SAFE IN HIS ARMS (COLLEEN COBLE)
Thomas Nelson|September 11, 2013|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-1-5955-4914-3
Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.
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.
SAFE IN HIS ARMS was a nice, light, lazy afternoon read. The story moved along at the perfect pace and was interesting enough to allow me to finish from beginning to end.
