Safe in His Arms by Colleen Coble

About the Book
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 Thoughts
I think I liked this book even more than the first in this series, Blue Moon Promise. When we first met Margaret in that book I wasn't quite sure that I would enjoy reading a whole book about here but I loved it! Daniel was my absolute favorite character! I loved how he saw the true Margaret from the start and the care he took with her and her feelings. He made me melt! Margaret was great too! Just the right blend of strong and soft. Her emotions were so well written that I felt them right along with her. The plot was beautifully done with quite a few twists that I didn't see coming at all. The only problem I had was that at one point the characters were headed to a place they needed to go (don't want to spoil anything!) and on the way they start talking and then head home without any mention to the switch of plans, and they weren't plans that should have changed. But I was reading an ARC of the book so maybe that got changed before being published!
