A Heart's Disguise {a Litfuse Blog Tour review}

Lately, I seem to have a thing for reading books that involve the main character losing a parent.  Though in A Heart's Disguise, by Colleen Coble, Sarah's father is dying.  It hasn't happened yet.

This title is the first in the six-book Journey of the Heart series.  These short (very short!) books can be read in a sitting or two.  Even for normal people.  Since I can read almost anything in a single sitting.

From the publisher:
In the aftermath of the Civil War, a young woman searches for her lost love at the edge of the West.

The Civil War has destroyed Sarah Montgomery's marriage before it's even begun.

After Sarah receives word that her fiancé, Rand Campbell, has been killed fighting for the Union, her brothers and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to Ben Croftner---despite her strong misgivings. But when Sarah finds out that Rand is in fact alive---and that Ben Croftner knew it---she indignantly breaks off the engagement and goes in search of Rand.

But Ben Croftner does not take rejection lightly---and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. When Sarah is abducted by her treacherous fiancé, Rand finally comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and intends to take her there as his wife.

But could Sarah leave her dying father's side for the love of her life? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?

I've been fascinated lately by post-Civil War times, and the fact that this book is set right after the end of the war intrigues me.

Colleen Coble writes realistic characters, though I have to say that after this first title, I don't really like anyone in the story.  Since A Heart's Obsession just arrived in my home, I know I'll be reading to find out what happens next.  I'm hoping I'll start to warm up to at least some of the people in this one.

I'm sure I will.  Sarah has serious potential.  She seems to care a lot about the welfare of her family and the folks around her.

I am looking forward to reading the next installment.

In the midst of end-of-war celebrations, Sarah discovers her betrothed was keeping a devastating secret in Colleen Coble's A Heart's Disguise. Will Sarah leave her dying father’s side for the only man she’s ever loved? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?
