to come across her stories. Not that he would be the type to read a newspaper printed in Kansas City. Until then Betsy would let the romance in her fictional articles be the only love she would pursue and with the Kansas City papers demanding more, it wouldn't be long before she would be able to move out on her own and make her own way in the world. If only the romance she wove on paper would manifest itself in her own life, then she might not have to settle for a single life in a small town.

    I received For the Record by Regina Jennings compliments of Baker Publishing Group and Net Galley. What I absolutely love about Regina Jennings novels is that you are guaranteed a strong-willed, female character that isn't afraid to take on society's definition of what a woman should or shouldn't do coupled with not only heart-racing romance but also a blend of humor as her characters struggle to find their own identity in the late 1800's. Betsy's character isn't about to put stay put when there is a story to discover, even if it means putting herself in harms way. She will do whatever it takes to make a future for herself even if it means painting Deputy Puckett into her stories of a brave, determined but handsome hero. This is the third novel in the Ozark Mountain Romance Series and I would rate this novel a 4 out of 5 stars!
