Spring Reads: Because You're Mine

Thomas Nelson; 226 pages; $12.99; Amazon

One of my go-to authors I can always rely on for a good read is USA Today bestselling author Colleen Coble, who has written dozens of novels, from historical romances to contemporary ones. Whenever any of her new titles becomes available to review, I eagerly sign up to review each one; which happens to the case for Because Your Mine. I had signed up to review it back in late December or early January through the Book Look program from Thomas Nelson, but I'm just now getting around to reviewing it.

The novel centers on Alanna, a pregnant Irish singer who's husband, Liam, was killed in a car bombing while their Celtic band was on tour in Charleston, South Carolina. Why would someone kill her husband? Well, at least that's the question both Alanna the police are asking.

Before she can even mourn Liam's death, her father-in-law is threatening to fight for custody of her unborn child. Fearing the possible loss her child, Alanna agrees to marry her agent, Barry, so she can stay in the country, and hopefully protect her child.

Final Thoughts: By the cover art alone, I would have thought this would be a straight-up romance, but that isn't the case here. The novel starts out with a devastating loss for the main character, Alanna, and followed by a convenience marriage plot. With a few twists and turns, the plot does change focus when Alanna arrives at her new husband's family home, which happens to be an old haunted mansion.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Because You're Mine. It's not your typical Colleen Coble novel. There are plenty of twists throughout the novel that kept me turning the pages.
