A Matter of Character by Robin Lee Hatcher

A Matter of Character by Robin Lee Hatcher is the third in her The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series but reads well as a stand-alone title. I hadn't read the first two and I don't feel like I missed a beat.

Daphne McKinley is an inspiring heroine in this volume. She is a woman, writing dime novels under an assumed name in a mans world. Her identity is threatened by the new man in town. He's itching to find out who is writing about his grandfather so he can correct the author on what he insists are inconsistencies.

The grandfathers story is told throughout the book and it reveals his sordid past and his transformation when he comes to know and accept Jesus into his life.

Very well written and entertaining. An altogether enjoyable read.

About the book:
It's 1918, and Daphne McKinley, heiress to a small fortune, has found contentment in the town of Bethlehem Springs. But Daphne has a secret. A series of dime novels loosely based on local lore and featuring a nefarious villain known as Rawhide Rick has enjoyed modest popularity among readers. Nobody in Bethlehem Springs knows the man behind the stories . . . except Daphne. When newspaperman Joshua Crawford comes to town searching for the man who sullied the good name of his grandfather, Daphne finds herself at a crossroads, reassessing the power of her words, re-thinking how best to honor her gifts, and reconsidering what she wants out of life.
