Publisher's Description

Amid the beauty of Charleston, not all is as it seems.

When her husband Liam is killed by a car bomb while their Celtic band is on tour in Charleston, singer and Irish beauty Alanna doesn’t quite know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but Alanna knows she can’t lose the only piece of Liam she has left.

Alanna’s manager offers her a marriage of convenience to obtain U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution until she arrives at the family home of her new husband—a decaying mansion with more questions than answers.

Strange things begin happening that threaten Alanna’s life and the life of her child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is something more sinister at work?

A mysterious painting, a haunting melody, and a love stronger than death leave Alanna questioning where darkness ends and light begins.

Editorial Reviews

'...the strength of the atmospheric setting and a romance with a divine touch carry the story with ease. The nod to Celtic music adds a beautiful layer to this suspenseful tale of love lost and found.'
'Coble crafts a multifaceted plot with intricate tangles and turns. Her characters are believable and expose the stark difference between obsession and sacrificial love.'
'Fans of Coble’s romantic suspense novels, as well as those who enjoy Irish music, will appreciate this sweet standalone’s backstage view of Ceol, a four-woman Celtic band, founded by Alanna Connolly, a beautiful red-haired Irish singer.'
“For a psychological fiction novel as pure escapism from reality, this one is a good choice .'

    This review was written for Because You're Mine.
    A good gothic novel-all the elements- "damsel" in distress, someone to save her comes along, dismal old mansion, disapproving family, bodily attacks on heroine, disturbing behavior among people of house, talk of something that happened before but no clarification. Only trouble was either I have read too many gothics or something but I knew who was who and what was what by the second chapter. Although that it was well done-spooky enough to satisfy-well done Ms. Coble.

    This review was written for Because You're Mine.
    I have always loved this authors books. She writes with such depth and makes the stories come to life. This was a bit different from her usually books, but I have to say it was so powerful and intense I couldn't put it down. When I first met Alanna I was thrilled to know she was Irish. She was beautuful with delicate skin and had a sweet spirit around her. I could hear her accent and see the freckles that danced across her face. I loved how the author gave us bits and pieces of the Irish customs. I didn't like how gullible and so trusting she was.

    When an unexpected devastating accident happens, Alanna finds out her husband had died, and his best friend Jesse was barely clinging to life. It was a shock for Alanna's manager to step in when Liam's parents threaten Alanna with a lawsuit. Liam and Alanna never got around to telling their family and friends that Alanna was pregnant. So begins the sordid world that Alanna becomes apart of. I thought it was a bit much for Alanna to marry her manager Barry and live in the states to keep the baby away from Liam's parents by in Ireland. I didn't trust Barry at all and found him to be arrogant and very demanding. What has Alanna gotten herself into?

    When they return to Barry's estate Alanna senses that something is off. Doors locked with no answer to why , a picture hanging up that resembles Alanna , Barry so possessive that Alanna can't really do anything and we mustn't forget the creature in the swamp. I was worried for Alanna's safety as accidents started happening to her.

    When Jesse shows up, he has memory loss that I didn't really believe. For me I could guess right away what was going to be revealed. The story is intense with lots of secrets and a bit of violence that unnerved me. I did not like the part about the kittens and their possible demise. It made me realize how sinister and sick Barry was. Is Barry willing to kill to keep Alanna to himself? Can someone save her before it's to late?

    Overall the book was a bit predictable but had enough drama to keep me interested in the story. I liked the theme that things are not always what they appear to be. I rate this four out of five for the predictability and the violence that dealt with animals.

    I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild and publisher. The review is my own opinion.

    An exciting and mysterious novel! I love the twist in the Jesse/Liam aspect of the story. Great ending and definitely a re-read!

    This review was written for Because You're Mine.
    Alanna does not know where to turn or what to do. Her husband has been killed in a car bomb and she is left alone and pregnant. Her only hope at a new life away from the controlling hands of her father-in-law is to marry her manager. It seem like a dream come true. Alannas dream, however, quickly turns into a nightmare.

    First, I have to point out, Alanna is from Ireland!! so for part of the story it is set in that beautifully scenic country. IRELAND! And then colleen brings us to Americas Southern charm. The family heritage from both sides of the waters, both accents, the family home in Charleston. And of course the mystery. What on earth is going on? (MINI SPOILER ALERT- The only thing I did not like was no satisfactory explanation, as in NO explanation whatsoever, of the large painting).

    *I received this book free from Thomas Nelson and Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review. What I have expressed are my own thoughts.*

    This review was written for Because You're Mine.
    Because Youre Mine take an Irish Celtic group singer and drops her into the dark and forbidding world of Charleston with alligators and snakes lurking in every dark corner. After her husband is killed in a strange car bombing in Ireland, Alana agrees in desperation to a marriage of convenience with her manager. She then finds herself lady of a run-down and neglected manner in Charleston - a world away from her own Emerald Isles.

    But nothing is as it seems - her husbands best friend Jesse, a character who always gave Alana an uneasy feeling was seriously injured in the blast that killed Liam. Was he a innocent bystander or was this a warped murder - suicide plot that went horribly wrong.

    Because Youre Mine is an engaging tale which places its characters in some pretty unique settings. Its a quick read and would appeal to anyone who loves their suspense with a touch of romance thrown in. My only criticism is a few odd frequent references which kept throwing me out of the story - liberal use of mate - as in my mates seeing her mates etc and some of the language choices and local slang words felt a little forced to me. Small issue but the mate one had me cringing by the end - it was used so often and it hadnt struck me as a particularly Irish turn of phrase.

    All in all though, another solid suspense novel to enjoy on a whet dreary day - a great curl up and blob out book (if thats a thing).
