A Heart's Betrayal {a Lifuse Blog Tour review}

Every month, I've been posting about Colleen Coble's A Journey of the Heart series.  This month, we're up to book four, A Heart's Betrayal.

I have liked this series so far, but haven't been wildly enthusiastic.  This book started off introducing a brand new character, Emmie.  Emmie is the sister of the bad guy from the first half of the series, and I like her.

Emmie has just lost her husband, after only a couple months of marriage.  She's distraught, but things are about to get worse as she finds out that she wasn't really married.  He already had a wife and child.

Emmie really has nowhere to turn, at least nowhere respectable.  So she ends up heading out to Fort Laramie, to help Sarah Montgomery.  A fresh start, somewhere new, where her non-marriage isn't known.

Only nothing can ever be that simple.

I really enjoyed this story, including the characters from the first three books.  Now that everyone is happily married, they are far more likable! 

Emmie just tugs at me.  She has a no-good scoundrel of a brother, a bigamist for a husband, and now the system leaves her with few choices.  No wonder she is bitter and untrusting when it comes to men. 

For the first time in this series, I am eagerly looking forward to the next book, and I'm guessing it will be waiting for me when I get home.


Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier in Fort Laramie, Wyoming, but will her big secret drive them apart? Find out in book four, A Heart's Betrayal, of Colleen Coble's A Journey of the Heart series. Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers.
