Angela BycroftOwhango, New ZealandAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Another Suspensful Visit to Rock Harbour.November 18, 2017Angela BycroftOwhango, New ZealandAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Colleen Cobles latest suspenseful tale is also a welcome return to Rock Harbour which is a series that I have read some but not all of the available titles.
911 dispatcher Dana Newel has returned to her family home after escaping an abusive relationship. But she soon realises that sometimes that even in the most tranquil of settings can still not fully protect us from the outside world - as the very things she ran from have followed her here.
This was a truly suspenseful tale with lots of twists and turns - there seemed to be multiple possible baddies and just the right amount of romance as well.
The setting was also magically rendered - vivid description so that you could almost feel the chill of the air and the frozen landscape. Very atmospheric.
Recommended reading especially on a cold, rainy weekend curled up by the fire of course.

Jennifer M3 Stars Out Of 5Beneath Copper FallsNovember 12, 2017Jennifer MQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Beneath Copper Falls is a fast-paced mystery, suspense, and romance all crafted into one story. It centers around Dana Newell, a 911 operator who escapes an abuse partner and returns to Copper Falls; and Boone Carter, a local man still trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of his sister. Together, they try to make sense of a string of murders, and whether or not they are connected to his sister's death, or to Dana's violent ex-fiance.
I really enjoy Colleen Coble's writing, and I really enjoy reading suspenseful books. The characters were well-developed and likable (at least the ones who were meant to be likable) and it was easy to root for Dana and Boone. The story moved quickly, and built in intensity right up until the climactic finale.
My one real gripe is that I figured out who the killer was halfway through the book. It didn't completely stop me from enjoying the rest of the book, because I still got to see how it all played out. However, it was very frustrating to know more than the characters, and at certain points I wanted to yell at them, "How can you not see who it is??"
Overall though, it was a well-written, fast-paced read. I just wish I hadn't solved the mystery SO much sooner than the characters.

Jennybug524 Stars Out Of 5Beneath Copper FallsOctober 20, 2017Jennybug52Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 54 stars- I have only read a few of Colleen Coble's books and I won't lie, they have been a bit hit or miss for me. I admit I was a bit hesitant to read this one, but I must say that I really enjoyed this book. It is book seven in the Rock Harbor series but is its own story. Characters from previous books are in this story but you don't need to know their history to follow this one.
I thought the story was realistic in the sense that the characters led everyday lives and the things that happened to them and the choices they made didn't strike me as highly unlikely or crazy. I felt that Boone and Dana were believable characters and I liked them both. The author did a great job of creating a suspenseful story that kept you guessing without making everything seem way too over the top or extreme. I thought the choices (most of them at least) the characters made seemed plausible and I liked how the author gave you just enough to keep your mind wondering about characters' motives. This was a well-crafted, suspenseful novel that kept me reading way too long past my bedtime. I think I may take a look into reading the other books in the series so I can learn more about Bree and the rest of Rock Harbor.
I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.

Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Intriguing mysterySeptember 25, 2017Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 0Colleen Coble's Beneath Copper Falls is an intriguing story of murder and mystery that stretches from Washington state to Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
The story is filled with interesting characters, including several who are involved in and work with search and rescue dogs. A variety of characters pop up as potential murder suspects before the story starts to turn toward the real criminal. As a word of caution to potential readers, there are a lot of dark moments as the mystery plays out.
Colleen has written several other books in the Rock Harbor series. If you have read those, you will already be familiar with many of the characters and their stories. I had not read any of the others and found no problem with this as a stand-alone.
Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for providing a copy of this book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.
