Not Well Thought Out
Lonestar Secrets is a romance novel by Colleen Coble. Veternarian Shannon Astor returns to her home town in Texas to for a fresh start and a better life for her daughter. She discovers Jack MacGowan's daughter is a twin to Shannon's daughter--switched at birth for Jack's dead daughter by a nurse. Jack and Shannon decided to get married, but between Jack holding onto his dead wife and a dangerous man pursuing Shannon for money, the pair must find their way to romance.Was this review helpful?

This story felt not well-thought out and thrown together. Major elements are given cursory treatment and left behind. When Shannon discovers the babies were switched at birth, we get a hasty explanation of a doctor's incompetence, and that's. The same thing for Shannon's illness, which only pops up when the story needs it for complications and the implications of it ignored.
The worst for me was the money storyline. Shannon's roommate has been kidnapped, Shannon threatened, and her house broken into. And it gets ignored until the story needs a complication. Then something happens, everyone gets excited for a little while, and then it gets forgotten again.
This was an unsatisfying read.
