Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.
But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.
At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.
In this new series, bestselling romantic-suspense author Colleen Coble returns to one of her most beloved towns, where familiar faces—and unsolved cases—await.
About The Author
I enjoyed this Christian suspense read! There is a lot going on here, and there is a beautiful setting, one that should bring peace of mind, but there is evil lurking!
The story starts with a body washing up, and then a cold case of missing teens surfaces, and also it has been twenty-four years, that Annie Pederson's sister went missing.
Jon Dustin is also back after being gone for nine years! Suspicion revolves around this talented Surgeon, he is a suspect in the missing girls, he said he just gave them a ride?
Wow! So much going on here, and some answers come, and yes, there are a lot of surprises. I am hoping that more answers are revealed in the coming books, I felt like I was left hanging with some of my questions!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
