My Review: I have read many novels by Colleen Coble and loved every one of them. This one is no different. The main characters are Eden and Clay. They were once married, until their daughter was kidnapped and the relationship just couldn’t handle the pressures of it all. Eden moved to get away from it all and go forward with her life. Just as she is preparing to begin a new relationship in a new town, Clay returns to tell Eden that they are still married and he thinks their daughter is still alive. In order to find her, Clay and Eden take off on an adventure at a youth ranch. What they find as they spend time there is a very tangled web of connections to family that they would never have dreamed of. Will their lives ever be the same again? How will they make it through these trials? They both find that God has been with them every step of the way even when they were not aware of it.

I would definitely recommend this book. It is full of plenty of suspense, some romance, friendships, and family. The characters are loveable. Each of them made me want to cheer them on as they went through trials. Also, just like a scary movie, I wanted to holler out to them not to make the next move they were about to make. Colleen Coble never disappoints when she writes a novel. Once again, that is the case with Lonestar Angel.

I received a copy of this book to read and review from Amazon. My review is not biased by the fact that I was given this book. I HONESTLY read and review any book whether bought or given to me. If I did not like the book I would definitely not give a rave review or recommend it.
