Book Review: Safe in his Arms

About Safe in His Arms:

Under Texas Stars, Book 2

Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.

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 Opinion

First of all, this book is the second in a series but you can definitely read it as a stand alone!

Margaret from Safe in his Arms may be one of my favorite characters of all time. I really loved her strength, independence, individuality, and desire to work hard and wear what is comfortable and practical. But I also really related to her weaknesses: lack of self-confidence, loneliness, and feeling like no one will ever love her for who she is.

With that being said, I loved watching her grow, mature and create a relationship with Daniel. I also loved watching her let God and Daniel show her that she isn't unlovable no matter what she thinks or others think about her.

This book is a great reminder that we are all beautiful and perfect in God's eyes and that God has a special plan for all of us in life! It was very well written and had me wanting to read on and on from the very first words of the first chapter!

And of course, I loved the historical aspect of learning about historic Texas in the 1800's and the role of women and men back then!

Once again, Great Book Colleen Coble!
