Book Description

As Christmas day nears, Bree and her faithful search-and-rescue dog Samson follow the trail of a troubling mystery into the snowy forests of Rock Harbor.

Bree Matthews is preparing for Christmas guests, but her heart is reeling from the recent and tender loss of her unborn child. Her sister-in-law, Lauri, suddenly turns up on the doorstep of the lighthouse home Bree shares with her husband, Kade, in Rock Harbor. Secretive and withdrawn, Lauri seems curiously intent on discovering what happened to a parachuter who disappeared in the North Woods along Lake Superior's icy shore.

As Bree and Samson, her search-and-rescue dog, plunge into the search, Bree wonders if Lauri may know more than she’s admitted about the parachuter. And then the clues lead them to the trail of a young woman whose family fears the worst about her disappearance.

Will the search on this snowy, silent night lead Bree and Samson to more than clues about the missing girl? And will Bree’s prayer for a baby ever be answered?

4.0 out of 5 stars Silent Night by Colleen Coble November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fun story! I really liked Bree ... she just seemed so down-to-earth and a little feisty. My kind of woman! The mystery part of the story happened pretty quickly (but the book is only 80 pages!), but it was still an intriguing plot.

I really enjoyed the secondary story as well, which revolved around the relationship between an adoptive mom, a birth mom, and the baby given up for adoption several years prior. It was just a sweet story and really made me think.

If you've read the rest of the Rock Harbor series, I think you'll enjoy this story. If you haven't read the other books in the series (like me!), Silent Night provides a nice introduction to the characters. I'm very much looking forward to reading the rest of the series ... and soon! [4 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson and Litfuse Publicity via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved reading another story about Bree and her family November 10, 2013
By Melanie
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 stars

Silent Night was a great novella, though really short. I loved reading another story about Bree and her family - I loved the Rock Harbor series and Abomination (which is one of my favorite reads). The story wasn't that suspenseful to me, but I still enjoyed it and recommend Silent Night to fans of Colleen Coble and her Rock Harbor series.

I have not read any of other Rock Harbor stories, but I was presented with the opportunity to review this one. It seemed interesting so I thought I'd give it a shot. Listed as Rock Harbor #6 it is a short Christmas novella for the series.

I don't know much about the series or the characters. I have to be honest when I'm writing my review. You want me to be honest. I still feel I don't know much about the characters or the series after reading the novella. A novella is shorter than a novel, but this felt really short. We skimmed the surface of every plot, every point in this story. Every point could have been developed really well and really big. I think the whole story would have made a fabulous novel sized book.

This story is set at Christmastime, but Christmas plays no role in the story except maybe as an excuse to get certain characters together. For everything that happens the events could take place in the summer, spring, winter, or fall. Not to be harsh, but I feel if it is going to be labeled a Christmas novella Christmas needs to play a part.

If you are a fan of Colleen Coble and/or read the Rock Harbor series you will enjoy this book. You will probably wish there was more meat to the story, but you will enjoy it. Good things happen. A surprise. I'm not going to tell you!

I will tell you that this story is about Bree and Kade as well as their dog, Samson, getting entangled in a mystery involving someone they think is Laurie's friend. I know Kade is a boy's name. I know this, but for some reason when I first start reading I would get him confused for the female in the relationship even though I knew Bree was that female.

I read this book as a review request from Book Sneeze. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this review in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars this short novella is a wonderful holiday read December 15, 2012
By Joan N.
Format:Kindle Edition
Christmas is that time of the year when I want to read a heartwarming story. But it is also a busy time of the year so a novella is great.
And Silent Night is a perfect choice.
We are back on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, in Rock Harbor. Bree and Kade are getting their lighthouse home ready for holiday guests. But Lauri, the younger sister Kade has been watching over since their parents died, shows up two weeks early. Has she quit school?
Something strange is going on with Lauri. She claims she was supposed to meet a fellow she knows who was going to parachute on to a near by frozen lake. Except that he was found dead, having landed in trees.
To make matters worse, Bree is not feeling well. She is so tired all of the time.

This was a rewarding read. It's short. You can read it in an evening.
It is part of the Rock Harbor series. I have not read the series yet I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Coble gives enough back information that it is easy to pick right up in the story line.

I received a complimentary egalley of this novella from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a great and exciting read!! November 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is amazing what Colleen Coble can do in a short novel. I have not read the series before but I got interested in this novella from hearing about it. Now I want to read the read the rest of the series. I loved the characters! They were so realistic and relatable. The plot was also great. Kade, Bree, Laurai work together to solve a mystery about a missing woman and a man who died skydiving. It was quite a page turner and I finished it in a few hours. The ending was also very sweet and heart warming. Even if you've never read the series before read this novella! You won't regret it!

Silent Night was a pretty good ending to the Rock Harbor series, but it was really short and the suspense was hardly worth it. It did end well, though.
