For the Record

This time of year, many of us take a little break from blogging. So in light of slowing down after the fast pace of holiday preparations, I thought I would review a book I recently read.

"For the Record" is the first book I've read by this author. She put a delightful spin on this novel. In the late 1800's women were still left in the dark as far as being in a business profession. Betsy Huckabee has dreams. Dreams of being a writer, stirring readers with more than local gossip and weather reports. When Deputy Joel Puckett breezes into Pine Gap Missouri, his life is about to take on new challenge. The small town has problems, and locals think they can deal with it in their own way. Deputy Puckett stands by enforcing the law. When Betsy decides to write a story about the tall Texan, she finds herself tangled in a web that may likely cost her and the Deputy more than they bargained for. 

The story was so entertaining, with lighthearted banter between Betsy and Joel. When they join forces to discover who is behind the crimes taking place in the small town, they end up with more of a surprise than they had ever imagined. 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The review and opinions are solely mine.
