Review of Lonestar Secrets by Colleen Coble

Book review for Thomas Nelson Publishers
Shannon Astor returns to southwest Texas to serve as the town's veterinarian, believing she's finally found the space to get her life back on track.

Then she catches a glimpse of Jack MacGowan, the man who ruined her life years before. But even more shocking is the sight of Jack's five-year-old daughter Faith, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Shannon's own daughter Kylie. Is it possible that their similarities could be more than just coincidence? Could Faith be the daughter that Shannon has believed to be dead for all these years?

As the truth emerges, everyone is forced to take sides--in a story with a heart as big as Texas.

If you enjoy a pretty easy read, this may be a book for you. It had an easy storyline to follow and pleasant characters. No unexpected twists, turns or suspense. It didn't really grab me, but I don't think the book was meant to. A western romance novel if you will. Someone asked how I liked it right after finishing the book and I said that it was ok. Not one of my favorites but might possibly pick it up at the library if I was looking for a quick read that wasn't very deep.
