I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.
When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered a terrible truth. A woman she’s never met reveals that she and Emmie shared the same husband and that the bigamist had never divorced his first wife. The home and farm are not Emmie’s property after all.
Suddenly displaced and powerless, Emmie realizes she can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana, any longer. She makes for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning await her. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s carrying a child, conceived before her husband’s death. Was the new start she’d hoped for only a mirage?
At Fort Laramie, a soldier named Isaac Liddle begins to court Emmie, prompting her to wonder whether she could ever really be his–and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.
A Heart’s Betrayal is book 4 to the Journeys of the Heart novella series by Colleen Coble and I have been reading and reviewing this whole series, one per month. While I am glad that the author finally took her focus off of the main character of the last 3 novellas, I have grown very tired of the setting and find it difficult to engage with the new main character. The writing is great, like always 🙂 but I just don’t care for the story-line nor the setting much anymore. The covers are all so beautifully designed and the colors pop out in such an eye-catching way that I just want these books to be on display 24-7! This semi-negative review will by no means stop me from supporting Colleen as some of her other books still remain as my favorites, I just do not care for this particular novella series. I will however continue to read and review the last two books because I am already committed to them 🙂
Thanks for reading my review and have a blessed day!
