The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series delivers exactly what readers have been waiting for—smart, confident women who are not afraid to defy convention, live their own dreams, and share their lives if the right man comes along. In A Matter of Character, book three in the Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series, 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Another great book Robin! I loved this series :)
Date published: 2014-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secrets This is the third and final book in the Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series. It was like visiting old friends to read about the characters in the other books. I think I liked this book best of all three, although while I was reading the others, I enjoyed them, too. This one is about Daphne McKinley, a woman who writes dime novels under a male pseudonym. When a man comes to town to find the author responsible for sullying his grandfather's reputation, Daphne must re-think her motives for writing, and for keeping her identity a secret. It's further complicated when she begins to fall for the man. Hatcher never fails to entertain with her stories, bringing out features of real events, like the Spanish flu outbreak and the fear that people felt. This was a very enjoyable book.

Newspaper editorJoshua Crawford has put his life on hold until he can expose the lies that this Morgan fellow has writtenabout the beloved, saintly grandfather who raised him. Once Daphne meets Joshua, it takes a while for herto decide to acknowledge her secret identity.

The popular Hatcher has written another inspirational romance, peppered with Bible verses,which should be a big hit with her many readers.
