Deb’s Dozens: Kate’s blue; the blueberries—ruined, her prospects—barren. Drake Newham—a rescuer?
What fun to reacquaint yourself with characters you loved. Colleen Coble’s Sunset Cove series ends with Twilight at Blueberry Barrens. We will love to live Kate Mason’s story—she’s had such a tragic life. After being reunited with a sister she didn’t know she had, Kate’s blue. Her beloved blueberry barrens are just that—barren. And now her sister, Claire, and her new husband, Luke, are married and she feels alone again. With her sister off on her honeymoon and no income in sight, Kate decides to renovate and rent the cottage across the road from hers.
Enter Drake Newham, newly parenting the two little girls left behind by the apparent murder-suicide of their parents. Drake is rich and quite convinced his brother was murdered. Their meeting appears to solve problems for both of them. Kate will be a nanny for the girls and Drake will rent the cottage. That solves Kate’s immediate financial problems—but what about Drake’s brother? Another four star book!
Twilight at Blueberry Barrens is set on the beautiful coast of Maine. Colleen and her husband, Dave, researched the area and fell in love. Maine is the setting for all three of the Sunset Cove books and you will fall in love with the Maine Coast from the descriptions. Colleen always visits the locale of her stories so the details and descriptions will be accurate. I believe I’ve read most, if not all, of Colleen’s books and never get tired of reading her stories. Her characters come to life and you can’t help but care about them. Kate Mason and Drake Newham are no exception and the two little girls are adorable.
Colleen is a USA Today best-selling novelist, who has almost four million books in print. She writes romantic suspense/mysteries because “she likes to see justice prevail.” In addition to writing, Colleen serves as CEO of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives with her husband, Dave, in Indiana.
Thomas Nelson Books gave me a copy of Twilight at Blueberry Barrens, but I was in no way obligated to write a favorable review.
