Series: Rock Harbor Series

Paperback: 368 pages

Publisher: Thomas Nelson (July 11, 2017)

Dana has already learned that love isn’t safe . . . but could it be different in Rock Harbor?

As a 911 dispatcher, Dana Newell takes pride in being calm in tough circumstances. In addition to her emotionally-charged career, she’s faced enough emergencies in her own life. She recently escaped her abusive fiancé to move to tranquil Rock Harbor where she hopes life will be more peaceful.

But the idyllic town hides more danger and secrets than it first appeared. Dana is continually drawn to her new friend Boone, who has scars inside and out. Then she answers a call at her job only to hear a friend’s desperate screams on the other end. Soon the pain in her past collides with the mysteries of her new home—and threatens to keep her from the future she’s always wanted.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Dana Newell decides she’s just going to go back home to Copper Falls and start life over in her peaceful home town. She’s not the best at selecting boyfriends, and just left an abusive one, this guy was really sick and scary. Living with her brother, he will protect her.

Boone just lost his sister to a crazy dude, but finding her killer was turning out to be impossible. When another young lady is murdered, this small town wonders if they will ever feel safe again.

Oh Wow! Colleen Coble comes in with a bang with her return to Rock Harbor series. Which I love, love, love, by the way. One of my favorite series! I was overjoyed at being in Rock Harbor again and meeting all of the wonderful characters. Danger is lurking and tension is running everywhere trying to find the murderer. And since Dana’s fiancé turns up in town stalking Dana, everyone thinks he’s the murderer. But then the story takes a wild twist. And we’ll, I had no idea what was coming next, never even guessed it! And this is where I’ll stop telling anything else because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t read the awesome Beneath Copper Falls! If you love mystery and suspense with a little romance in the mix, this book is one you don’t want to miss. In fact anyone would enjoy this one!

I received this book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson through TLC Tours. I was not required to write a review, it was my choice to write this positive review, and the opinions in this review are my honest opinion’s only.

Mermaid Moon
By Colleen Coble

Merimaid Moon

 

Book Description

Mallory’s mother died fifteen years ago. But her father’s last words on the phone were unmistakable: “Find . . . mother.”

Shame and confusion have kept Mallory Davis from her home for the last fifteen years, but when her dad mysteriously dies on his mail boat route, she doesn’t have any choice but to go back to Mermaid Point.

Mallory believes her father was murdered and childhood sweetheart Kevin O’Connor, game warden in Downeast Maine, confirms her suspicions. But Kevin is wary of helping Mallory in her search. She broke his heart and left—without a word—years ago.

When Mallory begins receiving threats on her own life—and her beloved teenage daughter, Haylie—their search intensifies. There’s a tangled web within the supposed murder, and it involves much more than what meets the eye.

As answers begin to fall into place, Mallory realizes her search is about more than finding her father’s killer—it is also about finding herself again . . . and possibly about healing what was broken so long ago with Kevin. She just has to stay alive long enough to put all the pieces together.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

 Wow! This book kept me the edge of my seat while I was reading it! Mallory and her dad wasn’t close, but when she rec’d a phone call from him just before he died saying, ‘find mom’ she was really confused. Her mom passed away years ago. Mallory has no choice but to return to Mermaid Point to try and figure out what happen to her dad. A trip back into her past, including childhood sweetheart Kevin O’Connor takes Mallory on a whirlwind trip that has Mallory digging into parts of her past,  someone starts threatening Mallory, as well as her daughter’s life.

There is so much going on in this story, so many twists and turns. When I thought I had it all figured out, something else happens to throw me off again, and I loved it! Colleen Coble does such a fantastic job of creating characters that I connected with as they became part of the story, and realistic scenes that makes me wish I had been a detective! I love Ms. Coble’s books, and this is one of her very best! If you enjoy fast pace suspense thrillers, Mermaid  Moon is a fantastic book you will want to read!

Litfuse Presents…..The End of Ocean’s Edge by Colleen Coble

The End of Ocean’s Edge
by Colleen Coble

The Inn at Ocean’s EdgeThe Inn at Ocean’s Edge (Thomas Nelson, April 2015)

Claire’s visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.

In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year—and until now, Claire didn’t even know she had ever been missing.

But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.

Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances—at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.

With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire’s very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone—maybe everyone—is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Talk about mystery, The End of Ocean’s Edge by Colleen Coble is one of the best mysteries I have read! Who is Claire Dellamare? She thought her life was like any other rich girl’s life, that it until she  Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father. That’s when she starts hearing rumors about her disappearing for a year when she was young.

Wow, this was an awesome read! The plot line was amazing, and the characters were so very realistic I wanted to be there in the story with them. Clarie was a sweet and intelligent young lady, and never did she think her life would be in shambles when she returned to the Hotel Tourmaline. The more I read the stranger the story became, one murder and one young child went missing at the same time. Was there a connection? What strange and horrific thing could have happened all those years ago? This is a book you do not want to miss. And if you are a Colleen Cobble fan, this is one of her best!

Seagrass Pier

Seagrass-Pier-

ABOUT THIS BOOK

In a secluded corner of Hope Beach, one woman must decipher a stranger’s memories . . . before they cost her everything.

Elin Summerall was one of the lucky ones. Not only did she get a heart transplant, but the donor was a perfect fit. A miraculously perfect fit.

But when Elin begins having violent flashbacks—and vivid dreams of being strangled—she realizes that she has been the recipient of more than just a new heart . . . Elin is remembering her donor’s murder.

Her strange affliction has attracted some unwanted attention: from the press, from the authorities . . . and from the killer himself. Now, living alone with her young daughter and aging mother, Elin is being stalked—by a man she’s only met in her nightmares.

The police are dubious of her story, but one off-duty FBI agent is eager to help her: Agent Marc Everton, the father of Elin’s daughter.

Of course, he doesn’t know about that. Yet.

Now, in a remote cottage on Hope Island, Elin and Marc must probe the secrets buried in her borrowed heart. And there’s no time to waste. One man is desperate to silence her—before she remembers too much.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Elin Summerall was doing great from her heart transplant surgery, if she could just rid of the nightmares of a murder that has been keeping her awake at night. Could these nightmares be about the person who murdered the lady who died, resulting in Elin’s new heart?

Elin had her hands full with her mothers declining health, lack of sleep due to the nightmares,  people stalking her and FBI Agent Marc Everton, who happens to be Elin’s daughter’s father, who doesn’t know about his daughter. As usual, Colleen Coble and her awesome professional writing skills brings her fans and readers another nail biting suspense with a mixture of believable characters that will keep you awake at night because you have to see whodoneit! There is a lot going on between the pages of this book, but Ms. Coble does a fantastic job of weaving it all together and bringing Seagrass Pier to a really wonderful ending.

Smitten Book Club

by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck,

Denise Hunter, Diann Hunt

Smitten Book ClubThe century-old Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship is no ordinary book club choice. But for the little book club in Smitten, Vermont, it might be their best pick yet!

The thick, leathery tome Heather pulled out of the dusty cardboard box was definitely coming home with her. Not only was The Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship an appealing curiosity by virtue of its title; it was also written by Smitten, Vermont native Pearl Chambers, a local gentlewoman from three generations back.

Little did Heather know the repercussions this little curiosity would have on her and her friends’ romantic exploits.

When Heather and her fellow book club members begin passing the book around, their respective interpretations are unleashed on their respective love lives . . . for better or for worse. Is it a mystery? An idealist fantasy? An intimation of Jane Austen? As romantic love finds its way to each woman, the Guide proves itself both surprisingly prescient and hilariously irrelevant.

What’s more, a handwritten inscription indicates that the arcane book might hold the only extant clues leading to buried gold—exactly what one of the members needs to keep her house. How could they not go treasure hunting?

In this remarkable collaborative novel, besties Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, and Diann Hunt tackle the tale of the Gentlewoman’s Guide by writing for one book club member apiece. Smitten Book Club is a hopeful, hilarious story of friendship and healing, written by friends for friends.

Purchase a copy here.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Another collection of Smitten stories, and another great book by four really awesome writers! Smitten, Vermont is a romantic little town and from it comes four really awesome romantic, mysterious stories.

Heather finds an old romantic advice book written by a one time famous Vermont Resident at a yard sale. This book, The Gentlewoman’s Guide to Love and Courtship, had a note in it saying that there are clues to lost gold within its pages. As the ladies in this book, Heather, Abby, Lia and Molly find romance in their own lives, will they take advise from this old forgotten book?

The four Novella’s in this book;  Love by the Book.. by Colleen Coble, Shelved Under Romance.. by Kristin Billerbeck, A New Chapter.. by Diann Hunt, Happily Ever After.. by Denise Hunter, are just a really fantastic read! I thoroughly enjoyed following the romantic lives of each of these four ladies. I loved each character, and I really don’t have a favorite! They are all good, and I really want to encourage you to pick up a copy of Smitten Book Club, and also check out the first two books in this series as well!

Rosemary Cottage

ABOUT THE BOOK

Amy came to Rosemary Cottage to grieve, to heal, maybe even find love. But there’s a deadly undertow of secrets around Hope Island….

The charming Rosemary Cottage on the beach offers Amy Lange respite she needs to mourn her brother, Ben. She’s even thinking of moving her midwife practice to the Outer Banks community. It’s always been a refuge for her and her family. She also wants to investigate Ben’s disappearance at sea. Everyone blames a surfing accident, but Amy has reason to wonder.

Coast Guard officer Curtis Ireland has lost a sibling too. His sister, Gina, was run down by a boat, leaving him to raise her infant daughter. If anyone knew who little Raine’s father was, Curtis could lose his beloved niece. Yet he can’t help being drawn to Hope Beach’s new midwife, Amy. He even agrees to help her investigate what happened to both Ben and Gina.

Can two grieving people with secrets find healing on beautiful Hope Island? Or will their quest for truth set them at odds with each other…and with those who will go to any length to keep hidden things hidden?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I love, love Rosemary’s Cottage, the book, and the cottage on Hope Beach. It is cozy, calm, relaxing and just an enjoyable place to be. That is until two people die and their deaths are a mystery. Well a mystery to Amy because one of the victims was her brother. But can she convince everyone else that Ben and Gina’s deaths were a murder?  Gina’s brother Curtis hadn’t thought much about it since Gina’s death was ruled an accident. But as Amy and Curtis start looks for clues, strange things start to come to surface that confirms what Amy has thought all along.

This is an awesome story to read! Colleen Coble has a way of capturing your heart and attention on the very first page and keeping it until long after you finish reading the story. Amy and Curtis are adorable, and I love the attraction between them, even though they don’t see it. And then there is Raine, Gina’s baby that she left in Curtis’ care. Who is the father of Gina’s baby? Could it be Ben, which would make Raine Amy’s niece? Tensions soar when Amy tells her parents that their son may have fathered a child and kept her a secret from everyone.

This is really a mixed up, twisted up story in every way, and I love the way Colleen keeps the plot so tangled up, keeping readers guessing about what is happening, and who is behind all of the secrets. And the ending, well…..I never, ever would have guessed how everyone would unfold. Thats what makes Ms. Coble the awesome author she is, showing the expert writer she is. You don’t want to miss this second book in The Hope Beach Series, Rosemary’s Cottage. And don’t forget to pick up the first book in the series, Tidewater Inn.

About the Book
Sometimes it takes a stranger to see you as you really are.

Under Texas Stars, Book 2

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.

Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby’s under suspicion for the crime.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Libby loves old historical buildings so much that she has made a career out of it. She and her best friend and partner Nicole restores old buildings and sells them. Little did Libby know that she would inherit a masterpiece historical building for herself, and from family she didn’t even know she had.

Wow, another awesome read from Colleen Coble. Libby’s arrival on the Island, finding out she was now owner of the Tidewater Inn, and meeting her new family and the folks on the Island was more than Libby could comprehend. And then when the lights are turned on her as a suspect in her friends murder, well things start getting a little touchy, nasty and very intense and interesting on this small little Island.

Libby is a sweetheart and everyone can learn from her soft spoken, graceful attitude. And for me, the question What Would Jesus Do? Now has a whole new meaning. And Alec is a man everyone wants to have! He’s just adorable! Colleen has created a cast of characters in Tidewater Inn that you will grow to love and adore. The are so very real-life that I sometimes felt like they were family or close friends. I love characters that give readers this feeling. And Aunt Pearl, a character created in the image of Colleen’s own grandmother is the binding that brings the story together. Between Aunt Pearl and Ray’s love for the Lord, my desire is to be more like these two wonderful characters. People who selflessly love God and show it in their everyday lives.

Blue Moon Promise……By: Colleen Coble

Blue Moon Promise

By: Colleen Coble

Book Description

“Tell me, Miss Marsh, are you a Christian?”

“Why, yes sir, I am.”

“I thought as much. God has led me here for a purpose…

I have a proposition for you.”

Lucy Marsh’s worldly resources are running out, but she’s fiercely determined to care for her younger brother and sister. When she discovers that their father’s recent death was no accident, Lucy is eager to leave town. She accepts a proxy marriage she believes will provide safe refuge. But trouble follows her to Wichita Falls, Texas, where the man she came to marry seems surprised to suddenly have a wife and children to provide for.

Nate Stanton always hoped he’d marry someday, but running the family ranch meant he had no time for romance. When his father deposits Lucy Marsh—a city girl—on his doorstep, with two siblings in the bargain, he expects ranch life will send her running on the first train out of town. But Lucy is made of tougher stuff than Nate imagined. When danger moves in, Nate realizes he’d give anything to protect Lucy and the children he’s grown to love. Even if it means giving up his ranch.

Blue Moon Promise is a story of hope, romance and suspense…immersing the reader in a rich historical tale set under Texas stars.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

For the men out there, what would you do if your father left town for several days, came back home with a woman and introduced her as Lucy, your new wife? Well that is just what happened to Nate Stanton. And he was not happy with his dad, to say the least. And to gain his wife’s two siblings, Jed and Eileen too boot, well that was almost more than Nate could take.

 

After somewhat coming to terms with the new marriage, in name only let me tell you, Nate moved his new family into his small home. Surely this would send her back where she came from, because his home was not much of a home, and small at that. But Nate ended up being the surprised one. And after a while he kind of enjoyed not coming home to a empty house. And Jed was turning out to be a lot of help on the farm, and little Eileen, well she’d just had Nate’s heart from the beginning. Things could start getting very interesting around the Stanton household. But it was when secrets and deception started coming to the surface that Nate really realized what was going on. And for that, you need to read the book to find out all of the many secrets, acts of deception and of course the twists and turns to the story that make it so appealing.

 

I love Colleen Coble’s books. I have all of them, and have read them all as well, and this one didn’t disappoint. Colleen has a way of creating characters that just draw you into the story and don’t let you go. Nate and Lucy was fun and interesting as they started their life together. This is really just a nice, fun, good clean book to read and enjoy. And I’m hoping for a Book Two to enjoy more of Nate and Lucy’s journey through their marriage and on their farm.
