The Heart's Pursuit

Book description:  "A Colorado beauty abandoned at the altar. A rugged bounty hunter haunted by his past.
In this dramatic historical novel by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher, two wounded hearts join forces in a pursuit across the Old West. Silver Matlock is a Colorado beauty in search of revenge against the man who stranded her at the altar and fled with the remnant of her family's fortune. She is determined to find the man who betrayed her trust. Jared Newman, rugged as the West itself, is relentless in his pursuit of lawless men---but unable to escape his own tragic past. Hardened by his life as a bounty hunter, he must learn to forgive before he loses his soul. Joining forces, the two set out in search of Silver's betrayer. The handsome but embittered Jared finds himself powerfully drawn to the beautiful woman whose drive for justice equals his own. But lack of honesty keeps Silver and Jared from fully trusting each other, even as a shocking revelation intensifies their pursuit of the cunning - and deadly - quarry."
My review:  The book description is a little misleading.  The Heart's Pursuit is a dramatic novel, and the facts from the description are accurate; however, it is an easy read and not nearly as intense as it sounds.  If you have read other books by Robin Lee Hatcher you will find that this book is not typical for her, although it is still a very enjoyable book to read.  I enjoyed the story-line, the characters, and the twist to the plot even though I was able to figure it out.  I don't know if the author intended for the book to "feel real", but it doesn't and that is not necessarily a bad thing.  It is a fun unrealistic story.  If you need a light book to read, The Heart's Pursuit will fit the bill.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
