Action, Suspense, Mystery, Adventure - Has it all and Family, too! Excellent Read!
Reviewed in the United States on October 23, 2016
The Rock Harbor Mystery Collection by Colleen Coble -- First, although I normally hate series books (where the main character's lives continue through book after book with all of their angst), I LOVED this series. (I do like series books where one book revolves mainly around a couple of characters and the following books pick up and follow the lives of a character/s introduced in first book so that each book is actually a stand alone book.) Each book was well written, good character development, good set development, etc and lots of suspense with a few twists. Although, in my opinion, there were some lesser parts which were somewhat boring repetition but not enough to detract from the story as a whole. Apparently, this series was an earlier work of Mrs. Coble. There was love, desperation, who dunit and some angst (but not overly so in my opinion). Each book could have been a stand alone but one really needs to read all of the books to get the big picture. There was no sex (Oh, wow, an excellent series with no sex! Go figure!) The violence was implied not descriptive (What! Now we have to engage the imagination?! Horrors!) There is romance, although I thought we were going to lose Cade for awhile there. For me, the most difficult book of the series to read regarded Samson and dog fights. I feel very strongly against such things and thought I would not make it through that particular book. Spoiler Alert: it turned out well. Colleen Coble covered many issues which Christian and non Christians face and dealt with them well. This series is an action/adventure/mystery series with no preachy passages. There is a lot of suspense and a very surprising twist in one of these books. I recommend this book for all ages. I would love to see another book with Bree and Cade and their wonderful family. I have read most of Colleen Coble's books and enjoy them thoroughly. I do feel, personally, that this is one of her best books/series. Sadly, there is no Audible for this series. I usually get the Audible versions. I would love to hear Aimee Lilly do more of the Audibles for these books. Sorry, Mrs. Coble, but Devon O'Day puts me to sleep. :) God bless you and may He inspire you with more such books!
