    I am really enjoying my second time through this series! :)This time around, I listened to the audiobook - it's very good!

    Again, far too similar to the other two books in the series. At least the author admits she has an obsession with "convenient marriages" in the afterword.

    Colleen Coble is a good author, and she skillfully combines romance with action/adventure and mystery. This book Lonestar Homecoming, is the third book of a trilogy based in Texas. The story centers on single mother Gracie Lister and her precocious daughter, Hope. Gracie is marrying Border Patrol Agent Cid Ortega, primarily so that Hope will have a father (which is a truly stupid reason to marry anyone) but, before they can exchange vows, gunshots are exchanged outside of her home by FBI agents [...]

    This is the best of the Lonestar series except that the heroine is wishy washy and runs from every confrontation and the alpha hero lets the bad guy sneak up on them over and over. 3 stars.

    Just when you think it couldn't get any crazier, Colleen Coble steps it up. This book brought such levels of danger like I don't think we've seen so far in this series. The marriage of convenience basis to this series works like a charm, and it works again in this book. Great read.

    Romance is not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed the other two Colleen Coble books I've read, so when I saw this one for 99 cents at the thrift store, I figured I would give it a try. It's not a bad book, but I think Midnight Sea and The Lightkeeper's Daughter are better. Gracie is sweet and Michael is a nice guy. They did not annoy me. Gracie made some stupid decisions, but they were realistically stupid to me, if that makes sense.The story does suffer from a case of insta-love, in my opinio [...]

    For most, it's the safest place on earth. For Gracie, it's the last place she wants to be and the one place she must return. With nothing but five dollars and the wedding dress she's wearing, Gracie Lister flees with her daughter by train to West Texas, to the town she ran away from so long ago. There they find refuge in the home of Michael Wayne--devoted single father, seasoned soldier--who gives Gracie a job caring for his two children and the hiding place she needs from her former fiancé. Mi [...]

    I feel like this story started it really strong, but pittered out at the end. Good concept and character development made for an entertaining read until the end in which dialogue felt forced and formulaic. Not a bad read, but not one of pick up again.

    I am so glad I have the entire Lonestar Series. I have read the first 3 and they are amazing. All three of them have been equally wellwritten. I can't wait to tear into the 4th book.

    Oh, no! Not a THIRD marriage of convenience in as many years in the same town!! I could hardly believe it.But this is still a wonderful book, maybe my favorite so far (I've read 6 of her books, I think). The setting - west Texas - drew me in each time and made me want to be there, and the characters and the mystery and danger were fun to read about. Sorry when it ended!

    Revisiting this book in the light of day. Let me say that I still love Colleen. She's truly a master story teller and I still very much enjoyed this book. However, it is, in my opinion, the poorest of her stories that I've read so far. Firstly, the marriage of convenience is sort of tired. I almost felt like because that plot device had worked in the previous two books in the series, there wasn't as much effort to make it believable in this one. This story would have stood just as well and still [...]

    If you like contemporary marriage of convenience stories I really think you will like this book. It has romance, of course, and some action. Gracie is the leading lady. She has a daughter, named Hope. On her wedding day, the FBI shows up hunting her fiance, Cid. They suspect him of working with the Mexican cartel. Gracie and Hope are suddenly in great danger. They jump on a train and run. She and her daughter need a new name, so Hope can enroll in school without being discovered. Michael is the [...]

    This is the third book in the series and I liked it better than the second book. This one had more action with the Mexican drug cartel. Gracie was used to running away from her problems. She ran on her wedding day after two FBI agents were killed in her yard trying to warn her of her fiancee's involvement with the cartel. She was only marrying Cid so Hope, her daughter could have security, but this wasn't what she had in mind. She took the train to Bluebird crossing to escape the danger in San D [...]

    First of all, I didn't know, and didn't read the previous two books. From the synopsis of Lonestar Sanctuary and Lonestar Secrets, and judging from Lonestar Homecoming, they are not very related. I have no problem following this one.Also, I didn't notice that this is a Christian fiction, and I kind of realised it when I was reading, and I'm not a Christian. However, the Christian elements weren't too much, pretty easy to ignore.I read around 40 pages before my exams, then read from the beginning [...]

    When the FBI visit Gracie just before her wedding and she finds herself in the middle of a shoot out she quickly flees with her young daughter Hope. Still wearing her wedding dress and with only $5 and a train ticket to Texas she finds herself in a desperate situation. When Michael finds Gracie he wants to help her and ends up offering her a job looking after his 2 children. Feelings between Gracie & Michael quickly escalate but with Gracie's ex-fiance determined to find her and Michael's li [...]

    It's Gracie's wedding day and her life had finally taken a turn for the better when the rug is swept out from under her. In fear for her life and the life of her young daughter, Hope, she runs with only her daughter and the wedding dress on her back. Michael has just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. He's come home to care for his children after his children were devastated by the tragic death of their motherhis ex-wife. Michale and Gracie's first meeting was something out of a fairy tale, ye [...]

    This is the third offering in the Lonestar Series from Colleen Coble. I have not read the first two books, and found the third to be an enjoyable read, which can stand independent of the series.Romance is not normally a genre which I choose to read. I selected this book because the description led me to believe the emphasis would be on adventure and intrigue, and less on romance. But I was mistaken. Fans of contemporary romance novels with a heave Christian theme will enjoy this book. Gracie has [...]

    Another nice story in this series, but way too many miraculous happenings to make it all happy and perfect. Seriously could have used better editing, though. Several things didn't follow through or didn't make sense. (Typical for this series.) Broken wrist on one page and on the next page she says she's not hurt anywhere, for example.

    Gracie is emotionally damaged. She has grown into a woman that runs from everything. She began running when she was pregnant with her daughter, Hope. Five years later she has run into Michael. He becomes her knight in shining armor. He realizes that she has some major issues but decides to entrust her with the care of his children. Michael is a military man, protocol is a way of life. Rules, regulation shadow all his actions. For Gracie, emotions lead the way. They decide to marry to protect all [...]

    When Gracie and Michael first meet, she's wearing a wedding dress. She's with her five-year-old daughter, Hope, but there's no husband. (That's because she left before the wedding, after finding out that her fiance was still involved in a drug cartel.) She has $5 to her name and, even though they're complete strangers, he hires her to take care of his kids. (His ex-wife, who had primary custody, has just died.)They fall for each other pretty quickly, but the happiness is threatened by the fact t [...]

    This charming book begins with Gracie Lister fleeing from her fiancee' on her wedding day. Gracie's response to problems seems to always be the same - she runs. Gracie fled with five dollars, a train ticket and the wedding dress she was wearing. She and her young daughter land in a small Texas town and are offered refuge by widower Michael Wayne. Michael is in need of a caretaker for his children and agrees to consider hiring her. Romance quickly springs up between the two but that is a limited [...]

    While I enjoyed this story and thought it was a good read, I am disappointed in the series as a whole. Each book as a stand alone book would be great, but as a series they are like reading three separate versions of the same basic outline. ALL THREE books of the Lonestar series have such similarities in story it makes you wonder if the author is having trouble with new material. All three are women in trouble. All three women have a 5 year old daughter. All three have a medical condition. All th [...]

    2.5 starsaudiobookA romantic tale of rescue and trust. Gracie runs form her wedding, in he dress with her ver young daughter to start a new life. She is fearful and guilt ridden and does one stupid thing after another IMHO. ( I was shaking my head at her more than once) She is broke has a hungry child and meets a man, Michael, who has just lost his wife and needs help with his home and children. It's a good situation except both of them have a past that wants them to suffer and is not going to d [...]

    With nothing but five dollars and the wedding dress she's wearing, Gracie Lister flees with her daughter by train to West Texas, to the town she ran away from so long ago. There they find refuge in the home of Michael Wayne--devoted single father, seasoned soldier--who gives Gracie a job caring for his two children and the hiding place she needs from her former fiance.Michael and Gracie aren't looking for love, but it finds them right away. And then trouble comes to call in the form of Gracie's [...]

    If this was a stand alone book, I would've given it 4 stars. Being the 3rd in a series and exactly like the first two in all the major points, I went with 3. Every main character in this whole series is a single woman with a 5 year old daughter who gets thrust into a marriage of convenience. And they all live in the same town. And they're all friends. Quite possibly the most unrealistic situation on the face of the literary earth. And WHY is Allie suddenly Hispanic in the 3rd book???? It was bey [...]

    The main theme in this series of books has been very similar. Despite that, this book was very good and I enjoyed reading it. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. I also appreciate that Coble incorporates passion into the Christian marriages in this series. It is always tastefully done but I appreciate Coble reminding Christian women that it is okay to be passionate with your spouse and that it is an important part of a well balanced marriage! I love that she includes that aspect wit [...]

    Not quite sure how I feel about this book. the main issue that kept this from a higher rating was the fact that the h kept running from confrontation and digging herself into deeper trouble. she trusted the H enough to go to his house in a far remote area on first meeting but not enough to tell him, that the dangers the family are having could be related to the threatening calls her ex is making to her? Really? The H who knows she ran after witnessing a murder never asks if the dangers could be [...]

    Couldn't quite finish this one. Too slow and I got really annoyed with Gracie. She is a good mom and understands development of kids etc, but then can't handle ANYTHING of her own emotions. She doesn't even try. Maybe she eventually does but I'm too annoyed to get there. Michael isn't much better. He came home to be there for his kids and accepts a job knowing there is a hit out on him. He should have turned around right then before he got all tangled up in work and drama. I understand that u ha [...]

    I have read so many historical fiction books in which two people marry for convenience, or because one is a mail-order bride, I'm almost sick of the same old plotbut, I often wondered, how would this work in a contemporary fiction novel? How could you get two people to marry for convenience and fall in love? I think it's more difficult because it is no longer common like it was in the "pioneer days." So, that's exactly what happens in this book, and it was actually believable. I enjoyed it and f [...]
