Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble

There are not many books that I want to read again as soon as I finish it.  This was one of the few.  I can’t say LOVE enough!  It grabbed my attention right away and held it all the way to the last page.  There are good guys and bad guys and you never are really sure who is who until the end.  It is a story that will keep you guessing and tug at your heart at the same time.    Here’s what the publisher says about it: 

"Eden’s hope is rekindled when Clay delivers astounding news: their daughter has been found.
Five years ago Eden and Clay Larson’s baby was stolen and never found. Eden blamed herself, Clay lost himself in work. Their young and rocky marriage ended. Or so Eden thought.

Now Eden’s moved to a new town. She’s found faith and is trying to rebuild her life. She’s even dating again—a sweet guy who plans to marry her someday. But then Clay arrives out of the blue and delivers shocking news: they’re still married. What’s more, Clay has been searching for Brianna all this time. And he believes he’s found her: their daughter is in Bluebird, Texas, at a youth ranch.

To uncover the truth, Eden and Clay sign on as counselors at Bluebird Ranch. Working together, they rediscover their love for each other. But danger is closing in—Eden, Clay, and their young charges are in jeopardy. As they fight to save their family, Eden realizes that God has been fighting for them all along. And His plans are for a more abundant life than they’ve dared to hope."

The characters are very believable and the circumstances they find themselves in are realistic. You are reminded that in real life, bad things do happen to good people, but God is always walking with us.  There are many twists and turns in the plot.  The only thing I had a slight problem with was the number of characters to keep track of.  But, in all honesty, the author does such a good job of introducing and explaining them, that it's only a very small annoyance.  This is a clean, suspenseful romance full of mystery and faith.

I’ve read other Colleen Coble books and really liked them but of all the ones I’ve read, this is the best!!  5 stars out of 5!
Don't trust my humble an exerpt for yourself!

  1. I'm so glad you loved it, Mary! Thanks for the great review!

  2. Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble grabs your attention from page one and doesn't let you go. You are introduced to Eden and Clay Larson who have been estranged for five years. Their baby, Brianna was kidnapped and never found. Eden left her marriage to Clay and ran to Indiana to escape the memories. Clay never stopped searching even when the police pronounce baby Brianna to be dead. After a lead that Clay thinks is the real deal, he goes to Eden and tells her that they are still married and he needs her to come with him to work as counselors at Bluebird Ranch in Texas. They will be working with foster children, one of whom he thinks is their daughter. As they search for answers to what happened to Brianna, they find their way back to each other. But danger is never far. This book is jam packed with suspense and mystery. You feel for these characters that have been though a horrible tragedy and still cling to the hope of reuniting with their little girl. I admire their faith and determination. This book is well written and readers will not be disappointed.
