Set in the state of Texas, Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble is a wonderful romantic fiction book. Gracie is on the run with her daughter, Hope. They find refuge in an unlikely source, a single, military father of two, who just returned home to care for his children after a tour of duty. Will Gracie be able to set down roots somewhere or will her problems keep haunting her?
Lonestar Homecoming was a great modern day romance. The characters were down to earth and very likable. They all came with a little baggage. When Hope and Michael started to fall in love, they quickly realized that their baggage would just follow along. With all the bumps in the road, and some unexpected visitors, they discovered that leaving casting aside their fears and completely trusting in God to protect and provide is the only way to live.
I enjoyed the Texas scene in this book. I've never been there, but Coble pasted a great picture of what it is like within her story. As a mother I enjoyed the story line with Gracie and her daughter. In the midst of everything that was happening, caring for her daughter was always her number one concern.
Lonestar Homecoming is the 3rd in a series by Colleen Coble. I have not read the first two books, but this book was just fine as a stand alone novel. I am very interested in checking out the other books in the Lonestar Series soon, though.
Buy It: Lonestar Homecoming is available in stores everywhere and online as well.
