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.

    Oh dear! Betsy Huckabee thought she had the perfect plot to finally move out of her uncle and aunt's home and into her own place. It should have worked. Really it should have. The new Deputy in town simply had to be dramatically heroic - enough to make the ladies swoon - and she'd have the perfect stories to send into the lady's fictional section of the newspaper in order to make a few dollars.

    The problem is... he really is heroic (when he isn't being a complete annoyance) and he's also incredibly handsome (Too handsome). The big city newspaper also makes a rather big mistake and publishes her fictional stories in the true news section.... the results of which are NOT pretty.

    Between masked vigilantes, stubborn ponies, crazy mountain men, and vivid imaginations... this story is a fun read.

    This is a classic romantic comedy: light hearted, fun, enough mystery to keep you turning the pages, and corny but in a really sweet way.

    There are a few romantic sections that might not be appropriate for a younger audience - nothing scandalous, by any means - but I wouldn't give this book to someone under 15.

    Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Baker Publishing Group for a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    There were several things I liked about this tale. First, there were layers of mysteries going on at the same time, but it didn't feel muddy or confusing to the main plot. Since a journalist and a lawman are both the types of people expected to encounter and help mend unusual situations, it was fitting that they were in the middle of several things at once. The story moved along well and was actually quite funny in places.

    I also enjoyed the way Jennings' use of language seemed true to the historical era. Among her characters, one "smelled like a vat of pickles," one "picked his teeth with a knitting needle," and one's "legs were as stable as soaked white oak splits on basket-making day." From washing out crockery to using shaving soap, from washing in the creek to the obvious separations between men and women or locals and out-of-towners, her descriptions seemed authentic and not forced. The slang and nicknames seemed appropriate to the time period and not corny. I liked that.

    I look forward to reading another novel by this author and would even read this one again.

    I was grateful to receive a free copy of For the Record from Bethany House in exchange for an unbiased review of it.

    I really enjoyed For the Record...it takes readers back to Pine Gap, Missouri. Big Texas deputy Joel Puckett is desperate to prove himself in the tiny town that needs the law. Betsy is trapped in the town that she loves, but she wants to make her own place in the world. The sparks fly as these two interact while Joel is trying to bring law and order to a community that likes to take things into their own hands. Betsy unintentionally creates havoc in his life, and they have to choose whether they're going to love each other anyway. It's a fun read, and I loved the glimpse at prior characters -- though you don't to read the prior books to enjoy this one. Perfect for lovers of historical, 1880s romances filled with humor and delightful characters.

    The suspense was a little flat but it wasn't the main focus. The romance between Joel and Betsy was the main focus and I enjoyed the banter and dynamic between the two of them. It was easy to feel along with the two of them and understand their motivation behind some of what they did. It was a cute little romance with some suspense, but it didn't have much substance to it. I was a little disappointed with the ending because it was hyping up to lead to a head but it never really lived up to the hype.

    Betsy Huckabee is an inquisitive free spirit who went at 10 years old to live with her uncle and help him raise his three boys after her aunt died. She is still living there and working with her uncle on the newspaper he runs but now he's married, his boys are mostly grown and with a new family on the way for new aunt and uncle she feels underfoot. She needs a way to support herself so she can get her own place. She's met and ruled out all the single men in and around town. She's not willing to settle down with any of them just to be in her own home. She'd rather work and keep her independence even if that's not the usual way of things.

    She knows the forests and mountains around her town and she often takes off, more often than not after a story that may be brewing. It's on one of these jaunts that she finds the new deputy sheriff. Until now she's tried to make her way reporting news, but she's in need of a good story and what if he can't deliver? Why not branch into fiction? She changes a few details here and there but the new deputy and the goings on around town and the surrounding area are her inspiration. She's told the newspaper that's buying the stories that they are fiction and assumes they are being printed as a ladies' serial . . .

    This is a fun adventure that you don't want to miss. Colourful characters, humour and non stop action.
