WITHOUT A TRACE is set in beautiful Michigan and is the first book in the Rock Harbor series. It's the first book that I've read that was set in Michigan and also featured a search-and-rescue canine team, which I thought was so neat.
Bree Nicholls' life is forever changed when the plane carrying her young son and husband crashes. With no clue where to look for the wreckage, Bree searches the town of Rock Harbor day in and day out with her search-and-rescue dog, Samson hoping to find anything that can tell her what happened to her son and husband.
One thing that I enjoyed with this book is that it focuses on the mystery. While their is a hint of romance, I like that Coble seems to be leading up to a slow burn with these Bree and Kade as they make their way from friends to more. I also thoroughly enjoyed the characters, Samson and Charley and the setting of the book.
Without a Trace is predominately a suspense book, but it's heartwarming and there's a good mystery wrapped up in there. There are references to God and Christianity and a hint of romance, but the suspense element is very much the book. Full of intrigue, suspense and mystery, Coble crafts a novel that leaves you guessing until the end. I can honestly say I never expected who the killer would end up to be.
As a lifelong easterner, I enjoyed reading about the characteristics & culture of the UP of Michigan. And the names!
What perplexes me most is the reviewer(s) and their commenters who despise the faith displayed in Christian fiction. Syrupy fundamentalism? Proselytizing? Why read it at all?
I look forward to the next in the series.
I haven't one iota of knowledge about rescue dogs, so I found those details to be fascinating, and they came across realistic to me. The setting, with it's harsh coldness and impressive terrain, also came across strongly to me as well. There were times that I felt like this series would make a really good TV show. :)
So, all in all, although there were some things I loved and some things I felt apathetic about with this story, I am glad I finally read it and do plan on reading the rest of the series at some point.
Storyline: This is where the novel hooked me. Right away, the novel jumps into a search for two missing kids. It was fascinating reading about Bree and her friend Naomi searching with their dogs. Soon there is what appears to be a murder and things only pick up from there.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. I found the setting and storyline to be unique (and I love stories written in my home state). My only complaint goes back to being introduced to so many characters so quickly. Having finished the novel, I understand why- nearly all of them are quite relevant to the plot and are necessary. I look forward to reading the other books of this series in the future.

If the storey line is one I like.
