A Matter of Heart by Tracie Peterson
I wanted to share this book with you; it has been a long time since I read anything by Tracie Peterson. I have always enjoyed Tracie's writing and her stories, but somehow just got stuck on other genres. This was a wonderful story to get reintroduced to an excellent author.
The story is set in Texas and revolves around a young woman name Jessica Atherton; born to a life of privilege. Jessica had planned to marry a man she had known all her life, but when he married another, she thought she'd never find love again. Two men enter Jessica's life, one is Harrison Gable who is a lawyer and rich. Being the beautiful woman she is, he instantly begins to woe her; another man also is drawn to Jessica for her spunk and forthright personality. Austin Todd is a Texas Ranger who has lost everything he held dear and plans to never become involved with a woman. Jessica is drawn to both men, for opposite reasons. The characters are rich and developed; you can imagine yourself living in this area.
I loved this story and will read more of Tracie's books in the future. I would give it ten stars.
I was provided this book by Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing for my honest review. I have not received any compensation.
I would also like to offer this book to one of my followers; just leave me a comment letting me know you are interested and on Thursday, I'll draw a name. Noreen
