Review: Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble

twilight-at-blueberry-barrensI really enjoyed returning to the characters and setting of the Sunset Cove novels. Twilight at Blueberry Barrens is book three in the series. The relationship between the sisters, Kate and Claire, will be more easily understood if book one is read first, however, I thought the author did a good job of summing up past events, so it could be possible to read this novel as a stand alone if desired.

This story does a great job of combining some very disturbing suspense involving murder and a stalker, while also providing a very heartfelt love story. Intense hurt from the past and worry about the future tends to weigh Kate down. Feelings of not being worthy also pull at her. It was wonderful to watch her budding relationship with Drake and the girls. Kate grew so much in this novel and learned to value herself as the person the Lord created her to be.

The suspense was nicely threaded throughout the story and provided enough tension to keep me on edge and cringe as events unfurled. I definitely recommend this entire series to fans of romantic suspense.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


twilight-at-blueberry-barrensKate 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.
