Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble
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’ve read a handful of Colleen Coble’s books, and enjoyed them all, so I was glad for the opportunity to read and review Blue Moon Promise. Ms. Coble’s other books contain an element of intrigue – and this one is no different. Coble artfully draws the reader into the conundrum that Lucy finds herself in after her father’s death.
I could relate to Lucy – her need to control every facet of her life reminds me of myself sometimes. I appreciate the truths that surfaced through the book’s characters and events. Real, relatable characters and an interesting plot take the reader on a rich journey that can reveal a lot about life and relationships with God and each other.
Ms. Coble is a wonderful and engaging storyteller. This is the first book in the Under Texas Stars series; I look forward to reading the next one when it is released.
