“I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”

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.

What a great story! I enjoyed the first two Sunset Cover Novels, which shared a setting but otherwise stood alone, and I was thrilled to discover that this third book focuses on a character of the first book, Claire's reunited twin, Kate. As always, Colleen Coble combines wonderful characters, a great plot, and a heart-pounding suspense to create a captivating tale that is impossible to put down. From the opening scene until the final resolution, I couldn't turn the pages--or rather, swipe the screen!--fast enough. Coble perfectly balances the romance and mystery, and she gives just enough details to make my heart race at the creepy moments without keeping me awake at night. Numerous twists and turns escalate the danger and mystery as the book progresses to its multi-faceted climax. I love the portrayal of Claire and Kate's relationship and how they, especially Kate, grow throughout the story. While this can be read as a stand-alone, it will have fuller meaning if you have read The Inn at Ocean's Edge. Whatever you do, don't miss Twilight at Blueberry Barrens.
