About this Book

As Christmas day nears, Bree and her faithful search-and-rescue dog Samson follow the trail of a troubling mystery into the snowy forests of Rock Harbor.

Bree Matthews is preparing for Christmas guests, but her heart is reeling from the recent and tender loss of her unborn child. Her sister-in-law, Lauri, suddenly turns up on the doorstep of the lighthouse home Bree shares with her husband, Kade, in Rock Harbor. Secretive and withdrawn, Lauri seems curiously intent on discovering what happened to a parachuter who disappeared in the North Woods along Lake Superior’s icy shore.

As Bree and Samson, her search-and-rescue dog, plunge into the search, Bree wonders if Lauri may know more than she’s admitted about the parachuter. And then the clues lead them to the trail of a young woman whose family fears the worst about her disappearance.

Will the search on this snowy, silent night lead Bree and Samson to more than clues about the missing girl? And will Bree’s prayer for a baby ever be answered?

My Review

First off, I want to thank Thomas Nelson and Colleen Coble for taking us back to Rock Harbor with Bree, Samson, and the rest of the family. I love this series and thoroughly enjoyed this installment.

Christmas is coming and although Bree and Kade are preparing for family to arrive their hearts are heavy. Bree like many women is struggling with infertility, which is weighing heavily on her heart as well as Kade’s. Things become more stressful when Lauri arrives home two weeks ahead of schedule and is being evasive on the reason why.

Even in this short novel Colleen Coble draws the reader quickly into the story. The mystery behind the Lauri’s behavior and her relationship with a young man killed in a parachuting accident will keep you guessing. It’s a feel good Christmas story.

As a fan of the Rock Harbor series and many of Colleen Coble’s other books the timeline of this one bugged me at first. But I quickly got over it and enjoyed the series. I hope we get the opportunity to see Bree, Kade, Samson and the rest of the family in future books.

I’d recommend this for anyone looking for a quick and touching Christmas story. I tend to enjoy reading a series in order but this would be a great introduction to Rock Harbor series.
