Who says a woman can’t do a man’s job?

Gwen Arlington is happy with her new life in Idaho. She’s teaching piano lessons to darling little angels and getting to know her sister and her father after being raised in the east by her mother. However, Gwen is stunned when her sister suggests that Gwen should run for mayor in Bethlehem Springs. After all, the only candidate running is the town drunkard. While Gwen believes in women’s rights, she’s not sure that she is qualified to run as major—at least until the town newspaper offered to endorse her.

Morgan McKinley is fed up with delays that are keeping him from realizing his dream of opening a hot springs resort. Now it seems that the new mayor will need to sign approval of the resort spa. When Morgan learns that the only candidate is a drunkard, he decides to run for mayor himself. It’d be the best way for him to realize his dreams.

Gwen and Morgan are instantly attracted to each other, but still, they are both running against each other for mayor now, and both are out to prove that they are the most qualified for the position. But the townfolk isn’t sure what to think. Who is better? The town drunk, a woman, or a newcomer?

A VOTE OF CONFIDENCE is the first book in Ms. Hatcher’s new series Sisters of Bethlehem Springs. I enjoyed getting to know Gwen and her sister, as well as Morgan and some of the other characters. The hero and heroine certainly had a lot of conflict as they were both after the same position, and it kept the book interesting.

If you enjoy reading historical fiction, and/or you are a fan of Robin Lee Hatcher, then you certainly won’t want to miss A VOTE OF CONFIDENCE. It is a book is sure to hold your interest. $14.99. 272 pages.
