I loved most of the the characters in that story and was touched by their struggles, their trust, hope and faith. But: There was definitely too much death and loss in that short time the story tells. That's why I wouldn't recommend that book.

Her characters and story line were flawless. She brings in God and faith into the story which is always a plus for me.
This series is set in Texas at a ranch that rehabilitates horses, and sometimes people. Allie and Rick were well suited and had the right amount of chemistry. I didn't put this book down until I finished it.
Can't wait to read the rest of this series.

Vickie5 Stars Out Of 5Colleen Does it AgainApril 7, 2011VickieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Colleen Coble is one of my favorite authors. This story was terrific. It held my interest and I read it in one day. I rooted for the characters. It held my interest. I don't usually write reviews immediately after I finish the book, but I couldn't help myself. I read this out of order in the series so I will re-read Lone Star Secrets and Lonestar Homecoming.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a cowgirl at heart and love all things western. That extended a bit to the Victorian house we live in. I started writing after the oldest of my younger three brothers was killed in a freak lightning accident, and Randy loved the west. My first story was set on a fort in Wyoming so writing this book was like going home a bit.
What was your motivation behind this project? I love marriage of convenience stories and wanted to try writing one.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I'd love readers to realize that love is a choice! That we have to work at showing love--it's an action verb.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It was a fresh reminder never to take my wonderful husband for granted!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Ami McConnell and Erin Healy teach me new things with every book. And my crit partners Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, Denise Hunter, and Robin Caroll are wonderful helps!
