A Heart's Danger by Colleen Coble Review

On the brink of war with the Sioux, a young woman risks everything to expose the betrayal threatening the man she loves.

Christmas is coming, and the air at Fort Laramie has turned cold . . . but relations with the Sioux have turned colder. As tensions between soldiers and natives approach a tipping point, Ben Croftner and Jessica DuBois prepare a trap for Rand Campbell.

Bitter from rejection and backfired plans, Croftner has enlisted the help of Rand's new fiancee to keep Rand from ever returning to Sarah Montgomery . . . for whom his heart clearly still yearns.

Sarah is simply trying to move on with her life at Fort Laramie, but doing so under the watchful eyes of both Campbell--the man whose love she craves--and Croftner--the man whose lies have cost her everything. Will Rand fall victim to the conspiracy and go through with his wedding? Or will he declare his love for Sarah and make good on the promises that brought her into the rugged western territories?

Published May 2015. Third book in the A Journey of the Heart series.
3 stars

Wow this one was pretty action packed wasn't it? This is the third addition to a six book series that Colleen Coble is publishing. It's a series that she wrote a while back that is only now being published, it's a series inspired by her brother's death. While they're a bit shorter than the length of books I normally read, they're still interesting and almost like a bite-sized read, great for an afternoon or cozy night in bed.

In this book a lot of things happened, it's quite actioned packed and a lot of things were resolved. It almost makes me wonder what is left to happen. Two men want Sarah and one nearly tricked her into marrying him in the first book. He has a dastardly plan that comes to light and put into action in A Heart's Danger. I think I flew through this book the quickest because there was so many things occurring.  

I thought that the plot was good, there's something happening nearly every chapter so you certainly don't get bored. The world-building is very authentic. I believe the author said in a forward that she went out and visited where her brother had lived and it shows in the writing. The world described in the writing is easy to imagine and your taken back in time to the wild west. 

Overall, the romance was sweet, the plot was fast-paced, and the writing takes you back in time to just after the civil war. If you like Colleen Coble or are looking for a Janette Oke sort of book, I'd recommend it! The only issue I think you'd find is that things seem to move very quickly because it's a rather short book (only 100 pages or so)...but other than that it's a nice a read :)

  1. I thought this book looked interesting but never picked it up. I guess that's because I'm in the phase where Lynette Eason's books are my current happy place. Lovely book review though!


If you have book news or anything!
I'd love to hear about it =)
