A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Dark of Night by Colleen Coble: Book Review

*Book received for consideration. All thoughts 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.

Dark of Night is the second book in Colleen Coble's new Annie Pederson series. While there is a new primary mystery in this book, it picks up right where the first book ended and truly should be read in order to get the most out of it. While it might be okay as a standalone, I definitely feel like there will be a lot of confusion on the relationships between the various characters. There were some unanswered questions from book one that we dive right back into with this one, and much like the first, it definitely has me wanting to know what will happen next. 

Colleen Coble is a top favorite of mine, and as such I have pretty high expectations when I pick up one of her books and know I will be in for a page turning adventure. This one does not disappoint. There is a lot going on in the story in many different directions, and yet it's well written without any confusion. I loved how all the aspects of the story weaved together and all in all created a story that truly had me on the edge of my seat. I haven't read a book by this author I have not enjoyed, but I must say that this particular series is shaping up to be my favorite yet. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next one...I need more!
