A Matter of Heart (Lone Star Bride #3) By Tracie Peterson Book Review

Back Cover Reads:
"Texas born and raised Jessica Atherton is a wealthy young woman whose heart was broken when the man she intended to marry wedded another. But her world is upended when two men come into her life and both manage to stir her heart. 
Harrison Gable is a rich young lawyer who intends to travel the world and live a life of opulence. His ambitions match Jessica's dreams, but her heart has begun to change. 
Austin Todd, former Secret Service agent, enjoys working now as a Texas Ranger cattle inspector. But learning of forged gold certificates and missing printing plates, he's drawn back into the world of intrigue and agrees to help solve the case. Austin is well-thought-of and admired in the community. Jessica is drawn to his kind nature and the unspoken pain she sees in his eyes. 

Will Jessica choose financial security or follow her heart?"

To start I've not read the first two books in the series, and from what I gather it's one of those series where the three books are connected but each book is about a different person. 
Having read one of Tracie's other books and with several others on my to read list, I was excited to dive into this book.

Spoiled best describes Jessica, but in this book she repents of her ways and sets out to change how people see her, and how she treats people. With much struggle she tries to live according to Gods will.
And to make it more complicated she has two men fighting for her heart.

Austin, a hard working lawman who swore he'd never love again, finds himself drawn to Jessica (and Jessica to him).
Then enters Harrison, a rich lawyer (who honestly annoyed me the moment he met her. Totally full of himself and the way he'd blatantly checked out Jessica).
All of the character are complex and the story is wonderful. A wonderful historical christian romance. Though I found the story extremely slow, I thoroughly enjoyed this book-so if you're looking for a quick read, this is not the book for you. 
4 out of 5 stars 

I received this book through Bethany House in trade for my honest review.
