About the Book:
Release Date: September 10, 2019
Harper Taylor is used to being alone—after all, she grew up in one foster home after another. Oliver Jackson finally took her under his wing when she was a runaway teenager, and now Harper pours her marine biology knowledge into Oliver’s pen shell research. But she’s never stopped wishing for a family of her own.
So when a DNA test reveals a half-sister living just two hours away, Harper is both hopeful and nervous. Over warm cinnamon rolls, Harper and Annabelle find striking similarities in their stories. Is it just a coincidence that both their mothers died tragically, without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name?
Oliver’s son Ridge still sees Harper as a troubled teen even all these years later. But when Oliver is attacked, Ridge and Harper find themselves working together to uncover dangerous secrets that threaten to destroy them all. They must unravel her past before they can have any hope for the future.
Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld in this engrossing new novel from USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble.

Colleen Coble has been a favourite suspense author of mine for some time.
Waiting for a new book is like waiting for a serving of delicious food. You wait and wait for it , then devour it as quickly as possible. This author dishes up novels full of heart pounding suspense and mystery, keeping the reader tense and on the edge of her chair, from beginning to end. This time, Colleen has managed to use interwoven tales that seemingly are unrelated. Readers are kept guessing as to what will eventually be the connection. This was also a learning experience. I had no knowledge of the uses of deep sea creatures, previous to this.
The characters are described in a realistic, detailed way, making them easy with whom to identify. Harper's quest for her birth father became mine as I travelled alongside her at this difficult time in her life. I felt her highs as well as her lows as she travelled this roller coaster called life. Each character had their own quirks, desires and fears.
The plot was outstanding as Coble displays her unique talent of taking two tales and creating a plot of intrigue, deception and a very frightening tale, finally showing the connection near the end of the story. The fast pace kept me guessing as to what would happen next. Twists and turns appeared at the most unexpected times. The world passed me by as I just could not put this book down!!
A fabulous new story of suspense, worthy of five stars!
I am eagerly awaiting the next one!!
This book was a gift. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.
