Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Collen Coble

About this Book

“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.

My Review

The third installment of the Sunset Cove series and I think probably the best one of the series. We met Kate in book one of the series, The Inn at Ocean’s Edge.  We learn that she has a serious illness and she needs help from her biological father, who had never acknowledged her.  It was evident in the first book that Kate was strong and determined.

In book three she is healing physically but faces financial challenges with the failing blueberry barrens. When she and her sister, Claire, discover an apparent murder suicide her world is turned upside down.

I loved how Kate tackled life and never let it get her down. When she meets Drake and his nieces she not only finds a renter and a job as a nanny but she finds a friend. Drake is a great leading man for the story. He is strong, smart, and wants to help his nieces heal in the midst of their tragedy.

The action is well paced and well done. The author drops a few clues along the way to allow the reader to determine who the antagonist is. There was a little misdirection in there to keep me from being 100% sure.

If you have enjoyed the other books in this series, I believe this one is the best. Although this is a book three in the series, you could read it independently of the others and still enjoy it. The author gives enough back story to understand the basic relationships.
