Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble


With nothing but five dollars and the wedding dress she’s wearing, Gracie Lister flees with her daughter by train to West Texas, to the town she ran away from so long ago. There they find refuge in the home of Michael Wayne--devoted single father, seasoned soldier--who gives Gracie a job caring for his two children and the hiding place she needs from her former fiance.

Michael and Gracie aren’t looking for love, but it finds them right away. And then trouble comes to call in the form of Gracie’s ex-fiance who is now on the FBI’s most-wanted list. Together, Michael and Gracie must find the strength they need to protect their newly forged family.

My take:~

Colleen Coble returns with another instalment in her contemporary marriage of convenience series, providing her readers with likeable characters, engaging romance and a suspense twist. Colleen's experience as a writer ensures she provides her readers with what they love and Lonestar Homecoming delivers. Both Gracie and Michael are vulnerable from past traumas and their hesitant steps toward something more than convenience in their relationship takes time and keeps you invested in their journey. While the premise of this story is a little unlikely, Colleen's blend of suspense, romance and faith always provides a pleasing result.

I've enjoyed the other books in this series so I am sure I'll like this one too. Colleen Coble is probably my favorite Christian suspense author. Nice review!

Do you have a favorite in this series? I think I liked book two much more than the first one.

Rel said...

LOL! We think alike - book 2 for me as well :)

I love Colleen also - anyone else? If you love high action romantic suspense try Robin Caroll and Ronie Kendig. Irene Hannon and DiAnn Mills are favs of mine too :)

Aw, thanks friends! This has been a fun series to write. I love the west and it was fun to imagine how marriage of convenience situations might occur today.

Rel is my favorite. :-)
