Review-Colleen Coble's Safe In His Arms

Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.
Under Texas Stars, Book 2
Born and raised on sprawling Texas land, Margaret O'Brien prides herself on her competence as a rancher. But her father believes she's made for more than just dawn-to-dusk work. He wants her to have the love of a good man, to raise children, to build a life. But Margaret gave up such dreams years ago. She's convinced no man would have her, that the ranch is her life now.
So when Margaret's father hires Daniel Cutler as a new foreman, she's frustrated and suspicious. Then an overheard conversation links him with a gang of bank robbers, and she's downright worried. Daniel swears he's not involved, but Margaret's not convinced. She knows the man still has secrets. But would a criminal be so kind and talk so convincingly of his faith? As a series of tragic "accidents" threatens all she holds dear, Margaret must decide what to trust: her own ears, her best judgment . . . or what her heart keeps telling her.
My Review:
As always, Colleen Coble delivers a great story with a great message.  As with all of her books, GOD is always at the center. 
Margaret O'Brien has always helped her father with his ranch and assumed it would be hers one day.  He wants her to be more feminine and ladylike, so he hires a foreman, Daniel Cutler.  But Daniel is not what he seems and Margaret is very suspicious of him.  Meanwhile, her father also sends for her cousin, Lewis.  He ends up deciding to leave the ranch to Lewis, therefore hoping that Margaret would find a husband.  The rest of the story is so action packed, it left my head spinning.  Margaret finally finds out who Daniel really is, finally realizes she need to fully trust GOD and that GOD really does love her unconditionally.  After this everything falls into place. 
I highly recommend this book, it was wonderful.  Great job Colleen.
