Even though secrets lie off the coast of Rock Harbor, the truth will set Annie Pederson free—if it doesn’t kill her first.
Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.
But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.
At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.
In this new series, bestselling romantic-suspense author Colleen Coble returns to one of her most beloved towns, where familiar faces—and unsolved cases—await.
Edge of Dusk by Colleen Coble is the first exciting read in the Annie Pederson’s series. This female ranger has been through a lot of tragedy. From losing her sister at a young age to losing both of her parents and finally, losing her husband, Annie has a suffered tremendously. Yet, she finds a dead body and starts to connect it to the others. Then, to add to the dramatic flair and intensity of the plot, Annie’s old love interest is back. Someone is now targeting the ranger and won’t stop from keeping the past in the past. It will take everything Annie has and more to get through the deadly stakes.
I love how Colleen Coble creates a strong protagonist. Annie is fierce, smart, and independent. But she also has enough flaws to make her realistic. I rooted for Annie the entire time. I became deeply invested in her life and love mess. There is plenty of danger and action. No boring moment in this book! Exciting, suspenseful, and romantic and deep. Overall, I loved this novel and cannot wait for the next one!
Great review! I read this and felt exactly the same. 🙂
