Colleen Coble’s blend of romance and suspense is right on target
again with Blue Moon Promise. It’s a story I’d been looking
forward to reading that lived up to every expectation I had of it, and
as someone who has been a fan of Colleen Coble’s books for years,
my expectations were fairly high. If you’re looking for a romantic
suspense that’s well written with mysterious elements that you can
still read after dark, this book is for you.
The heroine of the book, Lucy Marsh, is the spunky caretaker of her two younger siblings. Driven from the life they’re living by dangerous circumstances, she accepts a marriage from a man she doesn’t know in a type of Isaac-and-Rebekah story. When she arrives at his ranch, she learns that he was in no way in favor of their marriage but at this point it’s too late. Since she’s nowhere near suited to be a rancher’s wife, he’s less than kind to her at first.
As Lucy proves herself to be a good, hardworking woman, Nate begins to fall in love with her and their romance blossoms just as danger, lurking around the corner since the story’s beginning, begins to threaten again. He must work to protect her and the children, who he’s also grown to love. Together, Lucy and Nate piece together the puzzle and unravel several mysteries to find who is behind the threat to Lucy.
A perfect blend of romance and suspense, well grounded in it’s setting with excellent characters, this book is truly one I’ll read again.
