Perfect blend of romance and suspense April 12, 2012
Eden and Clay are unexpectedly reunited when Clay claims to have found evidence that their baby girl who was kidnapped four years earlier is still alive. Meanwhile, they are hired as counselors at a ranch for at-risk children where Clay believes she is being held. As they search for their daughter, they must decide whether or not they will fight to save their marriage as well.
Lonestar Angel was an excellent read from beginning to end! Colleen set the stage for a fast-paced drama that had me turning pages at rapid-fire pace. The blend of romance and suspense is perfect, and I loved the focus on foster care and adoption—something that's close to my heart. I loved getting to know the owners and neighbors of Bluebird Ranch and was excited to learn that some of them were featured in previous novels (which you don't have to read to thoroughly enjoy this one!). I did feel like Colleen asked readers to take a couple of "leaps" in the believability of the plot, but it wasn't anything too major and a little imagination is good for anyone, right?!
Another winner from Colleen Coble, I look forward to reading others in this series!

Eden’s hope is rekindled when Clay delivers astounding news: their daughter has been found.
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.
