Book Review: A Heart's Betrayal by Colleen Coble

I have so far enjoyed reading Colleen Coble’s Journey of the Heart series as it followed Rand and Sarah Montgomery through ups and downs and misunderstandings and finally into happy matrimony.  The fourth book in the series,  A Heart’s Betrayal is my least favorite so far.  While it is nice to see a love story developing for Isaac Liddle (the soldier that Sarah turned down in order to marry Rand), it seemed like an awkaward segue into the story.  Emmie is the sister of Ben and Labe Croftner, but I don’t remember her even being mentioned in any of the previous books.  There is also a small timeline issue that confused me.  Emmie and Monroe met one day when her father was being difficult, courted for six weeks, and had been married for three months.  But on the next page it is mentioned that her father has been dead for three years.  I don’t think that works out. 

I will probably read the last book in the series, because I’ve read the description of it, and it looks interesting.  But overall, I think this storyline could have been finished after the third installment.  Colleen Coble is still one of my favorite authors, and I don’t think this is a true testament to her work.


Happy Reading!



I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own and a favorable review was not required.
