Colleen Coble provides just the right blend of suspense and romance in Twilight at Blueberry Barrens, the conclusion of her Sunset Cove series set in a small town on the coast of Maine. This may well be the best of the several books I have read by this author.
As in Colleen's other books, it does little good to think you have the mysteries all figured out; there are plenty of plot twists to keep you guessing throughout the story. There is an element of faith that plays out well in the story. And the character development deals with issues of putting the past in perspective and learning to be prepared for the opportunities the future presents.
This book could be read as a stand-alone. But it is much better to have read the earlier books in the series, especially The Inn at Ocean's Edge, to better understand some of the characters and their stories.
I highly recommend Twilight at Blueberry Barrens and the rest of this series to fans of great Christian romantic suspense. Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for providing a copy in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
"I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”
Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry
barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come
up with alternative ways to make a living.
Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious
choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up
looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two
nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake
brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his
family. The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more
difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis
isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance.
Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has
escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate
is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from
multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever
flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last.
Set on the beautiful coast of Maine, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens
brings together suspense, romance, and the hope that one day new life
will come again.
