Review: Blue Moon Promise

Orphaned, impoverished, evicted, and unemployed, Lucy Marsh is running out of options. So, when a wealthy Texas rancher offers her a proxy marriage to his son, Lucy sees it as the only glimmer of hope for her and her two younger siblings.  Does a new life await Lucy in Texas?  Or, will old troubles follow close behind?  

Colleen Coble's Blue Moon Promise (Thomas Nelson, 2012) starts off a little slow and a bit heavy handed.  It feels as if Coble wasn't quite sure how to get the story off the ground in a believable manner.  A few more pages in, however, Coble hits her stride with a story that is heartwarming and romantic.   I enjoyed the historical backdrop (1870s Texas), and Coble's character development is excellent.  I really liked Lucy, her younger brother, and her little sister and cared what became of them.  And, the hero of Blue Moon Promise?  Swoon worthy . . .


Blue Moon Promise is a story of hope, romance, and suspense . . . immersing the reader in a rich historical tale set under Texas stars.
