When Lara's boyfriend breaks up with her, nearly ruining her very important court case, and leaves her devastated, she takes her best friend's advice and takes a trip away from everything to clear her head, regroup, so she will be ready to go back to the law firm fighting for those difficult cases she always tries. The trip high in the Wyoming mountains just might work. But Lara is a city girl. The cabin is so far into the mountains that there is no one close by at this time of the year. How will she ever make it on her own? And especially with the wild mountain men she is warned about by a couple of people who live there.

The Heart of the Mountain: A Sweet and Clean Small Town Romance by Kay Wolfe is indeed in the heart of the wild mountains in Wyoming. Wolfe creates characters that will warm your heart yet surprise you. The descriptions of the mountains are very detailed. The details of the cabin Lara is staying in with the outstanding views are breathtaking and the trails throughout the mountain tell of the harsh but beautiful land. The cover of the book goes well with the descriptions in the book. But as Lara ventures out, she discovers just how hard and dangerous the mountain is, several times in fact, when one of the mountain men, Chase, comes to her rescue. I was surprised that Laura wasn't afraid of being on the mountain all alone, being the big city girl she is, but she is really happy there. So much so that she may not want to leave when the time comes, she is enjoying herself so much. The Heart of the Mountain is a short read and it goes by pretty fast. This is a nice read when you don't have the time for a full-length book.
