I love to read Historical Fiction like this new title from Robin Lee Hatcher. When I select books to review, I always choose according to what I already know I love. I know myself well, because I easily read The Heart’s Pursuit in a day. It is an enjoyable read and is very entertaining.
Robin Lee Hatcher tells the story of Silver Matlock who is left waiting at the altar. Blinded by her desire to marry, she missed the truth before her eyes. The groom not only broke her heart, but also made off with her family’s money. In desperation, she seeks out the help of a bounty hunter, Jared Newman. Jared works as a bounty hunter, but his true mission is to find and kill the man who murdered his family. The pair set off across the west on their own agendas, but find something unexpected in each other.
What I loved about this title is the strength Hatcher has written in Silver. She is a lady, but she is also strong and holds her own. Silver never backs down and remains determined. What I disliked about this book is the silence between the characters. Jared barely speaks on their trail ride and I wanted more from him. There is a stated reason for his silence, but I love to watch a romance grow.
Overall, this book is a four star Romance. If you love historical fiction, with action, adventure, love and a handsome hero this book is for you! I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated and all opinions are my own.
