A Matter of Heart by Tracie Peterson

About the Book
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 new men come into her life, and both manage to stir her heart.
Harrison Gable is a successful young lawyer with ambitions that match Jessica's dreams. His warm, attentive manner and thoughtful gifts make her feel special.
Austin Todd, a former Secret Service agent, enjoys working now as a Texas Ranger cattle inspector. But after 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. Jessica is drawn to his kind nature and the unspoken pain she sees in his eyes.

If Jessica follows her heart, where will it lead?

My Thoughts
As much as I hate to do it, this is going to be a DNF review. I don't have as much reading time as I used to and I just can't justify spending three hours on a book that I am not enjoying at all. I made it about 40 pages in but just couldn't make myself read anymore. I read and enjoyed the first book of this series so it was a bit of a disappointment me for me not to feel the same about this one. The story just didn't seem flow very well and there was a lot of telling rather showing. Add to that the fact that I wasn't really a fan of the heroine and it just made the book unreadable for me. But please don't just take my word for it, this is only my opinion and I know there are several five and four star reviews on Amazon!

I've felt the same way about some of her other recent books. Disappointing :(

Heidi-Glad it isn't just me, but it is kind of sad. I haven't really read any of her older stuff so I can't really compare!
