Folding back the cover of my kindle, I cozied down under the duvet to tuck into the latest from Colleen Coble, The View from Rainshadow Bay. 10 minutes in, I snapped it closed, eyes wide, and vowed to read the rest in daylight! It is a brilliant thriller from the first page to the last! I read it in one, day-time, sitting enjoying its fast pace and interesting plot. It is spine-chillingly realistic with great, unexpected twists. Both Shauna and Zach are easy to connect with and I hope to see them both in future books in this series. The writing is rich with wonderful descriptions of the area and multi-faceted characters. It’s a five out of five, I highly recommend it!

From the back cover:

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.

Thank you to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson for the advance copy.
