The Heart’s Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher
Zondervan, May 13, 2014
A jilted bride desperate to save her family from ruin.
A bounty hunter seeking vengeance for a ravaged past.
An arduous trek toward justice–or redemption.
Silver Matlock and Jared Newman know traveling together is a bad idea. Bad for Silver’s already tarnished reputation in her small Colorado town. Bad for bounty hunter Jared’s secret, single minded mission for revenge. But Silver is determined to track down the rogue who left her at the altar and stole the last remnant of her father’s fortune. And Jared’s in a hurry to hunt down the murderer who destroyed his family–even if Silver is too distractingly beautiful for comfort.
The pair takes off over mountain and desert, past bleak homesteads and raw mining towns, hot on the trail of the two villains who took what wasn’t theirs to take. Soon supplies dwindle, secrets emerge, and suspicion leave Silver and Jared at odds when they need each other most. To confront an enemy deadlier than desert rattlesnakes and rocky cliffs, Silver and Jared must learn to forgive and trust and face the question they haven’t dared voice: What happens next?
I read this book whilst holidaying in the USA. I started it at about 9.30pm and finished it at 1am! I loved it and couldn’t put the book down. It’s a great adventure through the wild west, filled with characters who you want to ride around with. This was my first book by this author and it was lovely to read something well written, engaging and a pleasure to read. Well done Robin Lee Hatcher on a great book! I’m looking forward to reading more from you!
