Book Review: For the Record

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the Book

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 Opinion

I have read several of Regina Jennings's books. She writes very upbeat, comical and lighthearted historical fiction books. For the Record is no different.

This book details the love story between Joel and Betsy and it leads you through adventure, crime, suspense and love but does it all in a lighthearted way. This book kind of has a slow story line and definitely is fiction. If you are looking for a historical fiction that details historical events or gives you insight into past historical events, this is not it.

This book is great for the romantic at heart and someone who is just looking for a lighthearted historical fiction book.
