EmP2416Age: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Wowza!August 16, 2018EmP2416Age: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5WOW! Lost a lot of sleep because of this little gem. This is the first Rock Harbor book I have picked up (I know, I know...) but it will not be my last one! I really enjoyed reading Colleen's " The House at Saltwater Point," so I knew a bit of what to expect of her writing style.
Well written storyline, great characters you can empathize and root for, a beautiful locale...what's not to like about this book? I did not in the least suspect the killer prior to the reveal, and I loved the CSI/crime story genre of "Haven of Swans."
Colleen is very detail oriented and thorough, which I always appreciate in a read like this. Serial killers, an amnesiac, the world of ballet, a cult...so much to keep up with, but Colleen blends it all effortlessly!
I had set the book down for a period of time due to other obligations, but I am so glad I picked it back up and finished-- I would have been sad to miss out on this awesome read. I have a long list to catch up to in this series and some of Colleen's others. This would also be good for a gift for someone who enjoys crime novels. I appreciated the hopeful way the characters handled their faith journeys, also.

This one really threw me for a loop. When I thought I knew who the serial killer was my mind was absolutely blown. You are at first see the book through the eyes of the killer - isn't that a bite - then you are seeing through one of the victims who got away but who has a missing memory - that is the second bite - and she is getting away from a killer and she sees a car - is it the killer or is it a helper of her and yes a child in her arms - hers or who's another victim the killers? So, does she get into the car with the killer or the right person? and when you find out and find out who the killer is you just will blow your mind into a million pieces like you have never done before, and you will enjoy it...........I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
MarbieThe NetherlandsAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Creepy SuspenseMay 10, 2017MarbieThe NetherlandsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This was a bit of a creepy read. However not too creepy that I couldn't finish reading it. I liked the characters and they drew me back into the story, but I didn't care to read what the killer did to his victims. Eventhough it wasn't told in detail, my imagination did the work on its own. It was just gross. There were times I wondered "what the heck am I reading?" Well, I finished reading it, partly because I wanted to figure out who the bad guy was. All in all, an okay read, but not a book I would return to.

Takes place in Rock Harbor, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It starts off with the dark side, showing the killer's view. Another side of him going home and kissing his daughter good night.

There is more killing so another cop shows up, this woman refugee feels a connection to him. Yet, is it good or should she be leery of him.

Michelle5 Stars Out Of 5A Chilling Mystery that Keeps You on the Edge of Your Seat!May 1, 2017MichelleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Rarely does a novel capture your attention from the start and not take time setting the stage before the story really begins. Colleen Coble has mastered plot development and giving just enough details to get the story rolling on page 1. Haven of Swans by Colleen Coble begins with a woman and child stranded on a roadside, injured and with amnesia. The main character Eve does not remember much about her life. All she has left is fear that someone wants her dead. The story continues with many twists and turnsyou will not be able to put it down! Colleen Coble fans and any fans of mysteries/thrillers will not be disappointed! This books is part of the Rock Harbor series and does include characters from the other books in this series. However, it can be read as a stand alone novel without any difficulties. I received a digital copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
