Blue Moon Promise
By Colleen Coble
Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko
Lucy seems to have more than her share of bad things happen lately. First her job, then she notified by her sleazy landlord that he has sold the place. She has one week to find different accommodations! She is at her rope’s end, wondering how to protect her siblings, when out of the blue, an old friend of her father’s offers her an amazing opportunity. She will get married by proxy, have a house, clothing and food provided. Can she make the sacrifice for her siblings? And why is someone sneaking into their house and going through her bags and belongings?
I at first thought, “Oh, this is going to be just a great romance, I didn’t know that Ms. Coble wrote romance without mystery.” and she doesn’t! This was a very sweet, tender romance without a lot of details about it, but had a slow natural progression. This is the story of sacrificial love from a sister for her siblings and how Nate learned to love her by seeing that. It has a lot of spiders in it though, so be warned!!! You may feel creepy crawly afterwards!!! Great story! I really enjoyed it! – Martha
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.
