My Thoughts: Tracie Peterson is another favorite author of mine. In A Matter of Heart we meet Jessica Atherton. Jessica is a Texan. . . I love books about Texas! Anyway, Jessica was all set to marry and her intended ran off and married another.
Then enter not one but two eligible men! Harrison is a lawyer, warm and attentive to Jessica. Austin in a Secret Service Agent.
This is not a spoiler alert---I kept rooting for Austin because well, his name is Texan and he's kind.of tough and mysterious. I love that he's a secret service agent. I liked Harrison, too, but lawyers are a dime a dozen.
When forged gold certificates and printing plates are missing Austin is on the job.
There's mystery and intrigue in.this.here book! And as a reader I enjoyed it immensely!
This is the third book in the Lone Star (Texas, ya know) Brides "series." I didn't get a change to read the first two books and was not lost because this is a stand alone read!
This is a great read by Tracie Peterson! Enough good clean romance and mystery to keep the reader involved and turning the pages! Enjoy!!
