I have serious personal issues with anything Tracie Peterson and Tamera Alexander write. I give this book a biased solid 5. Taken from that what you will ( )

Loved this book. Tracie Peterson is a terrific author. This completes the series and I wish there were more to go with this. ( )

This is the third book in Tracie Peterson‘s Lone Star Brides series.

I have now read all three of them now and let me just say…


Each story is better than the last – not always how it works.

A Matter of Heart is another great read!

Such powerful emotions, such great stories, such strong characters – and how she comes up with so many different ones who are similar in some ways but still so very different… well, it’s only one of the things that makes her such an amazing author!

Unlike my experience with the first book in this series; I didn’t even bother to read any of the other silly reviews for this book.

And I do believe that Tracie’s sales speak for themselves!

I have a whole new outlook on Texas and I have to say that…even though I absolutely detest heat, I just have to see it someday soon!

Of course it won’t be the same… but worth it all the same, I’m sure!

Once again I am thrilled to say that God is interwoven into the story in a perfect way! So many Christian fiction books are either too preachy or there’s not nearly enough of God in the story for it to truly work as a Christian fiction novel.

And I know I’ve said it before but it has to be said again. It’s so much more believable for me as far as history goes because… Historically speaking… people were more religious. So it’s more believable, more accurate and it’s more interesting!

The book is a new favorite of mine and I’m sad to see that it’s the last one. Although I’m hopeful she has more series in the works already!

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I loved this story and the characters. Jessica and Austin were wonderful. It was nice reading about Texas and learning a little about what the secret service once worked on. I look forward to more in this series and other books by Tracie Peterson. I received this from Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion. ( )

A Matter of Heart by, Tracie Peterson, is the third book in the Lone Star Brides series. While it can be read as a stand alone book, I recommend reading the first two books, A Sensible Arrangement and A Moment In Time, as they introduce many of the characters in A Matter of Heart.

The story opens in outside of Dallas in 1896. Jessica Atherton, a child of privilege, is coming face to face with herself and she doesn't like what she sees. She realizes she has been selfish, thoughtless and often cruel. Her friends have distanced themselves from her and she worries that she will remain single forever. She truly desires to change, but her apologies to those she has hurt are met with mixed results. The most surprising comes from the woman she may have been the cruelest to. As for remaining single, it doesn't appear likely as she has a number of suitors. Two very different men fall in love with her and she is attracted to both. One can give her the life she always thought she wanted, one filled with travel and expensive trappings. The other can provide a life that offers different values- ones with meaning. There is more to this story that gives it additional depth. An open case of forged gold certificates and missing printing plates comes to light again. Jessica's friends are threatened and the man she has come to love faces great danger as he tries to solve the case. Has she become secure enough to accept his decision and the outcome?

I have enjoyed every book I have read by this author, including this one. She is a gifted storyteller who creates realistic characters and a solid story line. This is a story of faith, love and mystery. I recommend reading this book.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House Publishers and I give this review of my own free will. ( )

It came as a delightful surprise when I remembered that I had already read the first book in this Lone Star Brides Series, “A Sensible Arrangement.” Now, having read the third book of this series, I definitely want to read the second book, “Moment in Time.” Tracie’s well-honed prose that mixes mystery, romance, and humor during the late 1800’s creates a fascinating read.

Jessica Atherton seems to be left behind when all her friends have married and having babies. Jessica had imagined herself married to a wealthy handsome man and living a life of luxury in a large city. She feels the sting of rejection from the man she had planned to marry, Robert Barnett, who married another. She ponders why and decides the reason might be her own behavior toward others. She realizes she is tactless, hurtful to others, spoiled and selfish and begins to work on changing herself. The first of Tracie’s story is a bit slow until Jessica decides a change is in order and things begin to happen.

Jessica feels she is being pitied during a gathering of friends and family at her parent’s home in Texas. She could barely handle Robert Barnett arriving with his wife Alice and new baby. She thought to herself “that baby should be mine.” Inadequate is how she felt when she overheard comments being made. Her own mother had urged her to draw closer to God and forget about her beauty. She thought her mother simply did not understand – no one did. It wasn’t as though she had not had suitors; she had turned down several proposals.

We meet widower Austin Todd in the middle of a reoccurring nightmare. He feels responsible for the deaths of his wife Grace, his stillborn baby, and his brother. He sees them all in his dream plus the disapproving and accusing eyes of his mother and father. He was a cattle inspector for the Texas Rangers and had formerly worked in Washington D.C. for the Treasury Department’s Secret Service. Ironically, Robert Barnett was the first to visit him with an invitation to a gathering on the Barnett Ranch. Robert’s father had plans to build a railroad spur and a new town and wanted Austin Todd to be the Marshall. The Barnett gathering is where Jessica and Austin meet for the first time – pleasantly aware of each other, but afterward Austin kept his distance.

Another newcomer to this large cattle area is handsome attorney Harrison Gable. He immediately is attracted to Jessica, but there is something about him that seemed untrustworthy. Jessica is drawn to Harrison, but really cares for Austin. Now everything begins to get a bit messy – a lot of iniquitous and mysterious happenings need Austin to investigate.

Some characters and situations have been carried through both novels in this series that I have read. A Matter of Heart brings them altogether through this gifted author’s pen. Ms. Peterson concludes this series cleverly and artfully. You will enjoy the warm feelings tendered and watch a young woman face challenges that will renew her faith and maturity. It is almost impossible for me to conceive the numerous books Tracie Peterson has composed…..she is definitely creating a reputation for herself! (Notice the pun…..Jessica certainly made a new reputation for herself) Now, go buy the series and see for yourself how Ms. Peterson can entertain you.

I was provided this book by Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing for my honest review. I have not received any compensation.
