Many thanks to Wendy, Gina, Cheryl and Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I super loved this book. I just finished it and my fingers were trembling with the adrenaline rush. This book was the perfect example of how a romantic suspense ought to be.
Harper wanted to find her family. Her DNA testing brought her to a half-sister Annabelle and the murky darkness of the past where both their mothers had been murdered. Both the women too were in danger as an intruder in ski mask kept trying to kidnap them and kill the others. Ridge, the son of her mentor, soon let go of his bitterness and see her with new eyes. The two investigated the deaths happening around them, past and the present.
My first book by author Colleen Coble, and she has a fan in me. The story was the perfect combination where strands of the past were woven into the present, and the truth came out insidiously page after page, creeping up on me. The author created a setting so powerful that every moment showed the danger that the two were in. The writing had the power to enfold me with the thrill of its words.
The book was fast, spot on with the scenes where the almost non stop action caught me and threw me into the spirals of suspense. I could barely hold on, but never afraid to sink as I was sure the author would keep the book rushing till the last page.
The twin pillars of a thriller, suspense and mystery, were never as strongly written as they were in this book. The pulse rate slowly reached to skyrocketting levels with each chapter and the last finale was BOOM.
Absolutely freaking fantastic!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Harper Taylor is used to being alone. Her mother passed away in a car accident when she was an infant, she never knew who her father was, and now even the widowed grandmother who raised her is gone. She’s done just fine investing her marine biology degree and her energy into her pen shell business.
The last thing she expects is for the DNA test she took to reveal a likely half-sister. And when she and Annabelle meet, there are striking similarities in their stories. Is it just coincidence that both their mothers died tragically without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name?
When Harper’s business partner has a stroke, his son Ridge steps in to help. Before long, he’s spending more time with her than the business would dictate . . . and Harper finds she doesn’t mind in the least.
When yet another tragedy strikes close to home, though, Harper and Ridge realize that the secrets of the past can’t stay there. They’ll have to unravel Harper’s past before they can secure their future.
