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 received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
Betsy Huckabee is a character who has shown up previously in the Ozark Mountain Romance series by Regina Jennings, and every time she popped onto the page, I loved her. So to get to read a novel where she was the main character, I didn’t want to miss it!
Betsy is witty, sharp, and a bit unconventional. To contrast her, Joel Puckett is a bit more by the book. But it wasn’t just these two that made For the Record a fantastic book. While the characters welcomed me into their lives, the plot kept me turning pages and unwilling to leave. For the Record had a by of mystery to it that I was just as interested in figuring out as the characters were.
This was a wonderful book. Themes of fighting for what’s right stood out strongly within the pages and the characters had to figure this out for themselves as well. This was a book filled with wonderful characters and an entertaining story. I’d highly recommend it.
