No, you haven't entered a travel brochure. Allow me to introduce you to Colleen Coble's exotic new Hawaiian series, Aloha Reef.
In the opening chapters of book one, Distant Echoes, dolphin researcher Kaia Oana and her brothers are enjoying a typical day on the water. Her brothers fish as Kaia swims with Nani, one of the bottle-nosed dolphins she is teaching to communicate.
Then, as they prepare to head back to shore, disaster strikes. An errant missile sweeps past them and hits a tourist boat. Kaia and her brothers race to rescue survivors from the water as a military vessel hurries to the scene. Fatalities are few, but one casualty brings the tragedy close to home for Kaia and her family.
Lieutenant Commander Jesse Matthews watches the scene from his military vessel. Testing of the new missile defense system failed. But was it just a computer error? A witness on the tour boat claims the missile came straight at them, as if they were the target. And a recent break-in at the naval base raises the question: Was this just an accident, or did someone tamper with the missile system?
The security of the naval base is Jesse's main concern. He enlists Kaia and her dolphin to help protect the naval base waters after break-ins continue at the compound. But when stolen missile secrets turn up in Jesse's house, he and Kaia have no option but to continue the investigation on their own.Read more ›
Colleen Coble creates characters you can love including a dolphin that nearly steals the show. These characters struggle with political and social issues while at the same time worrying about their own jobs and families. Once I got started I could not set it down. I suggest reading this book in the morning.

Distant Echoes was set in beautiful Hawaii with a dolphin trainer that made you want to be there. It was well written Christian fiction with a theme of forgiveness. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Art Brammer
Once again, Colleen Coble gives an engaging premise, but falls short in many areas. Kaia is a great character, and Jesse seems like a good match for her. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Stephanie McCall
I have ready many of Ms Coble's books and enjoyed them all. Kauai is my favorite Hawaiian island and it was easy to "see" the sights as the story progressed. Read morePublished 9 months ago by BizLady1
Never quite knew what would happen next, but that is what suspense plots are all about! Enjoyed learning about the islands too. Aloha!Published 10 months ago by B. Zarrella
