Book Review: Safe in His Arms

About the book

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 thoughts
Safe in His Arms has a bit of everything to please a wide range of readers.  The main character is a strong, female.  There is romance, faith, growth, along with a tornado, an illegitimate child, murder, assault, bank robberies, and kidnappings.  I found myself unable to put the book down, either because I was on edge to see how the mystery would play out or how the romance was going to grow.  There are some parts that I was able to predict, but I was not certain of my predictions until they were revealed by the author.  I recommend this book to any one who enjoys a good romance, or books with a strong female as a main character, or a good mystery.
