Twilight at Blueberry Barrens Book Review


 About the Book

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. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I can't stop staring at this cover. It is stunning! Colleen always has lovely covers but this one really grabs me. Anyway, cover aside, this story was great! I am loving Colleen's suspense and this book captured my attention right away. You have a crazy stalker, an evil man, an escapee from prison, and of course- murder. Not to mention two children and the sweetest lady who has no problem telling people her opinion. Now Drake wasn't my favorite at first, I had to warm up to him and get to know him better throughout the book. 
Of course there is a marvelous setting, and good secondary characters that tie this novel together. Solid ending and good story telling make this a five star book.
