Book Review: "Twilight at Blueberry Barrens"

Colleen Coble's third book in her Sunset Cove series is at least as exciting as the first two. In this book, we get to know Kate Mason, a secondary character from the first book in the series, much better. Thanks to her sister, she's recuperating from the disease that almost took her life. She's also giving all she has to keeping the blueberry farm her mother and uncle ran going in their absence. Her heart isn't in it, but from her point of view, it must be done.

When the blueberry crop fails to do as well as she'd hoped, Kate starts looking for another source of income to get her through the season. That's when Drake Newham shows up, two nieces in tow, determined to solve the mystery of his brother and sister-in-law's violent deaths. He rents the cottage on Kate's property, hires her to watch the girls, and asks her help in finding the truth.

Kate soon has her own set of problems to navigate around and must enlist Drake's help as well. Two strangers must work together to protect each other, their families, and their friends while seeking answers to too many questions.

The story kept my attention, but I really appreciated watching Kate's character gain strength and confidence for her future while overcoming the hurts of her past. I recommend this book to fans of Christian suspense fiction. Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me a complimentary copy in exchange for this review.
