"Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart. When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband's home, she discovered a terrible truth. A woman she's never met reveals that she and Emmie shared the same husband and that the bigamist had never divorced his first wife. The home and farm are not Emmie's property after all. Suddenly displaced and powerless, Emmie realizes she can't stay in Wabash, Indiana, any longer. She makes for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning await her. But when she arrives, she discovers she's carrying a child, conceived before her husband's death. Was the new start she'd hoped for only a mirage? At Fort Laramie, a soldier named Isaac Liddle begins to court Emmie, prompting her to wonder whether she could ever really be his-and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man's baby."
A Heart's Betrayal is the 4th book in the Journey of the Heart series that was author Colleen Coble's first series and has been rereleased. Each of these books are quick, easy reads at a little over 100 pages each. As I have mentioned in my previous reviews of this series, I do not usually like short series books. I would rather read them all at once then a little at a time, but this series has me hooked and I will finish reading the entire thing. I actually had wondered how the series was going to carry on because it came to a pretty good stopping point at the end of the last book. In A Heart's Betrayal, we get a new character and a new set of problems. This book ends of course with a lot of details hanging because there are still two more books left in the series. So, we will just have to read on to find out what happens next!
