*On Fridays I will share what I’ve been reading, whether fiction or non-fiction. The books here can range from fiction of any genre, to personal development, to how-to, and anything and everything in between.

The Stats

Title: For the Record
Author: Regina Jennings
Publisher/Year: Bethany House 2016
Genre: Christian Historical Romance Fiction


Betsy is looking for independence, and writing fictionalized accounts of the new deputy in town to sell to major newspapers seems the best way to make some money so that she can finally have a place of her own. Joel is trying to do what is right in a town that is upside down with masked vigilantes running around dispensing their brand of justice, and the last thing he needs is to be distracted by a noisy newspaper woman. Especially considering the fact that a woman was the reason he left his beloved Texas in the first place. But tension in Pine Gap, Missouri is growing, both between the the law and those seeking justice, and between Joel and Betsy themselves.

I enjoyed the book overall. The most intriguing parts for me were between Deputy Joel Puckett and the leader of the Bald Knobbers, Clive Fowler, as they discussed the law versus justice. Very thought provoking. And I couldn’t help but chuckle as Joel tried to deal with the ‘horse’ that the mayor provided for him when he first arrived in town. Humor throughout, action, and a simple love story told in a chaotic environment made for an overall fun read.

How was your Thanksgiving?
