Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Evangelical Christian novelist Coble offers up a Texan-style serving of ranch, rodeo and rambunctious interpersonal conflicts. Single mom Shannon Astor returns to her hometown in Bluebird Crossing with her daughter, Kylie, in tow, to take over as local veterinarian. Immediately upon arriving at her late uncle's dilapidated house, Shannon is faced with a dead farmhand. Before readers can recover from that episode, Shannon gets an emotional revelation involving Jack MacGowan, a wealthy landowner who ruined her reputation years earlier. Now, she must decide what to do with her newfound knowledge, and in quick succession her life is threatened, her daughter's birth father re-enters her life, and she must put to rest demons from the past. Fans of Coble will enjoy the light banter and easy conversational tone of this story, but too many unlikely and unrealistic plot complications detract from what could have been a satisfying love story.

UPDATE-UPDATE-UPDATE
BUY BOTH LONESTAR BOOKS, READ QUICKLY. "Lonestar Homecoming," Lonestar book 3 is to be released in April, 2010.
But first, READ BELOW AND DISCOVER ABOUT THE "LONESTAR SECRETS."

Mystery/romance author, Colleen Coble, has written a "deluxe" duo of stories in her "Lonestar" pair of books. She weaves mystery, suspense, adventure, and Christian romance into stories as big as the Lonestar state this time. Lots of horse ranch action as well.

Single and the new local Veterinarian, Shannon Astor, with daughter, Kylie, move to a ranch beside Bluebird Ranch (from "Lonestar Sancturay".) She meets Faith, a 5-yr-old twin image of Kylie, but daughter of Jack, whose wife, Blair, is dead. Jack was also responsible for rumors that forced Shannon away from this area after high school. Shannon's daughter's real twin, died on the day of its birth, the same day Jack's wife gave birth, in the same clinic, with the attending nurse for both mothers being the aunt of Blair. It's obvious, a twin was switched with Blair's deceased girl.

Confused? Author Coble does a much better job of setting up the story. All that activity is just the beginning. A lawyer jokes to Shannon, that since Jack's Senator father is rich and powerful, her best solution is not a court fight but marrying Jack, the guy she loathes. Impossible! Impossible? Well...

Then there is Mary Beth, friend in trouble that disappears;
Tucker Larve, mustang buster & enemy of Jack;
Shannon's dead parents, mine accident???;
Rev./Vet. Grady & Dolly O'Sullivan (from Lonestar Sanctuary);
plus Rick, Allie, & Betsy Bailey (also of the previous book);
and Felipe Mendoze, a very dead ranch hand;
and...

Format: Paperback
When I first started reading LONESTAR SECRETS and the mystery of the twins was revealed early on, I thought that would make the book predictable, and I was a little disappointed. I sure am glad that I kept reading!

This story is Shannon's story, and the mystery surrounding the twins is only a part of it. There are other mysteries in the book. What happened to Shannon's roommate? What do her kidnappers think Shannon has? Did her parents find the Spanish treasure they were seeking?

None of these were the biggest mystery for me, though. As I read through the book and watched Shannon's character change, I wondered if she would ever trust again. After the things she had endured, I figured she certainly had reason NOT to trust. Shannon receives the message, throughout the book, that love is a choice, and it was interesting to me to watch her as that message finally began to make sense. I think all women--all people--can identify with not wanting to trust after you have been hurt. If you don't make the decision to trust again, I think you certainly live less of a life than you could. Shannon Astor does make that choice, and in the process, she finds what she's been dreaming of. Watching her character evolve enough to love again was what made the book worth reading for me.

I loved this book. I read Lonestar Santuary and couldn't wait for Lonestar Secrets. I adore a good story and when you add horses to the mix, its a double scoop of yummy..
I love how the author creates female heroines that are not perfect Barbie doll type people. You feel like these women are people that could live next door to you...
There is a scene in the book where the horses are trapped by wildfire and the way the author describes the details, it will stay with you a long time...Amazing!!
I can't wait for the next Lonestar book...

Colleen Coble has again scored a winner. You never have to wonder if the book has her name on it if it is going to be good. She just seems to get better with age, I reckon, as we would say from Texas!

It is entertaining but a litte predictable. I can't imagine what the horror of being told your newborn infant is dead and finding out later it was given to another family.

Shannon Astor left her hometown in disgrace as a single mother. Not only was her only family, her uncle, embarrassed by her unwed mother state, she had just lost one of her twins to a mysterious malady after her birth. Shannon leaves, determined to prove to everyone that she is not the lose they believe her to be. She puts herself through vet school and the job she finally gets is back in her hometown working the Mustang Makeover. On the first day checking the horses, she runs into two men from her past - Tucker Larue, who fathered her daughter and Jack McGowan, her high school crush who betrayed her trust. As if seeing these two wasn't enough, she sees Jack's daughter who is a dead ringer for her own daughter, Kylie.

Shannon investigates and finds out that Jack's daughter, Faith, is Kylie's twin and her daughter. Turns out Jack's wife delivered a baby girl the same day in the same clinic and her baby died. Her aunt, who was the nurse in both deliveries, thought she could "help" both Shannon and Jack by switching the babies. When danger comes stalking Shannon and her former roommate disappears, Jack and Shannon decide to marry. Will he be able to keep her safe?

I loved this book! The culprit was not someone I suspected from the beginning and I love that the characters are not perfect.
