Fiction Book Review: Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble

Book Description:
Kate 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.


My Review:
I've read all of the Sunset Cove novels, and Twilight at Blueberry Barrens is Colleen's best. Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. The story brings suspense, romance, friendship, family, and faith together to create a tale that touches the heart and makes the blood race. I love Kate's character because she's been through the ringer, yet she remains brave and finds hope and joy in every day. Drake is also an amazing character as he tries to make sense of what has happened to his brother and does his best to take care of his family. The setting of Twilight at Blackberry Barrens is fantastic. I love books set on the coast of Maine. Colleen does an exceptional job creating a setting that made me feel like I was there. If you're looking for a good read I highly recommend this book. I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
