Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble

About the Book:

Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.

Under Texas Stars, Book 2

Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O’Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she’s made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She’s convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.

So when Margaret’s father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she’s frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she’s downright worried. Daniel swears he’s not involved, but Margaret’s not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic “accidents” threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.

My Review:

Colleen Coble has quickly become a favorite author of mine over the various books I have read from her. I love how she writes both historical and contemporary but the one thing she always has in common with all her books is an element of suspense and this book proves that true. This is the second book in her Under Texas Stars book and proves to be just as good as the first. The best thing about this book is it can be read as a stand alone also. I enjoyed following the characters throughout this book , at times they were frustrating and in ways that made the story even more fun. I found myself reading this book quickly as I wanted to know how things will turn out. Overall this is a great book with fun characters and element of suspense that keeps the pages turning.

*I received this book from the publisher through Litfuse Publicity for the purpose of this review.
