A Vote of Confidence by Robin Lee Hatcher

Robin Lee Hatcher is a prolific writer, and while I’ve not read all of her work, I can tell you that I’ve never been disappointed by any titles I’ve chosen from her large body of work. Her latest release, A Vote of Confidence, is set in Bethlehem Springs, Idaho in the year 1915. The automobile is barely beginning to make its appearance, and nationally the women’s suffrage movement is slowly gaining ground. It is against this historical backdrop that Robin Hatcher introduces her very endearing Guinevere Arlington.

Gwen is a forward thinking woman for her time. She has lived most of her life with her mother in New Jersey – separated from her father and twin sister Cleo. She chooses to travel west and live near her father and sister and quickly establishes herself as a piano teacher and part-time writer for the local paper. When Mr. Morgan Mckinley moves to the area to build a heath spa, it seems that the town of Bethlehem Springs will soon be expanding yet again in new and exciting ways. With the rapidly approaching mayoral election at hand, both Gwen and Morgan feel led to step out of their comfort zone and run for public office.

A woman for mayor? Well, why not? But in 1915…it wasn’t such a common thing. Matter of fact, it was pretty unheard of. When you throw in a few crooked townsfolk backing one candidate and state senators backing another, the stage is set for an exciting time! And the intrigue only deepens when the two opposing candidates begin to discover that they have more than political aspirations beginning to grow between them!

A Vote of Confidence is a good read, and will usher in another new title this Fall – Fit To Be Tied. So, if you enjoy romance and a bit of intrigue with a historical setting as a background…look no further. You will be delighted with Robin Lee Hatcher’s latest novel!

Best-selling novelist Robin Lee Hatcher is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. She makes her home in Idaho where she enjoys spending time with her family and her high-maintenance Papillon, Poppet.
