Book Review: A Matter of Character by Robin Lee Hatcher

"Joshua longed to turn his rage onto his boss, to give Langston Lee a little of what he'd already given Gregory Halifax. But he had enough good sense left to resist the urge. He was already out of a job. He didn't want to spend time in a jail cell besides.

But so help him, he would prove Gregory Halifax was a shoddy reporter and see that he was fired. He would hear Langston Lee apologize. And he would make certain D.B. Morgan never again maligned his grandfather in print.

This wasn't over yet." A Matter of Character, pg 10.

Daphne McKinley has a secret. The heiress of a small fortune writes dime novels loosely based on local lore. Her imagination is captivated by tales of the notorious villain named Rawhide Rick. No one in her small town of Bethlehem Springs knows that the novelist D.B. Morgan is actually Daphne, and she wants to keep it that way. But when a strange newspaperman comes to town looking for D.B. Morgan, it seems that the secret is out of the bag. A search for the truth ensues. But can the loving and generous grandfather that Joshua remembers be the same man that Daphne depicts in her novels?

A Matter of Character is the third book in Hatcher's The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series. I really enjoyed the storyline with its many twists and turns. Hatcher isn't afraid to put her characters in a tough place, and then make things even harder for them. This was a fun read, and I'm looking forward to adding more of Robin Lee Hatcher's works to my library.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
