Anytime I have the chance to read and review a Tracie Peterson book from Bethany House, I jump on it. I have always loved her work and this one set in Texas (a favorite setting of mine) did not disappoint at all. A Matter of Heart is set in Texas and centers around Jessica Atherton, a wealthy young woman who has been born and raised in Texas. Jessica immediately faces the challenges of a young woman who is seen as spoiled. She comes to realize that maybe these accusations are true and we see her throughout the book fighting to overcome this image. Not only does she face this challenge, but she is unmarried in a town where all of her friends have settled down with families of their own. She struggles to find what her heart wants - Harrison Gable, a wealthy young lawyer who can give her whatever she wants, or Austin Todd, a Texas Ranger/former Secret Service agent who is running away from his own past. In this book there is romance, mystery, a little suspense and the theme of fighting the odds to overcome obstacles with God on your side. This is a great read and I can't wait for the rest of the series.
