A light western adventure -- The Heart's Pursuit

Robin Lee Hatcher's The Heart's Pursuit is a light western adventure that makes for a quick, fun read.

The story has a taste of the old TV westerns to it -- the bounty hunter chasing down the bad guys, passing through towns, spending lots of days in the saddle and nights on the hard ground under the stars.  Of course, the pretty girl traveling with the bounty hunter might not have been standard fare to those shows but definitely made this story more interesting.

Silver and Jared were both characters I enjoyed meeting.  Watching them work through the baggage they carried from past hurts and trying to navigate their way together through difficult circumstances made for a very good story.  Some of the twists of the story were pretty predictable, but others caught me off guard.  My only disappointment was that the resolution of the greatest conflict seemed to be anti-climactic and fell a little flat.  All in all, though, I would recommend this as a very entertaining read from Robin Lee Hatcher.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the book

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?
