Review: Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by:Colleen Coble
About the Book:
“I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”
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.
Amazing heart wrenching story that is perfect for a bustling fall day with a cup of hot tea by the fire. This book screams warm cozy fire to me. It's hard to make a living in this world but its even harder if you are female. This story literally has it all. Mystery, suspense, women issues that literally span many categories, drama, love, intrigue you name it, it's there. So many things to keep you hanging on every word and every page.
Kate has to make this work she has no other choice. She is trying to pour her heart and soul into something that isn't bringing much of a return and she cant sit back and let that happen, she has to do something. Soon something just falls into Kate's lap and it seems to be the answer to all of her problems. Soon friendship turns into feelings for something more as she seems to get to know Drake and and his girls on a more personal level. Kate soon receives bad news that means bad news for her and it has struck a fear in her.
Colleen Coble is one of my all time favorites. She is a very talented writer that can take a jumbled mess of many different genres and create the perfect story line. I don't know how she does it but I get to reap the benefits of a job well done. Love the characters in this one especially Kate. I feel real bad for her though because she has the weight of the world on her shoulders.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
