Poor Emmie! This book’s title truly does reflect what has happened to her. She has been betrayed in one of the worst ways. Played the fool and now feeling ostracized, she chooses to make the journey to Wyoming to hopefully begin again.
This novella does not have as much danger or suspense as books two and three. It is primarily the story of Emmie trying to start over after her heart has been crushed. Overwhelmed with what has happened to her, she decides that she can’t risk opening herself up to another man. I think the author did a very good job of portraying the betrayal, the embarrassment, and the feelings of helplessness that Emmie finds herself dealing with. I am really looking forward to book five in the series. (4 stars)

About the book:
Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.
When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered an awful truth: her deceased husband was a bigamist. And what’s more, the home she thought she inherited never belonged to her at all.
Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers.
But then she meets Isaac Liddle, a handsome soldier with a kind heart. When he begins to court her, Emmie wonders whether she could ever really be his—and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.
