My Review

HEARTBEAT OF THE BITTERROOT was a mix of melancholy and excitement between the heroine's journey through her past and searching for her father, a possible romance, and the danger that is ever lurking for her. Recommended to those who enjoy women's fiction with a touch of romance and suspense.

This story was paced evenly with sections of the heroine recounting stories from her past and sharing information with the reader. Some of the sections felt more like the author was trying to divulge information that wasn't completely necessary to the story, while other sections were really interesting. I really liked the characters, especially Jenna's family. I just wanted more development in the romance and suspense areas so that they felt more like I was experiencing things with the heroine. Having said that, there were some really intense moments, towards the end, enough so to bring all the emotions out.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Overall, an enjoyable story for women's fiction readers.
