A Matter of Heart

“A Matter of Heart” by Tracie Peterson takes us back to Texas for Jessica’s story. Jessica Atherton is the spoiled daughter of a wealthy rancher. She was heartbroken when the man she thought she would marry fell in love with someone else. When she overhears several people talking about her she decides it is time to change from her selfish ways. She sets out to make amends with those she hurt and hopes to find true love. She meets two men and they quickly catch her attention. Harrison Gable is a successful smooth talking lawyer. He decides that Jessica is the woman he will marry and he will not let anything stand in his way. The other man is Texas Ranger Austin Todd. Austin is a cattle inspector and spends a lot of time with Jessica’s family. Austin has lost all of his family and feels like it is his fault. He does not believe that he is worthy of Jessica’s love but the more time he is with her the more he falls for her. Jessica turns to God to help her become a better person and to guide her to the right man He has in mind for her.

This is another wonderful book by Tracie Peterson. She has a way with writing a story that will draw the reader in and make them feel like they are a part of the story. When we first met Jessica in “A Moment in Time” I did not like her but in this book we see how she grows from the selfish spoiled girl she was to a godly Christian woman. We also see how Austin changes from a bitter man to one filled with hope after he turns to God to help him forgive himself. This is the third book in the Lone Star Brides trilogy and I highly recommend reading “A Sensible Arrangement” and “A Moment in Time” first in order to know what is going on throughout this book. I also recommend reading the Land of the Lone Star trilogy since that’s where most of the characters in this trilogy were first introduced. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.
