A Heart’s Betrayal, by Colleen Coble, is book four of a six-part Journey of the Heart series that takes place during the mid 1800s. It’s an emotionally charged read and difficult to put down.
“This is going to come as quite a shock to you, and I’m truly sorry for that.” ~ A Heart’s Betrayal
Emmie's late husband had secrets and wasn’t the man she’d once though he was. That troubling truth is compounded by the fact that what she thought was left to her doesn’t belong to her at all! To escape the shame and embarrassment, she hopes to start over in Laramie, Wyoming—but she soon discovers the past isn’t so easy to leave behind.
I really like this unique ‘mini’ story series concept. Each installment is easily read in a day, but though the stories are short, they lack nothing in content. Brimming with action, adventure, and love, the characters are flawed, believable, and sympathetic. I am sucked into the series.
Even though it’s unconventional (and totally unplanned to read this series out of order) each installment has been full and interesting on its own. I’ve grown to love these characters and can’t wait to delve further in their lives.
I’ve read other works by Colleen Coble and I’ve never been disappointed. From the settings to the character arcs, I love every aspect of her writings, and can’t wait to read the complete Journey of the Heart series.
