For the Record, By Regina Jennings
Rather than wait for a Hero, she decided to create one. 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 my 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 Thoughts: As I’m sure you already know I love romance novels, as long as they aren’t too sappy. Lucky for me, For the Record has just the right mix of independent woman, adventure and of course a man without going overboard on anything. This is a great book to read as an afternoon escape especially on a trip, and while it is part of a three part series it can easily stand alone. If you like The Wish, you’ll for sure like For the Record
