“Lonestar Angel” is the latest Colleen Coble novel set on the Bluebird Ranch in West Texas. Eden Davidson Larson has been estranged from her husband Clay for five years, ever since their 6 week old daughter Brianna was kidnapped. Eden believes that Brianna is dead, but Clay isn’t sure. Now someone has sent Clay Larson a photo of five little girls at Bluebird Ranch, claiming that one of them is Brianna.
Clay interrupts Eden’s engagement dinner to announce that he never signed the divorce papers and they are still married. He pressures Eden to join him as counselors at Bluebird Ranch, a camp for foster children; so that they can get samples of the girls’ DNA to determine which one is their daughter.
Shortly after their arrival, it becomes clear that someone s targeting Eden and does not want their family reunited. Is it someone from Columbia that Clay upset while assigned there with the Air Force? Is it someone at the ranch? And where does Eden’s own foster brother fit into the problem? Once they discover which girl is Brianna, will Clay and Eden be able to resolve their differences, or will they divorce and go their separate ways?
This is another gem from Colleen Coble, a contemporary mystery with lots of plot twists and turns, yet wholly believable and set at Bluebird Ranch, a safe haven for foster children and abandoned or mistreated horses. This is the fourth book in the Lonestar series. Each story in the series stands alone and reading one will not spoil the others for you.
