Book Review: Heart Track
I first reviewed Tracking Jane: Waiting For Shadow back in May, 2015.
I received an ARC (Advanced Reader’s Copy) of Heart Track.
I liked Mr. Suastegui’s style then and I like it just as much now. He shows that, contrary to popular belief, men can be just as observant as women with his descriptions of people and places in his books.
I was a little leery at first because I haven’t read the books in the series between Waiting For Shadow and Heart Track. My leeriness was unfounded because the book can be read as a stand alone although knowing the back story is useful.
Jane is learning, right along with the Mexican orphans she has taken into her home, how to trust again. As we all know: Once trust is lost it sometimes can never be recovered again and even if it can, it is sometimes close to impossible to do so. Heart Track teaches us that even though something looks impossible it is possible to achieve your goal.
Jane’s journey is by no means easy, but it needs to happen if she wishes to be happy with her life and those in her life. Her journey takes her back to her roots; back home to where she grew up, to the land her Father owned which is now in her brother’s hands. It takes her back to a time when her Mother was still alive, to a time when she was happy.
Even though her trip home is supposed to be a simple vacation Jane still finds herself, and her dogs, embroiled in a government conspiracy.
They say ‘All’s well that ends well’ but is it? Is everything truly well Jane Murphy McMurtry?
