CFBA Blog Tour: A Cry in the Night by Colleen Coble

Several years ago I picked up Book One of Colleen Coble's Rock Harbor series about a young woman and a search dog named Samson who lived in a fictional town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. From the first page I was hooked. Fell in love with Bree, the heroine. Fell in love with Samson, her dog. Fell in love with her mother-in-law and their relationship in spite of Bree's husband being killed in a plane crash. I also fell in love with a number of other characters, and when a new man came into Bree's life in later books, I fell in love with Kade. All along I fell in love with Rock Harbor the town and the surroundings. As always Colleen always has a way with making her story settings almost become a character in the story unto themselves. Then the books stopped and Colleen went on to write other amazing novels set in other places.

When I heard Colleen was going to write another Rock Harbor series I was elated to say the least. And when it arrived in my mailbox several weeks ago I couldn't wait to rejoin my favorite characters in one of my favorite settings. I wasn't disappointed either!

Almost from the first page of enjoying my reunion with old friends the tension was ratcheted up and it never stopped. Colleen is a master at doing this as she spins a tale that keeps the pages turning. The story twists and turns and keeps the reader guessing up to the end as to how all the puzzle pieces will fit together.

I hope that with this novel more will be forthcoming for this wonderful series. Below you'll find a bio of Colleen and a short description of the story. You can link to a copy of the first chapter and also to Amazon to purchase your very own copy!

The highly anticipated novel that delivers what romantic suspense fans have long awaited-the return to Rock Harbor.

Bree Nichols gets the shock of her life when her husband-presumed dead-reappears.

Bree Nichols and her search and rescue dog Samson discover a crying infant in the densely forested woods outside of Rock Harbor, Michigan. Against objections from her husband, Kade, who knows she'll become attached, Bree takes the baby in. Quickly she begins a search for the mother-presumably the woman reported missing just days earlier.
While teams scour the forests, Bree ferrets out clues about the missing woman. But she soon discovers something more shocking: Bree's former husband-long presumed dead in a plane crash-resurfaces. Is he really who he says he is? And should she trust him again after all these years?
An engaging, romantic suspense novel from critically-acclaimed author Colleen Coble.
