Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble Book Review

Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble

From the publisher:

Eden’s hope is rekindled when Clay delivers astounding news: their baby girl has been found.
Five years ago Eden and Clay Larson’s baby was stolen. When they went to pay the ransom, what happened changed their lives forever—the kidnapper’s car with Baby Brianna inside sunk deep into the river. 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 named Kent who plans to marry her. But then Clay arrives out of the blue and delivers shocking news: he never signed their divorce papers, so 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. All five little girls there are the right age—he’s just not sure which one is Brianna. Or how she survived.
To uncover the truth, Eden and Clay sign on as counselors at Bluebird Ranch. They move into small quarters in the bunkhouse and oversee the kids as they try to find out more. Working together, they rediscover their love for each other. But danger is closing in—Eden, Clay, and all 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’d ever hoped.
My Review:

I was excited to read another book from Colleen Coble.  She has a way of keeping me interested and they are usually fun stories.

Sadly, this book was not one of my favorites from her.  It lacked substance.  I felt the characters were just silly at times.  (Leaving with a ex-husband when you are about to marry another man - was way out there!)  There was no real substance. I was highly disappointed.

I will read her books again.  Her first three books in the Lonestar series were great reads - hopefully she will gain in her next book what was missing in this one.

I will say the cover is very pretty.  This book was a stand-alone.  You do not need to read the whole series to understand what was happening.
Blessings to you!  You are loved!
