Review: A Heart's Home by Colleen Coble

Book Description "This Christmas, a tragic loss at Fort Laramie ushers in hope and healing. When a young mother dies after giving birth at Fort Laramie, Emmie Croftner is shaken by the death of her dear friend-and reminded of the dangers of childbirth. She won't be able to hide her own pregnancy much longer. She's dreading the day that Isaac Liddle, the handsome soldier she adores, discovers her secret. Then the young infant's father offers a solution: Emmie should marry him so the child can have a family. With the Sioux Wars threatening soldier and civilian alike, a ready-made family could be the answer to Emmie's prayers for safety. But at what cost to her heart-and Isaac's?"

A Heart's Home is the 6th and final book in the Journey of the Heart series.  Each book in this series are short at just over 100 pages each.  The first 3 books in the series focus on Rand and Sarah while the last 3 books focus on Emmie and Isaac.  Jake and Amelia are other main characters that appear in all of the books.

A Heart's Home being the last book in the series is supposed to tie everything together and bring resolution to the different conflicts.  Throughout the last three books dealing with Emmie, we find out she has a secret and she has this fear of what will happen when Isaac finds out.  I was expecting a big moment when this issue was resolved, but there wasn't one.  Also, in Book Five we are told that a character that we thought had died in an earlier book did not so I expected he would return for Book 6, but he does not.  He is mentioned in the Epilogue.

Overall Journey of the Heart was an enjoyable series to read.  I liked the characters and these short little books were packed full of action, adventure, faith, and romance.
