After her husband, Jack, dies in a climbing incident, Shauna has only her five-year-old son and her helicopter charter business to live for. Every day is a struggle to make ends meet and she lives in constant fear of losing even more than she already has.

When her business partner is murdered, his final words convince Shauna that she’s in danger too. But where can she turn? Zach Bannister was her husband’s best friend and is the person she blames for his death. She’s barely spoken to him since. But right now he seems her only hope for protecting her son.

Zach is only too happy to assuage his guilt over Jack’s death by helping Shauna any way he can. But there are secrets involved dating back to Shauna’s childhood that more than one person would prefer to stay hidden.

In The View from Rainshadow Bay, suspense, danger, and a longing to love again ignite amid the gorgeous lavender fields of Washington State.

    The View from Rainshadow Bay by Colleen Coble

    The little town of Lavender Tides has seen some unsolved murders. Shauna, a grieving widow, must team up with Zach, her dead husbands best friend and the man she blames for his death, to solve them before harm comes to anyone else. In the middle of the puzzle is a unique necklace belonging to her dead mother. How did her friend Clarence, who was murdered, come to possess the necklace that she thought was buried with her mother? And what part does it play in the events surrounding the deaths?

    This book was suspense laced with romance, with a pretty good balance that kept me reading. I enjoyed the plots twists and turns. The characters were interesting, and I liked learning about their pasts. There were parts of the plot that I found improbable. All in all, it was an enjoyable read and I could see where the author kept the storyline open for a sequel, as not all the questions she raised were answered. It will be fun to see where she takes the story in the next book. I received a free copy from the publisher and this is my honest review.

    Just read the first two pages.

    If you can manage to put the novel down after that and decide you have other things to do instead, I would have to check to see if you are still breathing. Of course, for me, I didn't realize I was holding my breath as I read those first two pages. What begins as a full adrenaline rush with the prologue beginning of The View From Rainshadow Bay, the latest novel from Colleen Coble in her Lavender Tides Series. She is truly one talented author in her ability to jump seamlessly from one genre to another without breaking a sweat.

    In what marks the beginning of a new trilogy, suspense and murder mystery fans will want to jump on this series. The books opens quickly with a murder that will connect itself into the storyline that begins with what has happened a year later. We need that to help connect the dots to what happened earlier and why that would be so relevant to the characters we meet in the novel. Shauna McDade finds herself working through the recent loss of her husband Jack in a climbing incident, and one for which she holds Zach Bannister responsible as his best friend. Now she is forced to make her way as a single parent to her five year old son, as a helicopter charter pilot, using the skills she learned in the Navy. The last thing she needs is another loss on her plate and she will do whatever she can to make ends meet financially.

    But like all great novels, things are about to get messy and complicated, when her business partner is murdered and leaving behind a message that Shauna and her son are in danger as well. Of course, now is when you have to learn to release your breath again, because things have just increased to put Shauna and her son at risk while they try to uncover what it is that is causing them to both be the focal point of a murder threat. She will have to learn to trust Zach again if she hopes to keep her son alive, despite all the threats that are now beginning to appear.

    I received The View From Rainshadow Bay by Colleen Coble compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and TLC Book Tours. I guess you could say I am hooked and I love both a complex mystery to engage my brain, because I try to piece together my own clues to figure it out before the ending of the book. The intensity between Shauna and Zach is crazy because you have Zach trying so hard to make amends for the guilt he feels for Jack's death, and he also has to win over Shauna's trust to allow him to help her, even when she is fighting against her own personal feelings towards him. Let's just say I know you will LOVE how this one all plays out in the end. Well worth all 5 out of 5 stars in this reader's opinion.

    The View from Rainshadow Bay (Lavender Tides #1)

    by Colleen Coble

    SUMMARY: Its been a year since her husbands death in a tragic rock-climbing accident, and Shauna struggles to raise their young son and make ends meet. A friends final words to her before he is murdered convinces Shauna she is in danger. She teams up with her husbands best friend to unravel secrets that have been around since her childhood.

    MY REVIEW: Well, I wonder if Im the only one who has never read Colleen Coble before? I admit I picked this one up because I love the smell of lavender and its got a gorgeous cover. LOL. Although murder mysteries are not my usual cup of tea (because I never know whodunnit until the author reveals it!), I have seen this authors books everywhere and thought Why not? And I was pleasantly surprised. I actually enjoyed it!

    I really liked the characters. They felt realistic in their struggles with their faith and with their grief. There was enough doubt cast on various characters in the story to make you suspect several, and yet a few surprises were also thrown in. I would recommend it to my friends, and I will be purchasing this one for our church library. I also plan to read rest of the series when they are published. Hmm, perhaps Colleen Coble will get me hooked on murder mysteries!

    The only thing I felt was off in the story was that the killer seemed so much more cold-hearted in the beginning than the end. At the end, he didnt really want to kill again. I dont know it just seemed inconsistent with the development of his character at the beginning.

    MY RATING: 4 stars. I decided to go ahead and give it 4 stars despite the off feeling with the killer at the end. I did really enjoy the story. It kept me wanting to read to find out what happened.

    At my request, I received a free electronic copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not required to give a positive review. This review reflects my honest thoughts and opinions on the book, and I received no compensation for this review other than getting to keep the e-book.

    Colleen Coble's mystery reads are some of my favorites. In this particular book, The View from Rainshadow Bay, I thought the suspense was quite well intoned. Since the setting of the story is in Washington state where the beautiful lavender fields produce quite an artistic flair to this wonderful story.

    Shauna is trying with all her might to make a go of it since her husband, Jack, died. She's doing her best to raise their son and keep her sanity.

    Then her business partner is murdered. And it seems that she and her son are now in grave danger. The one person she knows might be able to help her is also the one person she blames for her husband's death, Zach Bannister.

    But Zach wants to help Shauna. He feels guilty but he knows he might be the one person that can help her stay safe.

    What a story! Loved the suspense and the mystery. Honestly had a hard time figuring out the "one" who is guilty.

    This book does not fail to capture the reader's interest from the very beginning. From prologue through the epilogue, it was a hard book to put down. Shauna's husband, Jack, died in a climbing accident she blamed on his best friend, Zach. Can she ever forgive him? She is barely holding things together for her son and herself. On top of that, her business partner is murdered as she is leaving his house. What is going on? As usual, Colleen Cable weaves a masterful story of intrigue and danger that does not disappoint the reader. I'm looking forward to future books in this series.
