The Heart’s Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher
Goodreads Summary: 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?
Silver finds herself left at the altar and the man she was to marry has stolen money from her father’s business. If she can not get the money her family may lose everything. Jared is a bounty hunter with a personal mission to hunt down the man who murdered his sister. Silver hires him to find her exfiancé and ends up joining him in the hunt. Can these two find what they are looking for or will revenge win out?
What I liked: The storyline was interesting and I liked the characters. The interacting between the two of them made it funny at times. This book had a good mix of romance and suspense.
What I did not like: I don’t want to give anything away but how who Silver was looking for and who Jared was looking for was resolved seemed a little far-fetched.
Overall this was a good book and I enjoyed reading it. It did have an interesting ending. If you liked western romance you should give this book a try.
