REVIEW: Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Colleen Coble and the Amazon Vine Prgram for sending me a copy of "Lonestar Angel" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“Lonestar Angel” by Colleen Coble is the touching fourth novel in the Lonestar book series. Eden and Clay Larson lost their infant daughter to a kidnapper five years ago. Eden assumed that Brianna was dead and moved on with her life – without Clay. As her boyfriend attempts to “pop the question”, Eden’s romantic dinner is interrupted by Clay with the news that Brianna is alive.

Clay has arranged for the two of them to act as counselors at the ranch where their daughter is supposed to be located. So the two of them travel to the Bluebird Youth Ranch in Texas. Almost immediately, it becomes apparent that the kidnapper is still nearby watching their every move and attempting murder. The Larsons must watch their backs, protect all of the children as they investigate and learn which of the little girls is Brianna. Can they do all of that and not fall for each other all over again?

Although this suspenseful tale did not engage my imagination as intensely as the other three books in the series, it still kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me reading into the late hours of the evening. I figured out which of the children was Brianna almost immediately. But I was thoroughly smitten by the romantic undercurrent that pulsed through every scene that contained Clay and Eden. This novel is definitely one for my “keeper” book shelf.
