I have read quite a few of Colleen Coble's novels and I have come to expect a good mystery that keeps me guessing until the end. So far I have yet to be disappointed. Twilight at Blueberry Barren starts of with page turning suspense and the story held me firm in its grips until the last page. The love story was a bit predictable. I knew within the first two chapters who was going to get paired together. That was okay though. I really liked both characters and even though there is plenty of romance the main focus is not on the love, its on solving a mystery.
Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come up with alternative ways to make a living.
Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his family.
The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance.
Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last.
If you have yet to read any of Colleen Coble's books and you love romance mysteries I encourage you to pick up this series. It's been great!
