Review of Lonestar Angel

Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble is the latest edition to the Lonestar series. It's been five years since Eden and Clay Larson's baby girl was stolen, presumed dead, and never found. It's also been five years since Eden and Clay Larson's marriage fell apart. Now, Eden has found faith in God and is moving on with her life in the city, in a cozy romance dating a guy she may soon marry. However, Clay suddenly shows up in her life revealing that they are still married and that they're daughter is still alive. Still uncomfortable with each other, the two decide to move to Bluebird, Texas to serve as counselors to the youth ranch where their daughter is staying. Little do they know the danger and love that awaits them.

Eden and Clay soon find themselves entangled in a web of drama and family troubles. As they fight against time to discover which little girl is theirs, the couple begins to rekindle their lost romance and discover God's sovereignty in their situation.

Great premise that is carried through all throughout the book. I really enjoyed the lead characters, Eden and Clay, and their situation - their very unique situation. The author's creativity shines through as the reader is lead through mysteries such as who the daughter is and who is behind all of the threats to Eden and Clay. Lonestar Angel is written masterfully, and I enjoyed it so much!

I have no complaints about the plot or story. Something to be aware of, the book strongly hints at the private aspects of marriage in Clay and Eden's relationship. I'm not a big fan of that kind of content.

All in all, I rate this book four out of five stars.

I have read Lonestar Sanctuary, and it was very good. I haven't read the other books in the series, but I do know that Colleen Coble is a very talented writer. I think I've read other books by her, but I don't remember the titles right now.

LOVE this series! I was so excited to learn that a fourth was due out since usually authors only write three books! Great, great series!

And, Sierra - all of the books are awesome. =)
