THE HEART'S CHOICE by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse, Reviewed by Paula #ReleaseDay

From the stunning cover to the final pages, I thoroughly loved this novel. This writing team is one of the best for Historical Christian Fiction. The research was the backbone of this story and depicts the beginning of a new Carnegie Library in Kalispell, Montana in 1904 and fictional Rebecca Whitman who becomes the first female court reporter in the state.

The authors have spun a terrific tale of mystery, romance, faith and courtroom drama that I will not soon forget. I loved the touch of humor with the small white dog and the fleshed out characters. I am grateful for the clear gospel message this story contains.

The heroine was on a search for the truth in the Bible and realized that a relationship with God, through Christ, can be personal. Other themes included reconciliation, being too busy to focus on family and relationships and not being afraid to accept help from those older and wiser, great lessons to learn from this entertaining read.

Put this one on your To Be Read pile.

* I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House on behalf of the authors. I was not required to post a favorable review. All opinions are my own.*5 stars and a strong faith thread.

BackCover Blurb:
They must uncover the truth before it's buried forever.

After witnessing a wrongful conviction as a young girl, Rebecca Whitman--the first female court reporter in Montana--is now determined to defend the innocent. During a murder trial, something doesn't sit well with her about the case, but no one except the handsome new Carnegie librarian will listen to her.

Librarian Mark Andrews's father sent him to college hoping he would take over the business side of the family ranch, but Mark would rather wrangle books than cows. When a patron seeks help with research in hopes of proving a man's innocence, Mark is immediately drawn to her and her cause.

In a race against time, will Rebecca and Mark find the evidence they need--and open their hearts to love--before it's too late?
