I received several books a month to review here on this blog. Most them don't get my immediate attention and the books end up being piled up until I find time to read them. However, there are a few authors that I do read right away and one of them happens to be Colleen Coble.

The fourth installment in the Journey of the Heart mini-series was released to bookstores this month. Unlike the previous novel that focused on Sarah Montgomery, this sequel switches the main character to Emmie Croftner - the sister to the first three installment's villain (Ben). Emmie thought she had the perfect life when she recently married an up-and-coming lawyer Monroe Courtney, well, that is until she received word of her husband's death. She's doesn't have much time to mourn before she learns of Monroe's debt he left behind and his little white lie - he's actually married to somebody else.

With nowhere to life and not much money, Emmie packs her bags and travels to Fort Laramie, Wyoming, hoping that her old friend Sarah Montgomery will take her in. While it's somewhat awkward at first, Sarah and Emmie rekindle their friendship. Then the unthinkable happens - Emmie learns that she's pregnant with Monroe's child.

I was a bit surprised that the author would switch main characters in the middle of the series, but I quickly took a likening Emmie and instantly felt sorry for her. At around 100 pages, the story moves along pretty fast and before long Emmie is reunited with the main character from the other books. Overall, A Heart's Betrayal is a bittersweet and heartbreaking sequel that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
