Safe in His Arms - Review & Blog Tour

I have been reading a lot lately.  If you follow my blog then you know that my reading can be very eclectic.  I want to introduce you to Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble.  It is actually Book 2 in the Under Texas Stars series but don't let that stop you from reading it if you haven't read Book 1.  Coble draws you into the story just the same!

Coble has a way with romance, mystery and amazing character development.  And while there is some predictability in certain situations, there are just as many surprises and suspense scenes as well. 

I found the main character of Margaret O'Brien to be a bit of fresh air.  She is extremely competent and can run the ranch; yet, she doesn't have it completely all together.  There is something very real about Margaret that most women can identify with, her sense of insecurity.

I have grown to really love historical fiction and the fact that this book is set in Texas is a definite plus in my book (I was born and raised in The Lone Star State).  I found it fascinating to learn about ranch work in the late 1800s.  If you like historical fiction and romance novels I would strongly recommend this book.  It is a clean, entertaining read and well worth the time!

Keep reading to hear more about this book and author.

About Safe in His Arms
Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.
Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She's convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.  So when Margaret's father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she's frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she's downright worried. Daniel swears he's not involved, but Margaret's not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic "accidents" threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.
