- Another Fun Read from Regina Jennings by Suzie on 12/4/2016
Fans of Regina Jennings may remember the inquisitive (aka nosy) young reporter from her previous book, At Love’s Bidding. Now Betsy Huckabee is all grown up and determined to make it on her own. Even if that means trading in hard-hitting news for ladies’ serials. At least she’ll still be in the paper.
And when the new deputy comes to town to restore justice and put an end to the vigilante group that has taken the law into their own hands, she discovers her inspiration. Deputy Joel Puckett isn’t exactly the perfect hero, though, so some fictionalization is in order. As Betsy spends more time with the handsome deputy, she comes to appreciate the flaws in the man and begins to uncover what truly makes a hero. But what will her stories cost them now that she’s gotten to know him?
Jennings once again delivers a fun romp through the hills of Missouri. With lines like, “If only she’d get her hands free, she’d slap the handsome clean off his face,” readers will find some laughs amidst the more serious topics in the book. As Betsy looks to her future and Joel puts his past behind him, these two characters take readers through the highs and lows of learning to trust someone new.

For The Record ( Ozark Mountain Romance #3 )
By: Regina Jennings
For The Record is the third book in Ozark Mountain Romance series by Regina Jennings. The author weaved together a story with history , romance , and mystery all in one story. She captured me right at the start and did not let go till the end. She did not disappoint me. I have read the first two stories in this series and loved them. I fell in love with For The Record right away. She kept be reading till way in the night trying to finish and see how things was going to turn out. The characters were so real they felt like they were jumping out of the book and I felt like I was right there with them. Betsy is from Pine Gap, Missouri and lives with her aunt and uncle. She loves them , but she want to write for a large city and be independence where she can move out, that is her goal. She gets a good look at the new deputy sheriff ,Joel Puckett , that comes in on the night train. He is sent to Gap to clean the town up . It seems that the sheriff there is not doing his job. The town is lawless and needs someone they can count on, but most of the people does not want any outside help. There is a lot gong on in Pine Gap , and can Joel get it cleaned up? What about Betsy, she is hiding a secret and does not want it out. It seems that the new sheriff also has a secret he is trying to keep from getting out. I absolutely loved For The Record , and Betsy made the story. I found myself laughing several times at her and Joel. The author kept me guessing about some mystery till the end. I love the quote “A hero always came back for his lady.”
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers and the author, but was not told that I had to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Welcome to the Town of Pine Gap in the Ozarks, where Regina is from. The town is full of a bunch of interesting and in many cases lawless characters, and the town law enforcement officers turns a blind eye to their activities. The people there are all trying to grab a little piece of life and land in Pine gap for themselves and their family, and some of them will do anything to get it. Now, there is a new Deputy from Texas shows up in town, Joel, and he falls for Betsy - and he does not throw his blinders on to the lawlessness in the town. He has a secret that he left behind in Texas and he wants it to stay there - does it stay there? He has a good heart and he wants to stop all the lawlessness in Pine Gap but he keeps bumping into wall after wall. does he ever break any of them down? Is he able to break the lawlessness in the town? Is he able to make Pine Gap safe? will anyone help him? Betsy wants to be a writer maybe for the Kansas City newspaper - does she ever get there? does she ever get with Joel? What is the most amazing - wonderful twist? I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
