Review: Dark of Night by Colleen Coble

After listening to book one, Edge of Dusk, last month, I was so excited and anxious to read this second book in the series. And this is a series that you definitely need to read in order, not skipping any books. Everything builds from book one, through book two, and on to book three. Some individual mysteries are solved in each book, yet there is a continuing suspense thread and romantic thread that moves throughout the entire series.

I have an ebook copy of Dark of Night, but I actually ended up listening to the audio version and can definitely recommend it as an audiobook that I thoroughly enjoyed. My romantic heart liked the continuing second chance at love connection that Annie and Jon were building on. Their path to renewing their relationship had a couple of hiccups along the way, yet I felt that they were stronger together by the end of the book. I also liked the growth in Annie’s daughter, Kylie.

There was plenty of suspense, action, danger, and “hold your breath” moments in this story to thrill suspense lovers. I am anxious to read the final book in the series!

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


The law is about justice—not grace. But perhaps ranger Annie Pederson can find a way to have both.

As if the last few months haven’t been hard enough—complete with threats on her life and the return of her first love, Jon—Annie has to figure out whether or not to believe a woman who claims to be her sister, Sarah, who was abducted twenty-four years ago at age five. Annie’s eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, has plenty of questions about what’s going on in her mother’s life—but there are some stories Annie doesn’t want uncovered.

As Annie grapples with how to heal the gulf between her and her would-be sister and make room in her daughter’s life for Jon, she’s professionally distracted by the case of yet another missing hiker in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A woman named Michelle Fraser has now been abducted, and though the woman’s estranged husband is at the top of their suspect list, Annie and her colleagues will need to dig deeper to determine whether these recent mysteries are truly as unrelated as they seem.

In this second novel of bestselling author Colleen Coble’s latest romantic-suspense series, Annie and Jon must fight for the future—and the family—that could once more be theirs.
