Lonestar Angel by Colleen Coble

Book Description: Eden's hope is rekindled when Clay delivers astounding news: their daughter has been found.
Five years ago Eden and Clay Larson's baby was stolen and never found. Eden blamed herself, Clay lost himself in work. Their young and rocky marriage ended. Or so Eden thought.
Now  Eden's moved to a new town. She's found faith and is trying to rebuild her life. She's even dating again-a sweet guy who plans to marry her someday. But then Clay arrives out of the blue and delivers shocking news: they're still married. What's more, Clay has been searching for Brianna all this time. And he believes he's found her: their daughter is in Bluebird, Texas, at a youth ranch.
To uncover the truth, Eden and Clay sign on as counselors at Bluebird Ranch. Working together, they rediscover their love for each other. But danger is closing in-Eden, Clay, and their young charges are in jeopardy. As they fight to save their family, Eden realizes that God has been fighting for them all along. And His plans are for a more abundant life than they've dared to hope.

My Review: As a die.hard.fan of Colleen Coble I was excited to read her newest book, Lonestar Angel.
Eden and Clay were married at a young age.  When their daughter, Brianna, was born Clay was buried in work and Eden was a young, excited but tired mom.  So, when someone kidnapped Brianna, Eden blamed herself and she thinks that Clay blames her for "it" too.
They both separate mentally when Brianna can't be found.  And soon afterward their marriage takes a toll and Eden leaves to make a new life.
Then, one day, when Eden feels that all is going well . . . she's dating a nice guy, rebuilding her faith and likes the town . . . Clay shows up.  Low-and-behold!  He informs her that they are still married.  And to boot! he has found Brianna.
But there's a glitch!  And this is when Clay informs Eden that their angel is at a youth ranch in Bluebird, Texas.  Clay comes up with a plan. Eden decides to follow her heart.
This is a wonderful.of.adventure and suspense read!  Just when the reader thinks she has "solved the mystery" . . . the bend in the road twists and zoom, on to a different, unknown path.
I loved this faith filled, second chances read!

About the Author:
I'm a reading addict. I'll read anything: cereal boxes, flyers, toilet paper bags. I grew up on Nancy Drew so I still love reading things that have some mystery or suspense in them, but romance is always at the heart of my books.
