A Matter of Character by Robin Lee Hatcher


"Who says a woman can't keep a secret?" are the words on the back cover of this book.

Of course, as a woman, I take umbrage with that. Just another reason to read this delightful Christian fiction novel, the third in The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs Series. I didn't read the first two, but this book can stand alone. Robin Lee craftfully tells the backstory within the book, so it's much like a small mystery within the story.

Set in 1918, the author gives a glimpse into the life and customs of that era. The secret, known by only one, must be revealed and henceforth begins a romance. Say, does that sound like 1918 "speak?"

This is a quick and fun read that leaves you feeling happy and satisfied.

Check out Robin's website and contest. This book is listed with Amazon. I received this book free from The Blog Tour Spot for review. Check out other reviews here.
Happy reading.

Thanks for the book review. I have many I want to read. Would have been nice if I wrote them all down and started a wish list instead of forgetting which to pick up next. (sigh)

I sent you an invite to my other blog.

Okay, that sounds right up my alley for summer reading. I love historical fiction, and a quick and fast read that I can pick up and let my mind wander is all what summer reading is all about for me. Our library is kind of small, and I found myself checking out the same books all the time so I started going alphabetically about 3 years ago. I am now on the D's! I have found a ton of great books that I otherwise would never have found, some bad ones, but I have been very pleasantly surprised. I will have to deviate from my pattern.

And as my babies are only a week old, they are residing in my pantry. When they get a lot bigger, I will move them into the coop, but I have hawks around and so they would be a tasty snack at this stage! I do have really weird things in my pantry, I know!

This sounds like perfect summer reading material.

And I dig historical fiction.

Hope your summer gets off to a wonderful start.

Sweet dreams.
