Two New Books from Colleen Coble - Lonestar Angel (Lonestar Series #4) & Smitten.

For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that my absolute favorite author is Colleen Coble.  Not only is she an awesome author but it is because of her that I have came back to being an avid reader.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Colleen in person at my husband's company picnic.  See my story here. She was so sweet and offered to send me ARC copies of two of her new books, Lonestar Angel, the 4th book in her Lonestar Series and Smitten a book written with Diann Hunt, Denise Hunter and Kristen Billerbeck.  Don't you just love the covers?  I think Smitten looks magical.

I have finished reading Lonestar Angel and let me tell you, I think this is the BEST of the series.  I LOVED it!  I will be writing my review a little later on so be sure to come back.  I hope to start reading Smitten soon.  It is a unique story about the town of Smitten and each of the authors took one character and developed their story.  I can't thank Colleen enough for offering both books to me.

I would like to say, if you have never read anything by Colleen Coble you are truly missing out.  God has given her such a precious gift of writing.  Her characters are so well developed that they stay with you long after you turn the last page.  My first experience with Colleen's work was Without a Trace (Book one of her Rock Harbor Series).  I fell in love with her character, Bree Nichols, and her dog, Samson.  When I was talking with Colleen she mentioned that she will be bringing Bree back in an upcoming book.  I got so excited and asked if she was bringing Samson back too and the answer was "yes"!

Have you ever encountered a character in a book that grabs hold of you and you think of them long after you turn the last page?  If so, please leave a comment and let me know the character, book and author.

May you have a blessed weekend!

Smiles & Blessings,

  1. Wow I have to say I have never read Colleen Coble I think she is now one of my new favorite authors. I could not put down the book Lonestar Angel. In fact I had to go out last night after finishing this book any way and I stopped at Barnes and Noble and grabbed another book of hers. This book has it all to keep you turning pages it is crime, mystery and even a little bit romance. The tragedy started five years ago when Eden Larson's baby was kidnapped and murdered (well may be). As you read this book you will be on the emotional roller coaster with Eden. My heart went out to Eden.
