Regina Jennings is one of my favorite historical fiction writers because she does such a great job at blending humor, history, and fiction together into a wonderful book that is hard to put down. I have read many books by Regina Jennings and For the Record did not disappoint her readers. Betsy Huckabee was a great character, full of surprises.
As I was nearing the end of the book, I really thought that I knew which direction the story would go. However, I really did not expect the story to end the way that it did. That made me enjoy the story even more.
Betsy Huckabee can’t wait to move out on her own and live her own life. She meets the newest deputy in town, Joel Puckett. She forms a grand idea to help her gain her independence. The only problem is that what she considers harmless information, actually could be something that could tear their budding friendship apart.
This story does such a good job contrasting the two main characters. They both had just enough flaws that made the story capture the reader’s attention. Jennings was able to walk that fine line between creating flaws the reader will want to read and relate to vs. creating too many flaws that become annoying as the reader continues to read.
As always, I am looking forward to the next novel that Regina Jennings writes!
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
