Book Review

For the Record by Regina Jennings

 Deputy Pukett’s face tightened.
“I swear, woman. Stop Jumping out at me like that.”


How have I not read a Regina Jennings book before? I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have found her, but I will try. First of all,  I love the sassy-ness of this book and the crazy situations Betsy gets herself into.  Second, the story has a handsome Texan Cowboy. Third, the mule scene, when a certain mule bites ….well… about giggling. I do not want to give it away, but I think that was one of my favorite scenes in the book. I did read this book in one day and absolutely loved it. It appealed to my sense of humour and I believe that these characters have been featured in previous Regina Jennings books, so guess who will be going back to read the books I have missed.

When Deputy Joel Puckett steps off the train in Pine Gap, Missouri, he does not know what he is in for. Betsy Huckabee is a girl after my own heart, I loved the journalist in her.

For the Record is set in the 19th century, in 1885 to be exact, and Regina brings this period alive, as well as the perilous mountains and terrain of Missouri.  Deputy Puckett is used to the open prairies of Texas, so he feels like a fish out of water.

For the Record is quite an adventure, and you will be guessing till the end, but one thing is sure, you will fall head over heals for the characters in this tiny town of Pine Gap. Most of all, a certain Deputy and his lady.

After all, a hero always comes back for his lady.
