Dana has already learned that love isn’t safe . . . but could it be different in Rock Harbor?
As a 911 dispatcher, Dana Newell takes pride in being calm in tough circumstances. In addition to her emotionally-charged career, she’s faced enough emergencies in her own life. She recently escaped her abusive fiancé to move to tranquil Rock Harbor where she hopes life will be more peaceful.
But the idyllic town hides more danger and secrets than it first appeared. Dana is continually drawn to her new friend Boone, who has scars inside and out. Then she answers a call at her job only to hear a friend’s desperate screams on the other end. Soon the pain in her past collides with the mysteries of her new home—and threatens to keep her from the future she’s always wanted.
Colleen Coble has proven once again why she is Royalty in a big field of Christian Fiction with her forte of Romantic Suspense.
Beneath Copper Falls is an elegant and respectful look at the dangers of being in an abusive relationship. Particularly when the abuser is psychopathic enough to appear to everyone else but his victim that he’s an outstanding guy deserving of more than being labeled the villain. Unfortunately too often women end up with PTSD and/or other forms of trauma from being kept far too long in these relationships because they either don’t have access or feel like they don’t to an escape route which Coble has exemplified in her story.
Coble’s keen character development and empathy for the human condition comes pouring forth from her dialogue and how she sets up the personalities involved in her story.
If you’ve been a fan of her Rock Harbor series then many of the characters and settings will be familiar as Bree Matthews returns with her trusty search-and-rescue companion.
It’s an excellent book as Coble handled such a difficult issue with grace and respect. It’s also a reminder that people need to listen better and not assume that a great personality mixed with a gorgeous face makes someone automatically innocent – even the Devil has been described as the most beautiful of them all.
