Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble Book Review


I am a big fan of westerns and romance. When you combine those, I’m a giggly, giddy girl. I love Western, Christian Romance novels. Blue Moon Promise was a great book to read. Lucy (I love that name!) and her siblings ran out of money and safety after their father passed away. When danger began lurking around their home, a stranger made her an offer she couldn’t refuse!

Lucy accepted a proxy marriage and stunned her new husband with her, and her siblings, arrival. Nate, like any unsuspecting new groom didn’t know what to do. But, after he realized the danger had followed Lucy, he realized he had to protect her. Afterall, he is an upstanding, Christian man… with a new wife!

I’m not going to spoil the story and tell you if they ended up falling love or if their marriage made it or not. But I will tell you that this was a very nice, well written story. Both Lucy and Nate are Christians and both believe in the sanctity of marriage. They know that you can’t lie to each other so the book is written without a ton of length between secrets being revealed. This is one thing that I REALLY enjoy about this book. It gets right to the point without dragging the plot out to long. But it gives you enough action and story to keep it interesting. These are the types of stories I like to read.

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.
