June 19, 2013
Colleen Coble in her new book "Without A Trace" Book One in the Rock Harbor series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Bree Matthews and Samson, her search-and-rescue dog.
From the back cover: Bree thinks a plane crash took the lives of her husband and young son, but her son Davy survived the accident. Can she find him before it's too late?
It's been months since the crash. K-9 search-and-rescue worker Bree Nicholls knows the chances of finding her husband and son in the vast wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula grow more remote by the day. But her heart and her faithful dog, Samson, demand she keep searching.
Deep in the woods a young boy wakes in a tiny cabin. He's being nursed back to health by a reclusive woman, but he can't figure out why she calls him by a name he doesn't recognize. Or why she's calling herself his mother. He wants to leave, but as winter sets in, his very life depends on her care.
Meanwhile, Bree's relentless determination to find her family has uncovered a violent crime. With the help of Park Ranger Kade Matthews, she discovers the violence may be linked to the plane crash that took her family. Could solving the crime bring her peace with her own loss? Or, more incredibly, reunite her family?
Set in the untamed beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Rock Harbor novels draw readers into the life and adventures of a canine search-and-rescue team as it unravels the secrets of an enchanting wilderness.
Bree Matthews and Samson, her specially trained dog are a K-9 search and rescue team in the rugged wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The minute I hear search-and-rescue I immediately feel the immediacy of the moment. Someone is missing, there is trouble involved and there is no time to waste. Colleen Coble knows exactly how to bring all of that to the story and more. Danger, suspense, mystery "Without A Trace" has it all. Bree Matthews is looking for closure as to what happened to her husband's plane with her husband and young son aboard. Someone has committed murder in the town of Rock Harbor and it is going to take everything that Bree and Sampson can give to find out who it is. This is a fast-paced read that will keep you flipping pages to keep up with the story. Ms. Coble has done an outstanding job. I want to have more stories about Bree Matthews at Rock Harbor.
