I receive free electronic advanced reader copies of these books through an arrangement between the publishers and NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion on NetGalley’s website. I only review books on my blog that I really love.
It takes a great writer to pull off successful novel trilogies, and Colleen Coble has done it again!
Are You a Fan of Novel Trilogies?
Novel trilogies, like movie trilogies, have their drawbacks. Mostly, the waiting between books or movies for all the storylines to conclude neatly. It takes a certain kind of writer to write a satisfying novel trilogy. The conflict of each novel must find a resolution before the end, while at the same time, the author must continue hinting at the problem which will cause tension in the third book.
Colleen Coble proves, once again, that she has the right touch for a successful trilogy.
By Colleen Coble, Thomas Nelson, July 4, 2023, 336 pages.
Annie Pederson, a single mom and Park law enforcement officer, thinks she can see the light at the end of a very long tunnel. Personal tragedy has haunted her for decades—first with the disappearance of her younger sister, Sarah, then the tragic deaths of her parents and husband.
When her high school sweetheart, Jon Dunstan, reenters her life (you can read about it in book one of the trilogy), Annie takes a chance and rekindles their relationship. When she discovers Jon is Kylie’s biological daughter, she struggles to know how to break the news to everyone in her life. Even worse, Kylie seems to hate Jon. But things have taken a turn for the better. Jon and Kylie have established a friendship, and Annie’s caseload lets up after she captures a violent criminal in the trilogy’s second book.
When the man she captured escapes custody, Annie fears for her sister Sarah’s life. She’ll do anything to protect her family. But she has no idea the safe harbor she found for Sarah isn’t safe at all. When Annie becomes the target of a hunt, she’ll have to use all her skills and intuition to keep the killers at bay until Jon can bring help.
What I Loved About This Book
Coble finishes out the Annie Pederson trilogy with mind-bending twists and turns as Annie discovers the shocking answer to the disappearances of hikers and park visitors. Readers who deal with blended families will appreciate Annie and Jon’s struggle to figure out relationships with extended families. The storyline between Annie and Sarah highlights the difference grace can make in our lives—both when we accept it and when we extend it to others.If you're a fan of Inspirational Suspense trilogies, you'll love the last installment in this series by @ColleenCoble #BreakofDay #amreading #inspy Click To Tweet
