Book Description: Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems.
When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn’t know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can’t lose the last piece of Liam she has left.
Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution . . . but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry’s family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp.
To make matters worse, Liam’s best friend survived the car bomb. She’s never really liked Jesse and now she can’t seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam’s place in their band, it’s almost more than she can bear.
But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life—or the life of her unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?
My Thoughts: Anytime Colleen Coble writes a new story I grab it. She is one of my to.go.authors.
As I began reading Because You're Mine I was immediately immersed in the story of Alanna and her unborn child.
Alanna has not had the best of luck. So, when her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour.... it seems that her life will not get better. Poor Alanna! It seems that life goes from bad to worse. But there is always hope and Alanna holds on to life and hope for herself and her unborn child. An interesting part of this story for me was the strong bond that a mother has for her child even her unborn child. And all that she will do to protect her child.
There are twist and turns in this spellbinding read!
Of course, there are a couple of characters in this read that seem all to real and not likable at all. But in true "Colleen Coble fashion" the twists come when the reader least expects them.
This is one of those reads that the mystery/suspense reader will not want to miss! 💕
