About the book:
After Miss Wilhelmina
Radcliff’s father lost the family fortune in a poor investment decision,
she finds herself banished from the fashionable set within New York
society and directly into the wallflower section. Taking on work as a
social secretary in order to help with family expenses, she spends her
time penning out invitations to all the most sought-after events,
wondering if her life will ever improve.
While languishing one
evening at a ball given by one of the esteemed New York patriarchs,
Wilhelmina is appalled to discover that Mr. Edgar Wanamaker, her oldest
and dearest friend, and the first gentleman to offer her a marriage
proposal, has shown up at the ball unexpectedly, having been absent from
New York ever since she rejected his offer years before.
Miss Permilia Griswold,
the wallflower behind "The Quill" gossip column, knows everything that
goes on in the ballrooms of New York. When she overhears a threat
against the estimable Mr. Asher Rutherford, she's determined to warn
him. Away from society's spotlight, Asher and Permilia discover there's
more going on behind the scenes than they anticipated.

Jennings Offers Another Delightful Blend of History and Romance
Betsy Huckabee might be a small-town girl, but she has big-city dreams. Writing for her uncle's newspaper will never lead to independence, and the bigger newspapers don't seem interested in the Hart County news. Trying a new approach, Betsy pens a romanticized serial for the ladies' pages, and the new deputy provides the perfect inspiration for her submissions. She'd be horrified if he read her breathless descriptions of him, but these articles are for a newspaper far away. No one in Pine Gap will ever know.
Deputy Joel Puckett didn't want to leave Texas, but this job in tiny Pine Gap is his only shot at keeping his badge. With masked marauders riding every night, his skills and patience are tested, but even more challenging is the sassy journalist lady chasing him.
Regina Jennings is a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in English and a history minor. She has worked at The Mustang News and First Baptist Church of Mustang, along with time at the Oklahoma National Stockyards and various livestock shows. She now lives outside Oklahoma City with her husband and four children.
Betsy has to be one of my favorite characters ever! She was so fun, quirky, sassy, and definitely determined! She was a definite woman after my own heart, she watched Deputy Puckett and created her own hero, people watching is one of my favorite past-times.
A true chick-lit book that you will enjoy from beginning to end.
