What Matters Most ~ Review

What Matters Most
Texas Gold Collection #4
By Kellie Coated Gilbert

Leta Breckenridge gave up her dreams for the future to care for her mother. Unfortunately even though she has the skills needed to perform any number of jobs, without a degree that she couldn't afford Leta's future looks bleak.  With money tight, Leta has no hope of holding even much less getting ahead where her finances are concerned.  So a temporary position at local PR firm seems like a gift.

An unexpected friendship with up-and-coming Nathan Emerson is a pleasant surprise in Leta's life. With her personal life taking a back-seat to real life, he could be the one. Just one problem, everyone expects Nate to run for governor of Texas and a life in the political spotlight has never been on Leta's to-do list. And then there is the highly professional lawyer he's been dating for the last couple years.

But when Leta unexpectedly gets caught up in the other side of the political world she is about to experience a world few have or ever would want to experience.

Of all the books in the Texas Gold Collection I really think that this one is my favorite.  Leta is someone I could identify with - her struggles to make ends meet, her love and care of her mother, and her inner struggle to do what was right.  Nate was the kind of politician I think we would all like to see run.

Fans of Kelly Coates Gilbert will enjoy this newest offering from her. If you haven't read her work before don't worry this series is stand-alone, the only common factor in this series is the setting - Texas.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:
Just when she can't take it anymore, Leta finally catches a break. 
But when things seem too good to be true, 

they often are.

Finding her dream job went right out the window when Leta Breckenridge had to quit school to help care for her mother suffering from dementia. When a delinquent account may force her mother into a less desirable facility, Leta is thrilled to land a high-paying job at an Austin public relations firm. But her seemingly ideal job turns into a nightmare when she learns the firm is a front for a political opposition organization--and that the research she's been collecting will be used against Nathan Emerson, the handsome senator she's swiftly falling in love with.

Nathan is a rising political star being pressured to run a bid to unseat the current governor of Texas. He's already in a relationship with a woman much better suited to be a politician's wife, but he's never met anyone like Leta. Could this feisty woman hold the key to his heart--and his future?

With emotional depth and keen insight into what drives us, Kellie Coates Gilbert offers a salient story that calls us to consider what we value most in this life.
