Midnight Sea


GIVEAWAY
 
COBLE, COLLEEN
MIDNIGHT SEA

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. Suspicious grows that this was not a random shooting, but an attempted murder, one with its roots in a hippie commune burned over thirty years ago. Lani realizes she is a target, and that she must find the shooter before he strikes again.

My |Review:

Published in 2007

Colleen Coble delivers another edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense in this fourth (and final) book in the Aloha Reef series. The books all read well as standalones so no worries if you haven't read the other novels. If you have though, you'll recognize Lani as the 'wild' child' Tagama sister, but now, as a new Christian, she is trying to put that past behind her for good. Trouble is, not everyone is willing to forget. Including Ben, who holds a pretty big grudge against her. Perfect fodder for an angsty love story.

Not that this story really needs any more angst courtesy of the riveting suspense plot. There's murder, smuggling and danger lurking around every corner. And I just have to mention Fisher, the work-in-progress guide dog! I do love a great canine character to mix things up! A heart-pounding thrill of a read.

    1. She's an author that keeps delivering excellent romantic suspense, isn't she? She has a new one coming out this summer as well. Looking forward to reading it too. Good luck, Becky.

  4. I am a huge Colleen Coble fan and would love to win a copy of Midnight Sea. I have read the rest in the series but it was quite some time ago. I borrowed them from our library which as of last week is closed down indefinitely due to a fire that happened last Sunday. It is so sad.

    Blessings,

    1. Oh no -- Cindy -- that's awful!!!! I shudder to think of all the books lost in a fire!!!! I hope they are able to rebuild -- but trying restore their collection? Sadly, that's not likely. So sad. Good luck, Cindy.

    2. The library was beautiful inside and out. The outside still looks normal but they say all the books in the newer (1997) part of the library were lost and the historic (1910) part of the library the books are questionable due to heat and smoke. They have a "clean up team" in now that cleans up after fires and they'll know more after that is done. The Christian book section was actually in the historic part of the library.
