This page-turner is a suspense-filled story right from the beginning with an abandoned baby in peril of freezing to death in the harsh Michigan winter. It's a book that I did not want to put down, and therefore, I read it over the space of a 24-hour period. The characters were familiar to me as I had read an earlier Rock Harbor mystery, but even if this is your first Colleen Coble novel, the characters will seem like family before too many pages. The people of the small Michigan town are easy to know.What a complex turn of events Bree has to face! After grieving for her first husband, who died in a plane crash, Bree is happily married for the second time, when husband number one reappears. Is he a ghost or a windigo as some claim? What connection is there to the missing babies? Was a woman murdered, or was it an unfortunate accident?Interwoven is the continuing story of Samson, a search and rescue dog. If you enjoy suspense, this one's for you.
"Alas poor Bree" is what you will utter while you read this book! We're taken back to the familiar setting of Rock Harbor where we get to meet up with old friends again. I always like it when authors go back to their older series and give the reader another book to catch up again with everyone. This series is a favorite of mine as I love reading about the adventures of Bree and her wonderdog Samson. It was great to visit the area again and I enjoyed seeing all the characters interact and come to life. This book had the best mystery story of the series and the most personal. I honestly do not know what I would have done in Bree's situation. I would have been as shocked as she was. I'm glad though she has Kade, as he is the perfect and the right man for her and David. It was also good to see what Laurie was up to and see her true feelings about the child she gave up for adoption. This book incorporated several issues such as baby buying, ethics issues, and spiritual legends. It's all wrapped up in a suspense story that tells us that we need to trust in God no matter what happens. The book does stand alone so if you haven't read any of the Rock Harbor series before, you won't be totally lost. However to get the full impact of the story, the other 3 books should be read. Hopefully this isn't the last we'll see of Bree, Kade and Samson. I feel like there's more of their stories just waiting to be told!
I depend on Colleen Coble to give me a good read and again was not disappointed. The edge of your seat excitement starts in the very beginning and goes all the way thru to the end. Cry In The Night is a must read for Colleen Coble fans. Great book
With her latest book, Colleen Coble takes her readers back to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and into Bree Nichols Matthew's life. If you've read the earlier books, then you will be thrilled to walk the streets of Rock Harbor, wave at the friendly faces you remember, and hunker down for another page-turning suspense. If this is your first venture to the area, you'll soon find yourself engrossed in the tale of all that is happening to Bree, her search and rescue dog Samson, and her son Davy. You may decide after the read -- since you won't need it during the book -- that you'd like to find out more about Bree and go back for the earlier adventures.In Cry in the Night, Bree is confronted with her worst nightmare. She's found an abandoned infant in the frozen wilderness and has welcomed the baby girl into her home -- and heart -- even as Kade cautions her to be careful. Then as she hunts for the baby's mother, the clues keep pointing to her first husband's mysterious plane crash. The more she picks away at the puzzle, the more she wonders if the very fibers of her life -- and love -- will be swept away.I knew where this book was heading, because of some brainstorming in the early days of this book, and I honestly didn't know if Colleen could pull all the twists off. Especially in a way that would satisfy me as a reader. I kept waiting for a thread to unravel taking a large part of the story with it, but instead, the fibers of the story pulled tighter and tighter until they seemed to pull a taunt noose around Bree. And even though Bree is happily married, the romance will satisfy those of you who refuse to read a story that does have a strong romantic thread.This is another great offering from Colleen Coble. If you like suspense with a strong romantic thread, you will enjoy this book!
