Edge of Dusk is the first book in Colleen Coble’s An Annie Pederson Novel series. This story takes us bask to Rock Harbor. When Annie was nine years old her sister was kidnapped. Now she is a single mom, a law enforcement ranger and is running her parents resort.
This is a nicely written story with likeable characters. The story is easy to envision and hard to put down. I totally enjoyed this story. It is filled with action, mystery, suspense and romance. I was suspicious of the person Annie hired to help with her daughter and the resort. I liked how helpful Jon was for Annie and how he helped her understand her daughter’s health condition. Even with how Annie’s daughter treated him, he was there for them and put them first.
I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this book, this is my honest review.
About the Book
Even though secrets lie off the coast of Rock Harbor, the truth will set Annie Pederson free—if it doesn’t kill her first. Return to the beloved town of Rock Harbor in the first installment of a new series by bestselling suspense author Colleen Coble.
Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.
But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.
At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.
In this new series, bestselling romantic-suspense author Colleen Coble returns to one of her most beloved towns, where familiar faces—and unsolved cases—await.
