Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble

346 pages
Series: Sunset Cove # 3

About the Book:

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.
Set on the beautiful coast of Maine, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens brings together suspense, romance, and the hope that one day new life will come again.

My Rating & Thoughts:   🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (5 stars)


Best of the series! Filled with suspense, intrigue and romance. Features familiar characters from the previous books as well as introducing a few new ones. There were a couple mysteries happening at once and I was pretty sure I knew who was behind one of them (turned out I was correct), but the other kept me guessing. I liked how the villains interacted in the action-packed ending. There were a few moments that had me tense up hoping things would turn out alright for everyone. On the romance side, I liked Drake as soon as I got to know him a little bit; the love he showed his nieces demonstrated that he was a good guy. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it, but he also wasn’t pushy with Kate either. I really enjoyed seeing Kate learn to go after her dreams rather than playing it safe and being a people pleaser. I was pleased with the ending, it felt complete. I would definitely recommend reading the previous two books before this one to get to know more of the background story that continues in this one.
