Safe in His Arms {Book Review}


Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble

About Safe in His Arms:

Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.

Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She's convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.

So when Margaret's father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she's frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she's downright worried. Daniel swears he's not involved, but Margaret's not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic "accidents" threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.

My Thoughts

I have always been a fan of historical fiction and Safe in His Arms does not disappoint! The story is set in Texas in the 1800’s. From the beginning the description of life in the west gave me the feeling I was right there in that frontier town! I can picture the town, the smells, the scenery, all of it! I love when I story can transport you to another place and time and make you feel you are there right in the middle of everything!

The main character, Margaret has a lot of insecurities that most of us experience at one time or another, we don’t feel we are attractive, tall enough and just do not feel we fit in with other women! We can all relate, no? I loved Margaret’s strength throughout the story. She was not your typical woman that most would expect from the 1800’s. Margaret was a rancher’s daughter and was happier on the ranch then in the kitchen!

Safe in His Arms is fast-paced filled with romance and enough suspense to keep you reading!
