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?
Review: It has been quite some time since I read a Robin Lee Hatcher book. I’ve been wanting to read A Heart’s Pursuit for a while now. For me, it was just okay. The characters were fine, but nothing spectacular. The plot was simple but solid. There wasn’t much in the way of romance. The characters, Silver and Jared, realized they loved each other near the end of the novel but Jared never really courted Silver.
What I liked about The Heart’s Pursuit was the pacing. Something was always happening, which kept it exciting and interesting. One character I would have liked to have seen better developed was Dean. He was a young boy who came in too late to be really well-developed.
It wasn’t the greatest or deepest book in the world but it was fast-paced and entertaining. It would be a good summer read. I give A Heart’s Pursuit 3 out of 5 stars.
