Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble*A Review
ABOUT Lonestar Angel By Colleen Coble
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.

I just love, love, love this book. Colleen Coble is one of my favorite authors and this book didn’t disappoint. I was taken in by the very first paragraph.
The characters are very realistic and loveable, but the action and adventure outweighed all of the other parts of the book. What was even more wonderful was the special love story.
Eden and Clay had a baby and she was kidnapped and believed to be dead. So Eden left Clay and didn’t want anything to do with him.
Then the wonderful happens Clay came back and said that their daughter wasn’t dead. So they set off on an adventure to find their daughter. Bad things start happening to Eden, but why?
You will be on the edge of your seat as they have fun, get into more danger than you could believe, how they find out who did it and why.
Both Clay and Eden have many secrets in their past and how they put walls up to keep everyone out. The most wonderful part is how they both came to the Lord and are now letting Him direct their paths. This book answers the questions, will they try to make their marriage work, will they find their kidnapped daughter, will they let the Lord lead them in every way, will they find out who did the kidnapping and who keeps causing Eden trouble.
I really love this book. Lonestar Angel is a 5-star book for sure.
