A Heart's Obsession - Kindle Giveaway, Blog Tour, and Author Chat Party with Colleen Coble

About the book:
A Heart's Obsession (Thomas Nelson, April 2015)

Will Sarah's journey west lead her back into the arms of the one man she can trust?

When her father succumbs to a long illness, Sarah Montgomery is freed from duty to family. At last she can be with the love of her life, Rand Campbell, who has gone out west to Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Sarah and her younger brother Joel make the arduous journey filled with hope.

But at Fort Laramie, the reception Sarah meets isn't what she had hoped for. Her friend Amelia is thrilled to have her, but Rand seems to be in the clutches of Jessica DuBois, the scheming daughter of the post commander.

Sarah resolves to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . especially when her ex-fianc├ę Ben Croftner arrives in Wyoming, obsessed with having her back in his arms.

My review:

This is the second installment in the Journey of the Heart series and I liked this second story more than the first. It was interesting to learn more about life at Fort Laramie and the different Native American groups that lived near it.  It was so sad to learn how some of them, especially women, were treated by the white men.  I liked that Sarah was asked to teach some of the children English and other things, though there wasn't much done with that in the story.  I was frustrated with Rand again as he seems to have moved on from Sarah quickly.  I couldn't believe Ben showed up; he just doesn't take a hint.  I felt sorry for Sarah, but at least she's out from under her older brother's clutches.  I admired her determination to treat Jessica nicely, no matter how she was treated by her.  There was some suspense as Sarah gets involved in a domestic situation and tries to help someone.  I'm definitely interested to read what happens next, but these smaller novellas seem like a more expensive way to read a book than just having it in a normal format.  I would recommend it if you like historical fiction.

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
