SAFE IN HIS ARMS, a novel by Colleen Coble
Book 2 of Under Texas Stars
Book Review by Trudi Cook
Who Should Margaret Trust?
Raised by her father on a Texas ranch, motherless Margaret O’Brien is tall and strong and doesn’t fit in with the girls in town. So she pours her heart into the ranch she loves, becoming a good rancher. She’s also trying to fill in for her deceased brother and please her father, who just isn’t sure a ranch should be left to a girl.
When her father decides it’s time for his daughter to get married and give him grandchildren, he hires Daniel Cutler to be foreman, leaving Margaret feeling betrayed and angry. In spite of his position, Margaret is drawn to Daniel, but then an overheard conversation makes her suspect that Daniel is somehow connected with bank robberies. As a series of accidents threaten Margaret’s future, her heart wants to believe Daniel, but situations seem to indicate he’s not worthy of that trust.
Colleen Coble does her usual good job of interweaving mystery and suspense with romance. Her characters are lovable and believable, and the mystery keeps you guessing along with Margaret.
Safe in His Arms is book 2 of the Under Texas Stars series. It was a fascinating stand-alone book, but exciting enough that I’ll be looking for Book 1 to see what I missed!
(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review.)
