Book description: "Texas born and raised Jessica Atherton is a wealthy young woman whose heart was broken when the man she intended to marry wedded another. But her world is upended when two new men come into her life, and both manage to stir her heart.
Harrison Gable is a successful young lawyer with ambitions that match Jessica's dreams. His warm, attentive manner and thoughtful gifts make her feel special.
Austin Todd, a former Secret Service agent, enjoys working now as a Texas Ranger cattle inspector. But after learning of forged gold certificates and missing printing plates, he's drawn back into the world of intrigue and agrees to help solve the case. Jessica is drawn to his kind nature and the unspoken pain she sees in his eyes.
If Jessica follows her heart, where will it lead?"
My review: This is another great book by Tracie Peterson. She is able to write in such a way that the reader feels like part of the family. In a few places it was a little hard to keep all the characters straight, but overall the story flows smoothly. The characters are well-developed and it was great to catch up with a few of the characters from the first two books in this series. Even though A Matter of Heart can stand alone, it is helpful to have read the first books. Parts of this story relate to things that happened in the first parts of this series. A Matter of Heart can be enjoyed more if you are familiar with the characters and the background from which this story was written. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
