Heart of Gold by Robin Hatcher Book Review

Against Shannon's wishes, love stakes its claim in her heart. Will she discover treasure or treachery?

When Shannon Adair accompanies her minister father to the western gold rush town of Grand Coeur, she's certain she'll never be happy away from her beloved Virginia, even though the South is still gripped in civil war.

Wells Fargo driver Matthew Dubois isn't sure the lovely Shannon belongs in Idaho Territory either, but he is a desperate man. His widowed sister is dying and leaving her young son, Todd, in his care. Matthew wants to return to driving coach for the express company soon—so he'll have to find a wife to look after the boy when he's away.

Shannon is determined not to lose her heart to a man who is neither a Southerner nor a gentleman. But love stakes its claim. Now, will her heart survive learning the truth behind the courtship?

MY REVIEW-I am a big fan of Robin Hatcher's previous books and normally I like a historical novel. But for some reason I just could not get into this book. This book was somewhat a different style for Robin and I felt it was not written as entertaining as the others. I like how her books make you smile and laugh but this one didn't do that as much.

The characters were well written and the plot sounded good. The main female character was very mouthy almost and I hate when a lady is like that. The hero was very manly and I liked him better than Shannon. I finished the book but had to push myself to read it. It may have just been me so I strongly urge you to pick up a copy, you may really enjoy it:) Looking forward to Robin's next book but glad it is part of another series.

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.

i also like historical books but I also agree with you on the statement you dont like mouthy women, they just dont seem to fit in this kind of book. I have never read any of her books but if they make you laugh and smile they must be good books
