Lonestar Angel

From the back of the book: 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.

My review: As I began reading this book, I was quickly reminded why I enjoy books written by Colleen Coble. I was immediately pulled into the story and didn't want to put it down. In fact, I finished this book the same day I started it. Ms. Coble has woven a story of intrigue that will keep you guessing. I was able to put together some of the pieces as I read, but was not able to put it all together. It was a fast-moving plot with plenty to keep you on the edge of your seat. Her characters are down-to-earth and believable. An underlying message of trust could be found throughout the book but not in a "preachy" way. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and even though it is the fourth book in a series, it can stand alone. I do look forward to reading the first three! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
