Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble (review by Cathy)


About the book:

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 loved this series and have looked forward to each one of the books. This one was the best one as far as I’m concerned and totally worth the wait.

l must confess to being on the edge of my seat while reading it and feeling a bit anxious as I quickly turned the pages. 

Kate was a character that I liked and much more brave than I’ve ever been. She had some encounters with her unsavory, Uncle Paul.  He was an odd one to say the very least, even though he did care about Kate. 

Drake won my heart. His love for his family was very touching. Especially the love he had for his two nieces, having their best interests at heart.

The natural progression of Kate’s and Drake’s relationship was something else I enjoyed, especially since he had the two young girls in his care.

The story is fast paced and will keep you guessing.  The end is a bit of a shocker which is what the author does best, she always surprises me.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
