My Review: An arranged marriage story with a twist.
Lucy Marsh struggles to raise her two siblings, keeping them out of the hands of their father's ill-meaning wife. When life in the city becomes too dangerous for them, Lucy gets a sudden proposal that may just be the answer to her prayers.
Nate is more than a little shocked when his father brings home a wife--not his father's wife, but Nate's!
Will Lucy and Nate, though thrown together by strange circumstances be able to weather the trials they face on the Texas range?
Definitely an interesting premise to begin a book! Written in a straight-forward manner that is easy to read and comprehend, Blue Moon Promise is a book that can be read in one huge gulp. I chuckled along with the characters, and smiled at Lucy's determination to not give up on her marriage, though it was based on less than normal terms. I loved how devoted she was to keeping her siblings safe, and cared for. This was the type of book that I could just dive into, I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next, and the pages turned rapidly. Not only is this book a romance, it's also a mystery! And that was a big part of why I kept reading well into the night, I had quite the time trying to guess the why behind Nate and Lucy's troubles.
I will admit that I was skeptical because of how unrealistically it all came about, with Lucy's proposal and such, but by the time I got into it I really didn't care how it had started, I was sucked into the plot! And I enjoyed watching Lucy and Nate's relationship grow.
Overall, an enjoyable read, that was a blast to read! I would recommend this book to fans of western romances, who love some added mystery :) I think that fans of Robin Lee Hatcher's Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series would be a great match for this wonderful new series by Ms. Colleen Coble.
Final Rating: 4.5 out of 5
I received this book in return for an honest review.
