Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publishing Date: May 5, 2015
On the brink of war with the Sioux, a young woman risks everything to expose the betrayal threatening the man she loves.
Christmas is coming, and the air at Fort Laramie has turned cold . . . but relations with the Sioux have turned colder. As tensions between soldiers and natives approach a tipping point, Ben Croftner and Jessica DuBois prepare a trap for Rand Campbell.
Bitter from rejection and backfired plans, Croftner has enlisted the help of Rand's new fiancee to keep Rand from ever returning to Sarah Montgomery . . . for whom his heart clearly still yearns.
Sarah is simply trying to move on with her life at Fort Laramie, but doing so under the watchful eyes of both Campbell--the man whose love she craves--and Croftner--the man whose lies have cost her everything. Will Rand fall victim to the conspiracy and go through with his wedding? Or will he declare his love for Sarah and make good on the promises that brought her into the rugged western territories?

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Buy a copy today! 

My Thoughts:
***This review will contain spoilers for books one and two. Proceed with caution***
Let me use a Minnesotan phrase here: Uff-da! There is a LOT of action in this episode. Deaths, clashes with Indians, kidnappings, ice skating. Looking back, all I can wonder is how did so much happen in so few pages?

Ben Croftner is still up to his evil, creepy tactics, but this time he ropes in Rand's fiancee Jessica who is more than ready to be rid of Sarah. Coble then takes us on a fast paced, crazy adventure. If this series is six books long, this one feels like the climax.

We end on a happy, hopeful note. However, it also makes me wonder what books four, five and six could be about. Establishing a life on the frontier? That would be such a different direction than what the series has already been. Seeing as I have book four on my nightstand, I don't have to wait long to find out :)

'Episode' three delivers another satisfying read in the 'Journey of the Heart' series. I wouldn't stop at book two if I were you! 3.5 stars
