Book Review ~ Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble ~ 8/31/17

Twilight at Blueberry Barrens (Sunset Cove #3)
“I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come up with alternative ways to make a living.

Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his family.

The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance.

Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last.

Set on the beautiful coast of Maine, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens brings together suspense, romance, and the hope that one day new life will come again.     

My Thoughts:
 Well, I'll just be honest.
This wasn't my favorite Colleen Coble novel.
The beginning was a bit confusing with at least 4 POVs.  If you hadn't read the previous books, you would be even more confused as the previous main characters had a fairly large part of this book.
I also wasn't extremely thrilled with some of the subject matter.  Was it realistic?  Yes.  But...I don't necessarily want all the bad realism of the world in a book I'm reading.
I had figured out the ONE "bad guy" about half way through the book.  Yes, there was more than one "bad guy".   There were at last 3 that I counted.
The romance was nice, but I don't think I would have kept the little girls around the situations that were arising.  I would have sent them far away until all was safe.
Not a favorite :(

If you've read this book, what did you think?
