Book Blog Tour Stop - Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble

Today, I'm hosting a book blog tour stop for author Colleen Coble's new book, "Blue Moon Promise."

About The Book:

 Book Number One in the Under Texas Stars series

A love like Lucy and Nate’s only comes along once in a blue moon . . .

Lucy Marsh's worldly resources are running out, but she's fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father's recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Texas where her new husband is surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to care for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he'd marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate finds he'd give anything to protect Lucy and the children he's grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons.

1. I enjoy a good western romance, and this one has all the key elements that make a good one - love, faith, hope, endurance - they're all here.

2. The setting of the book is in my neck of the woods. Set in the fictional town of "Larson," the area the author describes is on the Red River, near the Oklahoma border, and in one instance, the main character's father wants to buy all the land between their ranch and Wichita Falls - which is my hometown!

3. There is an element of mystery and intrigue woven into the story, which always makes the tale move along faster.

4. The author includes the story of the main character Lucy's strong faith and belief in God, and I admire that so much.

"Blue Moon Promise" is the first in a series, and I'm looking forward to the next books to catch up on some of the promising secondary characters who are sure to have stories to share.
