The Heart's Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher
Synopsis: 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?
My review: Robin hit the mark again with this book. I am a fan of historical fiction set in this time period so it was a fun and quick read for me. The characters were very well developed and Robin has a way of making you feel as if you were a part of the story. To me this book had a sense of adventure and kept me turning the pages. I really liked Silver and her tomboy type of attitude. It was also fun to go along on the journey with Jared and Silver as they learned about themselves and the real meaning of their journey together. I suggest this book to fans of western, christian fiction and a little romance.
