"Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems. When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn't know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can't lose the last piece of Liam she has left. Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law's control. It seems like the perfect solution. but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry's family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp. To make matters worse, Liam's best friend survived the car bomb. She's never really liked Jesse and now she can't seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam's place in their band, it's almost more than she can bear. But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life--or the life of her unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?"-- Provided by publisher

I like Colleen Coble's books because you pretty much know what you are going to get from her novels. They tend to be predictable, but that isn't always a bad thing. Yes, I had the whole thing figured out long before the final page--actually, I had pretty much predicted what was going to happen before the end of the first chapter. Still there is comfort in predictability--isn't that why we watch Hallmark Movies or read romance novels? (Speaking of which, "Because You're Mine" would make a great addition to the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel--absolutely perfect!) Alanna is a likable character though a bit naive. She is heartbroken over the loss of Liam, the love of her life, and desperate to protect her unborn child. I love that she played the fiddle and was part of a band that wants to be the next "Celtic Woman." The setting in the swamp with the alligators and snakes added to the atmosphere of the nearly deserted and run down mansion that was Barry's home. Overall, this is a fun light read for people who enjoy Christian fiction and who like to know what to expect in their mystery novels. It was entertaining and light.
