The Heart's Pursuit

About the book: 

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.

The Heart's PursuitSilver 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 Thoughts:
The Heart's Pursuit was well written and engaging. There were times it could have been dark and gory, and I deeply appreciated the author not going into those details while still managing to convey the villain's dark side and crimes. The heroine, Silver Matlock, was a strong-willed, yet enjoyable character who had a hard time following orders. You just knew there was going to be trouble whenever Jared Newman told her to do something, and I started looking forward to it.

This was rich in detail and imagery, and there were times I could even taste the gritty sand from the desert. I could easily see this being adapted into a fantastic Western movie. There were a couple red herrings that felt a little flat in presentation, but it didn't detract from the story. It just made me wonder if the author had intended to go into a different direction and changed her mind.

Ms. Hatcher is an excellent story teller and she did keep my imagination engaged the entire book. I enjoyed her writing and will be reading more of her work.
*My thanks to the publisher for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest view. I was not requird it be positive.*
