Edge of Dusk by Colleen Coble: A Book Review

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Even though secrets lie off the coast of Rock Harbor, the truth will set Annie Pederson free—if it doesn’t kill her first. Return to the beloved town of Rock Harbor in the first installment of a new series by bestselling suspense author Colleen Coble.

Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.

But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.

At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.

In this new series, bestselling romantic-suspense author Colleen Coble returns to one of her most beloved towns, where familiar faces—and unsolved cases—await.

Once again, Colleen Coble has absolutely knocked it out of the park with another edge of your seat suspense. As one of my personal favorite authors, I know I am in for a great story when I see her name on the cover and Edge of Dusk is absolutely no exception. 

From page one, I was drawn into the story and couldn't put it down. These characters were wonderfully written and had such depth to them that I couldn't help but want to read on. There were a lot of elements to the story, and it really kept things interesting, not only for this novel, but in getting me to want to read the next. Of course, being a fan of Colleen's previous novels I was absolutely thrilled to head back to Rock Harbor and see Bree and Samson again. (Those who have not read that series can certainly enjoy this one on it's own as well, though I'd certainly recommend it as it's a great one too!) Admittedly, I did figure out some of the twists before they were revealed but I do read a lot of suspense so I definitely pick up on things more quickly because of that. 

Overall, this was a fantastic read and has me looking forward to what comes next.
