"Lani opened her eyes fully, straining to see something, anything. It was as though she swam in a black sea that blacked out all light, all visual sensation. 'I can't see,' she whispered. 'I can't see!' Her shriek rose and echoed off the blackness."
A seemingly random shooting at her aunt's coffee farm has left Lani Tagama blind. Now she must learn to navigate in a world of darkness. With the help of an embittered ex-cop, Ben, and a half-trained guide dog, Fisher, Lani discovers she can regain a shadow of her former independence.
But strange and dangerous secrets lurk behind the beauty of this seaside paradise. Suspicion grows that this was not a random shooting, but an attempted murder, one with its roots in a hippie commune burned over thirty year ago. Lani realizes she is a target, and that she must find the shooter before he strikes again.
USA Today bestselling author Colleen Coble has written several romantic suspense novels including Tidewater Inn, Rosemary Cottage, and the Mercy Falls, Lonestar, and Rock Harbor series. Visit her website at www.colleencoble.com Twitter: @colleencoble Facebook: colleencoblebooks
ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Satisfying Conclusion to a great seriesFebruary 19, 2014ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Colleen Coble does it again! I cannot say enough good things about this writer. From the first page, I was hooked. The mystery, suspense, and romance were expertly weaved into a story of deception and trust. The plot was interesting and kept me guessing the entire time.
Lani Tagama was my favorite character. After her ordeal in Black Sands, she becomes a Christian. It's nice to see the human side of someone who is a new Christian. She struggles to put her trust in someone she can't see, and that makes her more real. Ben Mahoney is struggling to cope with the accident that claimed his friend's sight. He is also struggling with trusting the One who controls all things in our lives. The author did a very good job of portraying their development in this area.
The message, as I've stated before, is trust. Learning to trust that God has everything under control, especially when you feel your life is spinning out of control, is hard. Colleen Coble does a great job of weaving that message throughout the story.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable story and I'm sad the series has come to an end. Go read it, today!

Roseanne Thurmond5 Stars Out Of 5March 22, 2010Roseanne ThurmondReally enjoyed reading this book. I felt like I was actually on the island with all the sights, sounds and fragrances all around me. I learned about orchids and more importantly, about how it feels to be sightless even if only briefly.What really drew me to purchase this book was the interaction between Ben,Lani and Fisher.I am a dog lover and appreciated Ben's dedication to training dogs for the blind.
Lisa5 Stars Out Of 5January 26, 2009LisaThis was a good book. It was the second of Colleen Coble's books that I have read. I purchased it because I enjoy the "Women of Faith" series of book selections. I usually don't like mysteries or reading about people getting murdered as my reading time is usually before bedtime!! However, Colleen's storyline is so solid and structured that it's much more than just a "murder mystery". It was a real page turner for me and a book I would definitely recommend to others.
