Two Reasons to Run (Pelican Harbor #2) by Colleen Coble {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.  






A lie changed her world.

Police Chief Jane Hardy is still reeling from the scandal that rocked her small-town department just as she took over for her retired father—the man who wrecked her life with one little lie. Now she’s finally been reunited with her presumed-dead fifteen-year-old son, Will, and his father, documentarian Reid Bechtol. 

A crisis looms. 

When a murder aboard the oil platform Zeus exposes an environmental terrorist’s plot to flood Mobile Bay with crude oil, Jane and Reid must put their feelings for each other behind them and work together to prevent the rig from being sabotaged. 

A killer targets her son. 

Then the terrorist puts her son Will’s life on the line. Protecting him could be the common ground they need . . . but then ghosts from the past threaten to ruin Jane and Reid for good. 

She’s got plenty of reasons to run. But what if she stays?

When it comes to favorite, must read authors, Colleen Coble is without a doubt at the very top of my list. I always know that when I sit down with one of her suspense novels, I am in for an absolute treat. Two Reasons to Run was no exception. This is the second book in the Pelican Harbor series. While I think you probably could read this book as a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading the first book first. There is a lot of backstory given about Jane and Reid's history that I feel would definitely help readers to feel more invested in their story.

And oh what a story it is! This book picks up right after the first book ends, but the primary mystery is a story on it's own. When an apparent murder occurs on the oil platform, Jane learns that he had sent a warning before his death about a possible upcoming terror attack. As Jane starts to investigate, things take a more personal turn with threats on her family. From start to finish, I could not put this book down! The action was nonstop, and the mystery kept me on my toes right through to the very end. I absolutely loved it. 

More than that though, I loved seeing more from these fantastic characters. Their romance is rather unique and complicated, to say the least... but I love their chemistry and enjoyed seeing the family dynamic begin to form. With more questions still unanswered, I cannot wait to see what comes next! If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is one book and series you do NOT want to miss!
