GoodyNDAge: 55-65Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5disappointedMarch 28, 2018GoodyNDAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Was disappointed with this book as it doesn't finish the story in any way, it just expects one to order the next book. To me it is like eight chapters out of the middle of a book.
colorsuePinellas County, FLAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Part 2 of 6 partsJuly 19, 2015colorsuePinellas County, FLAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This is a reprint, part 1 of a 6 part story. Each part is less than 100 pages. I've paid $35.94 for one or possibly 2 books divided into 6 books. This could easily have been printed as 1 or 2 books but might have sold for less than $35.94 since it's not an original but a reprint. Book 2 starts by repeating part of book 1. I'm feeling taken advantage of by a marketing strategy. It might be good if you wait for a sale before buying these.
There's no denying Colleen Coble is an excellent author, but I don't like the way we loyal readers are being treated with these mini-books and the manner of their re-release. The story line is engaging as is always true of Colleen Coble's writing. You must have the 1st 3 books to piece the beginning story together, which seems to wrap up nicely after #3, but after that I can't comment because I haven't read books 4-6 yet.
SaraAge: Under 18Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Decent read, but...June 14, 2015SaraAge: Under 18Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0What I liked: There is good, flowing writing and interesting characters. The plot is pretty good, there are certainly some intense moments that had me wincing and reading quicker to find out what would happen. I liked the setting too, out west where there are still troubles between the Native American tribes there and the settlers coming from the East. It was more interesting than where the first book was set. I also think that it's a great time period. It's just after the civil war, I think it's kind of a turning point for the country. There was a lot of change. And a lot of change still coming. So yes, I enjoyed the setting. As characters go, I related to Sarah the most. I like Rand, but I find it hard to see where he's coming from sometimes haha...but he is honorable and a good guy. :)
What I didn't like: When compared to her other books it falls a little short. It could also be because they're smaller books and the writing style has to be a bit more fast-paced, but it seems like there is less build-up and details.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I liked the setting and I thought it was more interesting than the first book. But, because sometimes there has to be one, I prefer Coble's longer books because of their complexity and how they're longer, more to enjoy you know? I would still recommend this series to people, because it's good. But I'd not hold back from telling them that I prefer some of her other series more.
IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Sighworthy, but not in a good wayMay 1, 2015IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2Lieutenant Rand Campbell left his intended in Wabash, Indiana when he was posted to Fort Laramie, Wyoming, because she wouldnt leave her family. The prospect of a forced marriage to liar Ben Croftner gives Sarah Montgomery the push she needs to leave her family and find Randand marry him. But when she arrives at Fort Laramie, she finds things arent as she expected
I didn't enjoy the first novella in this collection because the publishers description gave away all the key plot points. They didnt make quite the same mistake with this second book, but the description still covers the first two-thirds of the story (although this time I made sure I didnt actually read the book description, just in case).
Im still not sold on the series. Rand is almost the perfect man, except for one error of judgement about the true character of the pretty Miss Jessica DuBois. Sarah was too wishy-washy for my tastes in the first book (A Hearts Disguise), but seems to have grown a spine on the trip to Wyoming. She also has a respect for the local Indian population that seems a little uncharacteristic for a sheltered woman of her time.
The minor characters were, if anything, worse. We didnt get the opportunity to get to know either Ben Croftner or Jessica DuBois in any detail, which meant they came across as clichs. The plot moved along too quickly, in that the characters (Rand, in particular) had dramatic changes in their feelings without any logic or explanation. The other problem was the end: it was very abrupt, as though it was just cut off. Perhaps it wasafter all, there are another four novellas in the series after this one.

ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Continue Sarah and Rand's Journey in this next installment of the Journey of the Heart series!April 29, 2015ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A Heart's Obsession is the second book in Colleen Coble's Journey of the Heart series. It picks up right where the first book, A Heart's Disguise, leaves off. Rand has left their small town of Wabash, Indiana, again. After Sarah's father passes away from his long time illness, she decides to pick up her life and go after her one true love.
In true Coble style, though, nothing goes as planned. Sarah gets the surprise of her life when she gets to Fort Laramie. Can Sarah trust the Lord with the new reality of her life? I honestly didn't like Rand in this story. He came off as cold and compassionless to Sarah's plight. Hopefully, that changes in the books to come. Trouble follows Sarah to Fort Laramie in the form of Ben Croftner. I will be interested to see what happens later on with him. He is the true definition of evil and scary.
Overall, I really enjoyed this latest installment to the Journey of the Heart series and look forward to the next one!
