This is the third book in the Pelican Harbor series by Colleen Coble. 


I really came into this book with no expectations. This was a new author for me. And I found it cleverly written with a lot of heart.


This focuses mostly on the Chief of Police Jane Hardy and her family. A local murder comes to their doorstep putting a lot of pressure on everyone. There are secrets revealed and a lot of suspects and avenues to wander down. This mad the book quite a compelling read.


If you would have asked me if I thought this was a Christian book, I would have said no. About halfway through, Jane’s 15-year-old son is put in jail for murder and then you could truly tell this was a Christian book. For some reason this didn’t really seem like a series finale. I thought it was a standalone. It can totally be read as one. I didn’t have trouble figuring out what was going on and I didn’t wonder about the backstory since it all seemed to be explained as I read along.


The cast stood out to me. This could be any family. It just grips you and holds you hostage until the conclusion. This is quite a page turner so you might not want to start it before you go to bed. You will stay up all night for sure with this unputdownable read.


If you love a good Christian suspense contemporary mystery, definitely check this one out.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
