Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble

Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble weaves the tale of Lucy Marsh and her struggle to be in control of her life, as she tries to take care of her two younger siblings. When faced with the loss of her job, home, and threat on their lives, she feels her only option is to marry by proxy to a man she has never met. Lucy travels with her father-in-law to far off Texas.

Only problem, the groom has never been made aware of his marriage until Lucy appears on his doorstop with two kids in tow. Nate Stanton doesn't desire a wife, particularly not a scrawny one who isn't strong enough for life on a ranch. Will they ever learn to accept each other and find love, or will Lucy's desire to be in charge threaten their future.

I enjoyed reading Colleen's first book in her Under Texas Stars series. Not only was it a pleasurable read, but it also made me examine my own life to identify those times when I choose to be in control, instead of allowing God to work in my life. Letting go is never an easy thing, but necessary in our lives as Christians.

This book was provided free for review by Thomas Nelson.

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.
