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?

I have been loving this series! (Click the titles for my reviews of the first two books, A Sensible Arrangement and A Moment in Time.) Tracie Peterson wraps up the trilogy with a story focusing on Jessica, whose appearances in book two showed her to be a shallow and rather petulant young woman. Peterson expertly develops Jessica into a likable and sympathetic character as she becomes convicted of her self-absorbed lifestyle and endeavors to change. Although this book reads easily as a stand-alone, character appearances and references to previous events add greater depth for those who have read the first two novels. Thoroughly satisfying, A Matter of Heart will capture yours!
