The Heart's Pursuit Review

In The Heart's Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher, Silver Matlock has been left at the alter and her parents have been robbed by her former fiancĂ©.  In desperation, she hires a bounty hunter and secretly joins him as they search for Silver's ex-fiance.  However, Jared Newman has his own agenda - finding the man who murdered his family years ago.  As they hunt for these criminals, feelings start to develop between them.

I enjoyed this book.  I felt like it started out a little slow for me, but the plot picked up toward the middle of the book, and the ending was good. The storyline was interesting, and I liked how the two main character's separate goals end up intertwining as the book goes on.  The characters were likable, though I would have liked to read more of the characters' histories, to get to know them better.

The one thing that bothered me - and I don't want to say too much to avoid giving anything away - was that I felt like the villain's character wasn't consistent toward the end. I just would have expected such a ruthless killer to choose to act differently at the climax of the book.  I also felt like a decision that Silver made toward the end of the book was a little over-the-top foolish, and because of that it didn't feel realistic to me.

I think I am overanalyzing though, because overall I liked the book.  This was just a light, old west romance. It was an enjoyable read, not too deep, with a happy ending (and I always like a happy ending)!

Note: I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
