Lonestar Sanctuary by Colleen Coble

Allie Siders, mom of five-year-old Betsy, needs to get away from everyone she loves before more people are killed. Whoever is after her is killing those she loves.

With a killer on the loose and Betsy’s grandparents thinking they can take her away from Allie, the Bluebird Ranch is the only place to hide. She can’t let anything happen to Betsy. Elijah, the owner, may be able to help.

Tall, broad-shouldered Rick Bailey is foreman at Bluebird Ranch. Elijah hired him after he helped Rick deal with some difficult issues just like he helped many of the troubled kids who were brought to the ranch. Now Rick works with troubled kids who’ve had to deal with the kind of abuse Rick dealt with growing up.

When Rick and Allie meet, it is definitely not love at first sight. How will they catch the murderer when neither trusts the other and both are keeping secrets?

One of the questions in the Reading Group Guide in the back of the book was, “Can secrets ever be good?” Hmm. Something to think about. Thanks, Colleen.

I’ve enjoyed her Aloha Reef Series and Midnight Sea. The Texas setting in this book was irresistible to me.
