The Heart’s Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher ISBN 978-0-310-25927-5 Zondervan

In a period of less than three months, the lives of Silver Matlock and Jared Newman changed in ways they could not have foreseen. The Heart’s Pursuit, by Robin Lee Hatcher, opens in May 1873 in the small Colorado town of Twin Springs. Jared, a bounty hunter, first lays eyes on Silver as she runs from the church on what was to be her wedding day. The man she was to marry had run out on her after stealing money and jewelry from her family and to make matters worse her family stood to lose their business and home. Silver felt responsible for her family’s plight and she will do anything to find the man who betrayed her and to hopefully recover what he stole. She hired Jared to look for her former fiancé. What she didn’t know was that Jared was also looking for someone- a man who had taken his family from him. What Jared never expected after he accepted the job was that Silver would accompany him in his quest.
Silver and Jared make unlikely traveling pair. In actuality, they are not so different from each other as they each had a goal. It’s just that their goals were highly personal. Their journey is perilous as they travel over rough terrain and further complicated by the tension between them. Each has their own issues. Can they find a way to put aside their suspicions, insecurities and need for revenge? Do they have a future?
I found the novel to be well written and engaging. An interesting collection of characters, a strong plot and a few surprises make this a highly readable novel.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review
