My Review

We are back in Rock Harbor with Bree, Kade, the kids and of course, Samson. Although Bree and Samson play an important role in this story the focus is on Dana and Boone. Dana returns home to get away from her abusive fiancé. Shortly, after arriving her dear friend, Allyson is killed by a serial killer dubbed, the Groom Reaper.

This story is intense and the author does a great job giving very small hints. Took me awhile to figure out who the Groom Reaper was, but I felt good because it took Dana even longer. 😉

I loved Boone! He had been deeply hurt both physically and emotionally. Watching the relationship between him and Dana grow was precious.

Although part of the Rock Harbor series you can read this one without reading the others. (However, I highly recommend the Rock Harbor Series, it is one of Colleen Coble’s best!)

Review: Because You’re Mine – by Colleen Coble

About this Book

Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems.

When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn’t know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can’t lose the last piece of Liam she has left.

Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution . . . but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry’s family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp.

To make matters worse, Liam’s best friend survived the car bomb. She’s never really liked Jesse and now she can’t seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam’s place in their band, it’s almost more than she can bear.

But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life—or the life of her unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?

My Review

Let me first say I’m a HUGE Colleen Coble fan. I try to read everything she writes. She develops great characters and story lines. With that being said, I was disappointed in this story. Although I enjoyed most of the characters I found the plot very predictable.  (Maybe I grew up watching too many soap operas!)

I loved Alanna’s spunk and her passion for her music and Liam. They truly had a special relationship. I did feel for Alanna when it came to her family situation and the heartaches and hurts she experienced since childhood. I enjoyed learning more about the “Travelers” community and some of the Irish tales.

Again, for me the story line was very predictable.

Will I read the next book Colleen Coble releases?  YOU BET!  She’s an excellent author and always worth reading.

I give this book 3 1/2 Stars.
