For the Record by Regina Jennings
From the publisher:
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.
Regina Jennings has written a book that is part of a series but definitely is a stand-alone book if one wants to read it that way.
Betsy is a lively character and is a funny character to read. Joel is a strong and serious character. It is interesting to read their banter and learn more about the town of Pine Gap.
I had a hard time getting into the characters however. The setting was interesting and the situation was different than any I had read before but I just couldn't get into it. However, I am sure many readers will enjoy this book.
I received this book free from the publisher. I all opinions are my own.
